Who should buy the Adidas Copa 17.2 Firm Ground

The Adidas Copa 17.2 features premium Taurus leather in the forefoot area, which offers a snug fit. It also ensures minimal water uptake. Just like the full-grain leather found in the durable Adidas Samba Classic, Taurus leather is also built to last. This may be one of the reasons you'd get this pair. Additionally, this could be a solid option for you if:

  • You're looking for a soccer cleat that features a flexible soleplate that moves comfortably along with the movement of the foot. Perfect design for an active player on the field.
  • You're a follower of the Copa Mundial and would want a  budget-friendly version.

Upper construction of Copa 17.1 Firm Ground

The full-grain calfskin leather in the forefoot area is a little bit thicker than kangaroo leather but comes pretty close where softness is concerned. It also stretches and follows the shape of the foot with continued use. The leather acts as a padding when shooting and dribbling the ball. It holds up in all weather conditions as well.

The Adidas Copa 17.2 also uses a synthetic leather-like material in the midfoot area. It provides a certain amount of stiffness that does not translate to a good overall feel of the ball.
