This is the Adidas Predator 18.1 football boot in the launch colorway.

Just like the 18+, the Adidas Predator 18.1 debut soccer cleats are black with white 3 Stripes on the outstep and a bit of red on the inside of the collar. Finally, large parts of the sole plate are gold, although contrary to the laceless version, they are matte and not metallic.
