Adidas Copa Mundials are some of the most traditional boots on the market. The hard ground version of the Adidas World Cups, the Copa Mundials are the choice of boot for so many players, both professional and amateur, for so many years. The simply but effective styling and high quality materials have meant that Adidas have never had to change this range, never needed to be updated or modernised. They are what they are, a very good football boot!!
The K leather used on the Copa's is of fantastic quality, the suppleness is up there with any boot I've ever used, this means that blisters are really an issue at any point. The traction gained form the multiple hard ground studs is superb, especially for those preseason sessions or end of season game sin the heat of the sun on a rock hard pitch.
The fold over white tongue and wrap around laces are the real signature touch of these traditional boots. They feel like a dream when playing in them. They are tough and strong to protect you when stood on, but also padded for those delicate touches needed. The wrap around laces help lock your feet into the boot which gives you that secure feeling when running and passing.
The Copa Mundials obviously aren't the lightest boots on the market however as they are made for playing in the dry the soaking up of water isn't an issue like it can be for the World Cups. The Copas are also a very reasonable £90 in most stores, a lot cheaper than many modern yet inferior boots on the market these days.
When it comes to sizing the Copas are a fairly standard fit, they'll mould to your feet in no time, making them feel more like slippers than football boots. The durability is spot on, they can last for years an years if treated well, no soleplate or leather issue that I've come across so far.
It's a compliment to the Copa Mundial that Adidas have never had to tweak the design and yet people still flock to buy them each and every year. I really feel the Copa Mundial might just be the best boot ever!
Currently football boots seem to be all about how bright and colourful they can be which seems to be a trend from the younger generation. However if you are more of a sophisticated player and want to look stylish, the Copa Mundials are the ideal football boot for you.
They provide a fantastic visual appearance with their plain, smart looking black and white Adidas design. They are reasonably light meaning it doesn't feel as though you have got a ton of metal attached to your feet. But where i think they stand out is there comfort, they are like wearing a pair of slippers, but a pair with good protection. The leather is extremely soft meaning it will give a little for a tight fit which some prefer. The long laces, again more classic style provide a more secure lace up.
The moulded studs are ideal when the ground conditions are hard i.e. summer, but they can still be worn in the winter just as much. I would recommend that if you are looking for winter boots to get the world cups as they are studs and specialise in soft ground conditions, but as i said the Copa Mundials are good enough.
There are some minor elements that should be noted that hinder the boots. The tongue is a very nice looking long piece of material which gets stained instantly once using and is near on impossible to get back to the original colour. The other thing which is maybe more important is that if you use them regularly they will only last a season, as by the end the good quality soft leather will give and will start to split and the boots will be ruined.
They are reasonably priced but i would suggest going somewhere like sports direct to buy them as they sometimes have it about £10 cheaper than other shops.
The copa mudial the same same as the Addidas World cup boot. Many boots now chop and change their styles add little features that make the boot apparently better but how come the this boot hasn't?
The reason is the boot is made to a high quality and will last through the most testing scenarios of conditions, thats down to the quality of leather and stitching. The moulds are suitable for most surfaces some say they are okay for astro turf. I disagree on that point they are for a turf and 3g pitches. When I have enough i get these boots and I also work in a sports shop and there wildly popular. When people look for boots and paying this price they expect all the colours of rainbow and the boots to be endorsed by the worlds biggest footballing stars. There is no need with these boots buy them you will be extremely happy with them also really easy to clean to the football player who wants maintain a clean prestine look.
I find that when I play football it is best to wear a boot that does not show up. When playing Sunday league it tends to be the players in brink pink boots that seem to get kicked the most frequent and with the most anger. So I find nothing better to stick to a standard black boot.
The best standard black boot I have come across is the Adidas Copa Mundial. The boot is plain blain black with white Adidas stripes and tongue. As boots go for me it looks classy. The boot is crafted to mould to your foot. I find them very snug and comfortable throughout matches. Made of K leather (kangaroo) the boot is very lightweight yet has the toughness to get you through the season. Being lightweight allows you to be faster and react quicker. The leather can assist your power in striking the ball and adds extra speed. Despite being lightweight the boot offers protection through it tough leather allowing you to take all kinds of tackles and knocks. The boot comes with moulded studs that are perfect for hard pitches and I even use mine on artificial turf.
I usually buy these boots for my moulded pair and find they'll last around a year. The problem is the front of the boot tends to pull away from the sole leaving a slight gap. This can lead to the shape not being natural (my excuse for a bad touch).
Despite the wearing from the sole I cannot complain. This boot is snug, light, adds power and looks great. They usually cost around £60 - £80 but are well worth the money every season. With all these positives and attributes it is no surprise that these are world's bestselling football boot.
This is definitely the most iconic, famous boot ever made. It has stood the test of time brilliantly, as I don't think there are any boots still in production that go as far back as 1982 (or even 1979). Copa Mundial translates to World Cup (in Portuguese). This is written above the Adidas stripes on the side of the boots.
The lightweight Kangaroo leather is wonderfully soft, and even when you try them on in a shop, it will feel like you've had them for years! Your foot will be close to the ball - this can help your touch, and to get a good feel for the ball.
I have bought this boot 3 times in a row, because there is simply not a better boot. If you can get them for under £65, then you have done well.
The laces are pretty long, and most people will go underneath the boot, and then tie the knot over the tongue, keeping it down. The moulded studs are very useful for hard ground and also rubbercrumb (or astroturf).
I play a lot on rubbercrumb (artificial turf) and the boots have survived fairly well. I play about 3 times a week, and they've lasted about 18 months. Having used mines so much, the insides are getting worn away from continually planting my foot on the ground to shoot. This makes it a bit uncomfortable.
The boots look beautiful, they have a classic design -very simple, but it is effective. Tough, yet elegant. Soft and comfortable. These boots are the greatest in history, and I shall be buying them again!
The most iconic of all football boots and still not bettered, the Adidas Copa Mundial, which is Portuguese for World Cup pub quiz fans, was designed in 1979 and first saw light of day in time for the World Cup in Spain, 1982. In the 28 years, there have be little changes made to what is otherwise a succesful boot.
Constructed from lightweight Kangaroo leather, it fits the foot perfectly, bringing the players foot into close contact with the ball, and giving him better contol and feel. The stitching is completed in durable black cotton. It has an extended tongue which features the Adidas badge, this folds over the top of the laces. Around the heel, additional leather is placed in order to provide greater stability and durability. The outsole is constructed from a durable Polyurethane into which the twelve molded studs are affixed.
The boots are tagged with the words Copa Mundial above the famous three stripes, although some suppliers offer a service to print your own name.
In terms of usage, they are as comfortable a boot as you are likely to wear. The grip you recieve is excellent, allowing you to have total confidence in where you plant your standing leg, allowing you to concentrate on what you do with the other foot. Of course they won't turn you into the next Beckenbauer overnight but they will allow you to utilise the talent you have. And looks wise, there is no better sight on a football field than black leather boots with three white stripes. You can keep your Predators or F90s, for a little under £65, you too can dream of striding round the pitch like Der Kaiser on a Sunday morning. Then mistime a clearance into the back of your own net!!!
Adidas Copa Mundial, a magical football shoe
I have bought these football shoes after I played last season on the F50's of Adidas. I was a little bit last satisfied with these shoes due their little weird shape and they were made of plastic and exchangeable studs. No a big success. I went to the shop to get some new shoes and really liked the look of this one and since the first moment I tried them I love them.
The Copa Mundial is one of the most famous football shoes out there and the model became famous in the 80's and 90's. Since then the shoe sold more than 10 million times. Every year Adidas brings out a new model so that's over 25 years now. Why are these shoes so popular? Well the shoe is made of leather that's called kangaroo leather. It's not real kangaroo but they call it like that because the leather is very flexible and fits around your foot. This makes the shoe feel magical comfortable.
The reason why I bought them is because I do like the brand and even my last experience wasn't that good. From the first moment I tried the shoe on it felt like I have been wearing them for the last 10 years. Really comfortable perfect fitted around my foot and flexible. I knew right away these where the ones I wanted to buy.
Most important of course how they are while playing football. While no surprise really also comfortable. Due the flexible leather it really moves with your foot while playing which gives you the idea that you aren't really wearing any shoes. Here lays also a little negative point and that is that the shoes lack in support. Easy solvable because I bought a extra sole which give me more support. Only it cost me a extra 10 pounds for buying that. Really worth it in the end.
Adidas Copa Mundial is really a quality shoe which will last you quite a while and really gives you a comfortable feeling while using it. Because of its flexible leather the shoe fits around your foot and really gives it the feeling that you have used the shoe for many of years. I bought my pair for around 80 pounds which isn't really expensive especially if you compare them to Nike shoes and the money is certainly worth it for the quality to be getting.
Just so you know this review is going to be very biased as like so many these are one of my favorite pairs of boots. Also (for those of you who have spent the last 30 years on mars) the Copa Mundials and the world cup is the same boot; the Mundials are for hard or firm ground and the world cups for soft ground. The revolutionary Copa Mundials/world cups have set the standard for comfort for decades. Released almost 30 years ago they are still the worlds best selling football boots. With a proper "old skool" look, shape and performance the Copas/cups are perfection in boot form. Made from Kangaroo leather with a synthetic lining they fit any foot shape like a glove. They have an EVA insole for comfort and boy does it work. Not much else to say about these except buy them.
I would recommend these to anyone and everyone, no matter what sport you play or what position if you need to wear boots these are for you; they do not disappoint. They cost around £80, which will be the best £80 you have ever spent. You may need to polish them occasionally (which you don't often have to do with modern day boots) but that about it. WELL DONE ADIDAS!!!
The classic Adidas Copa Mundial, has the be the all time best boot EVER created for all footballers. The classic design that never changes, is the design your more likely to see all footballers endorse. In an age of technology, the Copa Mundial still survives against the new era of football boot. Anyone who plays football would say the Copa Mundial is the best par of boots by far, why, because the are evrything a footballer would want. The classic look, it being comfortable, it lasts for ages as well as the likeability of the boot. They still carry an expensive price tag, but the price is not a problem after playing in a pair of these bad boys. Once your in the changing room, lacing up your Copa Mundials for a game of football, the feel and spongy k-leather feel make your feet feel in heaven!
May be expensive, but are easily the best boots ever created!
The Adidas Copa Mundial football boots are in my opinion the best boots on the market today. They have been out there for a long time and in the last five years, I have purchased two pairs with the first lasting me for at least 3 seasons with the 2nd pair just recently bought to my delight.
They might not look the best on the market design wise but beauty doesnt always mean everything. They come in moulded studs which is suitable for all types of ground including soft ground, hard ground and artifical pitches. The Copa boots are very alike the Adidas World Cup boots which have been out there for more than 10 years and they still provide a massive hit. The boots are easy to clean, but the main aspect is that they are comfortable. Not only that but they last long unlike many of todays boots. A pair will last you at least 2 seaons minimum. And there real leather too!
Probably the most popular boot of the last 20 years. If I had a pound for every person I saw wearing these boots then... I'd have quit Dooyoo a long time ago!
These boots have become iconic for their traditional plain and simple look. They are famous for being mostly black apart from adidas's signature three white stripes. They are made of high quality leather, allowing for brilliant control, I have been using copa's for my entire career and most have lasted me at least 2 years. The laces are plain and simple, no nifty flashy side of the boot supa doopa powerswerve lacing here, just good old straight lacing down the middle perfect for a battling central midfielder like myself... albeit much less battling in recent years. The boots are very easy to clean and dirt doesnt show up too much as the boots are mainly black, everyone knows the worst part of football is boot cleaning so I love these boots!
The studs are made of a good quality plastic/rubber compound. I have found them to be very hardwearing and they dont appear to wear down on concrete which can be a problem when you play at some of the grounds I play at. The studs allow me to keep my balance on most pitches although you may find if the pitch is very boggy it would be better to wear some metal studs which allow more grip.
For years these boots have offered me perfect fit and superb comfort, the Copa Mondial is an ideal boot for players of all levels. Sure they may not have the wow factor of your predators or the flair factor of your pink nike's but these boots sure are damn good.
When I first started playing mens' football in this country I sat down in the dressing room, lacing up my Adidas Copa Mundials as an older player next to me smiled and said: "Like slippers with studs."
That is an accurate a description as I have ever heard of this timeless classic of a football boot. My first pair lasted three seasons of weekly use and the quality of the leather is so high that there is no reason a similar lifetime can be expected of every pair, provided they are looked after well.
I would stress, though, that the Copa Mundial version is the one with moulded studs and you will not last five minutes attempting to play in these on the average 'English winter' pitch, unless it is one which is frozen solid!
You will, however, be able to get plenty of use out of them on firm pitches, ones which are of a good standard (even when quite wet), and even some modern types of astroturf.
In an era in which boots come and go on a seemingly weekly basis, and all manner of colours, materials and styles are tested with mixed success, The Nuvo Mundial or Copa Mondial remains a must for all serious footballers. Classicly stylish and so comfortable they feel like trainers, these are the perfect boots for someone who doesn't need to look flashy. As my personal choice for the last 5 or so seasons, I give these my complete reccomendation
Moreso than many of their expensive counterparts these boots suggest a quality player when being worn, not just someone trying to grab attention, and they will be seen from the sunday league to the Premiership for many years to come. It is obvious once you have owned these boots why they have been around for so long. Since my first pair I have never gone a season without these boots, and although I've had many boots made by many brands, none have matched Copa Mondials for quality. A true classic.
I got my first pair of Adidas Copa Mundials about 6 years ago and i've never worn another boot since.
They are great for playing during the summer when the ground is a little too firm to take a metal stud, but i also love using them whilst playing 5 or 7 a side on astro-turf or plastic grass.
They are light enough to not slow you down and don't feel chunky as some other boots do. The leather is top notch and if you look after them they will easily last a full season, if not longer.
These boots have been available for decades but the simple look is still pleasing on the eye and i would prefer the time-less look of the copa mundial over the ever changing look of the predator any day.
Overall I think the Adidas Copa Mundial is a great football boot that has stood up to the test of time which really does speak volumes for the true quality of this product.
PS: One word of advice - always check that the boot is made in Germany and not China, as the Germany made ones are the better leather and much better quality!
I love these boots, unfortunately they have a to common knack of seperating from the sole near the ball of the foot, but most boots do this. However, not as frequently as these. Out of about 6 other teamates who all sport these boots, everyones has split in the same spot on both feet (which you would think eliminates any individual reasons for this). After looking into this problem, i came across an atricle written by a supposedly sponsored footballer, claiming he and his teamates had experienced the same problem. This footballer claims he spoke to adidas, and they told him, "dubbin" (a popular cleaning/"protecting" product used by many players, including my teamates and I, and this particular footballer) has an affect on the glue used on Copa Mundials, and inturn weakens it. Whether this is true i am not sure, but would love to know, and am now in the process of deciding if i should once again buy these boots, and not use "dubbin' on them, or if i should buy another boot. Another con of these boots is they are an old design using old technology, which im not saying is a bad thing, but with the new lighter boots (e.g. the new predators), these boots are beginning to age, and you would think the weight of a boot is pretty important. However those 198gram nikes are meant to be shockers for comfort. Pros : Everything else, love the feel. LOVE the studs and ofcourse the look. If the reason for these boots falling apart was merely the use of "dubbin" then they'd be a 5 star boot for sure, but i'll gues ill have to see on that if i buy a new pair (likely, unless the sheer lightness and comfort of the prediator mania is to much to resist, (UGLY buggers but arent they ?) (make sure u get the ones made in germany)
The world's best-selling football boot made from K-leather with moulded studs.
