What’s New with the Copa Pure II.3

In October 2023, adidas made the move to introduce some adjustments to the Copa Pure and aptly named the boot Copa Pure II. This included some slight tweaks to the takedown boots as well like the .3. Take a look of the launch model of Copa Pure II.3 and continue to read on to see what changed on the second-gen Copa Pure boots.

The first thing that’s immediately noticeable is the perforated-like texturing on both the lateral and the medial side of the boot. This is presumably to add some ball grip especially when dragging the ball. Especially on the lateral side, the indention pattern is also changed to perhaps accommodate the inclusion of the aforementioned texturing. Next is that the u-throat construction has been slightly deepened thereby slightly increasing the lockdown from the laces as well.

How does the Copa Pure.3 fit?

It’s not necessarily narrow or wide-fitting, but it does wrap around the foot more closely. Lengthwise, the Copse Pure.3 is true-to-size.

Which one to pick: Nike Academy Tiempo or adidas Copa Pure.3?

Between the Nike Tiempo and Copa Sense Academy boots, select the Tiempo for a more intimate fit. Choose the Copa instead if you are after a more natural leather experience.

Expert Academy Copa Reviews

We hear again from Josh of SR4U, whose experience brings an insightful perspective about what the Academy Copa Pure brings for your football boot experience.

SR4U’s on the Copa Pure.3:

  • An example of not needing to spend much to get a decent boot
  • Falls on the stiffer side of natural leather out of the box but will still soften up
  • One of the boots with a solid, padded feel for a protective purpose if you will; not bulky but does have a substantial feel
  • Ease of putting on is refreshing due to regular laced and tongue construction
  • Heel liner above average for the price point
  • Fit and quality feel so much better because the boot does not suffer from the shallow heel issues of previous takedown adidas boots
  • Soleplate is not awkwardly stiff unlike older takedown adidas options
  • Not the lightest of budget boots
  • Feels good and secure on-feet
  • A solid pair for its price range
