First launched at the beginning of 2015, the Umbro Velocita has had a refresh with the launch of two new colourways.
Umbro Velocita Pro – Blue Atoll – White Black
To recap, the Umbro Velocita is the Manchester based football brands lightweight, speed boot.
The hard ground version of this boot (as pictured) weighs in at a mere 165 grams.
We particularly liked the comfort maintained in a boot which is so light. Internal padding around the Achilles area offers a snug fit and protection whilst the external heel counter is made of tough, yet flexible Pebax material.
Also worthy of a mention is the ‘mechanical flex’ that is used in the boot material which eases the dreaded ‘break in’ of a new football boot.
We reviewed the Velocita back in February and apart from a poor maintenance score (2/5) for maintaining the boot in pristine condition, we gave it a big thumbs up;
Overall – 25/30 : If you’re keen on speed boots, do yourself a favour and don’t overlook the Velocita.
