The Predator Absolian is a man's soccer shoe made by Adidas in one of five styles: the LZ TRX FG cleats, Nitrocharge 2.0 FG cleats, Instinct FG cleats, F5 TRX FG Cleats and 11 NOVA FG cleats. All the shoes are designed to be worn on regular grass when the ground is firm.
The Predator Absolian soccer cleats feature Traxion 2.0 FG stud configuration and a synthetic leather upper to support a shoe that is lightweight and durable while providing maximum grip. A premolded EVA sock liner and antislip EVA inserts supply increased comfort on the playing field. These features are designed to give the player increased acceleration and control. In addition to the Predator shoes, the Predator collection extends to balls, training wear, gloves, shin guards, jerseys and jackets.
The first pair of soccer cleats made by Adidas was crafted in Herzogenaurach, Germany. The shoes, which were conceived and designed by the founder of the company, Adi Dassler, were introduced in 1925. The Argentinia style, also designed by Adi Dassler, was worn by Germany's soccer team during the 1954 World Cup play. The shoe was innovative as it featured replaceable screw-in studs, a soft toe cap and a low-cut design.
