The Copa 17.1 completes a full "Blue Blast" takeover as adidas slap a third colourway on their modernised heritage silo. The wardrobe essential of any player gets wrapped in a "Blue/White/Black" suit meaning you can probably throw away those split Copa Mundial's held together by tape.

The ones that live under your stairs? Yeah, they can go now. But, they won't. That's like taking the dog to the kennels, it's part of the family. Man's best friend. Aaaanyway... after a quick return to its traditional form in black and white, the adidas COPA 17.1 is kitted back up in a colour with a blast of blue to sit in line with the complete "Blue Blast" collection that spans across the ACE 17+ Purecontrol, X 16+ Purechaos and Messi 16+ Pureagility.

Some description

Keeping things simple with a smart tricoloured design on k-leather upper, the COPA 17.1 also features a compression tongue and SprintFrame outsole to ensure its fit to go at the highest level. Once you accept there isn't a famous fold-over tongue, you begin to realise that the COPA 17.1 is a far better equipped football boot than the Copa Mundial, certainly in performance terms. It hurts to say, but it's unquestionably true.
