They’re just starting to hit the shelves now, the new speed/control football boot from Umbro – the Stealth Pro.
Umbro Stealth Pro – Silver / Black colourway
The Umbro brand is enjoying something of a resurgence of late. Boot-wise, they are aggressively marketing the Speciali, whilst Umbro received plenty of plaudits for the latest England kit, for both the design and the reveal.
So what can we expect from the Stealth Pro?
The World Cup colourway – Silver / Black / Orange – Expected May 2010
The Science of Speed
It’s claimed by Umbro that the development off the new Stealth series has been the most accurate and expensive of a football boot ever!
In return Umbro reports that they have come up with a football boot which is faster than any other and one that has delivered better testing results (both laboratory and by Premier League players) than any of it’s predecessors.
These impressive results centre around protection, shock absorption, cushioning, traction plus the correct and best feel and touch!
By the looks of things, Umbro have created a hybrid of the Speed and Control Categories – but with an added focus on protection – get your head around that combination!
Umbro Stealth Pro – Red / Navy colourway
The Stealth Pro’s upper does have some very interesting tech: Microfibre air pockets are inside the synthetic leather upper which, as you can imagine, makes the boot lighter.
The Stealth Pro also features a carbon fibre shank and a hefty external heel counter.
Support- external heel foxing+ carbon protection.
Pro Fit- memory foam in tongue body moulds to top of foot for snug fit and hard tackle protection.
1. Structural support.
2. Chassis holds the foot in the best possible biomechanical position.
3. Carbon shank for biomechanical midfoot support.
4. Cosmetic film graphic.
5. An extra layer of cushioning to protect the delicate players foot.
The Umbro Stealth Pro in it’s World Cup Cup colourway of Silver / Black / Orange will be arriving soon.

Ohhhhhhhh, Im Keen.
Really Keen. =]
I’m not so keen. this looks cheap to me, not like a top end boot that cost the earth to make.
I think Umbro focused to much on the tech specs and forgot about the design.
Dunno what you guys are seeing, I think this looks great, original and tidy.
and dont forget this is a rough pic, they look good. well done umbro..
I dont like the look of the new adidas true strike, so I will look into these.
what a boot but I have seen it in the norwegian catalog there plenty more details and they will sell it for 90 euros
what a football boot absolutley great .
It’s for 90 euros and they’re gonna release 5 colours and one of them is white/red /silver
Seems to me like all boot companies are really putting it in with their new models.
I think these Umbro Stealth boots look the business.
Is it me, or are all boots getting better and better?
“ItĂÂ˘Ă˘â€šÂ¬Ă˘â€žÂ˘s claimed by Umbro that the development off the new Stealth series has been the most accurate and expensive of a football boot ever!”
Meaning expect to pay $300 for them. If that is in fact the case, they won’t sell many.
They look great.
It looks like robots where these.
They look very plastic-y if thats the word. Anyways I haven’t worn Umbros since I was 9. Don’t see why I would start now..
But, when I need a new pair of boots I’ll definitely keep my options open.
I can see Umbro being a victim of the credit crunch soon. It will start with loss of Jobs which may be a good thing, they might finally get rid of the awful designers!
I really dont like these. All Umbro boots are in the shadow of Nike and Adidas. Umbro need to up the design quality. If I turned up in those no one would take any notice. Much prefer Vapors or Lasers
sorry but it doesn’t appeal to me.Too much is made of protection from Metatarsal injury upto say 10 years ago no-one had heard of them.
they look rubbish, just plastic and boring!
I’m getting mixed feelings about these . . .
Will need more pics and tech specs b4 I can give an opinion . . .
they dont look good, but if they are going to be for may 2010 they will look better .
They kinda look like an older version of a predator mixed with a puma construct 2 with the weight of mayb a vapor 4.. Mayb. but in my opinion a nice boot overall, hopefully everything being said about this boot is true nd I might consider spending a dime or 2 on them.
the silver ones are class. not to fond of the red ones, though
I used them already and they’re not that bad. They have a good touch and are comfortable. They’re not as light as they could be though, but this was like 2 months ago so they probably bettered them now.
im gonna pick me up a pair of those
Fantastic fit and feeling,feels almost like a leather boot. Much better then Merc Vapor, F-50 or V.1.08 they are all to thin in the upper material, they feels like a plastic bag!
Look for the white/red version, launch in march.
cheap and uncorfortable, and nike take his hands on this boot, the laces remind me the maestris
at Ăâ€šĂ‚ÂŁ90 they seam to be a bargin
Though i have never worn umbros for out doors, i have had them for turf. They were quite comfortable and i am going to expect the same from these. Overall for the looks of them the silver/black/orange colorway looks nice but the red/navy/black not so much. overall 8 out of 10
I get discounted umbro boots and over the last 3 years or so i have had a full range. the ultra – sx, x-boot I,II and III, speciali and the new sx.
the earlies boots were by far the best. these boots look cheap, they should of used k-leather and the boots would be less shiny and look more classy.
i am a black boot kinda guy and look forward to the release of a black pair.
yes they look cheap because of the photo’s. I’ve seen much better pics, check out soccer.com for example. The red boots look really good
Why can’t I get a pair of BLACK boots anymore? Too much to ask???
Best boots by far, sahme its giggs thats wearing them though
These boots are AMAZING!!! They have great touch and power and they are super comfortable. Buy these!!!
vei com essa chuteira eu fiz muitos gol !!!
nossa nao tem chuteira melhor !!!!
ela e muito boa pode compra porque
ela e boa ela e bonita e com fortavel
I’m a defender and have these boots and theyÂ aren’t really working for me.Â
much better than nike or adidasÂ and these pics make them look terrible but in real life there great looking boots
