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?
