It's another bold move from Under Armour as they look to shake up the football boot market. Accompanying the release of the unmistakeable Blue/Orange 10K Force Pro II, Under Armour are offering a toned down White/Yellow/Navy alternative – we know which one we prefer! Let us know what you think.
We've come to expect the unexpected from Under Armour following an adventurous start to their time in the boot market. Once again, the American sports giants have taken a new approach to boot design, delivering one of the years most unique football boots.
Weighing 7.7oz / 218g, the UA 10K Force Pro II (don't ask us what happened to the first one!) is a middle-weight speed boot. The weight won't be the main appeal for those looking to experience just what the 10K Force Pro II has to offer. The heel area of the 10K Force Pro II is where this boot comes to life.
The unique compfit system acts as the stand out feature on the Under Armour 10K Force Pro. Built as an innovative fit system, the compfit construction allows for a players freedom of movement while keeping the foot secure. The special ankle construction creates a snug feel to aid comfort at high speeds.
Another special feature found on the Under Armour 10K Force Pro II is the unmistakeable dimensional grid pattern across the instep of the boot. Named the “MatchControl” zone, the area maximises touch for enhanced feel when passing, dribbling and shooting.
The upper construction features a performance microfibre for optimal touch and feel with limited stretch. The Under Armour 10K Force Pro II boots also feature a perforated microfibre tongue, designed to enhance breathability and moisture management.
On the underside of the boot, the Under Armour 10K Force Pro II is a moulded 4D Foam foot-bed that forms to the foot to provide internal traction and a customised level of optimal comfort while also reducing stud pressure.
The lightweight construction of the new CoreSpeed chassis - built from a lightweight Pebax material for optimal use on all surfaces - enhances the foot's natural ability to accelerate and dart in any direction.
The new Under Armour 10K Force Pro II isn't your average football boot! They are available to pre-oder now from selected online stockists for a full release on June 20. The boots will hit shelves at around £120 GBP / $180 USD / €145 EURO.
UA are continuing to find new ways to position themselves within the boot market. Will the new UA 10K Force Pro II be able to establish itself as a genuine contender? Let us know what you think online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
