To pay homage to the Predator’s 25th anniversary, Adidas tapped celebrated collectors @thepredatorpro and @thepredcollective. The collaboration led to the design and creation of the Adidas Predator Archive FG. Inspired by classic Predator models, the resulting product is nothing short of unique and blurs the line between genius and madness. Some of the Predator muses include the Absolute, PowerSwerve, Mania, Rapier, Pulse, LZ, X, and Instinct.
With an initial look at the pair, it's apparent that the left and the right shoe sports a different look. The upper is made with a leather element infused with Fusionskin technology. This model also boasts a stretchy Primeknit collar that adds support. Additionally, an asymmetrical lacing system allows for fit customization. For ball touch and control, an SL rubber has been integrated into the strike zone. Rubber spikes reminiscent of the Adidas Predator Mutator 20+ is evident for this pair.
The outsole of this firm ground soccer cleat features an eleven-stud configuration. With a split sole design, the forefoot holds a total of seven studs while the heel area has four. Hybrid studs are used for this model to promote traction and grip in firm ground courts.
