We could be seeing the first ever 3D-printed football boot.
It’s fair to say that the American brand haven’t really established themselves in the football boot game to date.
Despite holding sponsorship deals with Spurs and Southampton – as well as player deals with Granit Xhaka and Memphis Depay – when it comes to making boots, they seem to be trailing behind the major brands.
That being said, their new boot, the Under Armour Clutchfit 3.0 3D dressed in all black could be the one that changes all that.
Exclusive to Pro:Direct Soccer, the Clutchfit is crafted for the playmaker who likes to control the speed of the game.
We’ll be honest, a lot of effort has gone into making the boot – it features a flow-moulded 3D ClutchFit Auxetic upper (damn that’s a mouthful), that moves with the foot for optimum support and unrivalled ball control.
At present, there’s no news on whether the upper is 3D-printed or just 3D, but we’re waiting on confirmation.
In theory, the arrows on the sidewall would give you a next level first touch and would therefore make the perfect football boot for midfield players – especially those playing in central midfield.
More features include: a non-slip heel lining, charged cushioning underfoot, new innovative soleplate and conical studs for improved traction on firm grounds.
These are particularly limited, and they’re selling out fast so make sure you don’t hesitate if you’re thinking about buying them.
