Designed for the boards and the streets

The Copa Nationale is another Adidas soccer-inspired sneaker that is brought to the world of concrete. However, despite being designed for the boards, it does not look like your typical skateboarding sneaker. 

The Copa Nationale can also be used for casual wear. The yellow tint details harmonize well with the royal blue upper and brown rubber sole. You can wear this with jeans or corduroy joggers or other skateboarding outfits that you are comfortable wearing while skating.

Slimmed-down silhouette of the Adidas Copa Nationale

Unlike the usual skate shoes that many people know, the Adidas Copa Nationale has a slimmed-down modernistic silhouette. It has no excess padding, which makes it look more like a cleat rather than a skate shoe.

Sole of the Copa Nationale

The sneaker comes with a Cloudfoam midsole for cushioning, shock absorption, and support, and a grip-enhanced rubber outsole for a functional and skate-friendly detail.

Adidas Copa Nationale History

Being in the industry for a long time, Adidas was able to release a number of collections like the Adidas Originals and the Adidas Skateboarding. The Adidas Skateboarding collection was founded in 1998. 

This pack focuses on improving both the look of the shoe and the feel of skateboarding through the brand’s innovative design, technology, and materials. The Adidas Originals collection inspired some of the skateboarding shoes’ silhouettes.

In the present, puffy skate shoes from the 90s are coming to light once again. However, Adidas stands out with their slimmed-down skate shoe, the Adidas Copa Nationale.

With the release of the new Copa Nationale, the Three Stripes was able to hit the sweet spot between fashion and function, and successfully sought the favor of the skaters and sneakerheads.

Premium leather and mesh material were put together to make up the shoe.
