American company, Under Armour, have just released their latest football boot, the Under Armor 10K Force Pro II.
Since Under Armour have yet to create a boot that has taken the market by storm they are hoping that the release of the intriguing 10K Force Pro II will propel them towards the top of the football boot market. Dubbed as “endurance meeting power” Under Armour have taken some aspects of a running shoe, namely the foot forming cushioning and have combined them with the traction and precision of a typical football boot.
The Force Pro II has a number of unique features including Under Armour’s CompFit system. CompFit is meant to keep a players foot secure while allowing for freedom of movement. We’ve heard that Under Armour boots in the past, most notably the Blur have had a weird fit to them so hopefully the CompFit system will have alleviated those problems.
The diamond grid pattern on the upper, called Match Control has been designed to improve a players touch and their accuracy while on the ball, while the pebax soleplate, called CoreSpeed has been designed to be ultra flexible and enhance the foots natural ability to accelerate.
UA have released three colourways of the Force Pro II all of which will surely stand out on the pitch. Weight wise, the Force Pro II come in at 7.7 oz and are the lightest boot Under Armour have ever made. The Force Pro II have a retail price of $197 although some sites are selling them for cheaper already.
We’re intrigued to see whether Under Armour have created a quality boot in the from of the Force Pro II so we’ll try our best to get our hands on a pair for review. In the meantime, are you liking the look of these boots? Leave your impressions in the section below.
