For adidas Soccer, technology comes first and foremost in their boot designs. However, nothing makes a player stand out on the field like an over-the-top colorway can (well except maybe putting that aforementioned technology to good use with one’s skills). For the spring, adidas has taken the popular Predator X model and come up with two head-turning colorways featuring their “Intense Green” color.
The Predator X begins with a TraXion FG outsole that offers grip on firm natural surfaces. Then an internal chassis uses revolutionary Powerspine technology that increases power by up to seven percent and reduces injury risk to the midfoot area as well. The synthetic inner lining, anatomically molded EVA insole and opti-fit construction keep comfort at its highest possible level. Finally, the upper is made up of full-grain calf leather and comes equipped with a perfectly placed Predator element that offers the best control and accuracy possible.
With such beautiful and bright colorways, there is no doubt these will be showing up in our Soccer Watch coverage in no time. While the Black version will likely show up in the recently underway 2011 MLS season, the white version is specific to the UEFA Champions League.
