The recently released Under Armour Blur is now available in a more colorful colorway. By colorful, this Capri/Fusion/White is just down right bright and it sends a very bold statement from Under Armour. Having kept their initial Blur releases simple, UA is stepping it up by taking a risk with this release.
I have to admit, the mix of light-hearted colors used has some appeal! And although it won’t match everybody’s style, I can see a section of the market taking to this release. I personally won’t be pushing for a pair, but I most certainly won’t be criticizing players that opt in favor of the colorway. And by the way, how about these boots with the Seattle Sounders kit?
Under Armour are promoting the Blur Pro as more than just a speed boot. In fact, their emphasis is more on comfort and performance (cutting, turning, changing direction) than their creation of a lightweight option. UA have introduced Micro G cushioning and 4D foam to help the 8.60z boot form to the shape of your foot. The Blur Pro is available for $180, but if you are looking for a more economical alternative, UA have released a more economical version of the Blur that comes it at $90.
Sick, and not in a good way
It's like a wannabe Mercurial. I mean look at the design! Bright color big UA logo on front little logo on side, and the stud placement is very identical. Not trying to diss Under Armor but they should be a little more creative.
So going to get these and see what Under Armour are all about. I tried on the Dominates at a soccer shop and they are extremely comfortable. Would love to try these as they look wider than the Creates. Great improvement from their first two speed boot installments. It looks much more practical and streamlined and I think that if Under Armour continues this trend of improvement, they will be a big name in the next few years. They already have Wearers such as Bobby Zamora and Danny Murphy played some spells in them. Keep up the great work.
Some of these color combinations these days are just going to far. The shoe looks like a kids toy.
I've heard mixed reviews from players who have worn UA boots. They seem very much like a work in progress.
