Everyone has owned one of those knackered balls in the past. Torn up by the courts they were played on, there was usually very little left by the time you got a new one.
Equally, if you had the ball, you brought the rule. How many of us can remember the ‘not my ball mate’ follow up response when a fresh player wanted to join a game?
Naturally, there has been a technical product evolution in the world of football. Most brilliantly for us though, the relationship between football and design has been flourishing.
The stunning ‘Neo Pro’ from Umbro is testament to this.
Made up of various panels it takes the striking pink double diamond and puts it in the prime space of cool.
Eye catching whether static or spinning, this ball is beautiful from whatever angle you look at it.
Putting design along side performance, its aesthetics are as impressive. On the pitch, on court or in your studio – it is football appreciated.
In the words of the brand:
A unique 14-panel design offers a clean strike zone and true, natural flight, with the Hexadimple outer casing designed in conjunction with Teijin offers superb elasticity and a softer touch.
Often the last element to be looked at, it is the heart of the game – we can look at a thousand different boots but this is the thing we’re all trying to get in the back of the net. It is the game.
Umbro have smashed this – it’s an exciting time for the brand and this ball is symbolic of that. You can find out more and get your hands on one here.
