CLASSIC & COMFORTABLE.
I remember putting on my first pair of Copa's. The brand with three stripes, the kangaroo leather, the extra long laces that had to be wrapped around like spaghetti straps twice to get the comfortable-tight feel. The separate purchase of the tongue ties, leather cleaner and shoe bag.
I was just a kid who looked up to his brother and remember the words murmured from my father to him, you're getting a pair once you've reached a competitive level. What was that competitive level? Who knows really. But was was definitely true was that Adidas Copa Mundial was the best cleat any kid could have and only the best kids on the field wore them.
Will Copa's survive to see another century with all the new technology today, color variations, and hype around the latest and greatest trendy shoes, we will just have to see. Share your thoughts below and let us know about your first pair of Copa's.
