New year, new adidas Predator Precision boots

Although adidas won the sportswear World Cup with Argentina and Lionel Messi lifting the trophy, the company isn't taking any time off. On Monday, adidas launched the first strike of the 2023 boot war by dropping the Predator Precision Archive.

Throwing it back to the iconic Precision cleats of 2000, the latest releases have an all-new color way (white, black and "Team Shock Pink") and the classic fold-over tongue secured with Velcro. The Three Stripes are looking classy. 

TIL: The World Cup soccer ball needs to be charged before games

Technology has taken the reins in the soccer world. The VAR system is the clearest example of the takeover, but it's not the only one. Al Rihla, the soccer ball created by adidas for the 2022 World Cup, incorporates chips and sensors that are revolutionizing the game.

From Canada to the top: Here is our World Cup jersey ranking

With all the World Cup jerseys finally out in the wild, it's time to create a ranking with the best and worst-dressed teams in the tournament.

I'll be honest, some collections have grown on me since their launching – France and England, to name two – but others are not moving the needle.

New adidas Predator boots bring World Cup USA '94 nostalgia to life

Since launching in 1994 ahead of the United States World Cup, the adidas Predator range has become synonymous with the game's history and its most celebrated players (Zidane, Beckham, Xavi) while moving into the future after making a return five years ago.

The latest edition of the boot is the Predator Edge, which dropped last January with a two-piece PRIMEKNIT collar and rubberized ribs across the instep and toe box. Now, less than one month out from the 2022 World Cup, adidas is launching the Predator Edge 94+, which honor the OG '94 Predators.
