The Predator party continues as adidas and Pro:Direct Soccer unveil the next colourway of the new generation football boot. This here is Predstrike and it lands as a special edition drop that showcases the latest technical innovations that will usher in a new era of goalscoring.

Providing only the best for the athlete, Predator has constantly evolved and adapted around core design codes of best-in-class touch, and bold, confident aesthetics. Predstrike is no different. The boot was built with a 50/50 gender parity in testing and has undergone a series of updates from its predecessors to cope with the demands of today’s game.

Providing only the best for the athlete, Predator has constantly evolved and adapted around core design codes of best-in-class touch, and bold, confident aesthetics. Predstrike is no different with a choice of three different elite versions. The boot was built with a 50/50 gender parity in testing and has undergone a series of updates from its predecessors to cope with the demands of today’s game.

Improved Stability 


A new Control Frame 2.0 is a lightweight, full-length outsole. Evolving from its predecessor, Control Frame, the technology moves away from a two-part configuration and works in harmony with an external heel counter to keep the foot locked in position and help reduce heel slip. Creating an overall lighter frame, the components come together to optimise traction for dynamic movement stability when striking the ball.

Optimum Touch


The HybridTouch 2.0 technology creates an updated upper with a refreshed synthetic material and suede-like feel that replicates the adaptability of leather. It provides a moulded fit with cushioning in key contact areas for comfort and a soft touch on the ball. 

Signature Swerve


It’s all about the Strikeskin Technology. The hallmark of any Predator boot, Predstrike features strategically placed rubber fins in strike zones to support ball grip for precision shot-making. So spin, swerve and curl with power. Stick them on and shoot on sight.



Created to be outrageously bold and visually striking, Predstrike’s distinctive bright-orange colourway lets opponents know they are taking on a Predator player from the off. Players have the choice of three different execution options to fit their goalscoring needs, at various price points: Elite Primeknit adaptive laced fit, Elite Laceless, or Elite with Foldover Tongue and at just 195g, the laceless model is the lightest Predator boot ever made.
