Umbro have been stepping up their five-a-side and futsal ranges recently, most probably because for many amateur footballers the eleven-a-side season is drawing to a close. Here's a look at the latest addition to the Vs range, these stylish Umbro Aurora football trainers.
When the season finishes many of us will move onto the indoor, five-a-side and futsal pitches, and it seems Umbro have made it their mission to style players in apparel and gear that can be worn both off and on the pitch.
It seems the small-sided game is becoming a more and more specialised market, and the Umbro Aurora futsal shoes are a prime example. Featuring a host of synthetic materials, with a unique construction, the Aurora is a lightweight and breathable performance shoe.
The perforated vamp provides ventilation for the feet, both through the comfortable insock and also through the toe area. The toe area is constructed using a synthetic material which offers great friction and touch with the ball and is further enhanced with a micro texture.
For performance the Aurora features a Gum Rubber outsole to provide traction, grip and crucially ball touch, which all helps assist the speed of play for the small-sided game. Again Umbro are going for brand recognition, much like with the Stealth II football boots, by placing a large logo on the side of the Aurora football trainers, which is sure to receive a mixed reaction.
The Umbro Aurora V's futsal trainers are available to order now, and are expected to retail for around £35 GBP / $55 USD / €45 EURO. Now you've had a full and exclusive look at the new Umbro
Aurora's, we'd love to hear your opinions...
