GIMME THE BALL: UMBRO LAUNCHES NEW SPEED BOOT FOR WHEN YOU CAN GET BACK ON THE PITCH
8th April, 2021, Manchester, UK
With different countries in different levels of lockdown, the near future remains uncertain for amateur players around the world. But one thing’s for sure: you all miss football.
Not just the game itself – the ball at your feet, the dives, the deflections, the over-the-top celebrations – but everything else from the tiny changing rooms to the camaraderie to the culture of the game.
When you are finally allowed back on the pitch, you’ll probably be out of shape and well off the pace, so we’re launching a new speed boot to help you put your best foot forward whenever the next season of play starts: Velocita 6.
Velocita 6 is our flagship speed boot, with every design decision made to showcase your raw acceleration and natural agility. Combining the super lightweight PEBAX Sprint+ outsole with a unique stud geometry gives you all the speed potential you need to make tracks and beat offside traps with pace, power and poise.
The thermo-bonded V-Frame supports your foot posture for multi-directional agility to dodge tackles and make quick changes of pace that create space.
Last but not least, vent knit adaptive fit technology will keep your foot in its natural position even at top speed. Your legs & lungs might get tired, but your feet never will.
Our launch campaign, #GimmeTheBall, is inspired by the voice of the players. After a long time away from the game and wearing our new boots, you’ll rightly be demanding the ball. See you on the pitch. Soon.
Velocita 6 is available now in Peacock Pink/Black now.
