Adidas Limited Edition Remakes
It’s no secret that soccer has been around for a very long time, and one of the first brands to be part of this beautiful long-lasting sport is the German powerhouse Adidas. With over 70 years of soccer history, Adidas has had quite the impact on the sport with dozens of breakthrough products and designs. These breakthroughs are not forgotten, and many remain in the nostalgic minds of fans all over the globe.
Limited edition releases have become quite popular amongst the football industry, with collectors and resell markets becoming larger and larger every year. Adidas is one brand that has never been shy to these limited releases, especially in the last 5 years. With the exciting return of their beloved and iconic Predator line in 2017, Adidas have launched limited edition re-releases of classic Predator models (dating as late as 1998) as a way to build excitement and hype behind their forever iconic silo.
In the past year, Adidas have amplified their Predator remakes by launching multiple diverse limited editions packs. Multiple Predator models such as the Absolutes, Pulse's, Accelerator's and Mania's were all released. Some sizes remain for sale of the UCL inspired Predator Pulse and Legends Pack Predator Pulse.
Their secret recipe is quite simple, take the entire upper of the original boot from whichever year it released, and place it on a modern soleplate. After the popularity of these remakes in recent years, Adidas has been releasing these models in greater quantities but always at a higher price points.
Alongside the Predator, Adidas have also released modern remakes of other past models.
For the pure leather enthusiasts, Adidas they have released limited editions of their Copa Mundial and AdiPure lines in the form of the all black Copa Mundial 21 FG and Legends Pack AdiPure 1 remake.
Same recipe as the Predator, the classic upper used way back on the initial release, but placed upon a modern soleplate and stud-pattern.
However leather remakes can only go so far in the modern world. That is why Adidas also remade a few speed models for the curious teen who never experience the magic that was an F50.
Many different colors and variations of the F50 have be remade and released in limited editions: From the first F50 Adizero back in 2010, to the F50 Adizero Crazylight's that shattered records in the lightweight boot category when released. Available now are the most recent UCL inspired F50 Ghosted Adizero Prime remakes and the F50 Ghosted Legendary Pack remake.
To add a cherry on all these launches, Adidas even went a step further and released flat-soled versions of these remakes for casual street wear. With football products becoming more connected to casual wear, Adidas took the Predator and the Copa remakes and placed them on boost outsoles for the casual fan wanting to wear them off the pitch and on the streets. The Copa Mundial 21 TR took more of a futsal approach whereas the Predator Accelerator TR took a more casual street wear twist.
Due to the limited release quantities, these models are not part of Adidas' regularly offered lineup. Meaning the price point will remain higher than most ordinary current footwear offerings. Quantities are depleting so if you're a fan of old-school nostalgia, now is your chance to pickup a pair before they run out!
