Game On or Game Over – New Balance introduce a new Furon boot
New Balance Football today officially revealed the next step in the evolution of the Furon footwear collection and a brand new colourway for the popular Visaro boot silo.
Since its release last year, Furon has been seen on some of the world’s biggest stages through Valencia FC striker Álvaro Negredo, Manchester City winger Jesús Navas and Hangzhou Greentown F.C midfielder Tim Cahill. This first update of Furon is engineered for those who play for the single, momentous opportunity, the one chance to decide the game and define the outcome. These players thrive under immense pressure and take their opportunity. If the ball drops to a Furon player, it’s Game Over for the opposition.
The second version of Furon has a Bright Cherry Hybrid Mesh Upper which has been engineered for unparalleled speed, exceptional feel and a clean precision strike in all conditions. Brand new to the boot is a Galaxy Sprint Spike inspired Collar, with an asymmetric adaptive fit giving explosive acceleration and outstanding comfort.
Top Line Lacing has been introduced for a locked in and precision fit with unsurpassed comfort along with an ultralight Fantom Fit Bright Cherry overlay for outstanding strength and support when needed most. Ultra-Directional Studs give unrivaled straight-line speed for those players who have to be first to the ball.
The new Furon will hit the pitch for the first time during the final weekend of the Premier League and La Liga seasons, and will be seen on the international stage in France this summer.
Furon striker and prolific goal scorer Álvaro Negredo said, “I really like the new Furon. New Balance has taken on feedback about the original boot, retaining the best parts but introducing changes that have a big impact. It is extremely light and with the improved support and comfort, holds my foot comfortably when I change direction and hit top speed. I also think it looks great!”
Complimenting this release is a colour-up for the popular Visaro worn by Aaron Ramsey, Samir Nasri, Marouane Fellaini, Fernando Reges, Joe Ledley and Massimo Luongo. Visaro players take to the field for one reason – to create. It does not matter who the opposition is or what the score is, they keep challenging the defence and creating opportunities. They know when the whistle blows – it is Game On.
The boot still boasts the same groundbreaking technology with the Vari-zone Ariaprene® upper for incredible ball manipulation and the Low Pressure Zone Instep for instant control now both coloured in Galaxy along with the Bright Cherry Super-Flex soleplate for exceptional ground contact and the Firefly Medial Pivot zone for supremely quick turns.
General Manager of New Balance Football Richard Wright said, “We’ve been working with our pro-players to develop the Furon boot and we’re really proud of this updated version. The Top Line Lacing and Hybrid Mesh Upper are great adaptations, which we know footballers will really appreciate. The Sprint Spike inspired Collar gives the boot a fresh and modern look.
“Coupled with the Visaro in its new colours, we’re confident our range of football boots will give attacking players the ability and confidence to take on the pressures of the modern game meaning its Game Over for the opposition. We know that both Furon 2.0 and Visaro will make a big impact on the pitch in France during the summer.”
