Beckham in new Predator X (own white/red colourway)

November 2, 2009


So also David Beckham got his brand new Predator X. First it was expected, that he will begin with the standard white/yellow model, but as you can see he is already playing in his special colourway.

Maybe there will be better pics in a few days, because i really want to know if he is playing in the standard tongueless model, or if he has a special one with fold-over tongue. As most of you will already know, Beckham was always a fan of the tongue and had his own style to wear it pulled out almost up to his toes. Another thing what makes me think about that is, that it seems to be a special model already, because he has got the old stud-system, not the six-stud-system


Adidas Predator X already on miAdidas

November 2, 2009


much earlier than the other predator models, the brand new Predator X is already available on miadidas in america.

for 270$, which is around 180€ you can customize your new powerboot. but i have to say that the possibilities to create a good looking colourway are very very few. It’s because you can only choose between 3 colours for the “thermoframe window”, which are white, grey and dark blue. so if you choose a green, gold or orange upper, tell me which of these 3 colours would fit them 😉 right, none…

but try it yourself!

well, on the first spot there may not be much differences, maybe like all the other former rugby versions will have slightly modified predator elements.

but it looks like the rugby version doesn’t have the powerspine.

Adidas Predator X official pictures, release colourways and release date

October 27, 2009


So finally adidas released official pics of the new Predator X and the colourways for the release in mid-november.

They are already available for pre-order in some stores, so keep your eyes open 😉

Now let me say a few words to the “TruStrike” tale. Now it’s official, there is no TruStrike in the name of the Predator. It’s just Predator X. The name TruStrike was never supposed to be taken. It was just added to by someone, and so it became popular. Even tough i have to say TruStrike would be much cooler than just Predator_X but who cares about the name if the boot is good 😉

Now a few specs of the boot:

NEW INSOLE now called POWERSPINE and it minimises power loss while your shot.

Material is reduced between the ball and the boot by removing the tongue – to get better touch

Upper material is Taurus calf leather – no K-leather anymore
