Notes - Top range Adidas Predator X football boots released in 2010 as a special edition for the UEFA Champions League. This tenth edition of the Adidas Predator silo was the first not to feature the iconic tongue on the upper while also introducing 'optifit' technology for a closer and more comfortable fit around the foot. This particular model features the special white and blue colourway with the Champions League starts featuring under the rubber fins at the forefront to give this model an eye-catching look. A soft 'K' leather makes up the upper for soft touch and typical performance renowned with the Predator silo, while an external heel counter at the rear adds improved strength to the chassis and protection for the back of the foot. The three iconic Predator stripes still remain a constant as they have in all previous generations of the boot along with rubber on the upper for improved traction with the ball. The outsole uses 'Powerspine' technology for improved strength to the chassis and to assist with weight shift for increased power, while the soleplate is made up of 6 metal studs that are suitable for use on soft ground surfaces. A special edition boot, dedicated to one of the biggest competitions.
