Umbro provided seven artists with the opportunity to recreate their countries football crest and now they are giving the same chance to budding designers everywhere. In their line, the World Champions Collection, the company tasked the creators to come up with a unique idea for their homeland’s football crest in celebration of this summer of soccer.
Last year Umbro arranged the Customise Your Speciali contest and manufactured boots featuring user-generated designs for Premier League’s players. Now the brand is arranging another competition. This time the new winning images will be seen on the soles of the boots worn by John Terry, Deco, Wilson Palacios and Pepe at World Cup slated for this summer.
The footwear brand Umbro named the winners of its creative contest Speciali Competition and has already made boots with the artistic soles. There were over 10,000 submitted designs to be chosen from and the brand picked out the most incredible and bold ones. The jury of a team of footballers, designers and boot specialists selected only 15 winners from the creative avalanche. The contest deadline was October 1, 2009 and now we can enjoy the results.
