adidas Release Limited Edition of White Copa Mundial Soccer Boots

adidas have released a limited edition version of its Copa Mundial boot, which is in white and is reverse of the classic black and white boot from 1982.

According to adidas:

“Released in 1982, the Copa Mundial is the best-selling boot in football history and has been worn by some of the all-time greats including Franz Beckenbauer, Michel Platini, Zico & Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Since then it has been sold over 10 million times and 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 1982.

“adidas will release a limited number of pairs of the special White Copa Mundial available to footballers globally and they are sure to become a collector’s item when they go on sale October 1.

“Going through very slight changes since the boot was designed for the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain, 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, intended to improve durability and stability.

“The new boot maintains the same qualities and feel of the traditional version but the color way has been reversed with white being the prominent color launching the boot into the modern game.”

Here are more images of the brand-new boot:

The White Copa Mundial is available now for purchase in selected adidas retail outlets, associated stockists and via the World Soccer Talk shop.

  1. I’m getting some. I think they’re HOT.

    The biggest problem with boots these days is that they make them all so darn ugly. I mean, Messi can get away with wearing neon orange and pink boots because he’s Messi. I need something that is less flashy.

    About the only way to get basic black or white boots sometimes is to use the Nike or Adidas custom services.

    1. Totally agree. It’s like with anything, if you are the best in the world you make it look good, if not it makes you look bad.

      I love traditional looking boots but the white with black stripes is just enough to punch it up.

      I am too young to remember the 82 world cup but i have some vague memories of seeing these in pictures in the late 80s.
