Looking throwback but at the same time absolutely fresh, the 'Eternal Class' Mundials are making us pray for a time when Sunday League football is back on again. Might just wear them in the garden, to be fair.
Mirroring the the recent Predator Accelerator update, Adidas have drained all colour but added a lot of fair to another one of their classic boots for another limited-edition release.
It's based on the original 1982 World Cup Mundials but with an all-new silver chrome soleplate. The iconic three-stripe design is still visible, but in 'Core Grey' rather than the bright white of the 1980s.
There is a also shorter tongue, which may upset Mundial purists, but certainly doesn't spoil the look.
The 'Eternal Class' is - as you might've guessed - new takes on iconic boots. And the Copa Mundial might be the most famous of all the Adidas boots.
The Copa Mundial (Spanish for 'World Cup') was first released in 1979, giving it a nice, lengthy lead-in to the 1982 tournament held in Spain.
It was a massive hit on arrival and has since been worn by some of the world's greatest players including (deep breath): Zinedine Zidane, Diego Maradona, Franz Beckenbauer, David Beckham, Lothar Matthaus, Frank Lampard, Gary Lineker and Eric Cantona.
Oh, and Gary Neville.

Since 2001, Copa Mundial has reportedly been the world's best-selling range of football boots. It's a pleasure to see the 'Eternal Class' doing sweet justice to the legend.
