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 remain at they have on every edition of the boot since release in 1994, along with the popular elasticated tongue that was introduced on the 2002 Mania. The outsole uses Powerpulse technology to improve weight shift into strikes, while an Adidas 'TRAXION' configuration made up of 13 moulded studs offer 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.
