Home / Product Reviews / Umbro GT Pro Sky Blue with White Fade Review


Well the new Umbro GT Pro is out, and the color way is stunning. The sky blue fading to white look amazing on the boot, and even better against the green grass of the pitch. Since being bought by Nike, Umbro have gone through a lot of changes, both in terms of kits and shoes. You can really see the Nike influence in these boots.

If nothing else, the bright colors and fading cutting edge design should let you know Nike got a look in on the development of these boots. Also, the shoe features the Teijin leather upper, which is apparently Japanese, and forms to fit your foot after you break them in. For my part, I picked up a pair because at $140 USD, you can’t get a better quality pair at that price, and my Vapors had split more or less in half so I need some new ones. I was pretty surprised when I finally got them on and played in them.

I’ve never been a believer in Umbro cleats, and for the record I think the new jersey fabric is atrocious, but these boots may have converted me, They have the A-frame technology that Umbro pioneered years ago, meaning the boot really locks your heel into the hell cup and gives you great traction and sure footing. The problem I always with Umbro was the long studs they used in conjunction with the A-frame meant it was easy to roll your ankle, but thank to the new bladed cleats on these GT Pro’s that no longer an issue.

I also found the touch on the ball was great in these shoes as the Teijin leather makes them play like a pair of Superflys. They may not have flywire, but the A-frame serves the same purpose with only a bit more weight. Granted at 243 grams they aren’t going to stand up against an Adizero Prime or v. 1.10, but they’ll also provide better protection for your foot. Its a pretty competitive market out there right now, but if they keep making boots that perform and look like this one, I’d look for Umbro to become a big player in the future.
