The Germany-based sportswear brand recently unveiled the Predator 20 Mutator with “Demonskin,” an all-new technology designed for 2020 to extend grip on the ball and maximize control. The Demonskin spikes are wrapped around the side and front of the boot, allowing players greater control and touch. The boot has been designed to maximise ball control, with adidas using its latest technology.
Other features of the planning include a high-collar and low-cut front, while the boot’s outsole enhances the control zones of the foot. Additionally, player movement is assisted through high-performance polyamide-injected layers, while a two-plate stud construction reduces weight.
The boot is going to be worn by players including Pogba, Becky Sauerbrunn, Dele Alli, Marc-André ter Stegen and Tessa Wullaert, who also will wear a special pair of goalkeeping gloves complete with the Demonskin spike technology.
Ben Herath, adidas Football Design Director said; “When we launched the first Predator in 1994, it changed the game. We’ve since been relentless in pushing the boundaries of innovation in its design, ensuring it remains at the forefront of football boot technology. Predator is more than just a boot. It is synonymous with iconic footballing moments, worn by greats of the game that in their own way have become mythological figures of the sport.
Predator 20 Mutator will be available to buy in select retailers, is available to purchase online and in-store from 21st January 2020 onwards at a price range of INR 3999/- to 22999/-.
