A fantastic breakdown from Footy Boots gives you a comprehensive look into Umbro’s recent Speciali III release. A boot heavy in tradition, Umbro has gone a slightly different approach to modernize its icon. For generations of Speciali wearers, the absence of kangaroo leather is perhaps the biggest change. In its place is a synthetic dubbed “Kanga-touch” that hopes to mimic its properties and offer the same level of touch and fit.
Another element is a considered approach to reducing the weight which enables the Speciali to really push the boundaries of so-called heritage boots and offer a sleek, lightweight package. I won’t spoil too much but watch the review for a full look into the Special III.
