adidas Predator Instinct
It’s hard to believe that the iconic adidas Predator football boot is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary. These revolutionary boots caused a stir when they first launched in 1994 as they featured pieces of rubber that were designed to increase power and swerve on the ball.
The latest incarnation of the Predator boot features an increased gel pad for striking the ball, and a new outsole which is designed to provide greater support when players change direction quickly. The red, white and black colour-way is a real throwback to the traditional predator colours from its launch back in the 90’s.
It seems that every new pair of football boots these days has to be as fluorescent and bright as possible, so it is refreshing to see a slightly more understated colour-way. We may be sounding slightly old here, but we’ll happily take a classic pair of black boots any day.
