Adidas are launching a new predator football boot just in time for the World Cup finals.

The +Predator Absolute features new PowerPulse technology, which shifts the centre of gravity closer to the point of impact.

The innersole delivers the sort of sweet spot science more usually found in golf clubs.

Scientists found that shooting with these boots increased ball speed by 2 percent compared to the most recent Predator, or by 5 percent compared to a standard football boot.

The boot comes with two insoles, one with a specially positioned 40g weight and one without. The weight, which has been moved from other parts of the boot, sits behind the foot at the point of impact creating maximum power transfer.

Interchangeable insoles allow players to customise to their needs, providing the most powerful or lightest Predator ever.
