For a quarter of a century, Adidas’ Predator soccer sneakers have been some of the most iconic and important to ever hit the pitch. And now they’re helping shape the future of the sport, as the brand has imbued them with a new advanced technology they’ve dubbed DEMONSKIN.
The Predators have always been inspired by some of the most dangerous creatures in nature, but these new ones — called the 20 Mutator — take it to the next level. the DEMONSKIN technology, the spikes around the toe and sides, created using years of data and a complex algorithm, was designed to specifically align with key contact points between the boot and ball. This grants players enhanced ball control and promoted spin during strikes. These new cleats also boast “new outsole enhancing control zones,” high-performance polyamide-injected layers for better stabilization, and a weight-saving sleek silhouette.
