GUWAHATI, Jan 27: Adidas revealed Predator 20 Mutator with DEMONSKIN, an all-new technology developed to enhance grip on the ball and maximise control on Monday. Taking cues from the extremes of nature, Predator 20 Mutator sees the boot’s iconic shape re-imagined further, with a striking silhouette centring on a high collar and low-cut front creating a sharp and streamlined design mutation.
The boot offers a two-plate stud configuration that reduces weight and allows a 360 design where the upper material wraps under the foot. This construction, together with the Sockfit collar that locks down and adjusts to the unique contours of the wearer’s foot, ensures anatomical fit for support. The inclusion of Hybrid studs further amplifies the boot’s level of rotation and traction.
Ben Herath, adidas Football Design Director said, “When we launched the first Predator in 1994, it changed the game. We’ve since been relentless in pushing the boundaries of innovation in its design, ensuring it remains at the forefront of football boot technology. Predator is more than just a boot. It is synonymous with iconic footballing moments, worn by greats of the game that in their own way have become mythological figures of the sport. For 2020 we wanted to unleash Predator to a new generation. It truly is a breakthrough innovation for us at adidas Football – something brand-new with tangible benefits to gameplay. This was evidenced in player testing, where many spoke of the immediate difference they felt with the ball at their feet.”
