Adidas Predator 18+ Football Boots Released
Following weeks of anticipation, the Predator 18 was finally released by Adidas today, headlined by the laceless Predator 18+ model. The Adidas Predator 18 debut colorway forms part of the brand's Skystalker pack, the rest of which is set to follow next week.
Adidas Predator 18+ - Black / White / Solar Red / Tactile Gold Metallic
This is the black, white and red Adidas Predator 18+ debut colorway.
Inspired by the traditional Predator colorway of old, the Adidas Predator 18+ debut look is predominantly black with white 3 Stripes on the outstep and red and gold detailing on the inside collar and the sole plate, respectively. The inside is solid black with the trademark control elements being the only visible design feature.
Finally, more gold is present along the sides of the heel of the black and red Adidas Predator 2018 soccer cleats. The pull tabs found on both 2016 and 2017 laceless Aces are gone.
Tech-wise, the Adidas Predator 18+ has a laceless one-piece Primeknit upper with the aforementioned control elements, ridges that run across the forefoot and inside, being the most Predator-like elements about the design. Just like on the Ace 17+ Purecontrol, a bit of boost cushioning is present both inside the midsole and the sockliner.
