adidas have today set tongues wagging once again with the release of two colour updates to the legendary Copa Mundial; no, it’s not more Samba colours, it’s two black-out and white-out editions – and they’re pretty darn perfect.
From the tip of the iconic tongue to the bottom of the studs, these are two bonafide ‘triples’ – which is to say, Triple-White and Triple-Black.
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.
He had been personally involved in the early development of the original Copa Mundial before he passed away in 1982.
And rightly so.
