Boot Spy > Zamora in New Under Armour Football Boots



Looks like Bobby Zamora is happy with his new boots, as he continues to wear the prototype Under Armour football boots whilst on international duty with England. We've got some close-up images of what could be the new Under Armour Hydrastrike Pro II football boots, and it's not just Zamora who's a fan of the latest offering from the American brand.

Despite their relative infancy in the game, in three short years Under Armour have made huge strides in football boots development. From the early days of the Dominate and the Create, Under Armour have moved on to stronger silo's like the Hydrastrike and Blur. But it's with the Hydrastrike where UA have realised the potential and performance of leather, especially then they incorporate some of their own innovative technologies. 



But it's not the first time we've seen the prototype Under Armour football boots Bobby Zamora has been sporting. When we recently met with Tottenham defender Michael Dawson, he was wearing the same whited football boots which gave us an even closer look at the boots.



So what can we expect if these are the new Hydrastrike Pro II football boots? Well, again it looks like a predominantly leather upper with two-grades of material, we can also spy on Zamora's boot the H20i symbol which means they've undergone the waterproofing process. The lacing seems to be more asymmetrical, and continues further into the toe area for a better fit, and UA also looked to have dispensed with their conical studs in favour of tapered blades. 



If these are the new Under Armour Hydrastrike Pro II football boots, what do we think? And are we impressed with how UA are improving and emerging as a force in the game? Share your opinions with the SoccerBible community

I like it very much, its simple , something Nike and Adidas should take notes from being everything they have been making over the past 2 years has looked incredibly cheap and over the top!!!

A lot better than the silver 'cheese grater' boots (thank you Ned Ved) they released in the recent past. . .

These certainly look better than the previous Hydrastrikes. Not completely sold on the stitching pattern though.

@seanys- Last time I checked, Nike was an American brand too. But please, keep with your comments, because everyone loves to laugh at a dumb-***, and you sir, are an easy target.

If the Blurs were a 'cheese grater' then the color and texture of this boot would make it a 'ball of mozzarella'

there's something 'cheesy' about UA boots but I do like them.

i think the soleplate is still cones-front & blades-back... not all-blades as it says in the article

Still not sure about UA as a boot manufacturer yet. Not worn their boots so can't really comment on comfort but so far their designs haven't inspired me
