Sometimes a boot release comes about that takes everyone by surprise, and Sport-locker.net are happily flabbergasted with this one…

Because today, adidas have unveiled a limited edition version of their most famous football boot to date: the iconic Copa Mundial, in WHITE!!!

Released in 1982, the Copa Mundial is the best-selling boot in football history and has been worn by some of the all-time greats including Franz Beckenbauer, Michel Platini, Zico & Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Since then it has been sold over 10 million times and was actually the last revolutionary product innovation created by sporting goods legend and founder of the adidas brand Adi Dassler. He had been personally involved in the early development of the original Copa Mundial before he passed away in 1982.

adidas will release a limited number of pairs of the special White Copa Mundial available to footballers globally and they are sure to become a collector’s item when they go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday 1st October).

Going through very slight changes since the boot was designed for the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain, the Copa continues to be made in Scheinfeld, close to adidas HQ in Germany.

It boasts a kangaroo leather upper and additional leather provided on the heel, intended to improve durability and stability.

The new boot maintains the same qualities and feel of the traditional version but the colour way has been reversed with white being the prominent colour launching the boot into the modern game.
