Some of the world’s best players, including Mesut Özil of Germany, Ángel di María of Argentina and Oscar of Brazil, will wear Predator Instinct when they return to their clubs after the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Engineered to optimize control, the Predator Instinct is made with new hybridtouch material, which combines the comfort and performance benefits of leather and synthetic. Flexibility is enhanced by a new TPU outsole, and the 5 engineered SL rubber zones that Predator is known for are now merged with the outsole for more controlled passing. An all-new control frame maximizes grip on the ball, while improving touch and control.
In 2014, adidas will release 14 new versions of the Predator Instinct, including Revenge Instinct, a heritage set of three Predators based on the original 1994 design, the 1998 Accelerator and the 2002 Mania.
Predator Instinct will be available tomorrow at adidas.com, adidas retail stores and soccer specialty stores for $220. You can also pre-order now at adidas.com.
