A while back, I had the opportunity to test out the new Under Armour Blur Pro in the Metallic Silver/Velocity/Black colorway. Well, recently I also managed to get my hands on the Black/Volt colorway and figured they were worth highlighting. The Black upper matched with Volt detailing is modern and very slick. They are a great option for players who need an updated boot with a pretty contemporary look, and I personally like them a lot!
Under Armour have made huge strides on the market over the past two seasons, and seem to be headed in the right direction with the boots they are producing. The Blur Pro is a boot designed for speed and acceleration, with a streamlined look and a pretty nifty 8.6oz weight. This boot is light, offers solid comfort and a specifically designed stud configuration that attracts player attention. If you like the design and are on the market for a boot that offers something a little different, look no further! In terms of player position, I highly recommend them as an option for wingers and quick forwards, while playmakers might also want to give them a test run.
And, if you are looking to change up your look, simply swap out the laces, as below. It easily makes for a completely different all round visual appearance!
One thing that is extremely important with these boots is sizing. The Under Armour Blur definitely fits slightly tighter than your regular boot and sort of mimics a Puma fit. After testing out the initial size 9US in a jogging session, I quickly realized that I would need a half size up. You also won’t get much stretch out of the microfiber upper. Unless you normally fit small in your size, I advise going up a half size.
Price wise, they retail for $200, but you can pick up a pair for around $120 at the moment.
