Oh, this? This is just further confirmation that the adidas Sobakov is leading the soccer-inspired sneaker movement right now. A departure from football, an entrance into streetwear, all whilst expertly embracing subtle Predator DNA.

Whereas other adidas football-influenced sneakers such as the Predator 19+, X and Nemeziz all feature obvious football boot styled design, the Sobakov adopts a more mature trend that struts far more comfortably into lifestyle circles. The Predator Precision styled stripes are always a reminder of the story it tells, but when it's paired with this colour combo the Predator upbringing becomes more apparent.


An off white coloured upper hosts black stripes taken from the iconic 2000 football boot, while a splash of red drops onto the leather heel tab to give the whole aesthetic an injection of throwback goodness. One of the most hyped sneakers of 2018 powers into a second year, and at a price that breaks the mold of hype having to cause serious damage to your wallet.
