PLAY TEST REVIEW : adidas Predator 18+

One of the most iconic boots in the history of soccer is back and better than ever, but it might not be quite what you were expecting.

Although it goes by the same name, there are many features on the new adidas Predator that make it virtually unrecognizable to the last commercially released version back in 2014.

In fact, this cleat is replacing the recently discontinued ACE model and is an evolution of that technology, coupled with DNA that evokes the nostalgia of the tradition black, white and red Predator of the past. You’ll also see the likes of former ACE players, Mesut Ozil and Paul Pogba, wearing the new Predator in yet another link between the two cleat families.

So, what is it that makes the new predator the same as the ACE and what makes it different? Watch our full play test review above for more on the Predator 18+ performance, fit, touch and more.
