Introducing a streamlined core-black and metallic silver colourway to the 2020 debut profile, these soccer-inspired adidas Copa Nationale Shoes combine brushed suede uppers with premium-quality synthetic leathers and mesh inserts for rigid and reliable boardfeel and highly-responsive wear. A split-tone jet black and gum-brown rubberised cupsole is enhanced with an auxetic tread pattern and an underfoot pivot-point for exceptional grip and traction, whilst the lower heel brace and the textured TPU trim overlay around the toe-vamp supply an impact-minded finish that extends out from its cushioned midsole, moulded skate-specific Adiprene sockliner and its reinforced EVA heel. All-black suede wraps around the front of the Adituff toe box with mirrored triple-stacked curved stitching for a low-key reference to archived soccer silhouettes, whilst the traditional triple-stripe decals across both the exterior and interior side walls have been uplifted with metallic-silver trims for an after-dark inspired vibe. The padded, white-trefoil branded tongue is secured in place by a discreet six-eyelet recessed lacing system, with the well-cushioned synthetic black-leather ankle collar and the padded ankle-sides offering additional support and consistency regardless of setting. Signed off with debossed grey-washed ‘adidas’ trefoil branding across the exterior sidewalls, these soccer-spun skate shoes combine modern initiatives with classic sportswear comfort to deliver a truly unique style.
Joining both its initial royal blue design and Mike Arnold’s signature rendition from April this year, these black and silver Copa Nationales pay active homage to adidas’ transcending sportswear legacy. Fusing football-minded practicality with contemporary skate-desire, this relatively new profile is designed to supply a minimalistic aesthetic that captures the very heart of performance-orientated sportswear.
