I'm a big fan of Adidassoccershoes and the CopaMundials are classics. The shoes are great, light weight, and easily conform to my feet. I can't recommend them enough. I wouldn't wear anything else.
Lasted me 15 years
My Copas died on me during a game today. The leather front tore away from the sole of my right shoe when I was making a sharp cut. It was a very sad day for me, as this pair of shoes has lasted me 15 years. I used them in my senior year of high school, during club and intramural games throughout college, and throughout several different intramural leagues wherever I lived over the years. They survived rain, mud, grass, and dirt. I have wide feet, and I remember thinking when I first bought them that they wouldn't last that long, since my wide feet would stretch out the leather too much. Boy was I wrong.
I am now debating whether to just duct tape my right shoe or buy another pair. I will probably opt for the latter, but I still have no doubt that a duct-taped right Copa shoe would last longer and give you better playability than the average shoe on the market.
Some of the other reviewers are stating that this shoe saw them through 3 years, 5 years and sometimes even 15 years. I must be much more demanding on my footwear since my pair of Copas went one year (almost to the day) before the leather on the right shoe split. To be fair, I previously had a few pairs of cheap Nike's and those would live about 3 months.
Regardless, this is still the best boot I've tried and I'm happily on my second pair now.
They are much more comfortable than my old cheap Adidas predator soccer cleats. Those were a waste of money. I was losing my faith in Adidas but with these cleats my faith came back. Don't buy cheap cleats unless you have a lot of money to spend on a Chiropractic.
I definitely recommend these cleats. They are not as expensive as other professional soccer cleats and perform very well in natural and artificial fields. I was reading that the Adidas Adipure were comfortable too, but let me tell you that these cleats have been the best selling cleats for so long for a reason.
