Adidas Predator Collection

adidas Predator Collection

The adidas Predator 24, the latest member of the Predator franchise, joins a game-changing lineup of iconic silhouettes, paying homage to the boot that started it all three decades ago and unites 90s nostalgia with the relentless performance of today to create a boot for a whole new generation of goal scoring soccer aficionados!

 

The creative innovation of the founding boot is evident as it blends the aesthetic DNA of the Predator Original with the lightweight design capabilities seen in its Predstrike and Predator 30 predecessors. The sneaker carries the famed black, white and red colourway with a bolder hue and vibrant yellow taping, proudly declaring its unique position as its own boot in its own right.

 

Bonded by this exquisitely simplistic design, the silhouette comes in three executions. It offers a combination of design features to suit diverse price points, such as laced, laceless, and a classic laced variant with a fold-over tongue for those looking for pure nostalgia.

 

"The Predator 1994 was the silhouette that started it all. Now, 30 years later, there is no better way to celebrate this game-changing franchise than to revisit its early beginnings. The adidas Predator was designed at a very different time, with very different methods than what is used today, and this became the brand's creative challenge by posing the question, 'If the Predator 1994 was designed for the modern athlete', what would it look like? The Answer — Predator 24 is a modern-day expression of Predator with the same eye-catching design DNA that made the Original so iconic and instantly recognisable on the feet of the game's greats! adidas is incredibly excited to continue our story of this beloved boot and can't wait to see players create goal-scoring legacies while wearing them!" - Sam Handy, VP of Product and Design at adidas

 

While the individual boots have evolved and shape-shifted with each generation donning them, the core DNA of bold, confident aesthetics and technical superiority of the adidas Predator legacy remains unwavering even today!

 

Key design features include:

 

  • CONTROL FRAME 2.0 - lightweight soleplate and heel construction optimise traction for dynamic movement and stability when striking the ball.

 

  • HYBRIDTOUCH 2.0 -upper provides a moulded fit with cushioning in key contact areas for comfort and a soft touch on the ball.

 

  • STRIKESKIN - rubber fins are strategically placed in strike zones to support ball grip for precision shot-making.

 

  • STRETCHABLE LACELESS PRIMEKNITCOLLAR – allows for easy entry and secure lockdown.

 

  • LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN - with the game getting faster and responsiveness to in-match moments ever more important, Predator 24 joins the limited-release Predstrike as the lightest boot in the franchise to date. Specifically, the Laceless Elite version weighs just 195g in size 8.5.

 

The adidas Predator 24 will be worn by some of the best players in the sport, including Jude Bellingham, Pedri, Alessia Russo, Kaddidiatu Diani, Gabriel Jesus and many more.
