New Balance let Aaron Ramsey get all creative with his brand new Visaro 2.0.
The Visaro made its debut on pitch in early 2015 after being used in beta for several months in a ‘black out’ prototype, it made a quick impact. Now a regular on the Premier League scene, thanks to the likes of Aaron Ramsey, New Balance have worked with ‘Rambo’ to create this incredible Limited Edition version.
With only 100 made and available to fans, we take a closer look at the design and what it means. The boot, coated in the colours of his teams, holds a unique design which the gunners midfielder has taken inspiration from his tattoo on his left leg, which pays homage to his heritage.
The bold red New Balance logo sits firmly on top of the halftone design, reflecting the colours of Arsenal and Wales. Taking a closer look at the unique design, we see Saint Michael the Archangel wrapped around the lateral side of the boot, symbolising strength, power and leadership, all the qualities that Ramsey has.
Flipping the boot round, we see the rising sun over Caerphilly Castle sitting on the medial side of the boot, a place where Aaron Ramsey grew up.
The soleplate is coated in a striking, shiny metallic plating, completing the boot design. Created for the Arsenal midfielder, these boots will only be available in sizes UK 8.5 (US 8.75)
General manager of New Balance Football Richard Wright said:
Aaron is a key member of the New Balance family and it’s been a real pleasure to design this boot alongside him. The team have created a stunning looking boot that is inspired by Aaron’s homeland and his beliefs, and we think fans and collectors will love this addition to the Visaro range. We’re all really excited to see Aaron wear these on the pitch.
Speaking to NB Football about his brand new boots, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey said:
“I’ve really loved the opportunity to work with the New Balance team to design these boots. Every time I step on the pitch I feel proud to play for my club and my country, so to get to show this pride through my boots has meant a great deal to me. I can’t wait to play in them.”
The overall design of these boots, with all the meaningful details, proves that no matter how big of a football star you become, you never forget where it all started.
