NEW ADIDAS PREDATOR SL COLOURWAY

adidas’ new adidas Predator SL has had something of an inconspicuous launch. Appearing to little fanfare ahead of an October release, this latest colourway marks the official opening of pre-orders for both the black and white version of the lightest Predator football boots ever!

Weighing in at just 190g, the' adidas Predator SL is built around the blueprint of the adidas adiPower Predator but brings some new tricks to the table in the name of weight reduction.

Starting in the upper, the' adidas Predator SL uses the same SprintSkin that has become the hallmark of the adidas F50 adiZero range. This specially designed single-layer synthetic is designed to be flexible, comfortable and offer a great feel for the ball at speed – as well as being one of the lightest synthetics on the market!

The' adidas Predator SL also uses a special low-profile variant of the adiPower’s control-focused element, designed to increase friction on the ball when receiving, passing and striking the ball with these gorgeous football boots.

The light, new Running White/Sharp Blue/Electricity colourway is the perfect contrast to the dark and futuristic black launch scheme – with the classic adidas running white showing the patterning on the upper and the smooth contour of the toebox.

adidas’ Sharp Blue/Electricity trim, that seems to be the hallmark of all adiPower related football boots (bar the classic Black/White/Predator Red), is also in full effect, highlight the three-stripes branding on the outstep and the classic adidas logo on the tongue to great effect!

  • They’ll sell, but I think they’re completely unnecessary! I have the adizeros and the upper ist sh*#, because synthetic just doesn’t cut it. I also have the adipower and they can’t get better – they are the best boots I have ever had!

  • How heavy is it again? In the first Kinetic SL post for the black colourway you said it weighs 211g, but here it says 190g?

    • Hey Darren 190 is the magic number, the 211 was an error from adidas’ release back in June – the latest retailer specs say 190g per boot in a US size 9 – which is pretty good!

  • loathe them. absolutely loathe them.

    we seem to be moving away from a diverse range of boots to a market saturated with lightweight boots.these new predators imho are NOT predators. without the iconic toe plates and full leather upper, they are just flashy looking adipures or especially in this weight class, bog standard adizeros.what differentiates this boots from the adipure SL? or any incarnation of the adizero? bring back the grill or just give up on making “predators” as you are ruining their heritage with this rubbish.

  • I think they are hideous and [email protected]:disqus  said adidas is moving completely away from what a predator is supposed to be. Thats why i havent bought a new pair of preds since the powerswerves, and i regretted those. Predators arent supposed to be light weight and flashy. They are solid boots meant for power and precision. its kinda sad nowadays.

  • fools are easy to part with there money, cant see another reason that adidas would bother to bring out a boot to compete with is own lines. you want a light boot get the zero, want k leather copa’s, but now if you want a predator type boot you have to go to another company mizuno or zygo  there are even more predator vamps on rugby boot a hand sport go figure. sorry adidas you have moved just that bit to far from the point, even if there nice looking (both colour ways)

  • They are lush boots I’m getting a pair of them in october they suit my game perfectly cause I’m mainly a winger/Striker and can also play Playmaker. so cannot wait to get them.

  • What is the point in getting these boots?
    The predator element looks cheap and useless. Unless you like the look or have the money to spend then they wont be bought by many. 
    Basically an adizero with a powerspine

  • @6d3acdb6f161c1dd426411ce5f74ad20:disqus you fail, because it’s not the predator but a different boot. adidas keeps making the predator but they also choose to make a lighter predator so what’s your problem?
    YOU FACKING FAGGOT

  • I don’t get what Adidas is trying to do with all of these SL releases. Nobody buys them anyway and I’m yet to see a pro wear them.

  • very nice colorway, but i still think this predator SL model is useless….ppl dont buy the preds for their lightness, if they want a light boot, they’ll go for the adizeros or even the mercurials
