As if attack-minded players didn’t have enough new releases to consider this summer, Umbro have made that decision significantly harder with the release of the all-new Umbro GeoFLARE.
Aiming to combine lightweight construction with control-focused elements and a bold new look, the GeoFLARE definitely fits the bill as a boot for players who want to cause' havoc' in the opponents third of the pitch.
Umbro veterans will recognise the ‘Flare’ suffix from the SX Flare days, and just as that boot was big on daring use of new features and bold design choices, the GeoFLARE is very much a spiritual successor.
The low-profile upper is constructed from lightweight microfibre for a speed boot fit and feel.
However, the upper' features an enhanced re-ground rubber print on the toe to help control the ball in wet weather conditions
Control is pusher further by the embossed medial pass pad, created purely for enhanced ball dampening and control.
A new re-engineered lightweight insole has been developed for the GeoFLARE alongside a high visibility neon sprint plate for grip and comfort.
We’re particular fans of the boot’s design as well; the oversized Umbro Diamond that makes up the cleat’s most eye-catching feature is something we’ve not seen before from the brand, and the choice of Black / Lava Pink launch colourway is certainly a winning combo.
What do you think of Umbro’s latest?
Let us know with a comment!
looks quite awesome indeed. if it delivers on its promises, this boot will be a great competitor to the Hypervenom (which is similar to it in the sense of being attack-yet-control based) and the Nitrocharge (which shares the rubber feature). do they mention the weight of it? if not, it would be good, means we are getting away of the senseless weight race.
