Adidas Predator Champions League Football Boots

Adidas Finale Athens BallTomorrow’s Champions League Final in Athens between Liverpool and AC Milan should perhaps be renamed the Adidas Final, as the German football boot maker not only sponsors both teams, but also will be supplying the match ball, the Adidas Finale Athens and the game will feature two of Adidas’ top players, Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard and Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, better known as Kaka of AC Milan. The two Adidas players are expected to play leading roles in the game, as both have had outstanding seasons so far, with Kaka heading the list for the Champions League Golden Boot award.

Kaka and Gerrard’s New Adidas Predator Football Boots

Adidas Predator Absolute Football Boots

Taking advantage of the estimated global audience of over one billion people, Adidas has chosen the final to showcase the launch of it’s new football boot, the Adidas Predator Absolute in black and white, which will be known as the Adidas Predator Absolute Champions League, replacing the previous red and white colourway version. Clever thinking by the boys from Herzogenaurach, even though the release date for the new football boot is 12th July 2007, a full 7 weeks away! Both Gerrard and Kaka have been spotted in training wearing the black and white football boot with gives a tantalising clue as to the styling and performance we can expect from this new generation of Predator football boot.

Adidas +Predator Absolute Champions League Football Boots

didas Predator Absolute Champions League Football Boots SMLThe +Predator Absolute features PowerPulse technology which shifts the centre of gravity closer to the point of impact. For even more power simply insert the PowerPulse insoles. Want the lightest Predator ever? Then it’s a matter of moments to swap.

PowerPulse technology was developed in co-operation with the University of Calgary and delivers the sort of sweet spot science more usually found in golf clubs. Scientists found that shooting with these boots increased ball speed by 2% compared to the most recent Predator, or by 5% compared to a standard football boot.

Adidas logoThe boot comes with two insoles, one with a specially positioned 40g weight and one without. The weight, which has been moved from other parts of the boot, sits behind the foot at the point of impact creating maximum power transfer. The interchangeable insoles allow players to customise to their needs, providing the most powerful Predator ever, or the lightest.

The radical re-design of the boot also applies to the Engineered Predator Technology (the famous rubber fins that create the power & swerve) resulting in a striking new look and snug fit.

Price: £130

Release Date: 12th July 2007.

Our Verdict: An exceptionally classy and impressive colourway and design for the new Adidas Predator Absolute which is a worthy successor to the Champions League edition and worthy of being premiered at the showcase Champions League Final. Adidas is clearly hitting back and hitting back hard following their rivals recent launches, and imperious performances by its stars Kaka and Gerrard could see the new football boot hit the stars on its launch!

  7. says: Oscar

    I have these Predators with the same color and they are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever had, and I have had Total 90’s, Nike Tiempos, and Mercurial Vapors, so I would say Adidas right now has the most comfortable football boot.
