Classics never die.
That’s the case with the Copa Mundial cleats who, despite a makeover with the COPA17, still are one of the best soccer cleats on the market.
Adidas seems to be digging their nod at the retro in preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
With a handful of teams who rock Adidas already repping their 2018 kits with a nod to the classics, Adidas took it a step further with the design of the new Official Match ball for the World Cup.
Named after the 1974 World Cup ball, the newest model of the Telstar will be the main attraction this summer in Russia.
This might look like the original Telstar, but with the technology built into it, this is a completely different beast.
With a 32 panel design, the new Telstar brings more of a true flight path and more consistent feel on the ball which will be helpful for players. The ball will have the same Adidas “Non-Stop Grip” application they use on their cleats, giving players a true consistent touch no matter what the weather has in store.
Adding to the technology, the new ball also has added an NFC tag. The NFC tag will connect to your phone via Bluetooth and take you to exclusiveAdidass content made just for the World Cup.
With the old school feel and the new school technology, Adidas has delivered one of its most technology-driven products to date. We can hardly contain our excitement as the World Cup is now 212 days away!
