Like its football boot counterpart, the sneaker — nicknamed “Japan Blue” — takes its name from the “Royal Blue” colorway found on the upper that rose to fame during the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Japan and South Korea. This bright shade is joined by white and “Active Red” components all around, highlighting signature components such as the three stripes, UltraBOOST-branded chrome heel cup and the fold-over tongue.
Premium K-leather has been used on the Predator Mania TR’s upper, while a Continental-lined BOOST sole unit contrasts the bold palette with its stark white finish. Take a look at the adidas Football Predator Mania TR in “Royal Blue” in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself from retailers such as Pro:Direct Soccer for $250 USD.
