Which Boots Should I Choose – Answered!

Premier vs Copa

Nike Premier vs Adidas Copa Mundial

Bryan: Nike Premier – Nike has really pieced together a modern classic in the Premier and they work fantastically well on the pitch. Even though the Copa is a classic boot full of heritage, the performance is a little outdated and the weight falls well short of current expectations.

Kevin: Adidas Copa Mundial – Now we are talking, these are both real football boots, I really can’t decide between the two of them but I’ll go with the Copa’s as they have been around much longer (and I have a soft spot for a tongue on football boots).

Jim: Nike Premier – Right now the Copa is too bulky to keep up with the modern game in my opinion. I might catch some flack by saying this but even though some may consider it timeless, to me it just seems outdated. I truly won’t know until I try it out but right now I would want to try out the Premier first.

Tyler: Adidas Copa Mundial – Time honored and unchanged (relatively, for the time being) for over 30 years, the Mundial exudes old-school charm and new-school practicality. It’s the boot that keeps on giving.

Colin: Nike Premier – The Nike Premier is new, sleek, and light while the Adidas Copa Mundial is comfortable, classic, and has proven durability. That being said, I would go with the Nike Premier because of the increased flexibility of the soleplate and I feel they look better over all.

Ethan: Nike Premier –  I take the Premier over the Mundial because it is a slightly more toned down heritage boot.  I like how it doesn’t have the long tongue and the wrap around Nike swoosh is a beauty.  Also, the Premier is slightly cheaper than the Mundial.

Richard: Adidas Copa Mundial – As much as the Nike Premier has revolutionized the economical heritage releases, the Copa’s have been doing their thing longer than I’ve been alive, and are still being worn by professional players. I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I didn’t choose the Copa’s here.

Final Tally: Premier 4 – Copa Mundial 3

  1. Congrats! Great article!

  2. Having worn both the Tiempo and the adiPure 11 Pro, I have to say that the adiPure 11Pro is a great boot.. I would never compare it to the Tiempo though. I am happy the Tiempo is around because it retains the slightly more classic feel. I like both boots and can't pick one over the other. But I would say the for people wanting a more classic feel, go for the Tiempo. If you want a blend between modern and classic, then go with the adiPure 11Pro.

    • Also, In the Warrior vs. Nike matchup, I would take the Warrior. I have worn both and the Skreamer really surprised me. Plus the customer service at Warrior was second to none, making Nike's look almost un-professional.

  3. I had problems with the stud pressure in the Tiempo's as well, glad to hear I'm not alone on that.

    • Yeah at the front of my right foot was very uncomfortable. The left slightly uncomfortable as well. I was very disappointed with the Tiempo.

  4. How about comparing the Nike Tiempo IV to my son’s favorite boot, the Umbro Speciali 4 Pro HG?

  5. with veloce vs f 30, I would rather buy an old pair of top end shoes.

  6. what shoes should I wear if I am playing on a land with no grass on it????
