    Absolutely spot on! Thanks for this article. I hope Adidas realises their mistake.

    Take your figures and cut them in in half or at least one third to account for the number of boots sold outside of adidas.com/adidas retial. They aren’t charging $300 to soccer.com for the wholesale cost of the boots.

    Total mistake, as a Belgian they are really working their way down in my opinion.
    Then again, they make money by the dozens, because well… they’re Adidas… Sad to hear, I thought there would be a massive release but helas.

    @DrBoots I actually feel like I was conservative in my estimates of the money they could have made, so I genuinely feel that it all comes out fairly the same in the end. Fantastic point though, I had not considered the wholesale cost as what I should base my numbers on.

    This is when adidas realize the mistake they’ve made and the potential to earn over $15 million and they reremake predators, but with the same leather and stitching as on the copa.  Adidas could sell them at over $500 a pair, and they’d still fly off the shelves.

    They certainly are a great looking pair of boots, but I still like the originals a bit more! 🙂

    I had my hands on a pair of these in Berlin last year. I thought they would become widely available. Biggest regret. For now I’ll have to make do with a pair of the final predator release. Fingers crossed for a re-release of the 94s…

    Hi everyone. I’m one of the kind of lucky ones as I bought a pair of the 94s but unlucky as they are half size to big so there still sat in there box. Gutted as Adidas don’t have any to exchange in my size so for now they are an ornament in my living room.
