British football brand Umbro is back with a new flagship football boot ahead of this year’s FIFA World Cup. Debuting in a hard-to-miss purple and fluorescent yellow, the UX-1 boasts a list of features designed to make the boot light, fast, stable, and protective. It features a one-piece upper with textured overlays across the forefoot for greater control of the ball. Around the heel is a molded cage and heel counter to protect the achilles and underfoot is a hard plate to protect against metatarsal injuries. Ten forefoot studs and four heel studs offer greater distribution of pressure and added grip for wet and slippery conditions. First seen on Premier League players Joe Hart and Andy Carroll, expect to see more of these boots on the pitch later this year. Find out more at Umbro.
