Milestones – Adidas Predator Powerswerve 2008

Regarded by many as the last proper Adidas Predator made. So what did Adidas change to make the PredatorPowerswerve so good?

Let`s start with the fact that Steven Gerrard said that the Predator Powerswerve was his favorite ever in the Predator range, that says quite lot about the boot. Adidas did also change the original rubber fins to “Predator SMART Foam” to give extra power and swerve. The soft foam reacts to the impact and kind of bounces back the effect straight to the ball.

Adidas did also create a “Power Pulse” system in the innersoles, by adding a chamber to the innersole filled with 30g metallic powder. So when kicking the ball the powder shifts forward in the chamber which increases the power. Adidas proved this in tests and the boot was said to create 3% more force and 8% more swerve than the Predators before. This popular boot was released in 2008 and there were more than 20 different colors available. Biggest stars to wear these were Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Michael Ballack and Daniele De Rossi.

Thank you for reading. More to come as always 😉

Can you spot the difference?

So what is going on here? 😜
Few weeks ago I bought these from local internet site selling second-hand items, I paid 25€+ shipping for them. Once I recieved them I noticed an interesting thing, something wasent right! I contacted the seller and told him about the problem, seller didn’t notice this issue (people in general wouldn’t notice) and I believed him. The seller refunded the money and I kept the boots.

Can you spot the problem? 

   
   

Adidas Predator “Made in Germany”

So I’m on my way to complete my collection of Adidas Predators. The collection concists of boots between 1994-2011, after this Adidas didn’t manufacture leather Predators anymore…

The big challenge in my collecting, regarding Predators, is that I try to find all boots that are made in Germany. The public version of Predators were made in coutrys far East, like Indonesia. As some of the proffesional players Predator boots are made in Germany. These means usually that they can be measured to the players foot, different leather used in the upper, different/combined soleplate, different innersole (like Beckham prefered the innersole from Predator Accelerator 1998 in his boots) and some uniq details to improve the boots to a style the player likes.

So I’m lucky enough to have found recently three new pairs to my collection that are made in Germany.
