Boot review: Adidas Predator Freak+

These are freakishly good, according to Swaz. So much so that he's been counting the spikes

Look

There are fewer spikes on this than the Mutator: 225 to 406. So there are fewer but, arguably, more. They’re more spread out – you’ve even got them on the tongue. They’re more considered.

Feel

I love the feel. I love the smell of a new boot too. It smells good. Reminds me of happy days as a child.

Control

They’re class at control, 100%. Amazing. The outsole is so firm that you can change direction really quickly too. Though you have to be half decent at football, of course.

They’ve adapted the tongue to have this little extra bit in the middle and honestly, it makes it so much easier to get the boot on and off. I’m a fan. In fact it’s not just a tongue, it’s a “two-piece collar”. It’s flamboyant.

Swaz factor

I’ll give them a four out of five. I just don’t like the colour. It is what is though, isn’t it? You can’t dispute how good the boot is. It’s a colour- preference thing.
