Notes - Elite-model signature Absolute boots from the iconic Adidas Predator silo in 2006. This unique model was designed by David Beckham and used by the former England captain at the World Cup in Germany that summer. Unlike other top versions of the Absolute, this unqiue incarnation is made from synthetic instead of the 'K' leather upper more commonly used on the silo due to the preferences of Beckham himself. The signature rubber 'fins' on the forefront and fold-over tongue both feature as they had done every edition of the boot since original release in 1994. The outsole uses Powerpulse technology to enhance shot power as used on the Predator Pulse, while an Adidas 'TRAXION' configuration made up of 13 moulded studs offer high levels of traction on firm ground surfaces. Beckham used this striking blue, silver and red trim colourway during every game at the competition before the Three Lions crashed out on penalties to Portugal in the quarter-final.
