The latest boot to be released in the Adidas adiPower Predator range comes with a serious amount of attitude – as worn by David Beckham. Rather than featuring a leather upper, this version comes compliments of a glossy Microfiber, with the official colorway listed as Prime Ink Blue/White Metallic/Electricity. The combo really pops and this could actually be one of the better looking releases to date in the adiPower range.
Beckham has been wearing these with a lot of style for the past few weeks and it seems that fans really like them! I have received a few dozen emails about their availability the past few weeks, and finally here they are. Even with a microfiber upper, this release comes in at a pretty smooth 7.8oz, which is pretty unbelievable considering these are considered to be a power boot!
I personally like what Adidas has done with this latest Predator release. The overall look and performance of the boot is very competitive and they offer a great mix of power with a lightweight feel. Adidas has re-engineered the entire Predator Zone in a pretty cool way and now refer to it as the Predator Element. Basically, a silicon rubber is strategically positioned and tuned to create a uniform surface with rebound effect, for those times when you need some extra power behind your shots. Holding a pair, it is hard to comprehend the fact that they fall into the power category, but I can tell you after testing the adiPower that they have everything that you could require and more.
If you decide to go for a pair of these, the adiPower comes in around the $200 range.
