The Shoe Surgeon's interpretation of the adidas Copa Mundial is nothing short of a work of art. Reworked and reshaped with a stunning BOOST midsole and transparent D Rose 7 gum sole. It's football, basketball and street merged into an ultra-limited edition super-silouhette.
Yeah, you read that right. This ain't no concept, this son of a gun is real. It's happening. Albeit in the most minimal of minimal numbers – just 25 pairs of the adidas Copa Mundial Boost will land on the Shoe Surgeon’s online store on Friday 14 April, so good luck with that. Chunky vibes in the smoothest of rides, it's a collaboration of styles that rocks retro feels from toe to heel.
When you're messing around with a product that boasts the title of being the world's best-selling football boot, with over 10 million pairs sold over the course of its 25 years, you've gotta be pretty damn sure you're doing things right. The Shoe Surgeon has nailed it, no question about that. With a reputation as the godfather of shoe customisation, that doesn't come as much of a surprise.
The luxurious leather upper and trademark fold over tongue from the famed Copa Mundial football boot is retained in original condition, carefully dissected from it's cleated base and reattached to a BOOST midsole that sits on another surprise package in the D Rose 7 basketball gum sole. And you know what? It works like an absolute dream. Not sure how... but it just does. Accept and embrace it. Oh yeah, did we mention they'll be $595?
25 pairs. Shoe Surgeon’s online store. Friday 14 April. Good luck... You'll need it.
