Released in 2010, the Predator X followed one of the most famous Predator lines, the Powerswerve. This was the first Predator model not to feature the iconic Predator Tongue
The upper featured a taurus leather upper, instead of a Kangaroo Leather upper like the previous lines. It wasn't as soft, but super durable and strong
The new rubber Predator element featured a dimpled softer plastic like material that looks like little suction cups to help with curve and power
The Sole Plate:
A 1-piece, hard plastic sole plate was used, that was slightly different than the previous 2-piece Powerswerve soleplate
The PowerSpine technology ensures for a very durable soleplate
The stud configuration wasn't all that much different, featuring a similar bladed pattern to the previous model and very similar to the Adipure
A large heel cup was used, as was used in the past Powerswerve model, but it appeared to be quite bulky and large. Nonetheless, it provided great comfort and solved any issues with heel slipping
Notes and Comments:
While Adidas faced a bit of back lash from this model, these boots were definitely built to last
No expense was spared on padding, comfort, and durability
The Predator X isn't the lightest of designs, but it does provide an overall structurally sound boot that never had any durability issues
Many great colorways were produced in this model as well. Becks featured an all red version for a while, the classic Black/Sun colorway was used in the WC, and this electricity colorway was modeled after the 98 LE Accelerator.
