NEW YORK, Nov 19 — Fans of New Zealand rugby star Dan Carter, the all-time highest international point scorer, can pick up Adidas’s new limited collector’s edition boots designed in his honor: the DC100 Predator Incurza.
Adidas just announced that 100 box sets have been created in a special color chosen by Carter—gold—and are available only in Carter’s boot size, 11. Designed to honor his upcoming 100th test match for New Zealand’s All Blacks team, each boot showcases a number of special details including Carter’s All Blacks number #1034, his signature, the All Blacks Fern, and the number of the boot from 1 to 100. But you’ll have to live in New Zealand to get your hands on a pair, which are likely going fast.
“I started my international career back in 2003 wearing Adidas Predators,” Carter said in a statement. “To this day I have continued to wear the Adidas Predator boots. It’s easy for me to say, I think they’re amazing boots.”
Carter made his international debut in 2003 against Wales in Hamilton where he scored 22 points and has gone on to become one of the greatest All Blacks of all time. Carter was IRB player of the year twice, in 2005 and 2012, won four Super Rugby titles, seven Tri Nations, eight Bledisloe Cup titles and was part of the 2011 Rugby World Cup winning squad.
The limited edition DC100 boots have a recommended retail price of US$400 NZD/around US$333 USD. Purchase yours from adidas.co.nz, allblacksshop.com, or select Adidas stores in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. —AFP-Relaxnews
