The ever consistent adidas Copa Mundial has been reinvented with a fresh splash of new colors as the German brand looks to take the traditional range into the modern era. With the World Cup on the horizon, it makes sense for Adidas to push some changes now and it is quite obvious that these colorways have been inspired by Brazil and Samba.
There might be some traditionalists who are against the added colors, but I can’t see too many people having an issue considering the fact the Copa Mundial has been pretty much unchanged since their initial introduction in 1979. Since then, there have been over 10million pairs sold worldwide! With the Black Copa Mundial still available, I’m not sure why anyone would complain about Adidas adding a fresh appearance to the range. In fact, I love some of the new colors!
From left to right (above), the colors available come in Blast Purple, Vivid Berry, Solar Blue, Solar Zest and Solar Slime. Each has its own unique flavor and they are definitely set to create some sound waves when players notice you wearing a Copa in full HD color.

It has actually been some time since we have tested the Copa Mundial out, and since there is a whole new range of Samba colorways release, it only makes sense to test out a pair. That is on the horizon and something we are looking to put into place right now.
But as far as performance goes, you can’t really beat this range for quality and consistency. It is a boot that ranks among the favorites of even the pickiest players. They come with an outsole constructed of dual-density direct injected Polyurethane and moulded, conical studs that will suit both FG and modern AG surfaces. From the classic extended leather tongue down, the boot boasts a kangaroo leather upper section made from the softest ‘K’ leather available.
We expect that this colorway will retail for the same price as the limited edition White Copa we saw released a few months back, they hit the market at $179. Once we get full US release details, we will let you know where they are available to buy!
