Notes - Pro model Absolute boots from the iconic Adidas Predator silo in 2005. This unique model was designed by David Beckham and used by the former England captain during the run up to the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Unlike other top versions of the Absolute, this special edition is made with a lightweight synthetic instead of the 'K' leather more commonly used on the silo due to the preferences of Beckham himself. The signature rubber 'fins' on the forefront and elasticated tongue both feature as they have done every edition of the boot since original release in 1994. The outsole uses Powerpulse technology to improve with shot power as used on the Predator Pulse, while an Adidas TRX configuration made up of 13 moulded studs offer high levels of traction on firm ground surfaces. Beckham notably used this striking red and silver colourway whilst captaining England for the 50th time during a memorable 3-2 win over Argentina in Geneva.
