For many, if not all, boot fans it's about looking good in your footwear and making a statement on the pitch, and these new Hummel Old School football boots certainly do that. Like a cool street trainer, these new White/Green Hummel football boots have a great look and tell you something about the player wearing them.
Amongst the ultra-fast, lightweight and high-powered football boots currently occupying the market, Hummel is one of the brands forging a niche with leather boots focused on quality and style.
As the name 'Old School' suggests, there is a retro feel about these new Hummel football boots,
and they can be sure to count on the support of some of the older boot
fans. That said, they're designed to compete in the modern game with
materials and construction to do so.
Instantly recognisable across the globe, the trademark chevrons are iconic of a brand steeped in history within
football. The Hummel Old School Star series celebrates everything we
fondly remember about Hummel - but with modern materials, craftsmanship
The Old School Star soccer cleats
are constructed from a thin, lightweight high grade Kangaroo Leather to
offer a genuine glove-like fit once on. The great stretch properties
and high tear resistance of the supple leather give a comfortable
feel and outstanding ball control and touch.
It's not all 'old school' design though, as there's some technology to talk about for the Old School Star football shoe.
Hummel have incorporated a "Durable Flexsol technology" to the mid sole
area and added an anatomically moulded cushioning sockliner for more
comfort. Whilst an A TR injected internal heel counter and a soft
leather lining only add to this feeling of comfort and stability.
A classic traditional styled lightweight moulded stud outsole certainly
compliments the retro look. Again the chevron logos feature here,
running the length of the sole and following the natural arch of a foot.
The look is completed with the professional-standard fold over tongue,
covering the centred laces cleanly and stylishly. Interestingly, Hummel
have opted to use their text logo over their iconic bumblebee logo which
is omitted completely from this boot, but of course the distinctive
double chevrons adorn the instep and outstep.
It's a sign of how football boots have developed that we now look upon
the release of a traditional leather football boot as quite a novelty.
But if you're considering your style on pitch, and want a consistent
performer then you don't need to look too much further than the Hummel Old School Star football boots.
Expected to hit selected retailers from early December, the White/Green Hummel Old School Star football boots are on pre-order now from selected retailers at a great price, as they should only cost around £70 GBP / $85 USD / €80 EURO.
