Meet David Beckham's new football boots. They're the 'Beckham icon' version of the new Predator Pulse and Adidas reckon they're going to help him score lots more goals for Real. How so? Well, the big deal is that they apparently allow strikers to kick the ball 3% faster - so say the good folks at the Uni of Calgary (who certainly weren't fishing for tickets to Old Trafford). The secret is 40g of extra weight at the toe end.Despite all the fancy tech, the Pulse are the lightest Predators ever made, an impressive feat considering the existing ones were damn dainty. You've got Beckham himself to blame for choosing the dragon motif on the side of the boots. They'll be available to buy in July.
