IMG_4270My Thoughts

Fit & Touch: Breaking in the classic Copa Mundials was surprisingly very quick and easy. It only took two training sessions before the boots started to fit very comfortably. It does take a bit longer for the soft and supple kangaroo leather upper to truly mold to your feet and offer the best possible fit, though. The fit is definitely not true to size; I recommend going down a full size as these boots are longer than regular boots and also because the kangaroo leather will stretch over time. The kangaroo leather upper found on the Copa Mundial is some of the softest I’ve ever experienced; I can definitely see why these boots have been so popular for the past 20 years. It becomes super soft and supple after a couple hours of wearing the boots and provides a true touch on the ball.

IMG_4285Performance: The Copa Mundial is a simple, classic boot that performs pretty well. It has no new technology whatsoever; it just has a kangaroo leather upper with an extended tongue on a direct-injected firm ground outsole. The kangaroo leather upper feels very comfortable on feet and offers a great touch on the ball while the simple direct-injected outsole offers good traction on firm ground surfaces, like natural grass. After testing these boots for a few weeks, I have not found any signs of deterioration or separation of the upper from the soleplate so it looks like these will hold up for quite some time.

IMG_4294Overall, the Copa Mundial continues to be sold to this day because it sets itself apart from nearly every other boot on the market. Unlike every modern boot, it doesn’t features any new technology. Instead, it features a soft, kangaroo leather upper, a classic fold-over tongue, and a direct-injected outsole for use on firm ground surfaces. Adidas have proven that simple is enough in this case; the Copa Mundial is undoubtedly old school and suits players in search of just that. You can pick up a pair for yourself on Amazon.IMG_4295
