1994 was a pivotal year for football. The adidas Predator was born and took the beautiful game to new heights.
They became the weapon of choice for ballers across the globe, creating unforgettable moments and cementing players as legends.
Past, Present, Future
Zinedine Zidane laced up in a pair of Predators, gliding across the pitch, slicing through defences, and volleying home one of the greatest goals a Champions League final has ever seen.
Dead-ball specialists opted for the Predator to rack up goals and assists. Defensive walls and keepers were petrified of David Beckham standing over a freekick.
Tormenting defences was made easier when lacing up in Predators. Alessandro Del Piero made mincemeat of stubborn Serie A backlines and found the back of the net with ease.
Carrying the Torch
Echoing Zizou, Jude Bellingham has taken the Frenchman’s shirt number and dominates the midfield in the latest instalment of Predator.
The Englishman has become a fan favourite of Madristas. At just 20 years old and in his debut season, he has 13 goals in 17 games in La Liga.
They’re a staple for strikers, too, Alessia Russo and Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal are prolific poachers. So, how’ve the newest Predators been designed to be so effective?
Landing in the classic Core Black colourway, the Predator Elite comes in a laced and a laceless version.
Crafted with a lightweight upper for comfortable wear, they feature HybridTouch 2.0 to the forefoot for enhanced control, while the Strikeskin Grip make for a clean strike.
A one-piece tongue construction with a soft lining caresses the foot, the PRIMEKNIT collar keeps your feet feeling snug, and an external heel counter provides extra stability.
To keep you gripped to firm ground so you can dictate play, they’re equipped with a Controlframe 2.0 outsole.
Versatility and adapting is the fabric of football, that’s why adidas are bringing several versions of the Predator 24.
