The latest in a long line of boots from the COPA franchise, the SENSE boasts a host of new brand innovations — like SENSEPODS, TOUCHPODS and SOFTSTUDS — all of which have been designed to deliver the ultimate on-pitch feel.
In a bid to create a boot that maximises its wearer’s potential, the design team mapped a variety of different sole shapes to understand where the foot connected most with the ball. This led to the creation of precisely-placed SENSEPODS, a new feature aimed to minimize and eliminate the negative space found around the ankle and achilles.
Impact-absorbing TOUCHPODS also make a debut and can be found on both the medial and lateral sides of the boot, while SOFTSTUDS have been injected with a softer material to bend upon impact with the ball.
In a bid to remain in-keeping with the COPA’s archetypal classic and traditional look, adidas has opted for an all-over “Core Black” colorway, atop a luxurious gold outsole. The upper features a FUSIONSKIN material for extra support, while PRIMEKINT ensures flexibility and additional protection too.
The adidas COPA SENSE is available to pre-order today from the brand’s online webstore, retailing at €280 (approximately $340 USD).
