With Manchester City kicking off in the Community Shield on Sunday, the 2012/13 season will be underway, with Joe Hart sure to be playing a big part in between the sticks. With a new season, comes new kits, new soccer cleats – and new goalkeeper gloves. Sunday’s game will see the Umbro Neo Pro goalkeeper gloves make their debut, and they’ll be worn by top keepers such as Joe Hart and Jack Butland throughout the new soccer season.
The Umbro Neo Pro DPS gloves are also going to be on sale from the Umbro website from this Sunday, for any aspiring keepers wanting to grab our finest gloves for their own games this season.
Crafted from a lightweight, tight fitting neoprene fabric,
the Neo Pro gloves also feature a breathable structured mesh fabric on the
fingers, keeping a goalkeeper’s most important assets comfortable in all
The DPS in the Neo Pro gloves stands for Digit Protection System, an additional layer of rigid protection for your fingers inserted into the main body of the gloves. With a structured punch-zone on the back of the gloves adding extra protection and increased distance for your clearances, the Neo Pro gloves also feature an extended palm zone which makes it easier for keepers to gather the ball and then turn defence into attack as quickly as possible.
In a classically smart white and royal blue colourway, the
Neo Pro DPS keep your hands secure and let your soccer do the talking.
