Cool, dark and handsome, Umbro’s Velocita goes into stealth mode.
Colourful football boots have played first fiddle for a while now, but there is a trend now for blackout boots which brands are jumping on.
One of the best blackout examples we have seen in a long while is the Umbro Velocita. In pure black glory, the Velocita looks dark, moody and ready for action.
In terms of performance, for those who need a reminder: The Umbro Velocita is a lightweight, supportive boot and is surprisingly comfortable for a boot in its category.
Weighing in at a mere 165 grams, Umbro make a point of highlighting that comfort was not a casualty when they went ‘light’.
The 1mm thick upper is made of micro-fibre with a heat welded A-Frame locked in to help keep your mid foot anchored.
The one piece soleplate was designed to help stability. The stud configuration uses the popular blend of conical studs under the ball of the foot for ease of rotation, whilst the heel and lateral side of the boot are treated to diamond-shaped blades for stability when cutting and planting.
Blackout, old school fans will be made up with this stealth like offering from Umbro.
