Under Armour were something of a surprise entry into the boot market last year.
And from there, Under Armour seemed to have a flourish. Their boots quickly gained a reputation for maximum comfort, and some interesting bits of technology, and their key wearer in the UK – Bobby Zamora – had the season of his life in the Dominate Pro‘s!
So, fast forward 12 months and Under Armour are ready to release the Create Pro II.
Starting off in two fantastically summer-y colourways: Flash Green/Black/White and White/Black/St. Tropez the Create Pro II is a little more simplistic that the very distinctive original Create Pro.
In fact, it’s so understated we very nearly missed the boot being given it’s debut this past weekend by United States Men’s National Team defender Clarence Goodson in a friendly against Turkey!
New features of the Create Pro II Include:
— Lightweight Rove nica microfiber is perforated for superior moisture management and breathability.
— Heatgear lining provides additional moisture control to keep your foot comfortable.
— MPZ (modular protection zone) technology delivers on-foot protection so you can tackle, shoot and attack with confidence.
— ArmourForm moulds to the foot, provides optimal comfort and reduces cleat pressure. This anti-microbial footbed increases stability and adds shock absortion.
— ArmourBound responsive EVA added on top of the lasting board to provide additional cushioning.
— A lateral extension of the outsole that enhances the foot’s ability to remain on the chassis of the outsole for quicker bursts of speed.
— Weight: 9.9 oz
What we love most about the Under Armour Create Pro II is what is represents: It’s great to see a brand like Under Armour branch out into the boot market and sell enough units to make a second generation of football boots!
As for the boot itself – it sounds like Under Armour have once again placed a strong focus on Comfort and Player protection one again, which is always a great place to start.
The boot is available for Pre-Order in the US right now, looking to ship in the first half of June.
As for the rest of the World, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we get more information!
