Unveiling the adidas Predator 24: A Revolutionary Addition to the Solar Energy Pack

A new dawn is upon us as the calendar flips pages into yet another promising year, bringing with it the grand reveal of adidas' distinctly vibrant, new Predator 24. This new player on the field doesn't just conform to the classic tri-colour schematic, it revamps it completely. It’s the standout star of the adidas Solar Energy pack, further complemented by fresh colour renditions of the X Crazyfast and COPA Pure 2.

Stepping back a few weeks prior to Christmas, adidas left quite an impression when it launched the utterly charismatic Predator 30. It was the epitome of a harmonious blend of tribute and advancement, a nod of respect to the looming 30-year anniversary of this iconic silhouette. It encapsulated commendable elements of nostalgia (we couldn’t help but admire those three stripes and the returning tongue), together with a modern take on what a Predator stands for today - it’s the lightest of its kin to ever grace the sport.

This exceptional edition, with its appealing scarcity (a modest 1,994 pairs were produced, paying tribute to the initial launch date), was followed by the somewhat broader PredStrike collection. But the nagging question of whether we were witnessing a complete renovation of the Predator brand, or merely celebrating its 30th birthday still loomed. Now, the answer presents itself quite definitively with the revelation of the Predator 24.

The Predator 24, unlike its predecessors, takes on the year of release rather than continuing the conventional naming trend. As the frontrunner of the adidas Solar Energy Pack, it’s been spotted on the elite's feet, gracing pitches worldwide. However, now it's time for the world to witness its brilliance. Here it is, it's legit, christened, and ready to launch. The latest prodigy from the Predator dynasty is here.

The thought behind creating the Predator 24 was this: “If the creators had to initiate the Predator saga today, what would it resemble; how would it feel?” The outcome is an elegant weave of the earliest Predator DNA, notably the throwback to the legendary fold-over tongue reiterating the Mania fondness, along with the emblematic tri-colour palette, beautifully harmonised with the performance attributes.

Indeed, it holds the record as the lightest Predator to date, created to please the standards of the crème de la crème in the field. Such achievement is attributed to the selection of superior materials for the upper and the introduction of Control Frame 2.0, a brand-new lightweight and full-length outsole. Morphing from its predecessor Control Frame, this technology strays from the two-part configuration synchronizing perfectly with an external heel counter. The goal? To secure the foot in place and diminish heel slip.

Lying beneath that is the spanking new HybridTouch 2.0 upper, a reformed synthetic aspect with a suede semblance, impersonating the flexibility of leather. It caters to a contoured fit with a comfy cushion in vital contact spots, giving a plush touch on the ball. And naturally, what is a Predator without its signature rubber fins, fondly referred to as Strikeskin Technology. The location? Precisely where your strident strike needs them, to endorse perfect ball grip and precision in the shot-making.

The classic black, white, and red Predator 24 pays homage to the tremendous legacy, yet radiates an identity of its own. Radiating with powerful colours, officially named “Core Black/White/Solar Red”, the new boot isn’t shy to claim its place in the limelight. Completely wrapped in a zesty yellow taping, it is undeniably its own footwear, radiating confidence and vitality.

Born from the same family as the PredStrike collection, the silhouette comes in three varying designs, each tailored to different price points. You'll have the traditional laced variety, the innovative laceless model, and a nostalgic blend of the two that features a classic laced design with a fold-over tongue.

The Predator 24 stands supreme on this stage, but it's not alone - it's part of a power ensemble named the 'Solar Energy' pack. The X Crazyfast proudly wears a "Team Solar Yellow/Core Black/White" colour scheme, with zesty yellow as its core, painting a bold picture. The black accents serve as the perfect backdrop for the famous Three Stripes branding, while an unexpected splash of red on the soleplate borrows from the Predator's palette.

We can't forget the COPA Pure 2, donning a suave "Ivory/Core Black/Solar Red" finish. Yet again, the red is confined to the sole, beautifully contrasting with the neat off-white Ivory upper and the black branding.
