Umbro have been around within football for decades and are most notably attached towards the England National team being their main and National Sponsor. Going back a decade or so and Umbro used to be one of the leaders in football boots with the likes of Michael Owen and Alan Shearer tearing up defences all over the world. But after the Michael Owen and Alan Shearer era, Umbro seemed to be pushed to the fringes of Football Boots!
Well, following on from the HUGE success and IMPACT the Umbro Speciali created first time around comes the latest range from the Umbro lines. The Umbro Speciali 2009. If you watched England defeat Croatia to reach the World Cup Finals at the start of September, you wouldn have found it hard to miss the launch of this legendary boot. It was everywhere!!!!
Many will say that these style of boots are for the old school and old school boot lovers but there but the new speciali’s combine both old style with new technology to bring the arguably the very best from UMBRO so far!
Worn by Chelsea & England captain John Terry, the umbro speciali combine subtle leather with a micro-porous sockliner for supreme comfort while the fast flex toe technology brings forward the technology side of things. The Wembley archway has been added to the laces to not just addd style but add more support to the boot and the foot while playing, it seems Umbro have done their homework.
The Umbro Speciali seem to be the defenders choice with John Terry flying the flag but the technology side of the boot can add and enhance the game of any positioned player anywhere on the pitch. So, if you want comfort, support and a touch of old style boot, you may need to consider the Speciali’s!
