The DC100, a boot specially created for one of the best players to ever play rugby, New Zealand & Crusaders Dan Carter.
The boots celebrated his 100th test match for the All Blacks, playing against England at Twickenham, that didn’t go as well, Carter having to come off injured before half-time.
Carter collaborated with adidas to create a limited edition set of boots in Carter’s honour – The DC100 Predator Incurza. Only 100 box sets have been created of the Predator Incurza XT in a special colour way chosen by Carter, and are available only in Carter’s boot size, 11. 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 of 100.
Carter said: “I started my international career back in 2003 wearing adidas Predators. 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. So when adidas asked me if I wanted to help them design a custom pair of Predators to mark my 100th test, I was really keen to get involved,”
“When designing the boots I took inspiration from the colours and styles of my favourite Predators over the years, as well as the various teams I’ve played for.”
“100 games is such an extraordinary feat. We wanted to do something special to recognise DC and what he has given to the All Blacks and the game in general over the years. He has also worked alongside us for the last 10 years and renewed his relationship with adidas through to 2016,” says adidas New Zealand Country Manager Quentin Bleakley.
