adidas Launch The Predator 18+ "Cold Blooded"

Step this way please, and try to form an orderly queue. For this here is the new "Cold Blooded" adidas Predator 18+ colourway that will feature on pitch from this weekend onwards. Yep, dressed in a crowd-pleasing combination of "White/Red/Black" it's prim and proper Pred.

The ultimate Predator three-way lands as the first colour update on the re-released Predator 18+ and yeah, it may be shuffled from the more traditional "Black/Red/White" combo, but this is a new era of Predator pace – one that doesn't even have laces, so consider the goalposts well and truly moved. Take what you can from the old school and fully embrace the new school – after all, this is most advanced performance Predator boot ever. In short, it's the best.


The "Cold Blooded" colourway will also launch in a laced 18.1 version and will replace the launch edition of the boot on pitch from this weekend onwards, meaning all adidas' contracted professionals will switch into the colourway. Paul Pogba, Dele Alli, and Mesut Ozil headlining the new design in the Premier League, and through to the Champions League & Europa League knockout stages next month.

White upper, black stripes, and a red top reminiscent of the old Predator tongue. Flashes of black will creep through the red area when the foot is inside the boot, by the way. Aesthetically strong. The Predator 18+ makes up one quarter of the "Cold Blooded" Stadium collection, alongside corresponding colourways on the X 17+ Purespeed, Nemeziz 17+, and COPA 18.1. Street and cage versions of the Predator are also released. 


As for the Predator 18+ itself, they key features remain the same: The boot features a Purecut Laceless system for that clean upper and snug fit, and a Forged Knit upper integrated in the midfoot to provide that trademark Predator striking sensation. The layer of Controlskin on the upper produces a super-soft feel, and optimal grip. And you've already got them in your basket haven't you?
