Limited Edition White Adidas Copa Mundial Released

White adidas Copa Mundial

This here is a thing of beauty – Adidas has relaunched an updated version of the Copa Mundial in limited numbers to recoup some much needed attention for the heritage range. And, with a look like this – a White Copa Mundial – it is absolutely sure to work!

Released in 1982, the Copa Mundial is the best-selling cleat in soccer history and has been worn by some of the all-time greats including Franz Beckenbauer, Michel Platini, Zico & Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Since then more than 10 million pairs have been sold and the Copa Mundial was actually the last revolutionary product innovation created by sporting goods legend and founder of the adidas brand Adi Dassler. He had been personally involved in the early development of the original Copa Mundial before he passed away in 1978.

This version, like the original, boasts a kangaroo leather upper and additional leather provided on the heel, intended to improve durability and stability.  There are some slight modifications between the new and the old, which are intended to make the new version slightly more modern without losing its old-school, traditional feel – the colorway has been reversed, obviously, with white being the prominent color launching the boot into the modern game.

  1. A stroke of genius…so simple yet so effective!!!

  2. imo it wont sell. People would rather a white adipure.

  3. The adiPure lost me when they went to calfskin. There's something about the feel you get with good quality K-leather.

  4. I was about to order a pair from Adidas yesterday, then noticed that they are listed as “full-grain leather,” not kangaroo. Chatted with an Adidas rep on the site who also told me they were made in Indonesia, not Germany. That made me change my mind.

    • I'm not sure where you are getting the info and the rep was definitely wrong!

      via adidas: "this version of the Copa continues to be made in Scheinfeld, close to adidas HQ in Germany. It boasts a kangaroo leather upper and additional leather provided on the heel"

      • I am reading the same info you are giving on However, here is the page from

        Product Information

        The men's Copa Mundial football boots have been running the beautiful game since the late '70s, and this version is just as skilled as ever. They have a full grain leather upper and a durable firm ground outsole.

        Full grain leather upper for comfort and soft feel
        Synthetic lining for comfort
        Durable outsole for firm natural grounds

        Perhaps the rep I chatted with was uninformed, in which case Adidas needs to update the page.

  5. te butz sa piekne!!!

  6. Revive the Copa name? It is still one of the best selling boots worldwide
