If you have become a fan of the Furon 3.0 or Visaro 2.0 silos, New Balance has released a new limited edition Conduction Pack. Taking copper as its inspiration, the pack represents the transference of electrical energy with minimal loss of power, giving players that extra spark on the pitch.
“From the conductor at the heart of midfield who cannot miss a beat to the striker who has to maximize every devastating touch; no energy is wasted on the pitch.”
In terms of design, the Furon 3.0 is listed as having a North Sea Blue upper colorway, with Copper Metallic detailing throughout. New Balance has taken a very modern approach with the upper on the Furon 3.0, by using a lightweight and very pliable TPU/Polyester mesh upper. It is so much softer than prior models and offers more explosive power and ball feel. Technically speaking, the Furon offers players a Fantom Fit, where a selective melt process helps form fused areas on the boot for increased durability, structure and support around the foot. Having worn the silo in games, and I can tell you that is comes together really well.
Again, this is definitely the best New Balance release to date, and shows the progress they are making to create something players want to wear.
The Visaro 2.0 features a Copper Metallic upper colorway, detailed with North Sea Blue. This is the type of design you are going to love or hate, and it seems to look very different depending on the image you see of them. With movement, passing accuracy and game changing creativity, Visaro players influence the game everywhere, all the time. The new version of Visaro features data driven Hexaprene “control and strike” zones, an athlete inspired pro form last, and one piece form fitting moccasin construction that delivers ultra-precise long and short passing, and game changing invention. I’d also label them as somewhat of a power boot, using added elements through the upper to enhance striking.
One of the first things you learn about the Visaro 2.0 is that they really not designed to fit every foot type. If you have read our review, you will know I’m really not a big fan. But, then their are players who really enjoy the fit and more importantly, have upped their game because of what New Balance has to offer.
