Umbro Geometra Pro Football Boots - Black/White/Blue
The Umbro Geometra Pro is the new kid on the block when it comes to control boots. Already adopted by an array of high-profile players including Jonas Gutierrez and Jordan Henderson, Umbro's latest boot silo is making ground on its adidas and Nike counterparts.
The Geometra Pro has become a regular spot across the European leagues after becoming widely adopted by a strong field of defensive and midfield players. The new Black/White/Blue is already on the scene but officially arrives today as Umbro's latest boot. Take a look at the new Umbro Geometra Pro and share your thoughts online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
The new Black/White/BlueUmbro Geometra Pro is the third instalment of Umbro's control range this year and arguably the best yet! The distinguishing colours create an effective contrast for strong on-pitch visibility while highlighting the key areas of the boot. The soft ceramic leather at the forefoot of the boot is highlighted through blue stitching across the 'grip surface' and outside toe area.
The Umbro Geometra Pro soccer shoes feature a full grain ceramic leather, thicker than average leather to build more strength into the pass and provide more protection. Your feet are further safeguarded by the inclusion of a solid heel wrap and stabiliser to help resist those crunching tackles!
The main feature of the Umbro Geometra Pro is the ECZ - Energy Control Zone - which has been designed to absorb excess energy quicker for better ball control. The memory foam pass pad sits on the instep of the Geometra Pro and consists of high density foam. Sitting next to the ECZ are new dampening pads positioned towards the inside rear of the boot. Labelled as 'Medial Pads', the technically surfaced pads contain memory foam for enhanced ball control.
The laces built into the side of the Umbro Geometra Pro create a large striking zone and allow for a wider opening to the boot to aid comfort. Extra grip on the foot is added by a built in sock liner that hugs the foot the create the associated comfort we have come to expect from Umbro football boots.
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.
Another unique feature of the Umbro Geometra Pro is the specialist sole with a new stud configuration. The pivot zone pressure point takes inspiration from a squash shoe and allows players to make sharp turns in small areas. The design also enhances ball control, with sharper heel studs helping to lock down the planted foot.
The new Black/White/BlueUmbro Geometra Pro football boots will be available to order from 14th October. A real plus point for the Geometra's is their price, considerably lower than rival boots in the same category, set around £90 GBP / $150 USD / €100 EURO.
Expect to see more of the Black/White/Blue Umbro Geometra Pro this weekend as Umbro roll the new colourway out across their professional roster. For now, share your thoughts on the new Geometra release online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
