Adidas Predator Power Swerve Football Boots
It’s been kicking around since 1994, that’s when adidas introduced the first Predator. Now, 14 years, and 9 editions later, adidas has revealed two new editions to the Predator PowerSwerve family.
The Predator football boots are famed for power, swerve and control, so think of the two new football boots as ‘souped-up’ Predators, with a different performance attribute amplified in each one.
Predator ‘POWER‘ Swerve
•Ă‚ Ă‚ Ă‚ Features an extra 10 grams of additional tungsten powder in the insole
•Ă‚ Ă‚ Ă‚ “With an extra 10g of Tungsten powder in the Power Pulse I can feel a lot more bang in my boot” – Steven Gerrard (Liverpool and England)
Predator Power ‘SWERVE‘
•Ă‚ Ă‚ Ă‚ Features additional liquid rubber on the medial vamp
•Ă‚ Ă‚ Ă‚ “You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work out how to use the swerve zone.Ă‚ Just follow through the ball and let the liquid rubber ribs take care of the curve” – Anderson (Manchester United and Brazil)
The new football boots feature Predator SMART foam on the strike zone to give extra power, swerve and control.Ă‚ In testing the football boot was found to give 3% more force and 8% more swerve than its predecessor.
The foam also adapts and changes to suit the way you kick the ball so you get maximum velocity, or shock adsorption, depending on your needs.
The dynamic Power Pulse insole features 40g of ‘Tungsten’ powder – which shifts and spreads weight in the sole to where you need it, behind the exact place of impact with the ball to get total weight transfer.
Each football boot comes with two insoles – a ‘power’ and a ‘lightweight’ version – so a simple swap allows you to customise your game.
Players: Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Anderson, Michael Ballack, Micah Richards and Dirk Kuyt.
