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

Further I can say, that the first official pics by adidas will be released on 26th of october 2009, and another week later, on the weekend of 31st of october and 1st of november, the boot will be officially worn by players in the english premier league. So keep your eyes open on Ballack, Gerrard, Berbatov and Co.

Also is expected that this weekend they can already be spotted in the german bundesliga. As soon as players are spotted, i will post pics as fast as possible so keep on checking out the blog 😉

Adidas Predator X – No TruStrike any longer – release date

October 19, 2009


Updates on the so called Predator TruStrike. As i already thougth, adidas told in an interview, that the fans who call the Predator “TruStrike” will be dissapointed a little bit at the release. It’s because the Predator will just be called Predator X and NOT TruStirke. The X stands for the 10th generation of the iconic football boot.

Further I got informations from a guy who works for adidas, who told me the official release is the 16th of november 2009. So I think we can expect a great release party as every year.

Benzema going to be a Predator-Player?

October 18, 2009


Seems like Karim Benzema, french football player, who just signed for Real Madrid for 38 million Euro, is switching from Adipure to the new Predator X. Benzema started with F50 until he switched from the F50.7 to the new released Adipure. But now as you can see it seems that he will be one of the heads for the campain for the new Preds.
