Hummel Looks to Merge Retro With a Bit of Technology

Danish soccer brand Hummel has not exactly been a brand steeped in performance innovation. Sticking to what they know best in classics, the new Rapid X Blade is perhaps a step in the performance direction as they contribute their own speed boot. Aesthetically, you can’t help but notice the rather bland and ’70s esque stylings of the boot and the colorway range that will have Dutch fans dancing with joy.

But within the guts lie a recycled stretchless synthetic, a Cage Construction heel counter for a lock down fit and Friction Lock liner for a tight and stern fit. The boots are in many ways the essence of old meets new providing old school players with new school tricks.
