Adidas’ Predator line has undergone some big changes in recent seasons, with the Mutator in 2020, the Freak in 2021, and now the Edge, bringing an interesting new design and some revamped features for the 2022 season.
Continuing the evolution that Predator has become famed for, Predator Edge introduces what Adidas is calling Zone Skin – a new innovation supporting swerve, spin and grip. The addition places strategically positioned rubberised ribs on four control zones across the instep and toe box to optimise ball manipulation.
The high-precision zonal innovation created to highlight the skill and beauty of the sport is complemented by a number of other new features which enable maximum comfort and movement.
The newly developed Facet Frame on the sole of the boot delivers stability and dynamic traction for powerful movement on the pitch. The frame also features a weighted forefoot piece that redistributes weight toward the front of the boot, optimising power transfer when striking the ball.
The boot is finished with a Facet Fit collar construction – a premium laceless two-piece Primeknit collar designed for breathable comfort, easy step in, and secure lockdown of the foot during play.
