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!
When it came to the introductory Furon release, we were definitely one of the biggest critics of the boot. There was no natural feel and the overall composition of the material was too plastic. This latest edition has real promise, with improvements in the areas they were needed. New Balance listened to fan feedback, so we are excited to see exactly what these have to offer on pitch!
