Copa mundial

I think these are the football boots that have been the most helpful to me so far.

I first bought them when I started working, I believe it was about ’94, so they were already dressed the same as the current model.

At that time, of course, I bought them for the purpose of playing.

Regardless of whether I had the ability to match these football boots, I still wore them with exceptional feelings, and I think I took pretty good care of them and used them carefully.

When I was a student, that’s exactly what the original model with a white trefoil mark on a blue background was sold for, and I can still picture the faces of my (envious) friends who were wearing them.

In the 80’s they were basically a design where the leather at the heel didn’t extend to the side and didn’t hide the bottom of the three lines.

This image shows Kazushi Kimura’s Copa mundial in his current role.

If you fold back the shoe tongue, the back of the mark is white, which is cool.

But if you think about it, this looking Copa mundial was only made for 7 or 8 years, and since then it has been made for almost 30 years in almost the same current shape.

But how many minor changes have been made in those few 80’s?

I think there were at least four different types of the trefoil marks of shoe tongue alone.

I bought this one on ebay at a time when I was still in the early stages of my collecting career, because I wanted at least one old-fashioned Copa mundial.

I think the most common old Copa mundial on sale from Europe and the U.S. is a red trefoil mark on a black background like this model.

Naturally, if you think it’s made in West Germany, it’s made in the Czech Republic and the lines are flimsy because it’s not leather.

The Copa mundial from the 80’s seems to have quite a few countries of production as well.

How many football boots have you bought that you don’t even wear that are named Copa?

I’m not sure what I’m doing anymore, and I’m going to make sure I can see it all together on this site (increasing now).
