We know you’ve waited all Spring for these cleats. As the hype has built up around a brand new cleat from adidas– the Predator LZ, and new colorways to return to a classic– the F50 adiZERO, you’ve probably been preoccupied with some exciting international soccer. Maybe you even caught a glimpse of the new Predators on the feet of some of Europe’s hottest stars like Robin Van Persie and Xavi Hernandez.
Well the wait is almost over. And as we wait in anticipation of the EURO 2012 Tournament from Poland/Ukraine, the tension only grows stronger, as the end of the European leagues marks the beginning of the EURO tournament, sometimes labeled as a mini World Cup.
Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the adidas Predator LZ TRX FG soccer shoes as well as the Predator LZ SL cleats, with two colorways of their own. First, lets examine the iconic color combination we have all seen by now. The Bright Blue/Infrared Predator LZ is cool and electrifying.
Weighing in at 7.9 ounces (only 225 grams!) this cleat is fast enough, and with enough weaponry to back it up, it just may be the most dangerous cleat to ever hit the pitch. Five isolated lethal zones deliver players enhanced performance for every aspect of the touching the ball.
1) The first touch pad at the top of toe enables the best touch when receiving off variable speeds. The ball stays close, and keeps you in control.
2) The dribble pad on the lateral forefoot is firm yet stable. You’ll keep the ball close when dribbling in-stride, or breaking away after receiving that perfect through ball.
3) The drive pads on the top/instep allow for monstrous long passes. Whether clearing or taking long free kicks, you’ll have the power to deliver the ball where you want.
4) The lower instep allows for precision passing at close distances. It’s padded to absorb but shaped to strike consistent spin and true flight.
5) The last zone: the sweet spot. The lateral/inner toe pad is where you strike from range or when streaking away past defenders.
All in All, this boot may deliver the best display of tools for the player with the right skill. You can take your game to the next level with this boot. If you want to shed some extra weight, no problem! Just try to Predator LZ TRX FG SL, with sharp contrasting colors and a few grams lighter, you’ll increase your speed to the most dangerous levels.
