adidas Predator X TRX FG Cleats (black/white/red).

Some Tech Specs:

Newly developed Tuarus full-grain calf leather upper for a supreme touch, excellent fit and a natural look. An opti-fit upper construction creates the ultimate fit bringing the boot as close to the foot as possible for maximum movement control and maximum ball control. Re-engineered Predator is more abrasive for constant swerve, control and accuracy in any weather condition. Asymmetrical loop lacing for a larger, cleaner kicking surface. Dual compound Xternal heel counter is smaller but extremely strong and reduces pressure on the Achilles tendon.

Anatomically molded EVA insole for comfort.

Traxion FG sole for grip and comfort on firm, natural surfaces. Newly developed internal chassis construction contains a revolutionary Powerspine that minimizes energy loss and maximizes power. The Powerspine redirects power directly into the ball while offering important metatarsal protection.

Weighs 11.2 ounces.

World Cup Soccer Ball Collection

We can't show you this collection of 10 Official adidas World Cup Matchballs until October 19th (mark your calendars!), but our adidas representative, former NASL player, Adrian Brooks, brought a sample of the collection with him to our Birmingham office. We all got a unique chance to look at these up close!

He also shared the following story about the TelStar:

After the 1966 World Cup, Adi Dassler, founder of adidas, decided to create a special soccer ball which would be ideal for television, still fairly new at the time. Thus was born the famous TelStar ball! Making its first appearance in 1970, this ball was a simple black and white hexagonal design, created because, as you know, TV was black & white back then.
