You might have caught sight of some of the pics already, but these are pretty special either way. Tomorrow will see the new adidas Predator boots debut on the sweet feet of some of Europe's top players.
The launch event for the adidas Predator Lethal Zones was held in Manchester this week and as well as putting Edin Dzeko, Nani and Tom Cleverley through their paces, IBWM's Dave Hartrick got water cannons and things fired at him. All in the name of research mind you, but more on that next week.
The boots themselves have been designed with the input of a number of top players and place specific focus on five key 'Lethal Zones' - Drive, Dribble, Pass, First Touch and a golf like 'Sweet Spot'. The zones are made of super-light rubber and memory foam, with each 3-D zone designed to support perfect ball control.
adidas Predator Lethal Zones go on global release in June.
