A little bit late in coming, but I thought it would be worth profiling the latest release in the Adidas Predator X range, the UCL. I am actually a pretty big fan of this design and am not sure how I haven’t posted about it already. This latest version has been released in conjunction with this seasons Champions League competition.
One of the key additions to the design is the placement of the Champions League stars around the Predator strike zone. The colorway itself is really sweet, sporting a white base with navy and baby blue detailing. The mesh of color works really well in my opinion.
While testing the Predator X, I found them to be a very powerful boot with many positive attributes. The Predator zone is very unique and can definitely be an asset to players looking to shoot often or spray long balls during a game. I also found them to be super comfortable to break in, always a good thing. On the down-side. I did notice that over time, the top layer of the Taurus upper material peeled off in certain areas. This might be something to watch out as you break them in.
Overall, a great looking boot just in time for Champions League action!
