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.
