UPDATE: 'Cold Blooded' Adidas Predator 18 Leather Boots Leaked

Update: Brazilian professional Michel Bastos shared a picture of his new Adidas Predator 18.1 Leather 'Cold Blooded' boots. What's interesting about this picture is that Bastos' boots have a FG outsole, whereas previous pro-exclusive Predator 18 leather boots were always SG. Having been offered to stores in this colorway, the boots should be available to the public once the Cold Blooded pack hits in the coming days.

Following the recent controversy - quite a few Adidas players are sporting a leather edition of the Predator 18 that is not available to buy anywhere - it looks like the Adidas Predator Leather football boots will be available to buy after all, at least in a few months.

This news comes via one of our followes on Instagram who made us aware that it's possible for retailers to pre-order said Adidas Predator 18.1 Leather cleats from Adidas. Pending full confirmation, it's pretty likely that these boots will end up being available in different spots next year.

Slated with an expected release date of February 2018, the Adidas Predator 18 Leather debut retail edition will be based on the white, black and red colorway from the so-called 'Cold Blooded' pack.

Inspired by the Ace 17 Leather, which was also barely available to buy for customers recently, the Adidas Predator 18 Leather boots combine synthetic (back) and leather (front) for the upper, while the entire collar construction is also a bit lower than on the regular Predator 18.1. They are worn by quite a few of Adidas' high-profile players including Nacho Fernández of Real Madrid and Mats Hummels of Bayern Munich.
