Update: The Predator Is Not Coming Back

Update:@thepredcollective have lifted the mystery and opened the black 'guess who's back' box, and unfortunately it was all a prank. Read our original article below.

This is hopefully no April Fools' joke. A mysterious box suggests that Adidas could bring back the iconic Adidas Predator Football Boot in 2016. The Adidas Predator silo was shelved in 2015 together with Adidas' three other boot silos, the Adidas F50 Adizero, Adipure 11pro and Nitrocharge.

Maybe next year eh!?! @adidasuk @adidasfootball

Adidas Predator to Return in 2016

Here are the two images that create the rumor (via @thepredcollective).


However, while there is no official information yet if Adidas will really bring back the Predator in 2016, the black box that was sent to Adidas boots collector @thepredcollective features several aspects that indicate a re-release of the Predator.

First, the box comes with the Predator Instinct logo. Second, it features the Hashtag #guesswhosback. Third, it features the lettering @adidasuk. But there is one sign that is making us doubt if the Three Stripes will really re-launch the iconic cleats. The box comes with an image that is typical for April Fools' day....
