We showed you a one of these images before but we wanted to focus on the two colour-ways which look set to be used on the launch boots for the D5 in 2012. They are the Bright Blue/Infared/Collegiate Navy/White and the Black/Green/Infared, the boots that will released after the testing of the black-out D5s.
The D5s look set to be adidas’s attempt at matching the Nike CTR360 Maestri and the Umbro Geometra in the control category of football boots, an interesting step with the Predators known as a power and swerve boot in the past. Time will tell if this a new direction or just a new track for the Predator that will run parallel to the adipower.
Important things to notice from the pictures is the synthetic leather upper, the ball control pads, the SprintFrame design and the miCoach area built within the soleplate.
