It’s good to see that even a forward-thinking football boots company like adidas always seems to have room for the classics! Whilst it might not be the ‘lead’ colourway, we have little doubt that’s going to tarnish the popularity of the new adidas adiPower Predator – Black/White/Red!
Going way back to 1994, adidas brought out the original Predator and changed the way we thought about football boots. Rather than being functional, sporting pieces of footwear – as many boots were at the time – the Predator brought a sense of danger and excitement, both with the name and adding a splash of red to the regulation black-with-white-stripes upper.
Ever since, adidas have launched every incarnation in this timeless colourway – with their 11th entry in 17 years no exception, as seen here in with the adidas adiPower Predator – Black/White/Red.
Almost unrecognisable from their decades-old counterparts the adidas adiPower Predator – Black/White/Red does have a neat nod back to past in the form of (drumroll) a red tongue!
Whilst not the fold-over tongue many fans have been clamouring for since the launch of the Predator_X, the new, separate red tongue will surely be a welcome compromise for those who disagreed with the wrap-around collar of the X’s.
adidas have also taken time to ensure other areas of these exciting football boots received similar attention to detail, with the SG model’s colourway being complimented by metallic red studs that compliment the rest of the adidas adiPower Predator – Black/White/Red‘s design perfectly.
We’d be hard-pressed to choose between the Sharp Blue launch colourway and this classic Predator look, but we’ll have plenty of time to mull over our favourites until these classy fotball boots are released on July 15th, priced £155.
