In conclusion, aside from the lacing system being a laceless system and has certain compromises when it comes down to lockdow and general tightness, and the collar being higher than it should, everything about this boot I think Adidas just got right.
If you like the grip, it's back and it's there. And it's definitely something that will give you the confidence when on the ball. And other than that, it's a solid release from Adidas - a true return of the Adidas Predator.
This is easily the most unique boot I've tried in a while. Is it perfect? No. But that's what makes it so appealing because it literlaly feels a little unfair to the other team when you put these on. To me, this is the real return of the Predator.
The Adidas Predator Mutator 20+ Firm Ground soccer shoe comes with a bang. Pushing the envelope in soccer shoe design, this model bears a new innovation from the Three Stripes– Demonskin. Embedded onto the Primeknit upper, this never-before-seen soccer cleat technology features a total of 406 spikes inspired by the scales of a komodo dragon. Not only is the feature aesthetically-pleasing and lethal-looking, these spikes are also a bite in terms of grip and ball spin.
A high-cut laceless design ensures support, particularly for the ankle area. While the pair has a tongueless construction, a superior foot lockdown is still observed.
Traction and grip in firm ground courts are delivered through a total of eleven studs. The forefoot features seven studs while the heel area has four.
The Adidas Predator Mutator 20+ FG shoe has a laceless design combined with a Primeknit upper. This construction creates a sock-like fit as the material has been created to bring a one-piece setup. A tongueless design is also evident from the pair.
The upper of the Adidas Predator Mutator 20+ firm ground shoe is constructed with a Primeknit material. Ever since its unveiling in 2012, this knit-based upper has provided wearers a sock-like and stable feel on foot. Longer than the usual high top collar found in the market, the upper material extends above the ankle area, giving way to a collar construction that doubles down on support.
Noticeably, the Three Stripes has introduced a new innovation for this generation of Predators. Four hundred six spikes are incorporated into the cleat’s forefoot area. Dubbed as Demonskin, this technology brings grip and ball control, and it optimizes spin as you’ve never seen before. This scale-like element is inspired by Komodo dragons.
The outsole of the 20+ firm ground of the Predators carries a total of eleven studs. Seven have been incorporated into the forefoot while four are placed in the heel area. This configuration optimizes traction and grip in firm ground courts.
