New 2012 Predator LZ (Lethal Zones Instead Of D5)

So the massive news for the 2012 Predator release, is that they will no longer be called the D5. adidas have decided to call them the Predator LZ; the name coming from the lethal zones on the boot, you can see from the images we have of the boots that Lethal Zones will now be embroidered on the upper.

We aren’t sure why adidas have ditched the D5 name, but the 2012 Predator will be the LZ. We have lots of great first look images of the traditionally favoured colour-way for Predators and we think it looks amazing! What are your thoughts?

These Predator’s have a synthetic leather upper and the five zones on them (hence the previous D5 name) using various pods and stripes that should enhance ball control and passing accuracy.

They will also be the first Predators with miCoach, you can see the sole of the boot with the miCoach area in the image below. As well as the traditional red/black white Preds there are also a couple of images of other colourways, the Bright Blue/Infared/Collegiate Navy/White and Black/Green/Infared.

    i have only just got use to the boots not having the big tongue which for me was the trade mark of the predator now they are just looking like Nike boots. bring back the predator touch and accelerator boots these have buy far been the best of the bunch. If they can keep the world cups going why can’t they do it with the other classic boots. i bet they would sell far more of them than these new ones

    So what about the white color way with the orange strips? I would love to get these in the original white color way.

    These boots look like adipure and f50 mixed together but with fake synthetic leather, all I can say they should of just kept making them out of real calfskin or real kangaroo leather..

    cant understand why adidas have gone with a synthetic upper instead of a calf skin leather like they usually do. adidas are to focussed on making a light wieght boot rather a good boot now days. and this boot in know way will improve your touch of pass ability :L.

    Some one needs to knock some sense on the designers on the predator adidas department , these boots are fine for the f50 roster not for the predators, why ruin a perfect boot of the year for 2011 into this light weight crap.
    Not every player is interested on lightweight technology especially middlefilders.
    Release these as f50 & keep the current predz or lose your faithful predator fans to nike I’m sure they would find the ctr 360 more better suiting their style of play than these ugly looking f50’ish fake predz.

    Finally a rival for the Nike CTR360 Maestri.

    • Azhan Soundmatters Reply

      predator is for accuracy. its a rival for laser actually. 360 is for allround, just like adipower (if i'm not mistaken). adizero is to compete with mercurial series. and tiempo is for great touch. (=

    freak boots

  16. Cas Da La Evil Reply

    I always thought that the adipower was soon goner turn into a mi coach compatible boot and I thought the adipower was great but adidas ruined the look , the weight and the power, it simply turned into an ultra light , not good looking , crap boot . In my point of view I think this boot is not a predator but simply a f50 adizero.

    sad to see the new ones :-(,
    adidas is running out of ideas,
    the current preds are just great but still adidas must add the micoach tech so it could be better.

  21. Wacko Reply

    What’s going on with adidas? did they lost their taste of design? Adipower is already a great model, and now they mix predator with the earlier model of F50? The current one is fantastic already, please don’t release this one…

  22. Finnan97 Reply

    these are crap these are nothing like how predators should be, look at the originals in comparison to these, predators should be proper kangaroo leather not synthetic plastic like F50s.

  23. Ben Reply

    those boots are crap,adidas should of kept on developing the adipower with the mi-coach 🙁

  24. Groot Reply

    Adidas needs to stop changing things up. They better keep making adiPowers. Predators aren’t supposed to be ridiculously light.

    Not a fan. The current Preds are fantastic, why release a new design so quickly?

  28. Francesca Pia Villapando Reply

    COOL! how much haha:))

  29. Gemma Reply

    not to sure about these im all for new tech in boots but these just look like a vamped up version of the f50s – preds should be a tradionalish lookin boot thats made for tough tackling midfielders these jst look to light nt v center mid general like
