Best Adidas boots for controlling the boot! | Adidas Predator 19.1 | GSS show 4. episode


Hey! I’m Tarmo and this Global Soccerstore’s show 4. episode. In today’s video, we make a big overview of the Predator 19.1 football boots, which’s new colorway arrived at our store last week. So, if our video makes you think that you might need a pair, then you know where to get them. With the words “Adidas Predator” many of the older guys recall the robust leather boot with rubber striking zones, which was worn by players like Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham. The poster boy of the modern Predator is the French national team midfielder Paul Pogba and the boots themselves look and feel a lot different because the leather upper, rubber striking zones, and robustness are gone. Upper of the Predator 19.1 is made out of knitted material named PRIMEKNIT, which is used all over the shoe. You can see and feel the Primeknit in the collar and tongue area of the boot. In the midfoot and the toe area, the upper is covered with CONTROLSKIN layer, that gives upper its ridged texture. Thanks to this combination of materials, the upper of the boot feels soft and flexible. It also has a lightly padded feeling, just like a leather boot would have, but thinner. The only rubber element of the boot is found at the heel area, but the main purpose of this piece is to add protection and durability, rather than hitting curl balls. The tongue and collar stretch enough, so it is easy to put these boots on. The laces are quite shallow, so the fit is mostly customizable in the midfoot. The whole lining of the boot and the insole is covered with suede material. This helps to prevent the possible slippage of the foot inside the boot. Though, the insole itself could stay in place a bit better. A couple of times I felt that the insole of my plant foot has moved away from its original position more than I would like. When we turn the boot around, we can see that the CONTROLFRAME named soleplate of the Predator 19.1 is made out of plastic and has a structure to be stiff in the midfoot and flexible in the front just like one normal football boot should be. However, the flexibility in the front is a bit stiffer than it is on the other football boots. The stud pattern is usual – six studs at the front of the boot plus one in the middle to add traction and stability and for studs at the back. The rectangle shape of studs gives rather stronger traction than it would be with rounded ones. But when compared to V-shaped or bladed studs, the traction is slightly weaker. Straight out of the box, the boot fits quite well. The PRIMEKNIT upper is soft and takes the shape of the foot, therefore giving a quite personal fit. It doesn’t feel like the boot squeezes or rubs against my foot anywhere. When compared to the Superfly 6 Pro model, which I normally wear, the Predator 19.1 is wider and has more volume in the toe box. That’s why I think that getting this boot on their feet shouldn’t be a problem for anybody. Due to to the extra material which is added onto the upper to strengthen the lace holes, the laces run a bit difficulty through their lace holes. But on the other hand, the laces stay tight even without tying the knot. From the size side, regular US 8 (EU 41⅓ ) fitted me the best. Thanks to the soft upper, the touch with the ball is good and comfortable. The CONTROLSKIN cover layer gives the boot a slightly grippy feeling I felt a couple of times, that the ball sticks to my foot quite well. For me, it was more than I’m used to with my Superfly 6 Pros. Although the Predator 19.1 doesn’t have striking elements as the older models did, it is still extremely good to strike the ball in these boots. As a conclusion, Predator 19.1 is made for players for who striking and controlling the ball is most important. But what do you think, for which type of player the Predator suits the best?
