adidas Drop "Initiator Pack" Predator Tango 19+ Edition

Sneaking its way on to the scene with all the subtlety of a blazing inferno, adidas drop the latest look for the Predator Tango 19+, fit with fiery hues.

Part of the “Initiator Pack”, the upper differs slightly to its on-pitch compatriot, featuring a lighter red in the forefoot that fades back in a pixelated design to the darker red of the heel and Sockfit collar. The newly added ribbed heel counter stands out as the only black to feature on the outside of the upper, but also highlights the only real update to this latest version.


Flip the sneaker and you’ll be greeted by a “Y” shaped torsion frame embedded into the otherwise white outsole, bringing stability to your stride. The Primeknit upper reverts to the ribbed effect that is synonymous with the Predator these days, where other recent releases have veered away from them, opting instead for a cleaner forefoot aesthetic.
