The leather-based boot is limited to a run of 2,000 pairs, and has been made at the New Balance factory in Cumbria, in the North West of England. The release comes as New Balance announces the opening of a professional development facility for its sponsored footballers at the Flimby factory. The facility allows New Balance to work even more closely with their pro players like Aaron Ramsey and Álvaro Negredo to shape their future boot designs and developments.

 

The MiUK ONE is for discerning players who appreciate craftsmanship and who celebrate quality, both in playing style and kit. Evoking heritage New Balance boot styles, the leather upper and faux flip leather tongue bring a light but strong material finish designed to perform in the modern game. This complements the incorporation of the Visaro Pro outsole, which adds to the key performance elements of the boot. The design incorporates a padded insert in the tongue and removable cushioned footbed for unsurpassed comfort. A ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ silver logo and silver Union Jack give the boot its exclusive look.

General Manager of New Balance Football Richard Wright said, “The MiUK ONE is a testament to where we have come from and where we want to be as we continue to grow in the football sector. It has been great to work with our professional development team at Flimby, who have over 30 years of experience of manufacturing high quality footwear in the UK. Everyone at New Balance is extremely proud of the MiUK ONE and I am sure it will prove to be extremely popular amongst boot collectors and players alike.”

NB_Licence_Sevilla_Away_Kit_2016-17_12Sht_A

 

New Balance has officially revealed the 2016/17 Sevilla FC away kit. The kit has been launched as part of the ‘Miedo a Nada’ (Fear Nothing) campaign for the 2016/17 season, which gives insight into the Club’s fearless approach to the new season and desire to reach the pinnacle of La Liga and to compete in Europe.

 

 

The kit has been developed using NB Dry technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players cool and dry whilst wicking sweat from the body, making it fast drying. Laser cut and bonded eyelets placed to the under arms coupled with engineered mesh panels to the side seams aid airflow around the body.

 

Richard Wright, General Manager of New Balance Football said: “We’ve worked very closely with Sevilla FC to develop a range of kits this season which are innovative but also stylish. We’re really excited to see the fan reaction to this away kit, and see it on the pitch in the new season.”

 

Pompeian Red has been chosen as the dominant colour for the away kit – with the design reversed to mirror the home kit – with white flashes, highlighting the cuffs, tracing the shoulders and for framing the fold-over collar and button placket. The kit is finished off with Pompeian Red shorts and socks. The socks have white tipping details finished with white club SFC branding.

 

The goalkeeper kit is constructed with engineered NB Flex fabric panels for range of movement. These Flex zones are called out by contrast heat transfers. The away goalkeeper kit features a Thunder grey body with black and citrus shoulder detailing.

 

Sevilla midfielder Vitolo said: “All the team really like this kit. When we play away matches we want to feel confident that we can intimidate the opposition and this bold design will help us to do that. We’re excited to wear this in the new season.”

 

The New Balance Sevilla FC 2016/17 away kit is on sale from www.newbalance.com/football and www.newbalance.co.uk/football and in New Balance stores worldwide from 30th June 2016.

‘Game On’ or ‘Game Over’ – New Balance Football releases new Furon boot for attacking players!

 

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. This first update of Furon is engineered for those who play for the single, momentous opportunity, the one chance to decide the game and define the outcome. These players thrive under immense pressure and take their opportunity. If the ball drops to a Furon player, it’s Game Over for the opposition.

 

The second version of Furon 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 asymmetric adaptive fit giving explosive acceleration and outstanding comfort.

MSFURFCG_1

 

Top Line Lacing has been introduced for a locked in and precision fit with unsurpassed comfort along with an ultralight Fantom Fit Bright Cherry overlay for outstanding strength and support when needed most.  Ultra-Directional Studs give unrivaled straight-line speed for those players who have to be first to the ball.

 

The new Furon 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 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!”

Complimenting this release is a colour-up for the popular Visaro worn by Aaron Ramsey, Samir Nasri, Marouane Fellaini, Fernando Reges, Joe Ledley and Massimo Luongo. Visaro players take to the field for one reason – to create. It does not matter who the opposition is or what the score is, they keep challenging the defence and creating opportunities. They know when the whistle blows – it is Game On.

The boot still boasts the same groundbreaking technology with the Vari-zone Ariaprene® upper for incredible ball manipulation and the Low Pressure Zone Instep for instant control now both coloured in Galaxy along with the Bright Cherry Super-Flex soleplate for exceptional ground contact and the Firefly Medial Pivot zone for supremely quick turns.

 

General Manager of New Balance Football Richard Wright said, “We’ve been working with our pro-players to develop the Furon boot and we’re really proud of this updated version. The Top Line Lacing and Hybrid Mesh Upper are great adaptations, which we know footballers will really appreciate. The Sprint Spike inspired Collar gives the boot a fresh and modern look.

“Coupled with the Visaro in its new colours, we’re confident our range of football boots will give attacking players the ability and confidence to take on the pressures of the modern game meaning its Game Over for the opposition. We know that both Furon 2.0 and Visaro will make a big impact on the pitch in France during the summer.”

New Balance | Furon introduced in Black and Impulse Orange colourway.

New Balance Football has unveiled the latest colourway in the Furon range. Following the incredible fan reaction to the release of the Blackout Furon boots last month, New Balance has retained the iconic, understated black upper in the new colourway but added flair with Impulse orange detailing.

 

 

The boots, especially designed for players who ‘Take Chances’ on the pitch, will first be worn by Valencia CF striker Álvaro Negredo and Manchester City midfielder Jesús Navas.

 

Built for players that are reliant on their speed and agility, the Furon boots are designed to maximise these physical attributes. This is captured by the High-Energy Return Upper for explosive release velocity and a stiffened soleplate for exceptional energy return and unparalleled acceleration. Also built into the boot is the ultra-directional stud design for unrivalled straight-line speed.

 

The ultralight Fantom Fit cage provides the strength and support Furon players need for every game. While the fixed Revlite insock provides superior cushioning, the Burrito Tongue construction holds the foot in place with the Pro-form Last giving unsurpassed feel and unbelievable comfort.
