The expanding 'control' boots category now boasts another addition to its impressive range! Umbro have officially announced the release of the new Umbro Geometra Pro football boots – a visually and technologically impressive boot that focuses on ultimate control. Taking design inspirations from other 'control' boots on the market – most noticeably the Nike CTR360 – the new White/Red Umbro Geometra Pro football boots are packed with new features designed to improve your control of the ball. Take a look and share your thoughts with the SoccerBible community online, on Facebook and on Twitter.The success and popularity of the relatively new 'control' category - kick-started by the Nike CTR360 - has created a battle zone for brands all looking to be top-dog in the world of 'control' football boots. So much so that adidas have repositioned the new adiPower Predator as a control boot! It's become a fierce area of the market, but Umbro feel they now have a genuine contender in the shape of the Umbro Geometra Pro!
The new Umbro Geometra Pro soccer shoes arrive fully equipped with a high grade kangaroo leather upper for a superb fit and feel for the ball. The soft leather upper acts as the foundation for new technological innovations designed to improve your ball control. Umbro know where their strengths lie and have utilised the same leather upper featured on the legendary Speciali range. One of the main features introduced for the new Umbro Geometra football boots is the ECZ – Energy Control Zone – which has been designed to absorb excess energy quicker for better ball control. The ECZ sits on the instep of the Geometra Pro and is made up of high-density foam. At SoccerBible we had early access to an Umbro Geometra Pro prototype. Our friends at Umbro have since confirmed that the ECZ strips will be a darker grey – not the red colour featured above in our exclusive images and others circulating the web! A white Umbro Diamond logo will also feature on the dampening pads. Another key feature is the swerve coated 'grip surface' visible on the inside toe-area of the Umbro Geometra Pro. This material is technically applied to the Geometra vamp to allow an improved ball feel in wet and dry conditions whilst offering better distribution abilities.Sitting next to the ECZ are new dampening pads positioned towards the inside rear of the boot. Labelled as 'Tejian Medial Pads', the technically surfaced pads contain memory foam for enhanced ball control. The combination of the ECZ and the Tejian Medial Pads draw clear design inspirations from Nike's winning formula used in the CTR360 boots. Visually the new Umbro Geometra Pro football boots offer a streamlined look with clean design features. The soft k-leather white upper with red detailing provides a classic Umbro look that we've previously seen on Speciali colour-ways. Expect to see a brighter follow up to the White/Red Umbro Geometra Pro soon!The sole-plate used on the new Umbro Geometra Pro might be recognisable to some! Another clear CTR360 inspiration, the Geometra Pro outsole has been designed to enhance ball trap control with its carefully considered stud positions. Without compromising traction, stability or durability, the Umbro Geometra Pro outsole effectively enhances ball control. The sharper heel studs combine to help lock down the planted foot while the other controls the ball. The new White/Red Umbro Geometra Pro football boots will be available to order from early July with prices impressivley set around £90 GBP / $150 USD / €100 EURO.Now you've had a look at the brand new Umbro Geometra Pro soccer shoes, are you a fan?

wooowww....great shoe for jhon terry!!!
Great boot! I love the design with the suede!
Well, they look...interesting. Personally, I think Umbro are trying too hard with this one.
oh very nice but i like the stealth studs much more
really cool, but maybe to similar to the ctr360
the wrod umbro at the back ruined the boot for me :(
Nice cleats.. and only €100!!
very nice pair of boots from umbro... again!!
Looks like a solid boot for the money. Actual lace holes in the shoe would be better opposed to the fabric ones built on the inside, but whatever. . .
effin ugly. umbro has not come up with one single good boot ever, except the specialis and the firsth generation of the stealth. these are just some cheap copy of ctrl360.
good design + k leather + good price $ = GOOD BOOT
it all adds up with simple math u cant argue with that!
Umbro keep getting better!
CTR360's are better in my opinion but these are much cheaper...Nice!
very very nice
Lawkjaw. but these look nice with the black outsole
looks promising. very reasonable price. but I would still opt for the predators.
These are pretty decent looking althogh i have to say i am really feeling the red on the instep!
Decent price too!
the boot is cool,but i hate umbro is always copying boots,these boots are the same as ctr´s. umbro boot makers don´t have their own ideas
forget the ctr360 , im my opinion these are exactly like the predator powerswerve just without the tongue , especially on the instep
best umbro boots ive ever seen
Umbro copy nike because they are owned by nike.
Basically the Nike CTR in K-leather and with a cheaper price tag. What's there not to love!?
is it just me or does the instep look a tiny bit like the instep from the powerswerve??
The more i look at these the more i like them.
Think of all the different color combinations u could apply to this boot. I've never worn umbro but theres a first time for everything. I love the ctrs so if these perform similar i just might switch. SB please do a playtest on these!
Umbro just keeps suprising nice new boot
Look from above like Adizero, Rear view like CTR, Cleat like Superfly. EPIC!!!!!
wow very suprising,love them
I'm really impressed, these look awesome.
I love the colorway.....nice
Nike fanatics: k-leather is still better than kanga-lite
These are actually quite nice surprisingly.
nice boots and 90 pounds?! that's awesome. adidas and nike set their pricing standard too high. this umbro is just great, though im not an umbro fan :/
Look like golf shoes = turd!
VERY CLASSY. I SERIOUSLY LIKE THESE. Well done Umbro. I'm impressed.
if the official colorway is the one being shown in the other article... it just became dull. blacking out the red ECZ was a mistake...
... umbro really needs to step up with their design. nike isn't helping very much. same with adidas for reebok.
These are nice too bad they are not keeping the red instep
never liked umbro boots...a total copy of ctrs with the outside control area and the instep as well as the circular stud pattern...but i guess nike owns umbro so...
Nice sole plate!
i think they're horrible :(
Pretty boots I'd say....^^
similar to ctrs
does anyone know that nike BUYumbro??
This remind us umbro is the cheaper line of nike!!
getsome carbon fiber for those
i have heard from other sources and sights that this pair of boot will cost and set you back £130, knew £90 was too good to be true... honestly. come on. they are owned by nike now. not Mizuno (;
these seem like they would perform very well. The sole plates nice and k leathers a big plus. These are great boots and you're really getting your moneys worth with it only costing $150. The only thing that sucks is that theyre ugly as hell. if these were decent looking i would definitely consider buying.

WOW, I haven't owned a pair of Umbro boots for a while now. looks like that's set to change :)
does it come with a bag?
like it :)
I've tried & compared this boot with NIKE CTR360 Maestri II... In my opinion, both of the boots gave almost the same comfortable & ball-control, but this UMBRO Geometra Pro gave a 'lil extra comfortable in the control & changing direction suddenly on the real game. CTR360 Maestri can provide with more various colour, but if U wanna the best control boot with the best price, I think U can consider this boot for...
