Built for speed and style, Umbro reveals their lightest boot to date for the 2010/2011 season — the new Umbro GT.
Weighing in at just 236 grams / 8.3 oz, the new Umbro GT is a significant introduction to Umbro’s boot range. After the success of the classic Speciali and the recently launched Stealth, Umbro GT is the latest in exciting boots to be released from the Umbro stable.
Built using a lightweight Japanese Teijin micro-fibre, the upper on the Umbro GT is crafted from just one piece to reduce weight, improve strength and maintain a sleek, streamlined style.
Umbro GT also features the innovative A-frame cradle, a successful feature of our classic Speciali boot, which supports the middle of the foot, providing balance and protection.
Umbro GT isn’t just a technical boot either — it looks the part as well. It’s available in two striking colourways – sharp black and lime or cool white and orange.
Overall, Umbro GT is built for the speedy, stylish player, which is why we’re delighted that Sunderland and England striker will be one of the first players to test out their capabilities at the start of the 2010/2011 season.
Bent, one of the Premiership’s leading goal scorers during 2009/2010 said: “I can’t wait to wear the new Umbro GT. Not only is the boot incredibly lightweight, which will help my speed on the pitch, it also looks good. I like to play my football with a degree of style and it is great to have footwear that reflects this.”
Coming in a black and lime green colourway along with a striking white and orange colourway, the Umbro GT will be lighting up football pitches across the globe from August.
