Drop Zone: adidas Predator

It’s back! Most people will have owned or worn a pair of Predators in the past and we’re buzzing they’ve brought them back. Returning to replace the Ace, the Predator will be the boot of choice for the control player and you can grab yours now from Kitbag. In the past worn by legends such as Beckham, Zidane, Gerrard and Lampard, the current generation of players to wear these will be the likes of Pogba, Dele Alli and Mezut Ozil. Here’s the lo’ down on them!

History

First released in 1994, the Predator has been worn by the world’s best and scored some of the best goals in history. From Beckham’s goal from inside his own half with the Predator Touch to Zidane’s volley at Hampden in the Predator Mania and THAT free kick against Greece at Old Trafford in the Predator Precision, the Predator is a football icon. Historically all black with white and red detail, the Predator was last seen in 2015 when adidas replaced it with the Ace. Now adidas have brought it back with a classy looking black and white look with bronze detail!

 

What’s new?

They will still have all the usual tech of an Ace: Prime Knit Upper make your foot feel locked in the boot, Controlframe gives you the movement to spray the ball around and Controlskin helps with your touch.

What we sayin?

You’ve got to love the return of a legend and the Predator is associated with a golden era of football. Former greats such as Del Piero, Kaka, Xabi Alonso, were tearing the world of football up in these boots and these look good as well. Simple black and white design with a bronze trim, you can tell adidas have gone all out on this. We’ve got a feeling these won’t last long and they will appear as quite a few stocking fillers this Christmas as well!
