Over the past few seasons, we have some several innovative releases come from the innovators at Under Armour. This latest edition, the UA ClutchFit Force, features a performance microfiber upper that offers two-way stretch capabilities and work with the symmetrical lace system to provide an unprecedented contoured fit and feel across your foot. You might also be wondering why we labelled this post “soccer specific”. Well, that is because the ClutchFit design comes from boots produced by UA for American Football stars. This is the technology transitioning between sports.
Visually, this boot is about as unique as it gets. The blue on blue academy upper is basically the rubber overlay placed on a synthetic upper, and it features a very unusual cutout design, as you will see up close in the video. This allows for the stretch and provides the basis for the boots performance characteristics.
We will save the rest of the finite details of the Clutchfit Force for the actual review, for now we will leave you with Under Armour’s own description of their latest release.
Leveraging Under Armour’s latest form-fitting compression technology, this boot is built for the player who forces the action and makes things happen on the pitch. Slip the shoe on, pull your laces, and feel the UA ClutchFit upper wrap your foot in a “second skin” of advantages. Our latest lightweight material innovation forms to the contours of your foot, amping your joints and muscles, giving you better feel, fit, and support.
The ClutchFit Force is already available in 3 colorways on soccer.com for those interested in checking them out.
Bryan, big fan btw.
They make a UA clutchfit boot for American Football and Cam Newton version that appears to use the same upper and same soleplate, only difference is that the American football version has much more ankle support. With the superfly and the magista adding ankle fitting what do you think about using the american football version on the soccer pitch? Thanks
If they softened up the region and made it more flexible (with the use of knit material) rather than the extension of the rubber up along the ankle like Newton wears, then yes – can't see why it wouldn't be another market option!
awesome! would you be interested in trying it out? If not I can pitch in for a pair and let you know what I think!
I prob wont at this point, but if you do definitely let me know what the verdict is!
