Increased Ball Swerve
This is where the Predator Freak truly comes alive. Continuing the evolution of PREDATOR, the updated design features extended DEMONSKIN spike coverage and an enhanced fit, engineered to help support athletes to become the best version of themselves on the pitch. The 360° Demonskin 2.0 upper features 225 rubber spikes – calibrated by a computer algorithm and laid in a formation that aligns to key contact points with the ball – to deliver superior control and unbelievable swerve to the ball.
The adidas Predator Freak features an enhanced grip, coated upper and seamless construction to make every move on the pitch smooth. When it comes to that all important first touch the boot is designed to take the sting out of a crisp pass or dampen the bounce from a ball plucked out of the air. If you’re second touch is a tackle you’ve only got yourself to blame here.
Brand New Aesthetic
PREDATOR FREAK has also received an expressive aesthetic update. Referencing notable heritage designs including the 1998 PREDATOR ACCELERATOR and the 2000 PREDATOR PRECISION, the dramatic look sees the iconic three stripes wrapping from lateral to medial sides and around the underside of the boot. Luminous yellow DEMONSKIN spikes pop against a bright all-over blue colourway, to round off the striking look.
The dramatic new-look silhouette is the result of a new split line high collar. The purecut laceless PRIMEKNIT collar and two-piece sock construction enables an effortless instep for eased entry into the boot and a total locked in fit around the midfoot and ankle, as well as creating an even surface area for continued added ball control.
Comfort and stability is key to activating the best version of yourself on pitch. That’s why Predator Freak features an evolved ControlFrame consisting of a lightweight outsole with traction studs to stabilise the wearer’s step to allow full power of movement.
