In May of this year, adidas started a new chapter in the 20 year long history of their Predator. The headline was the Predator Instinct and the introduction promised no less than fourteen models of the updated and instinctive predator. Now adidas have finalised their promise with this 14th Predator Instinct in 2014. And just as we have seen with the previous models, they mean business. And they are not joking...
The adidas Predator collection has quite a legacy, and enjoys great popularity across the globe. For more than twenty years, this football boots has delivered ultimate ball control for some of of the most legendary footballers of recent times, including David Beckham, Del Piero, Zidane and Raúl, among others. Today, elegant players such as Xavi, Di Maria and Özil are wearing the latest Predator Instinct, which now has finished off the chapter of the 14 special Predator Instinct models of 2014 with a glow in the dark upper.
As previously mentioned, adidas are not joking. With the Hunt Series they have taken their boot design to new heights. A new technique has allowed the four adidas silos to glow in the dark and hereby bring new meaning to the concept of “hunting in the dark” for the many predator who are running about on football pitches all across the world.
Admitted, it is not that often that we play in the dark, but this is definitely the coolest “unneeded” feature that we have seen on a football boot this year. The idea has been realised by a very special finish on the adidas Hybridtouch material, which provides this unique look as the lights go out above the last Predator Instinct of this year.
Go hunt in the dark with the Predator Instinct Hunt – just 209 Euro.
If we take a look at the new Predator Instinct in the light of day, it is as we know it. Except from a minor change in the upper, adidas have kept the five iconic Lethal Zones on the upper, which each provide their individual performance enhancing elements. These rubber zones on the Predator represent a big part of the reasoning why this collection is immortal.
There are plenty of reasons for why the Predator Instinct has been one of the most popular collections in 2014 and the new ControlFrame has certainly contributed to making the control boot the preferred weapon with numerous play-makers around the globe. This Hunt Series is definitely not going to damage the popularity of the predator Instinct. How many can say that the football boot can glow in the dark? And if you don't believe us, then you can try it out for yourself. It actually looks rather cool...
You can pre-order the new Predator Instinct Hunt right here – just 209 Euro.
The new Hunt Series brings boot design to new heights, with an upper that will glow in the dark, if it has been subject to heavy lighting beforehand. We are not entirely sure as to what it will do on the pitch, but it is surely a cool feature in our opinion. What are your thoughts on the concept?
