Reasons to avoid

Traction could be better

scraping material

In our Umbro Velocita VI test, we particularly appreciated the lightness of this boot. Weighing in at 190g – the same as Nike Mercurial Vapors – this is one area where the Velocita VI sits comfortably alongside the best on the market. In terms of comfort, they also do the trick, with a thick, sock-like structure giving you warmth, protection and support, while allowing your feet to breathe. The laces are also made of very high quality wool.

We also love the design. The large Umbro logo is a bold middle finger for those obsessed with the latest releases from Nike and Adidas, shouting, “There’s no school like old school.”

A slight drawback was the rough material on the shaft, which does not caress the ball, but instead allows it to skim the surface. Overall it’s a great boot, though.

Umbro Tocco 2 Pro

Offering first-class grip and comfort for less

Reasons to buy


Made of K-grade leather


Micro-texture for improved feel


Designed for technical players

Reasons to avoid

base sole

Not the lightest

A boot obviously built with first contact in mind. The Umbro Tocco 2 is a huge step up from the previous installment in the Tocco series, with high-quality K-leather providing an exquisite, dry and comfortable underfoot experience without feeling heavy.

Unlike other boots that use this material, the Tocco 2’s K leather upper is covered with hundreds of tiny dots and padded with memory foam, which are essential for providing the kind of tight grip and control that can really improve a player’s performance.

Also among the cheaper options on the market, the Umbro Tocco 2 is a serious choice for gamers who want to compete on a smaller budget.
