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.

classic/sure bet - Mar 18, 2013
Player: Adolfo (Lake Elsinore, CA)
The Copa already has excellent reviews, what I wanna say is that like many players, I've worn these shoes for over 20 years. Have tried the newer tech shoes several times even in the $150-180 price range and always come back to these. Yes, the shoe is dated and could use better soleplate and support, but when considering all the pros and cons these shoe is on top.

Just as good as I remember - Feb 22, 2013
Coach: AlvesR (Marbury, AL)
Hard to improve on these cleats - they are a classic for a reason. They bring back memories on my high school years - if only they could bring back my speed and youth!

Overall - Oct 18, 2012
Player: Luis Carlos Ramirez (Yuma, AZ, USA)
I have only bought one pair of Copas and i have only used them twice. Right out of the box the leather is super soft. Sense the studs are a type of rubber and the sole plate is thick there is no stud pressure whatsoever. The laces are very long but that is normal for the Copas, but sense most of us are used to short laces you might want to buy a pair. Although the laces do give you that tight fight in the middle of your foot. I still stand at my belifes where everyone should try the Copas because they are just amazing.
