Much to the dismay of every football purist who insists that the slightest splash of colour will tear down everything 'the beautiful game' stands for, football boots are now a bona fide style accessory. Gone are the days of the dull, all-black boot that would look more in place at a funeral procession than on the pitch, in are the days of bright colours and sleek designs. Who said you needed feet like Messi to stand out on the pitch?
Now, New Balance are aiming to destroy the opposition with deadly precision with their new limited edition packs for the Furon v6 and Tekela v3 boots. The NB Football Rise and Reign pack features the Furon v6 in a gorgeous Black, Chromatic Yellow and Neo Flame colourway and the Tekela v3 in a White, Chromatic Yellow and Neo Flame colourway, which New Balance say are aimed at “the artists of the game, who strive to perform with daring creativity.”
The Furon v6 is all about zero distractions and lethal precision with an adaptive, lightweight fit weave stretch upper with life-long shape retention for that ultimate feel, every single game. It has a hyper-lock lacing system and collar package, as well as targeted, data driven support zones for minimal weight and incredible responsiveness.
The Tekela v3, the playmakers’ boot, is all about fearless audacity and inspired artistry with its full foot stretch-knit upper with integrated Hypoknit, laceless closure for secure lock-down, delivering unrivalled confidence. It also includes redesigned, algorithm-driven kinetic stitch technology that delivers high-resolution touch and graduated strike zones for ultimate control and contact accuracy and multi-directional stud configuration, deployed on lightweight nylon outsole for incredible feel and feedback.
Set for release on June 16, the New Balance Football Rise and Reign Pack will be available worldwide from selected retailers and online in the UK at www.newbalance.co.uk/football.
