17 years ago, Adidas released the first model of its Predator range of boots. This year, the German manufacturer has released its 11th model, the adiPower Predator TRX FG, and if you’re in the market for a new pair of football boots, look no further.
From an aesthetic standpoint, these boots will grab your attention, and they’ll grab everyone else’s as well. Firstly, you won’t feel like you have lead feet, as they weigh in at only 8.2 ounces (230 grams).
For color options, you can either go with sharp blue/electricity/black or white/black/blue. No matter what color option you choose, the boots will instantly draw plenty of attention, but the performance will be the real attention-grabber.
But as nice as the boots are to look at, they’re even better to play in, due to several new features. One of the new, exciting features Adidas has introduced with this line of boots is the Predator element. The Predator element, which is installed on the medial side of the boot, is an injected silicone-rubber component that has been welded onto the base material, and it’s designed for you to be able to control and swerve the ball perfectly, rain or shine.
That’s not the only change in this model, as the new adiPower Predator boot also includes the lightweight Sprint Frame soleplate, which helps to make the boot weigh 25% less than the previous Predator boot. The Sprint Frame soleplate includes the reintroduced PowerSpine, which, as the name would indicate, allows you to put even more power into your shots.
Also, the new Predator includes an Alcantara leather-like soft heel lining, which is not only comfortable but also helps to keep your foot in place.
Also, Taurus leather, a Traxion outsole that allows for optimum grip and stud pressure distribution, plus their new hybrid stud configuration, which is a mix of exchangeable round aluminum studs and molded TPU firm ground studs, make these boots a can’t miss.
Some of the world’s top footballers, like Manchester United star Nani, Arsenal’s Robin van Persie, and Real Madrid star and former World Player of the Year Kaka, show off their skills in these boots, and at a price of £115, so can you.
