The new generation adidas Predator Edge has landed. A new king of control is crowned and now you're weighing up which version you should arm yourself with, and that's where we come in to help. The Predator Edge has 5 levels to choose from – starting at the most basic Predator Edge .4 and as you level up all the way to Elite you benefit from an added piece of technology to enhance your game. Got that? Good. Let's start to explain the differences as we power you up to Elite.

adidas Predator Edge .4


The .4 edition is adidas' entry level Predator –  in short, it's the most basic version of the boot and as we Level Up we add a whole host of extras. For players looking for that authentic Predator look but at a lower price point then the .4 is perfect. This is a stripped back version of the boot built to deliver the basic DNA of the power and control play that the Predator series is renown for. A few grams heavier than the other editions but the .4 level still provides comfort thanks to its soft synthetic upper.

Key Features:

- Authentic Predator Visuals
- Soft Synthetic Upper
- For Firm & Artificial Ground

adidas Predator Edge .3 Laceless


Move up a level and you've got yourself a laceless version of the adidas Predator Edge. The laceless construction uses a supportive mid-cut collar for a harnessed fit once your foot is inside. Another upgrade the .3 boasts is that the red area at the front of the boot is textured to help create some friction when controlling the ball, whereas the .4 are is purely aesthetic and isn't raised for any control zone benefits.

Key Features:

- Laceless Construction
- Supportive Mid-Cut Collar
- Control Zone Textured Upper

adidas Predator Edge .2


Jump up another level and you start to see some of the more advanced technologies adidas have to offer on the Predator. The .2 features the famed Predator shooting technology as the Zone Skin Rubber Control Zones are introduced. While the zones on the .4 are decoration, and on the .3 are just raised for texture, these on the .2 are the rubber technology that allows you to get that extra whip on your crosses, power on your shots or control on your touch.

Key Features:

- Coated Textile Upper
- Zone Skin Rubber Control Zones
- Lace Closure

adidas Predator Edge .1


Now we're at the business end. When you level up to the .1 you're looking at the boot worn by most adidas contracted professional players. A more comfortable, fitted Primeknit upper steps in to provide a more bespoke fit, and the newly developed FACET FRAME on the sole of the boot delivers stability and dynamic traction for powerful movement on the pitch. The boot is finished with a FACET FIT collar construction – a premium laceless two-piece PRIMEKNIT collar designed for breathable comfort, easy step in, and secure lock down of the foot during play. This is the real deal.

Key Features:

- Primeknit Upper
- Zone Skin Rubber Control Zones
- FACET Frame soleplate

adidas Predator Edge+


While a fair few adidas contracted players wear the .1 edition on pitch, this here is the most advanced Elite version of the adidas Predator Edge when it comes to technologies. The Edge+ uses a completely laceless Primeknit construction to deliver the most harnessed locked in fit and in turn the cleanest possible striking area. The Zone Skin Rubber Control Zones bring the ping and the collar ensure maximum support without distraction.
