As part 3 of the Top Football Boots of the World Cup series, here is the Umbro X Boot II.
Based in Manchester, England Umbro have released the X Boot II, to be featured at the World Cup.
Performance: The Umbro X Boot II uses ultra soft, water resistant kangaroo leather uppers to give ultimate ball feel for a sensitive touch and sweetspot shooting. Also for clean striking of the ball , the X boot II has a leather flip tongue with a Velcro, elasticated positioning band.
Comfort: The X Boot II uses X Static technology, silver fibres in the football boot to help regulate the temperature and has the, now common amongst high end football boots, external heel counter.
Players: Micheal Owen will be wearing these football boots at the World Cup.
Price: RRP £100 available from £80.
Verdict: A good solid all round boot. Although I’m not too keen on the design. Well priced for the top end market.
Heh, I like it’s X design. Oh there’s a new version of this boots for WC btw.
My father just purchased a pair of the X boot 1 for me for the upcoming season. I will get them within the next week or so and I will update you guys with my thoughts on the boot…
Thanks Sanchez, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the football boots.
Rubbish, that is the only thinkg I can say!
ya adizeros are way better then these man any adidas is better then these shoe right
I have had 2 pairs of the X boot.
This one and the KTK version just prior to this one.
All I can say is that besides Predators and Copas Umbro have got it SO right with the shape of this boot and its materials.
I have to tell u all that these are THE MOST comfortable boots I have ever worn in my footballing career spanning 19 yrs!
I only hope they continue to make models that fit as snug as these ones.
The only thing I can think of inprovement on is the actual inner sole, its a bit too thin and tends to wear out towards the seasons end.
Where can I find a pair of the Umbro X Boot II-A KTK FG’s in a size 10 US?? I know they’re an older model, but they’re so damn comfortable!
