Umbro launch Velocita Alchemist

Umbro launch Velocita Alchemist

The Velocita Alchemist brings seemingly unsustainable top speeds to players and real sustainability too boot production. 

With a long history of industry and brand firsts since 1924, Umbro are proud to introduce another: ProWeave, a patented world-first woven technology, exclusively available to Umbro for the use in Football boots.

This unique weaving method from Texon gives Velocita Alchemist boots new levels of elasticity and stability in a single layer upper made partially from recycled polyester yarns. No additional post-weave treatments typically used in conventional boot manufacture are needed, leading to lighter and 35% more sustainable boot. The Velocita Alchemist has low impact on the planet, but high impact on the pitch.

Built for players that play at their own pace and create chances out of nothing, ProWeave delivers the ultimate adaptive fit - it’s like a second skin with more raw speed and sure-footed stability.

TPU yarns and a biomimicked bee-wing structure makes the single layer upper strong without sacrificing a millimetre of multi-zonal stretch. The yarns also provide a grippy feel for total ball control. With a full water-resistant finish, bad weather won’t slow players down.

On the bottom of the boot, a Pebax Powered® Sprint+ outsole brings multidirectional agility, while the stud geometry distributes pressure evenly for strong traction and a comfortable change of pace and direction. It's the boot that let's players make magic on the pitch and lets them control the twists and turns of time itself.
