The Adidas Predator series has been the power boot king ever since its release in 1994. The tenth incarnation of this legendary cleat has quite a large bar to reach. With the Predator X, Adidas has surpassed all previous versions, and have created a cleat for the ages.
For the first time Adidas has dropped the covered lacing and instead now offer side lacing to create a larger striking surface. The previous Predator, the Powerswerve, was popular for its Powerswerve element. This was a series of liquid rubber strips on the upper which provided immense swerve and control. Now building off this success, Adidas has covered the entire striking area of the Predator X with a rubber silicon compound (above). This surface provides new levels of grip and swerve. Because it covers more of the striking area than the old Powerswerve elements did, it is far more effective.
Another standout feature of the Predator Powerswerve was the Powerpulse, a chamber on the bottom of the shoe filled with tungsten powder. This chamber allowed your foot to carry more momentum forward, boosting the power of your kicks. On the new Predator X, the Powerpulse has been replaced with the Powerspine. Through extensive testing, Adidas has found that the new Powerspine allows for zero loss of power from your foot to the ball. In addition to all of this, Adidas has developed a completely new material for the rest of the cleat. The Taurus leather combines the comfort and touch of kangaroo leather with the durability of a synthetic material.
Adidas initially released the Predator X in the classic predator colors of Black/White/Red (top of post) , but also the distinct White/Dark Brown/Pure Yellow (above). The legendary Predator wearer, David Beckham, has his own colorway of the Predator X (bottom left). Also, in conjunction with the Champions League, Adidas released the Champions League version, Real Blue/Running White/Light Scarlet (bottom right).
With all these amazing new technologies, its no wonder the Predator X is worn by such legends as David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Michael Ballack, Robin Van Persie, and Raul, and that it was designed with input from Zinedine Zidane.
