Who should buy the Adidas Predator 18.2 Firm Ground
The Adidas Predator 18.2 FG is styled with a mid-top collar that has a stretchable Neoprene quality. It wraps the foot snugly, alongside the central lacing system, through a supportive fit. You'd get this pair if:
- You're a massive classic Predator follower and are impressed by the new and traditional style of this cleat.
- You're excited about the uniquely shaped studs and their performance on the field.
Predator 18.2 FG's dynamic outsole setup
The TPU-injected outsole of the Adidas Predator 18.2 FG leads to a more stabilized sensation in the foot particularly from the midfoot to the heel area while the forefoot area offers a more flexible construction.
The stud pattern is identical to the high-end models of the Predator line. Seven hybrid studs line up the toe area while four are positioned in the heels to amplify support.
The shapes of the studs resemble irregularly shaped diamonds. The studs are versatile enough to be engineered for both rotational and traction movements.
Stable upper construction of Adidas Predator 18.2 FG
A synthetic mesh material makes up the upper of the Adidas Predator 18.2 FG. It is a less premium material than PrimeKnit but Controlskin offers a structured construction that is designed to produce a foot-hugging sensation. It has a thicker yet more stable composition that helps in ball control.
The mid top collar is made from an elastic Neoprene material. The texture of the collar is similar to the Adidas X 16.3. It extends from the ankles to the forefoot to mimic the sensation of a sock. It aids in the overall lockdown of the cleat.
Iconic Predator style
The overall style of the cleat is not necessarily the traditional Predator character. However certain design features such as the heritage black, red and gold combination, the classic white stripes and the ridged upper are derived from of the iconic lineup.
The signature Predator and the Adidas logos are emblazoned in the heel area while the Adidas stripes are printed on the lateral side.
The Adidas 18.2 FG features a lace-up enclosure that is positioned above the sock-like extension.
