Today adidas Football has unveiled a new capsule with one of their most iconic athletes, David Beckham. The collection honors a fruitful partnership that spanned over two decades between Becks and The Three Stripes. At the center of it all was the adidas Predator Accelerator.
David Beckham said: “When I look back on the best moments of my career, the one defining theme of them all is the adidas Predator. It has always been there, helping me play my best when it mattered most. That’s why when adidas offered me the chance to design an updated version of the boot for on-pitch, in the cage and on the street, I absolutely jumped at the chance.”
Surprisingly Beckham himself had an integral role on the creation of the collection. adidas documented the entire process as the Icon met with designers in London for concept meetings then Germany for design briefs. During conceptualization Becks calls the Accelerator his favorite boot before taking about red, white and black being the most important colors of his career. Thus the inspiration for the triple red cage, triple black street and triple white pitch iterations that make up the collection.
We could go on and about the brilliant and poignant details of each silo, but the video below is so incredibly well done that we highly recommend you just take 15 minutes and enjoy.
