Adidas have grabbed all the headlines recently with the release of the new AdiPower Predator and some eye-catching AdiZero colourways. Now Adidas have unveiled two more colourways for the new Predator AdiPower.
The first colourway is the third launch colourway but will have no on-field support and limited distribution. We think this White/Black/Silver colourway looks really good and we are a little disappointed we wont be seeing these on the field.
The new AdiPower Predator features a Taurus calf leather and weigh just 225g. this is thanks, in part to Adidas’ groundbreaking SprintFrame outsole (which we know from the AdiZero). The SprintFrame features a redesigned Predator PowerSpine from the Predator X, to allow additional energy transfer directly from the foot into the ball by preventing the foot from over bending while still allowing for comfortable running movements thanks to the flex grooves which keep the element highly flexible in the right direction.
The new re-engineered silicon rubber Predator Element is split into two zones. The first zone is an aggressive, structured surface which integrates the Adidas stripes is the ‘Power Zone’. The 3D fins give rebound upon ball impact, generating additional striking power from the boot. The second ‘Swerve Zone’ features a hexagonal pattern. The even and soft surface provides a longer contact time with the ball, resulting in higher friction and ultimately higher swerve.
The second colourway looks like a perfect fit for the Inter Milan kit and is expected to be available mid July. Adidas seem to be big fans of the ‘elevtricity’ colour as we have seen this in a lot of their recent boots. We also like it here at TRW and think it defiantly adds to this Black/Electricity/Splash colourway. this colourway will have limited on-field support and distribution.
