Voting closed, and 10 finalists were selected on November 5th 2009!!
There is a great competition involving designing a soccer cleat going on over at Umbro. Umbro is giving aspiring designers, or creative soccer players, the opportunity to design the soles of the Umbro Speciali. 11 lucky winners will have their personalized cleats created as a one off for them, with the judges for the competition being John Terry, Michael Owen, Gael Clichy, visual artist Stuart Semple. Owen, Terry and Clichy will then pick one of the winning designs to actually wear in a Premier League game! Creating the cleats is really easy, and it takes less than 5 minutes to upload.
If you are going to create a pair, take some time to create a design rather tan just jumping in. From my point of view, keeping the design light and not too flashy is the way to go. After looking through around 20 pages of designs, the one of the right is the one I am picking to be one of the cleats selected. It gets right to the point! If you have a favorite, or decide to enter a design let us know so we can vote for you! If you want a pair of Speciali’s, but are not an up and coming soccer cleat designer, you will have buy yourself a pair!
