Features of the Adidas Copa 18.3 Firm Ground

If there’s one thing that the Adidas Copa line is known for, it’s its ability to give comfort to players on the pitch. The Adidas Copa 18.3 Firm Ground soccer cleat is no different. Sporting a cow leather vamp, the material brings softness and comfort to its players. An embossed texture can also be found in the upper to further promote ball control.

Keeping the classic look that the Adidas Copa collection is known for, this model sports a fold-over tongue which carries an air of a traditional soccer cleat. To complete the iconic appeal, a central lacing system is also integrated into the upper to help further the soccer cleat’s fit.

The heel counter is a foam-based material which adds to the shoe’s level of comfort.

The outsole of this firm ground version is created with a Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material which is an unsurprising element in soccer cleats. This material is well-known for being lightweight, flexible, and for its shock absorbing qualities. The stud configuration consists of a total of eleven conical studs.
