The adidas Predator has returned.

adidas’ most iconic football boot returned to the field towards the tail end of 2017, taking the reigns from the German retailer’s former control silo.

Complete with a brand new look, the new Predator is almost unrecognisable as it boasts a high-top aesthetic and does away with the classic tongue seen on its predecessors.

Worn by the likes of Mesut Ozil, Dele Alli, and Paul Pogba, the boot has released in three colourways since the turn of 2018 from three packs: Lone Hunter, Cold Blooded, and the Nite Crawler.

Engineered for unbeatable ball control, the Pred dons a synthetic upper with welded detailing on the toe box and sidewall for an improved first touch, pass accuracy, and control.

Further detailing includes the retailer’s signature Primeknit material surrounding the collar cuff, offering more protection and comfort than any boot on the market.

The adidas Predator 18 is available now via and other select sportswear retailers.
