A new, very full-flavored version of the Umbro GT2 Pro has been released, and I don’t think there has been another boot released with a look like it! To be honest, we are starting to become familiar with Umbro releasing rather in your face colorways, and this Prism Violet/Vapor Blues/Summer Green joins the list of funky releases.If you are looking for a boot that truly stands out, these are a prime candidate.
Retail wise, they hit the market at a mid-range point of $149.99, leaving them at a much more affordable price point than other top tier speed boots on the market.
Having seen plenty of success with the initial GT Pro release, this upgraded version comes in at a lighter weight thanks in part to a Japanese micro-fiber upper. Picking up on a Nike strategy, Umbro has also trimmed the FG version even further by including hollowed out blades.
In fact, at 8.8oz this is the lightest boot Umbro has ever released! The subtle asymmetric, partially concealed lacing provides a larger strike zone. There has been plenty of hype behind this release, with plenty of initial reports comparing them to some of the best speed boots on the market – only time (and an upcoming review) will tell!
