Green and speed have always been a good match in the boot world! The colour has formed a strong association with speed boots over the years. Umbro's latest Green/Carbon/White GTII Pro colourway is another great example of this.
Umbro have never been afraid to pull out the bright colours with their GT range. Nearly every colour you can imagine has found itself onto the boot in recent seasons. Of each design, we'd have to rank this as one of the best yet!
As one of the best value boots in the game, the Umbro GT II Pro has developed quite a following. They're certainly a nod to the earlier generation of speed boots, when the Vapor III and f50 Tunit ruled the market. As well as their bold approach to colour and design, perhaps this has been one of the reasons behind their steady success.
The Umbro GT II Pro features a lightweight Japanese micro-fibre upper that provides both softness and strength, with asymmetric concealed lacing for a greater striking surface. Converts to the Umbro GT were quick to compliment the boots great fit - a focus Umbro have looked to further improve with the GT II Pro football boots.
The upper is coated with a print application for enhanced ball touch, and ably assisted by ridged lines radiating from the toe area out through the Umbro logo. The surface of the GT II Pro generates additional friction for boot-to-ball contact and control in wet conditions.
The Umbro GT II Pro comes with a lightweight sole plate that is built to give improved grip and traction giving you an extra boost when you're skipping away from defenders. The Green/Carbon/White Umbro GT II Pro will be available in both SG and FG stud configurations, with the FG blades hollowed out to further lighten the load.
Built on a newly developed anatomical last, the Umbro GT II Pro soccer cleats are designed to offer the player a better fit, while the removable sock-line with Poron Performances inserts complete the feeling of comfort we've come to expect from Umbro.
If you want to pick yourself up a pair, the Green/Carbon/White Umbro GT II Pro football boots are available to pre-order now ahead of an October 15th launch and will retail worldwide for around £90 GBP / €110 EURO / $140 USD.
