I've worn adidas soccer shoes my whole life: mundials-> predators (4-5 years) -> Adipure (3 years - AdiPure IVs were probably my favorite shoes ever, aside from their awful durability). I'm super skeptical of non-kangaroo leather shoes, especially all the synthetic stuff. The fact that these were leather immediately appealed to me. 1.) they fit to size. I'm generally between a 10.5 (when they aren't consistent) and an 11 in an adidas, and an 11 fits me perfectly. 2.) the leather on these is awesome. Disregard them not calling it kangaroo. These shoes fit incredibly well. I've only worn them 3 times and they're already my favorite shoes I've ever worn. The touch is consistent. 3.) super light. Not used to adidas shoes this light. 4.) $185 is fair to me. 5.) fair criticism on the tongue moving to the side, but its not in an uncomfortable way. I adjust it occasionally, but mainly for aesthetic reasons. Also, i hardly ever write reviews. Adidas should send me a giftcard!
You can't go wrong with adidas when it comes to football/soccer. The Mundial Team are ideal for turf play (yes... obviously) but also for great for grass-play on firmer pitches. Here in Georgia it doesn't rain as much as it does back in the UK, so I can play in turf shoes on grass, even in the rain, pretty much year round. I broke in the MT's by wearing them around the house on and off for a few days... then to the store etc... just taking it easy... gradually wearing them more & more (ONLY for the break-in period though, now I only use the for training/matches on turf/grass) They were a little snug out of the box - my left foot is 9.5 US and my right is a 9 US - I purchased an 8.5 US. Now, two weeks later... they fit like a glove... That'll be the Kangaroo leather. When I was choosing which shoes to purchase I picked the MT's for these reasons: 1. I trust Adidas when it comes to Football (Period). 2. This shoe has been around 30-years (and wouldn't still be here if it wasn't relevant). 3. Kangaroo leather - it doesn't get softer than this... 4. When you break in these shoes, its like playing in glove like slippers... and I like playing in slippers! 5. Touch & Feel: Slipper like boots = good touch without loss of protection. 6. Protection: I deal with "big-footed / stampy / pushy" defenders for 90 mins, I need to feel protected and lightweight boots just don't cut it. To the critics that say they're too heavy or only good for defenders... The 5 or 6oz difference between these shoes and a super light cleat really is nothing, even if you're a striker or a winger you can wear these shoes. On that note... If you're slow I doubt it's because of the shoes... i.e. wearing the same shoes as Ronaldo or Messi will not make you the next Ronaldo or Messi... (Which makes me wonder what shoes they wore during the formative years of their respective careers - I doubt they were 1oz carbon fiber slippers!). So for the youngsters out there... You'll adapt to the weight difference, and you'll get stronger doing it. And for the older guys like me, it's a no brainer - these are so comfortable it's ridiculous... you'll forget about your shoes and just focus on the game. Hopefully I've convinced you to go ahead and buy these great shoes. If you look after them properly, they'll last for years. On that note: 1. Clean and towel dry after wear (a little warm water should do it). 2. Stuff with newspaper to absorb water. 3. Leave to dry overnight out of direct sunlight and away from heat. 4. Invest in some 'leather food' from England, to treat, nourish and protect the best turf shoes you'll ever own. Hopefully you'll find this review helpful. There are a lot of shoes out there, but not many as good as these.
Got this pair of boots in Sydney today AHEAD OF NEXT WEEK's official launch in Australia. The boots look absolutely stunning and fit even better than the previous generation of F50. The synthetic leather feels like second skin and the difference it makes on first touch and ball control is obvious.
I have had my first pair of Copas for 5 years, I now have to replace them. I play on hard turf in central Texas. These boots get beat up, I play between 2 - 4 games a week. I have regular boots and sneakers that haven't lasted as long as my Copas. They are light, durable, and feel great. I have tried on other boots from Adidas and other brands but none feel as good as the Copas. Thanks Adidas!
these boots were recommended to me by my personal football coach, following several seasons with uncomfortable boots. however my mum was hesitant to purchase them because of price. but she saved some money in the long run as i have had these for 10 years i am on my way today to purchase my 11 year old brother the same boots as he says they are 'cool' (my mum is pleased about that). Consequently i would recommend these to any young or senior players that would like to be comfortable whilst playing the beautiful game. best wishes with your boots. Jake. 23 London
I have recently bought the Copa Mundial football boots and I had chances to play matches with them. They are simply amazing and very comfortable! It seems that they can fit everybody and their unique vintage look is outstanding! If I need to buy a new pair of football boots I will certainly go for them again, without any hesitation! Thank you Adidas for selling those amazing and unique boots!
In relation to soccer, these boots are s*x. These boots are actually perfect, from the perfectly designed light weight in the boot and to new advanced modification in the studs. These boots are amazing, never have I found a soccer boot that fits my playing style as perfect as these. I know price is a major factor to incorporate into the purchasing of a new pair of boots, but not with the F50 Adizero FG's. If you are a soccer player, you need a pair of these boots. Not want...NEED! Regardless of the price. On the plus side they even look amazing so win win
There is a reason why these cleats have been around for so long. It's because of their comfort, strength, durability, etc. One piece of advice, try the cleats on a the store before you purchase them because the leather on each pair may be a little different and if you have purchased a pair in the past, you probably have realized that the cleat stretches after multiple uses. I've had one pair of these cleats for over a year and I play hard each week and they are still in great shape. These are leather, so you may have to use a shoe freshener every once in a while. Overall, these are an incredible purchase for everyone.
Played indoor football for many years in trainers, then found Adidas Samba and thought that they were good. Now had a pair of these for a year or so and can say that they are easily the best indoor football shoes i've ever had. Superb grip, outstanding feel and fit. Won't ever use anything else.
Excellent firm ground shoe with great feel. Works great on grass or on turf. Broke in easy after one day of playing (90 minutes). Very comfortable shoe... with other cleats I have had to add inserts for comfort, not with the Copa's. Buy one size down. I wear a size 10 for most Adidas shoes, but for the Copa Mundial I got a size 9 and still have a finger width of room in the toe. Also, this cleat is wider than most other Adidas cleats (which I think are usually too narrow), so I would call these normal width compared to other brand cleats.
I am now in my thirty and dont expect to play football (soccer) much longer, still I decided to go crazy and buy a final pair of football shoes. By "crazy", I mean I decided to spend significantly more than I normally do on pair of football shoes... And I dont regret it. The first think I noticed was how light those shoes were, it took me a game or two to adjust, but I love it now. I am not used to wearing such light shoes and you will feel a difference right away. The leather is apparently made of kangaroo, I havent had my shoes that long so I cannot really comment much on this. I assume the fact its kangaroo leather helps make the shoe lighter, however what I am trying to say is that I am not sure if K-leather is more durable than durable leather. Time will tell. Regardless. A great shoe. Highly recommend.
If you wear Copa Mundial and is looking to play indoor, I STRONGLY recommend these AWESOME indoor shoes. ALL the quality of your Copa Mundial design for the indoor. I recommend at least half size smaller since the leather will stretch. You won't be disappointed! ! !
Make sure they fit for length as they will stretch for days on the width side. The look is totally timeless. These babies are a design classic. The comfort is great and just lets you get on with your game. You need to take care of them but potentially they can last a long time. Replace the shoddy laces and put better insole/orthotic in a the job is a good one.
I've had these boots for 12 years now, and they're still taking a beating and holding up! Once you get a pair and break them in, they truly learn your foot and wrap it like a glove. The Kangaroo leather is soft yet durable. I'm considering new cleats now since they are starting to wear a little bit, but I'm hesitating since these fit my feet so well.
As a professional footballer my boots need to be comfy however I previously owned a pair of Adizero's but found them uncomfortable after a few weeks of training every day. Adidas World Cup boots were recomended to me by my coach who was an Endland international goal keeper who knows what hes talking about!! They truly are the comfiest boots around. Four front studs gives fantastic balance for a goalkeeper and perfect grip in all conditions.
