After months of seeing the New Balance football boots edge ever closer to release, we’re delighted to finally introduce the boot NB has styled for the ‘Players Who Take Chances’.
New Balance Furon
The Furon football boot has been designed for players who are in the right place at the right time ready to ‘Take Chances’ and secure victory. Okay hands up, that’s marketing speak. The Furon is the boot aimed at the quick, attacking player. All of its features are channeled in this direction and there are a lot of features. Buckle up…..
New Balance say the Furon is for the player who can burst into a space; ghosting past markers and who is first to the ball every time.
The Furon has been designed with a high energy return upper for explosive release velocity combined with a stiffened soleplate for exceptional energy return and unparalleled acceleration.
An addition is an ultra-directional stud design built into the boot for unrivalled straight-line speed.
Furon players receive outstanding strength and support from the ultralight Fantom Fit cage. A Fixed Revlite insock provides superior cushioning and a pro-form last gives unsurpassed feel and unbelievable comfort.
New Balance say wearers of the Furon boot will show no mercy, they react first to define the match outcome. They’ll score from nowhere and everywhere with deadly accuracy; striking cleanly and quickly.
The New Balance R&D team have worked hand-in-hand with New Balance pro-players, using elite athlete specific data to create the boot design. The two designs give players of all abilities a boot that feels customised to suit their game.
Global Head of New Balance Football Richard Wright spoke with pride at the release of New Balance’s first boot range: “Over 90 minutes, players cover more ground than ever before and the distances run in football far exceeds that of any other sport. We have a very strong heritage in running and applying this expert knowledge to the endurance and high intensity of football.”
“We recognise that the modern game is powered by attacking football. Therefore, we have developed two styles of boots for attack-minded players. The players that ‘Make Chances’ and the players that ‘Take Chances’. We believe these boots will meet the player’s performance demands and amplify their unique set of skills – not only just at the top level of the game but at every level of football.”
