Adidas Predator 18+ Firm Ground's high-grade construction

A mixture of Adidas standard and new technologies form the entire upper of the Predator 18+ FG.  The main material which covers the toe through the heel area, except for the midfoot, is Primeknit. The synthetic holds the upper together as a one-piece construction, giving the cleat a more adaptive sensation. The toe area is textured with layers of geometrical figures.

The rich, textured lines continue through the midfoot that is supported by a structured material called Forgeknit. The new Adidas feature found in both lateral and medial sides, keeps the foot locked in to prevent unwanted rollovers.
