Umbro are back once again to furnish us with yet another great colourway for their awesome-looking new football boots; the Umbro Speciali R.
In another nice contrast to the dark and classic Black/White/Amber colourway, this model looks fresh and fun, taking a classic White with Black branding base and and furnishing it with a splash of neon Lime on the sole and branding.
Seen here in Umbro’s current generation HG soleplate (first debuted on the GT Pro), the lime studs provide a great contrast to the cool finish of the rest of the boot, and compliment the sockliner really well.
It’s great to see Umbro really putting in a lot of energy into their latest football boots, as we think the Speciali R is a cleat that’s worth supporting. 3 Contrasting colourways and a eye-pleasing design will hopefully mean that there’s a real demand for – what we think – is a great bit of footwear.
The Kanga-Touch upper is hopefully comparable to the latest CTR360 II’s KangaLite (which improved on the first CTR’s in just about every way) and the excellent A-Frame cradle in the mid-foot is one of the most simple-yet-effective pieces of tech that we’ve seen in this generation of football boots!
As part of Umbro’s Spring line-up, you can expect to see these hit store shelves at the end of March, with a wallet-friendly pricetag of £85.
Next up,' we’d like to see the Speciali R in something really classic, preferably involving Black, White and a swanky splash of Gold for the detailing!
Knowing our luck, though, Umbro will resurrect the ‘Oxblood’ colourway from the last Speciali!
What do you think to this new colourway?
Hit up the comments and let us know!
anybody else think that the stitching on the toe box and the heel look too similar to the Nike Tiempo?
boot test ??
“Seen here in Umbroâ€™s current generation HG soleplate (first debuted on the GT Pro), ”
That soleplate was actually on the Speciali Statement before it was on the GT Pro.
What is up with this “synthetic-Upper” fad. I personally only try and use synthetic uppers only when really necessary. Synthetic just doesn’t compare to Kangaroo leather. I wonder if synthetic material really cost more to these manufacturers than great Kangaroo leathers. Is that why they charge SO MUCH MONEY for them? I mean its PLASTIC people!!..they should be way cheaper than your Kangaroo leathers. I think they are cheaper to make, but these companies see it as a good way to make some easy money..
they look really nice, I would like to wear umbro boots soon.
is it just me, or the speciali are looking more and more speedy??
a couple of times i’ve mistook it as the umbro GT for a second.
i don’t know if people likes this or not, but this is not very “heritage”, umbro…
Are with Geo and channo.
They are successfully morphing the Speciali into a Tiempo. More and more with each release.
Soleplate looks like the legends!!! Can’t wait for Speciali to get the praise it deserves.
