The Adidas Predator at 25: the football boot that changed all boots

It’s been 25 years since the creation of one of the most iconic boots in football. The Adidas Predator became instantly recognisable due to its unique design and fearless advertising. A design made by former Liverpool midfielder Craig Johnston, who decided to stick the outside of a table tennis bat to the top of the shoe. After countless rejections Adidas took a chance on the shoe. Since then, with many new designs and improvements along the way, it has become a figurehead in football boot design.
