Adidas AdiPower Predator Review


Adidas' latest incarnation of the legendary Predator.

I, like every football obsessed kid in the nineties, always dreamed of wearing Adidas Predators. When I pictured myself kitted out in the blue of Everton lifting the FA Cup, or in the white of England scoring the decisive goal in a World Cup Final, I was wearing Adidas Predators. They were the dream.

With the dawn of the Premier League era came Adidas’ revolutionary boot, for the first time, here was a football boot that was more than a running shoe with studs, something that did more than stop you from slipping over. Here was a boot that, like the glitz and glamour of the Premier League, like the technology of Sky’s razzle dazzle television coverage, like the arrival of exciting foreign talents on our shores, actually enhanced the football itself.

Visual Review: Everton Home Shirt 09/10 (LCS)

Everton and Le Coq Sportif together again, is it a good omen for Everton?

Everton's new home shirt, made by Le Coq Sportif.

Today I bring you my second review, after I last reviewed England’s new shirt a month or two ago. This time I bring you a visual review of Everton’s newly launched home kit for the ’09/’10 season, made by le Coq Sportif. It is just a visual review, in that it analyses only the aesthetic design of the shirt and not the fit and quality of the production, seeing as the shirt isn’t actually for sale yet. If you are a shirt retailer though, and would like a full review, get in touch and upon release we could work something out.

I must say I was initially a little horrfied upon seeing some leaked pictures of the design, but it has steadily grown on me and I think that this could end up being a very popular and succesful shirt design for Everton. Indeed, Everton and Le Coq Sportif are clearly hoping to bring back the success that they experienced together in the eighties, and the shirt is very much paying homage to the classic ‘hafnia’ design of that era.
