A Look At The Design Of The Adidas Football COPA 19

Adidas Senior Footwear Designer, Arnau Sanjuán recently shared a look into the initial design of Adidas’ latest football boot, the COPA 19, that he designed in collaboration with fellow adi designer, Andrew Turner.

The new COPA 19+ features a selection of elements designed to maximise fit, touch and movement. In terms of fit the internal construction, featuring foam pads and an ortholite sockliner, provides cushioning and comfort. The Sockfit collar is engineered to naturally expand to foot shape to ensure supportive fit while an anatomical upper mimics a barefoot experience.

The new Fusion Skin is an evolution of the COPA’s classic leather treatment that features a seamless and less permeable skin, re-defining touch for a football boot. The K Leather itself is super soft, providing optimal comfort and touch. The X Ray Vamp brings the foot closer to the ball and reduces slippage. The Purecutlaceless upper remove unneeded layers to maximise ball control area.

The design of the COPA 19+ is also engineered to maximise movement. The Exoframe stabilises movement and enhances traction. The two footshape inlays allow optimal cushioning. The stud positioning and shape have been designed to optimize rotation. (via Arnau)
