Umbro have stepped in to support an event organised by LAFA (Latin American Footballers’ Alliance) in the UK and auction off a pair of one-of-a-kind football boots to raise funds for Chapecoense after last year’s terrible tragedy.
Being also Chapecoense’s jersey supplier, Umbro are presenting this Velocita incarnation with a matte-gold soleplate and bright red collar, being created by Graffia Studio that applied black to the centre and tongue area.
Accordingly, the sides of the special-edition Umbro Velocita feature lots of green, Chapecoense logos and “Forca Chape” writings, alongside the iconic Double Diamond. Chapecoense hope these unique football boots will help families of the victims and survivors, and also fund more rebuilding of the Brazilian club.
