New Balance Soccer today officially revealed the next step in the evolution of the Furon footwear collection in the form of the Furon 2.0 match boot. It will be avalable at Kitbag and World Soccer Shop.
Since its release last year, Furon has been seen on some of the world’s biggest stages through Valencia FC striker Álvaro Negredo, Manchester City winger Jesús Navas and Hangzhou Greentown F.C midfielder Tim Cahill. The Furon 2.0 is engineered for those who play for that single, momentous opportunity, the one chance to decide the game and define the outcome. These players thrive under immense pressure and take their opportunities. If the ball drops to a Furon player, it’s Game Over for the opposition.
The Furon 2.0 has a Bright Cherry Hybrid Mesh Upper which has been engineered for unparalleled speed, exceptional feel and a clean precision strike in all conditions. Brand new to the boot is a Galaxy Sprint Spike inspired collar, with an asymmetrical adaptive fit giving explosive acceleration and outstanding comfort.
Top Line Lacing has been introduced for a locked in and precision fit with unsurpassed comfort along with ultralight Fantom Fit Bright Cherry overlays for outstanding strength and support when needed most. Ultra-Directional Studs give unrivaled speed for those players who have to be first to the ball.
The new Furon 2.0 will hit the pitch for the first time during the final weekend of the Premier League and La Liga seasons, and will be seen on the international stage in France this summer.
Furon 2.0 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!”
