Umbro has developed some very cool looking new shoes that are very lightweight. They remind you a lot of Nike soccer shoes, which makes perfect sense since Nike bought Umbro a few years ago. The shoe comes in two different colorways, black with lime green trim, and then white with orange trim. It looks like Umbro is again going to be a soccer brand to be reckoned with in the years to come.
Sunderland’s Darren Bent, who the English national team could have used this summer in South Africa, will wear the Umbro GT this next English Premier League season. Here are some of the features of the shoes:
UPPER: Thermoplastic Urethane upper with Umbro’s new A-Frame Cradle for support. Optimized and reengineered Italian last makes up the boot’s foundation.
The boot has a new Teijin Japanese Micro Fiber upper that improves touch while decreasing the weight.
Short Perforated tongue creates a larger, cleaner striking surface. The boot has perforations on the sock liner, collar and tongue for cooling airflow.
TPU Medial Toe Strike zone increases touch, accuracy and control in all conditions.
OUTSOLE: Anatomically positioned forefoot cleats for optimal acceleration and traction. The GT Pro has a light insole board that’s rigid and strong. Anatomically placed forefoot flex grooves on the outsole provide flexibility.
WEIGHT: (8.3 oz.)
Darren said: “I can’t wait to wear the new Umbro GT. Not only is the boot incredibly lightweight, which will help my speed on the pitch, it also looks good. I like to play my football with a degree of style and it is great to have footwear that reflects this."
