January 19th 2021

adidas start off the year right by dropping the Predator FREAK, an all-new innovation that delivers 360-degree ball control.

Since its debut in 1994, the adidas Predator has been at the forefront of technological change on the pitch and the 2021 drop is no different. The Predator FREAK features 360-degrees of DEMONSKIN spike coverage, laid in a formation that aligns to key contact points with the ball. The rubber spikes have been positioned with the help of elite athletes to enable superior ball control and increased ball swerve.

The new Predator Freak also includes a transformed silhouette with a radically high new split-cut collar design, which improves the boot’s adaptability to feet of different shapes. Honouring the legendary Predator Accelerator (1998) and Predator Precision (2000), the boot’s design sees adi’s famous three stripes wrapping underneath the boot. The boot’s colourway of luminous yellow and all-over blue rounds off the statement look.

Players including Paul Pogba, Toni Duggan, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, David Alaba and Abby Dahlkemper will wear the new Predator, which is available today via adidas.com and selected retailers.
