A young kids, we mistakenly held the belief that Umbro gear was only available to those playing competitive level soccer, so when a friend handed down a pair of their iconic blue shorts, we were far more grateful than necessary. Still, they were magnificent things, and we are definitely seeing shades of said magnificence in the venerable brand’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection for Harlem FC, a community organization that seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of youngsters with “the world’s game”as a guide.
“Umbro’s celebrated tailoring principles have produced a range that will look great on the new generation of players and supporters coming into the club,” we are told. “A percentage of all sales generated will directly benefit F.C. Harlem in support of its various soccer programs.” Available online, even to those who do not play competitively.
