The second colorway in the Umbro GT2 Pro has been released and this one continues Umbro’s attempts to capture the attention of the market with outlandish designs! The official colorway is a Black/White/Acid Green, with the colors blending together in a very unusual fashion throughout. The black area also looks like it has some green running through it to double up the virtuoso effect! I am interested to see exactly how these look in person.
In terms of retail, they hit the market close to the $150 mark, but you can currently find them for around $120.
Having seen plenty of success with the initial GT Pro release, the 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 a review) will tell!
These boots have just hit soccer.com with a retail price of $150, which is exactly what we had expected when we heard about the boots release several weeks ago.
