Always Speciali

The winner of countless competitions. A scorer of thousands of goals. An icon of the game. The Speciali is not only an elite boot, it epitomises the DNA of Umbro and the fundamentals we pride ourselves on — craft, style, fit and comfort.  

Made in Italy before launching globally in 1992, it was the first speed boot to hit the market. Today, over 30 years later, it still remains the archetype for the silo in our industry. A manifestation of our deep, rich understanding of the game, it oozes class, stature, and quality. It truly has earned its place in the history books. 

From the start, its instant popularity with the pros turned it into a dressing-room phenomenon. Players couldn’t believe how well the lightweight revolution fit — so perfect, many of them still choose to wear Speciali for free rather than endorse their rivals. 

And it’s certainly paid them back. 

From wonderkids slaloming through the defence — and hearts — of Argentinians in St. Etienne to banana freekicks which defy all sense of physics, the Speciali has consistently lived up to its name. It even sits pretty atop the Premier League’s all-time top scorers, contributing the vast majority of a certain number 9’s overall tally. 

These are just a handful of special Speciali moments. Cameos of brilliance from men with the Umbro diamond on the soles of their shoes, and the world at their feet.
