For any or all of you who played soccer growing up—and, like myself, there are probably a lot of you out there—there's a good chance you know about adidas' Copa Mundial's, which are, arguably, the most classic boot the company has ever made.

Simplistic in design and performance, the cleat consisted of three, white adidas stripes on both sides, sitting on top of a leather upper boot, a folded-down tongue and a white, plastic bottom with black cleats.

Following its debut in 1978 for the World Cup—in which that fellow above, former Argentine international star Mario Kempes, wore during his tournament-winning goal against Holland in the final—the Copa Mundial remained part of soccer's fashion for nearly 40 years.

And it just got a reboot (pun intended), with adidas unveiling an updated design.

Carrying a price tag of about $185 (£149.95), the newest Cope Mundial's, known as the "Copa 17.1," are a fresh new take on the most classic soccer boot adidas has ever made.
