After an uncharacteristic blue launch colourway that was followed by the classic black/white/red edition, it was only a matter of time before adidas unveiled a white adiPower -- and it hasn't disappointed! White colourways are always popular with the Predator faithful, and the new White/Blue/Electricity adiPower Predator looks to be a great early addition to the adiPower range.
The most iconic football boot in history has returned with a radical overhaul to meet the growing demands of the modern game. At a time where speed matters, adidas have designed the lightest and most powerful adidas Predator ever. The adidas Predator adiPower tips the scales at just 235g, 25% lighter than the adidas Predator X.
Above all of the changes made to the new adiPower Predator soccer cleats, the introduction of the adidas SprintFrame, which has been a huge hit with the F50 range, is the major evolutionary leap forward for the new Predator. With less upper layers, the revolutionary outsole is 50% lighter than a standard TPU outsole and has been designed to create the entire stability across the boot. The central lacing, which sits underneath the newly designed lace cover, makes the boot suitable for various foot-shapes.
Another adidas innovation which has been successfully implemented in the F50 adiZero range, and now finds itself used for the new adiPower, is the wider boot last and redesigned foot-bed. Now featuring a wider fore-foot, sleeker mid-foot and wider heel, the new Predator adiPower last means the studs can be positioned closer to the outside of the sole. This works to give the shoes greater stability whilst improving movement, traction and pressure distribution.
Power merges with lightweight construction to create the lightest and most powerful Predator ever. The SprintFrame out-sole combines with a redesigned Predator PowerSpine, a carry-over from the Predator X, to allow additional energy transfer directly from the foot into the ball by preventing the foot from over bending. The flex grooves in the PowerSpine also ensure comfortable running movements by keeping the element highly flexible in the right direction.
The new adiPower Predator soccer shoes continue to utilise the same Taurus calf leather first introduced in the adidas Predator X. The unique Taurus material combines a natural leather look with high tearing and high abrasion qualities to offer a high-end supreme touch performance leather.
The eleventh incarnation of the adidas Predator has been 17 years in the making, and the new adidas Predator adiPower football boots are arguably the most radical version of them all. With an illustrious history, the adidas Predator continues to set new standards with each release and yet again adidas have raised the bar! All that's required now is a collection of great colourways, and from the looks of things adidas have made a great start!
With pre-season fast approaching, we're sure the new adiPower football boots will be a serious consideration for those after a new pair of boots! The White/Blue/Electricity adidas Predator adiPower will retail worldwide for around £155 GBP / $250 USD / €175 EURO. We're currently awaiting confirmation from adidas for a release date. We'll post an update as soon as we know!
