Incredible Classic Boot - Oct 24, 2013
Player: Mikal Wagner (Carbondale, Illinois)
I bought these boots because I was on somewhat of a budget but wanted a good pair of soccer cleats to play in. Normally I usually wear Nike cleats and have almost always gone with total 90 series and the ctr360 series. This is truly the first pair of Adidas cleats I have decided to try out on pitch and I'm not disappointed. I usually wear a size 9 U.S. Nike and I have narrow feet, but had to get a much smaller size in these. I actually had to get a size 7 U.S. but expect to most likely have to compensate a smaller size of about half or one whole size. I think my size was because I have very small feet. These cleats run more narrow than most other modern Adidas cleats I tried on predators/adipures which is why I usually go back to Nike but these are certainly an exception to the Adidas norm.The break in time was longer than what I expected about 6-8 hours of playing time, but when they finally did they fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable! The best cleats I have owned! Chelsea Dubin Leather Food helped the break in process and also helped with water proofing. These cleats are definitely an excellent buy compared to the usual price I had to pay for Nike total 90s and ctr 360s 200-300$. These cleats are very durable and touch on the ball is impeccable. I may never go back to synthetic again. I was hesitant switching from Nike to Adidas but these cleats have taken all my worries away. Even with narrow feet these cleats molded very well. I will definitely be buying another pair soon when they feature the new colors for the 2014 world cup.

Classic boot for a classy game - Oct 22, 2013
Coach: Johann (Merritt Island, FL USA)
While searching for my next set of boots, I was mesmerized with the variety of great shoes available. The colors, the technology, the song and dance. I have gone through many expensive boots that were fun looking but didn't have the durability I expected for the prices I was paying. I finally caved in and wanted to find out for myself why a boot that has been around so long was still hanging around with the new boys in town. Well, I have been pleasantly surprised. The simple design and comfort of the kangaroo leather is classically refreshing. The leather molds around your foot better than most boots because it's one continuous cut of leather...no synthetic blend of spliced materials. The touch is true and better yet, this boot is made to last. The cost-benefit is on the Copa's side as well. Overall, very happy to use this boot for many years. Thank you Adidas and Soccer.com!

Great support but heavy & sized long - Oct 09, 2013
Player: Harold ( USA)
They feel great, but they are heavy compared to other boots I've had in the past and are a run long for thinner feet keep that in mind when ordering. I had to go down a full size.

soccer boot review - Sep 28, 2013
Player: sunshinw (KY)
This boot is the most pragmatic boot probably to date. Its simplicity and its durability is unmatched. Not only that but its one of a select few boots that are versatile for any position. I'm ecstatic that I have it.

Still going strong - Sep 13, 2013
Coach: TIM (CT)
Just browsing around for boots and decided to look at the Copas on this site. I've worn these boots for 30 yrs. 2 pairs in that time frame, and saw all the reviews. Had to check them out. Everybody says what I'm thinking. I've played for 20 yrs., coaching since with these boots. Originally tagged from Germany. My second pair made in Indonesia. Still great craftsmanship. Feed your Kangaroo leather and they WILL last along time. Touch and response, GREAT. The feeling of slipping them on after a previous match or training in inclement weather is great, snug and form fitting after getting wet. Going to buy another pair in future. Still trying to convince my teens to try a pair. Guess they're not colorful enough. Their loss. teens

Shoe Sizing - Sep 04, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous (Canada)
Shoe sizing is not true to size and seem to run about a 1/2 size bigger. Hubby is typically a 9 in the indoor turf shoe and this shoe was a bit big in the same size.

Why the Copa is Still the Best - Aug 25, 2013
Player: Jose Reyes (Ohio)
I have to say that I am just absolutely astounded with this shoe. Starting out I was a little skeptical. While I am a fan of K-leather boots, I definitely normally wear boots that have more color and have more modern feel to them. I have to say that I love these boots. The upper is fantastic. The leather is so soft from right out of the box and it only gets softer. The touch and feel for the ball is amazing.The quality of the leather is simply top notch for the price. I am a center back who dribbles a lot. These shoes feel great for those tricky little step overs and flicks. Shooting also feels great. Shots are solid yet soft. I will admit that the traction on these bad boys doesn't exactly grip like a Vapor, however it gets the job done and does it very well. The tongue is large and a bit bothersome a from the first wear, but after a training session I guarantee that this will change. The only downside that I will say these shoes have is their weight. I normally don't care about the weight of the shoe all too much. With these the weight doesn't necessarily bother me. The weight simply reminds me that they are on my feet. Over all how do they compare to the NIke Premier. I have both and have purposely worn both the same amount of time. While the NIke Premier is a great boot it simply doesn't compare in quality. I take great care of my boots and my pair of Premiers is already starting to show sings of being done. The Copa on the other hand still looks new. My advice is this. If you don't mind having to buy a boot more frequently and want a lighter boot, than buy the Premier. If you want a boot that is going to last longer with a similar feel, get the Copa. When you order the Copa, make sure to order a full size down. The comfort of this shoe is determined by the initial fit. If it doesn't fit snug from the first time you try them on, you will be left with a sloppy fit. This is simply a fantastic boot and possibly the best in terms of value for money. 5 Stars.

Easy to break in. - Aug 22, 2013
Player: Jane (MN)
This is a great shoe, I often get blisters when breaking in a new shoe but not this one. I am a woman and this is a mens shoe. I am usually an 8.5 running shoe, an 8 regular shoe and ordered a 6 in men's and it was perfect.

These are men's sizes - Jul 16, 2013
From what I recall, the Adidas Copa Mundial is technically a men's shoe so women should order the men's size that is comparable to their women's size

Best boot for comfort hands down! - May 03, 2013
Reviewer: Chris (North Western Ontario, Canada)
I have played soccer for over 20 years and I have tried the most expensive boots and I figured I would try this boot since had great reviews ....Lets put it this way money well spent but do make sure order a smaller size for sure..I normally wear 10.5 and I have extra wide feet and the 10 is pretty much perfect fit. So probably a full size smaller for the average foot.
