No. 1 – adidas Predator LZ
Highlight: A boot that features 5 Lethal Zones, designed to improve ball handling, control and feel.
Top spot on the list goes to the latest installment of the Predator range simply because they are the best all round performing boot ever released. In a crazy twist. I wouldn’t actually rate this boot as the best Predator ever released. The Predator range has always represented Power, but adidas has made a dramatic shift that makes the LZ more of a control hybrid. Each of the 5 performance areas that sit across the upper has been strategically positioned to help improve ball control, handling and feel for increased precision and accuracy with every touch. The five zones include: First Touch, Dribble, Sweet Spot, Drive and Pass – each serve a very valid purpose and it is down to the individual player to find the ones that work best for them. They are comfortable, offer a glorious fit thanks to their hybridtouch upper, provide solid traction, have just enough technology to continually entertain your senses without overload…..to date, they rank as the most complete package that any player has ever worn!
