    Very nice. I would guess they weigh about as much as they Manias from looking at them...

    cool

    hey, those cleats are so sweet. I've been looking for pics of them for like a month now. Thanks for uploading those pics. Where did you get them? Would there be any way I could get my hands on a pair of them?

    I got those at a Salesman Sample sale (Adidas makes new models of shoes and shows them to the retailers before releasing them). They sell them at half off of the regular retail price. You would have to find out who your adidas Rep. for your reigon is. Otherwise, check Ebay. Sometimes samples make their way there.

    I love the look of the new Preds, I had only seen the black ones in an adidas catalog and the pics in ther didn't do them justice, they have similar look to the climacool indoor in sliver and red with the way the predator islands run on the side.

    My question is to ADIKeeper, how is the fit of the boot compared to other Predators? These look a little wider than the Mania model and built more for people with a more normal foot type, while the Mania seemed to be built on a last with a very high arch since it was very curved and the islands ran almost around and up like the metatarsals of a person with a high arch.

    Also be on the look out for the Adidas F50 which is adidas answer to the Vapor, from what i hear its going to be lighter than the vapor and i know for a fact it has a covred laceing system and insoles like the Puma Shudoh.

    I am hoping to get an interview with Adidas in the very near future to join their footwear design team, and anyone on here who knows me from other posts knows this is my dream job, I will let you guys know how it works out.

    As far as the fit goes, I'm not too sure. I was wearing Manics before I went to the Pulses. The boot does hug the foot more than the manics. I do not have that high of an arch and my feet are not too narrow. The external heel cup feels much different compared to the manics.


    I also have those ClimaCool Indoor's From a previous sample sale. :D.

    the externam heel cup will feel much different, because on the Manics there isn't one really, it's just a different color to make it look like it has one like the Mania's.

    I love the Heel-cup. It gives me more stability.

    Does anyone know if Beckham was wearing the Pulses during the match vs. Turkey? If so...pics? Link?

    Thanks for the info on the boots, I guess I will just have to wait until they come out to see if they fit me better than the mania.

    Becks and the rest of the adidas sponsered guys are still wearing the Mania on while playing as of last week when I watched Madrid in the CL, when Becks was in the Turkey match he was wearing the Mania.

    One thing that often happens with new model shoes and I dont think I had this on my thread I started sometime back about players wearing boots that on look like ones sold in stores, is that if a demo model shoe is being tested, often the shoe players wear have all the features of the new model but is put on the boot that looks like the one currently being offer in stores for example Beckham could be using a boot that looks like the Mania from a few feet away but up close you would see it has the islands of the Pulse as well as the slightly different heel cup and midfoot material that is making the boots lighter.

    Adidas did this with the Mania for about a year before it was released and the just made the boot look like the Percisions I have an old Eurosport w/ Del Piero wearing Blue Percisons and if you have a sharp eye you can see they really are Manias I also have a pic of Rui Cosat with Manias that look like the black Percisions.

    Umbro did this withe new XAI's but they just made the boot all black while Owen Shearer and Rooney(now with Nike) were testing it out

    Finding sales reps

    Are lists of sales reps published anywhere or is it a matter of hitting the pavement and talking to store owners?

    The job I am in touch with adidas about isn't in the graphic design dept, they have people that do that aspect, my area would be in overall product development I would work with everyone form the marketing dept. to the graphic design team and then in product testing and final product launch.

    the predator island config is really interesting

    i'd appreciate this boot even more if it weren't for the colour scheme. the red cladding on the heel cup and the outsole is...childish for lack of a better word. still curious about them though
