Declan Rice’s Football Boots

Dean Ariola

Declan Rice is an adidas player who wears the Copa Pure boots. The silo is now on its second version, and the main draw is the Fusionskin technology. Fusionskin gives the best of both knit and leather by seamlessly combining the forefoot material of the latter to the midfoot upper comprised of the former. His technical abilities are complimented by the soft touch coming from the premium leather and the comfort provided by the overall package.

50th Cap Copa Pure 2

No other Frank Lampard introduced adidas’ custom boots for Declan Rice in recognition of his 50th cap. The boots were predominantly white and had accents on the stripes and on the trim on the heel. The left boot had red for the secondary colour and blue for the right, getting the inspiration for the accent detailing from the British flag.

Copa Pure II+ Solar Energy

When adidas introduced the Solar Energy Pack in January 2024, Rice wore the Copa Pure 2+ of the collection, sporting that Ivory white main colourway that was designed with black adidas stripes and pinkish red accents. Safe to say at this point, Rice had worn both the .1 and the + of the second Copa Pure adidas boot.

Copa Pure II.1 Marinerush

As adidas introduced an updated Copa Pure in the blue Marinerush pack, Rice stepped up to represent the Copa Pure II.1. Because the + model was no longer laceless, the Copa Pure II that Rice chose to wear was the one that had a standard tongue construction. The inclusion of the tongue enabled Rice and anyone who chose the Pure II.1 to get more adjustability in terms of fit and lockdown.

Declan Rice and Boots

Declan Rice was born on the 14th of January 1999 in Kingston upon Thames, Greater London. He spent his youth football first in the Chelsea Academy, but upon his release he moved to West Ham’s in 2013. Rice became one of those players that was able to graduate from the Academy and transitioned to being a regular started for the first team of the same club. Declan Rice plays primarily as a defensive midfielder-good on tackle and also excels in bringing the ball forward from the deep. He joined the Arteta-led Arsenal in 2023 to boost the Gunners’ title push and secure one for himself.

Early on, it was evident that Rice favoured leather boots. He had always wore the modern Copa model like the 18s and 19s and cycled through the different colourways of the said Copa generations. But prior to the contemporary Copas, he also had a stint in wearing the Nike Tiempo Legend 7. Perhaps the lessening of the leather sensation in the Tiempo 8 forced the player to switch to the adidas alternative.
