Welcome to the newest generation of the Predator Presenting adidas’ 12th edition of this iconic soccer cleat featuring five lethal zones to provide ultimate ball control.

Every inch of the Predator Lethal Zones Soccer Cleat is made to ensure maximum performance according to five categories of plays –  the First Touch, Dribble, Sweet Spot, Drive, and Pass. Using SPRINTFRAME technology and HybridTouch upper, the super-light rubber and memory foam construction keeps this kicker lightweight and smooth.

Already a key look, players including David Beckham of the LA Galaxy, Kenny Cooper of the New York Red Bulls, Fredy Montero of the Seattle Sounders, and Teal Bunbury of Sporting Kansas City have sported the Lethal Zones on the field earlier this week. Stylesight especially likes seeing the strategic 3-D print on the cleat upper – the graphic element works along with the “passing zone” providing a sticky surface for prolonged contact with the ball.

The Predator Lethal Zones will be available in Bright Blue / Navy / White / Infrared for $220 on June 1st at adidas stores, adidas.com and soccer specialty stores nationwide. -Calvy Click
