Umbro Tocco Pro FG - Black/White/Blue
FG - Firm Ground
Run the game with poise and control wearing Umbro Tocco Pro FG football boots in Black/White/Blue, featuring a water-resistant K-leather upper for a pristine first touch in any conditions.
Designed for playmakers, the Umbro Tocco Pro FG allows complete mastery of the ball and keeps you comfortable for the full 90 minutes and beyond. Its super-soft “IDRO” K-leather upper features D3O technology to efficiently distribute impact forces, enhancing your touch when controlling the ball and delivering a clean strike as you show your range of passing. The upper’s also highly water-resistant, reducing water uptake by 75% so your touch stays perfect whatever the weather. For comfort, the Tocco Pro boasts a layer of Memory Foam beneath the leather, which adapts to your foot to provide a personalised fit. At the rearfoot, an engineered knit collar with heat-welded support zones combines with an internal heel counter to ensure maximum stability and security around the ankle. Leather with lockdown – boots don’t get more comfortable than this. The soleplate is designed to help you glide around the pitch from first minute to last. Its dual-density Pebax construction and stud geometry are focused on providing energy return and endurance, while a new version of the classic “Wishbone” support structure keeps your boots in sync with the natural flexion of your foot. If you’re the kind of player who gets through serious yardage during a game, you’ll come into your own wearing the Tocco.

Firm GroundBoots with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is firm underfoot but may be slightly wet. Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot. FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn. FG boots are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction. FG boots used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
Soft GroundSoft Ground (SG) soleplates are specifically designed for use on wet and soft to very soft natural grass pitches that may also be muddy and/or waterlogged. Used worldwide, mainly during winter months, boots made for soft ground have removable, replaceable screw-in studs that can be plastic, entirely metal or metal-tipped and typically come in a six-stud configuration (4 at the forefoot, 2 slightly longer at the heel). Screw-in studs must be checked and tightened before use as during manufacture they are machine-inserted and may be loose.
TurfTurf (also called Astro Turf) is an older, more unforgiving type of synthetic-grass surface consisting of either sand or water-based carpet typically laid on concrete. Subsequently a harder and faster surface, boots for use on turf (TF) usually have a cushioned midsole and a very durable, flat, multi-lugged or dimpled rubber outsole because turf requires light stud penetration. Owing to the hard nature of the surface and the friction it creates, no other outsole type should be used on turf and will result in considerable wear to the studs and soleplate edges and may result in injury.
Artificial GrassArtificial Grass surfaces (also known as an all-weather surface) typically consist of 3G (rubber crumb) or 4G (longer pile, combination of rubber/sand infill, more closely resembling actual grass). Fifth generation artificial grass is yet to be widely used. Boots made for AG are specifically designed, usually with less nylon to increase durability for the extra abrasion associated with synthetic grass and feature more numerous and densely concentrated studs. They may also vary in height for improved traction and/or hollowed-out to reduce weight and enhance cushioning. AG boots can also be used on firm ground (FG), though performance will depend on how dry and firm it is.
StreetStreet typically describes pitches or surfaces that are often found in inner-city residential areas. They consist of varying hard surfaces such as tarmac, paved or concreted hard-court areas and are often contained by a 'cage' constructed of steel or wire netting. Shoes for play on Street (ST) pitches will have an outsole made of extra hard-wearing rubber with a multi-lugged traction pattern similar in appearance to turf shoes. They also usually have midsole cushioning for shock absorption and comfort and are equipped with extended rubber toe bumpers to cope with scuffing.
IndoorIndoor surfaces for small-sided games such as 5-a-side and Futsal are usually flat, extremely hard and unforgiving and typically consist of varnished wood, linoleum or a smooth, painted synthetic or composite material. For grip, indoor outsoles (IN) are usually flat to maximise ground contact and slick in appearance with a minimal, non-aggressive traction pattern or grooves for flex and to dissipate surface moisture. They typically use non-marking moulded gum rubber and usually have midsole cushioning for shock absorption and comfort. Indoor shoes cannot be used on abrasive street surfaces such as concrete or gravel as they will quickly wear out.
