The all-new Umbro UX-1 2014 is a soccer booth that features uppers lined with Armor-Tex, an extremely strong material which is normally used for safety materials and fishing lines. Armor-Tex is claimed to be 40% stronger than Kevlar and ten times stronger than steel. Despite its strength, the shoe's one-piece Armor-Tex upper is breathable as well as waterproof.

The Umbro UX-1 shoe is targeted towards players who like boots that are a bit on the heavy side, as it weighs 280 grams. The frontal area of the boot features rubber elements that allow better touch and control, while the outsole is designed to offer solid traction on firm grounds.

The colorway of the shoe is predominantly a rich purple, with Umbro's famous double-diamond logo located on the upper.
