Adidas adiPower Predator – DB Edition

adidas adipower Predator Gold

Seeing as he has been the poster boy of Adidas for over a decade now, you know Adidas are going to create a personalized version of the new Predator for David Beckham! We spotted the new Gold adiPower Predator DB a few weeks back when Beckham took the field for Gary Neville’s testimonial. it was only fitting that he debuted the release on the field where he made his name – Old Trafford.

After having the opportunity to review them, the adiPower Predator currently sits proudly atop of the review scores page – a testament to the overall value and performance of the new lightweight/power hybrid. Holding a pair of the 7.8oz boots makes it difficult to comprehend how they could still fall into the power category, but I can tell you after testing that they have everything that you could require and more.

Adidas has completely reworked the Predator Element, with the result receiving much applause from all levels of player. The only concern I had while testing lay in the break-in period, which took a little longer than I anticipated, primarily due to the inclusion of a PowerSpine soleplate.

I actually made it out to the LA Galaxy vs Toronto game last week and got to see Beckham in the boots first hand. I am not personally sold on the colorway, but I must admit that I thought it complimented the Galaxy home kit. The Collegiate Red Metallic/Gold Metallic/Black is a boot that really stands out, and they have the full effect on Beckham. On a final note, Adidas have also just released a Running White/Black/Sharp Blue colorway.

  1. Hey Bryan!
    Do you know when the classic red and black colorway comes out for the adipowers?
    I hope they come out soon!

    • It is already out, when the adiPowers were released they released it along with the blue/yellow colorway

      • I don't think they are out. If they are, they are impossible to find!
        I am hoping to be able to order from soccer.com but they are currently not listed on the site.

        • I heard it would be out in mid July. That's probably the best answer i can give you, so if you don't want to wait till then, just get the white ones if you don't like the blues.

    • I have heard that they won't be released to the US market for awhile, but they will be available in the UK some time in the future. Pro-direct may be the best choice for these in the coming months.

  2. i still dont understand why becks doesnt use the powerspine

  3. Heey Bryan, Have you had a chance to feel these Predator synthetic version, i was looking to purchase because i personally love the colourway.
    Do you think they will be more durable thena the leather version, and just 1 quick question? Through my experiences wearing the Adidas Predator X and also Predator Absolo?, (both leather) that the front of the boot happen to peel off the sole. I currently wear Puma V1.10 II and these are no problem due to the stiching quality . Will these happen with the Adipowers i really would like a durable boot. p.s I play on all surfaces e.g (turf, grass etc) cheers

  4. hows the durability, comfort, touch with these synthetic adipowers compared to the regular leather adipower line? Any major differences?
