    WOW, you seriously just beat me to it! I have the pictures open on my computer right now and I was just searching to see if there were any threads I could post them in...and then I see you just posted this!

    The X boots certainly seems to have changed! I really liked the first prototype, and I actually don't even mind the latest prototype. That technology certainly seems different and weird...so it has to do something!

    I found them yesterday and finally got round to posting them. I like the latest prototype too. I also like the no tongue idea of the second one.

    Nice find!!!

    I'm not sure what to think of those now. I said the same thing when the first ones came out, and now I'm their biggest fan!! Time will tell....

    I'm thinking of buying a pair of the old Xboots from a kid from my school. How do the old ones feel?

    Re: New Umbro Xboots

    Yeah, the black is easily my favourite! And just look at all the leather on that boot...is there even any synthetic or plastic (ignoring the special grip and heel counter)? The Michelin sign doesn't even bother me that much.

    Re: New Umbro Xboots

    i am definitly getting these when they come out. the only thing i wonder is how the tongue will stay down. It doesn't look like theres a strap or velcro.

    Wow!

    Not pretty but it'll certainly turn heads.

    Is it just me or does the whole boot look like a sort of funky Mercurial Talaria with weird studs and a massive tongue?

    Reminds me of a Predator, Vapor, and Legend all rolled into one boot.

    If you look at the final design of the boots (in white in the first post) you can see that on the tongue the elastic strap has been tucked under. I supose that is how they'll do it.

    The new Umbro range of boots are availble on justsocca.com. They've actually also revamped their site.

    All new umbros available on soccer.com. I have to say, i like the x100 line with not foldover tongue. The black ones are nice, and since umbros x-boot line are my favorite boots, if i can ever get rid of some of my boots, i just might consider picking up a pair...just because...

    Re: New Umbro Xboots

    those arent xboots

    Umbro has a new line, the SX line, one boot is the S, one is the X which are completely separate from the xboots. which are the second pics you posted. The xboots are the first pics you posted and theyve been revamped

    Actually these are all xboots like I said.

    These are the SX boots you were talking about

    And these are the xboot destroyers (which look like the picture of the first prototype)

    Re: New Umbro Xboots

    That boot is smoking hot. But what is up with the strange 'cut-out' of the sole material on the inside of the boot, approximately where the base of the big toe is? If you go soccer.com you can see it better in some of the pictures, especially with lighter colors. What's that supposed to do? It looks like they ran out of plastic or something. But otherwise perfect.
