Lovell Soccer Review the Under Armour Hydrastrike Pro II FG Football Boot Black/Dark Lime
Under Armour don’t deal with the ordinary when it comes to speed and performance, with the Under Armour Hydrastike II FG Football Boot a simple yet imposing offering.
Although Under Armour boots have not really made an impact in the professional game yet, they are becoming increasingly popular amongst ametuer players as their boots offer something a bit different to the other big brands.
The purpose of the Hydrastrike Pro II is to offer a boot that focuses on player comfort and performance. It does this by working with the natural mechanics of the foot to allow for a quick change in direction and unpredictable turn of pace to get past opposition defenders.
Across the upper, the soft k-leather forefoot features Under Armour’s patented H20i water intelligence technology. The result is a fit that immediately feels comfortable from the toe to heel whilst protecting your feet from wet conditions.
Across the heel area, a performance synthetic delivers enhanced stability and combines with the upper leather for all-round performance at any level.
For optimum fit, the die-cut 4DFoam foot bed forms to the foot to provide maximum comfort whilst increasing stability and shock absorption.
The bottom layer of the foot bed uses Under Armour’s MicroG™, a revolutionary light and low cushioning innovation providing additional support and responsiveness.
The all-important outsole sees the introduction of Under Armour’s Corespeed plate, engineered for natural firm surfaces. It is designed to offer superb traction when making rapid movements around field.
Created from lightweight TPU, this design enhances the foot’s natural ability to accelerate with the flexibility to manoeuvre in any direction and keep up with the fast paced game. A combination of shorter moulded studs across the forefoot, for speed and acceleration, combine with longer blades on the heel to deliver power where you need it most.
Designed for an imposing look, the sides and toe see a black touch whilst the heel and tongue are a softer charcoal offering. As an added touch, these Hydrastrike football boots come complete with black and lime laces to create a bespoke look depending on your playing mood.
