Originally released back in 2019 as part of the ‘Input Code’ pack, a selection of elite level adidas Predator 19.1 has dropped back on the market at a pretty incredible price point!
For those that need a recap of the Predator 19.1, they were the first in the series that focused more on control than power. The forefoot featured a tiered Predator like elements for extra friction and dampening on the ball. Accent colors have been added through the texture to offer a more aggressive and “Predator” styled look.
Performance wise, I’m all about the Pred 19.1 and what they have on offer. ControlSkin, a super soft synthetic material, is employed by adidas to create a clean and effect touch on the ball. To the touch, it is absolutely glorious and not what you would expect. From images, the tiered Predator styling on the front of the boot looks rigid and stiff. But, it is actually a built-in foam structure that is incredibly pliable, and so super soft under your fingers. It has also has a stretch like feel to it, something that makes it very different from your standard types of synthetic you’d find on other boots.
The new dead stock is available in size 6.5US through 11.5US, on sale for $129.99.
