To help bolster the re-launch of the Speciali Eternal, Umbro have roped in Real Madrid’s (seemingly reformed) hatchet man Pepe to regale us with the story of his first ever pair of football boots – a pair of trusty Specialis.
In the following video, Pepe chats with his father about the struggles and hardships he went through to support his son’s dream of making it as a pro. Anyone allergic to emotions would be advised to stay well clear…
Here’s a few shots of the achingly gorgeous new Umbro Speciali boot, which looks an awful lot like the old Umbro Speciali boot – which isn’t a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination!
Beautiful. They’ve even got the wishbone and everything! Marvellous.
Forget your neon pink exo-skin technology, hyper lacing systems and laser-etched adamantium blades. That’s how all football boots should look, forever.
