Lets be honest, not every player has the luxury of buying the high end boots on the market. For that reason, companies release a more economical version in each silo. In the case of the adiPower Predator, your option is the Adidas Predator Absolion. The Absolion definitely rate amongst the top back-up boots on the market, and in my opinion even sit ahead of several high profile boots at a higher price points! For those of you that have worn them, I think you can confirm the fact that they are a top performing boot and make for an ideal game boot.
In terms of quality, Adidas have put a lot of time and effort into ensuring you get a package that is value for money. Just because they are not the top release, it does not mean that Adidas has simply threw a few pieces of material together and slapped on a price tag! The upper is a full-grain leather that is soft and easy to break-in. You also get the benefit of having a fully functional power zone that is quite comparable to the Predator Element, although it is slightly toned down on this version. One of the biggest differences between both versions is the soleplate, with a more standard TPU Traction FG soleplate on the Absolion. It looks a lot less complex than the adiPower but it is still very flexible from first wear and offers good support.
In terms of colorways, Adidas offer plenty of options including the David Beckham Gold Metallic, or the original Sharp Blue release. Pictured is the very clean looking Running White colorway, which comes in at $110. These actually come in as my preferred colorway, although you need to factor in cleaning if you want to get the most out of them!
