A new week and a new set of vibrant colorways for New Balance fans to enjoy, as the Furon 3.0 and Visaro 2.0 are treated to mish-mash styles.
For the Furon, a combination of Hi Lite and Black, with Maldives Blue accents across the upper and studs, give it a pulsating look. While the Visaro has been updated with a primary Maldives Blue finish to the upper, and Hi Lite highlights on the laces soleplate and studs. It is almost like a Puma Tricks series, minus the fact both boots are different silos.
These are the first new colorways we have seen released from NB in 2018, with both already available to buy at soccer.com.
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 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.
