England internationals Andy Carroll (West Ham United) and Joe Hart (Manchester City) debuted the new Umbro UX-1 football boot in Barclays Premier League action. Fiorentina and Peru winger Juan Vargas also donned the new purple colorway of the UK-based firm’s first new boot of 2014 in the Italian Serie A.
Given a soft launch to date by Umbro, the UX-1 sees the iconic soccer experts introduce a slew of new features not seen in their recent launched cleats. Here is a look at what the UX-1 has to offer courtesy of the team at Umbro along with a detailed look at the boot that Joe Hart will wear at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brasil.
We’ve got you covered. One-piece upper made from light, breathable material, tough enough for you to withstand tackles, soft enough to retain crucial feel for the ball. Seamless transition.
The perfect trap. Sleek webbing across the medial and lateral area to make sure all that work on your first touch pays off. Take control.
The balance of power. A boot with an evolved A-Frame design offering stability and security so you can put in a shift every time. Match fit.
Strong at the back. A dual density cage and a soft protective spine cushions your heel and safeguards your Achilles. Genuine backbone.
Get a grip. Ten forefoot studs spaced to reduce pressure and increase comfort. Four conical heel studs create superior traction, making it easier for you to change direction fast. Switch the play.
