The MiUK ONE: New Balance Football Goes Heritage Style! 🇬🇧

The MiUK ONE: Inspired by the beautiful game, made to perform in the modern game. 🇬🇧

 

 

 

New Balance Football has officially unveiled the first boot to be made in its manufacturing facility in Flimby, the MiUK ONE.

 

The MiUK ONE is a classic boot with a modern twist, combining heritage and high performance. 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.

 

 

Packaged in exclusive MiUK boxing, the boot is accompanied by a premium quality cotton Made in UK boot bag, boot polish and a boot brush; ensuring owners can maintain the condition of their limited edition boots for years to come.

 

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.”

 

 

The MiUK ONE boot will be on sale from 8 December with selected retailers worldwide and online at www.newbalance.com/football (US residents) and www.newbalance.co.uk/football (UK residents).

‘Game Over’ – New Balance Football releases Blackout and Whiteout Furon 2.0 range

 

New Balance Football has today revealed new Blackout and Whiteout colourways for the Furon 2.0 boot range. Following an incredible reaction from players and fans to New Balance’s Blackout and Whiteout range last year, these classic colourways have been made available in limited numbers worldwide.

Since its release last year, Furon has been seen on some of the world’s biggest stages through Valencia FC striker Álvaro Negredo and Manchester City winger Jesús Navas. The 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.

Top Line Lacing gives a locked in and precision fit with unsurpassed comfort along with an ultralight Fantom Fit 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.

 

General Manager of New Balance Football, Richard Wright said: “After such an overwhelmingly positive response to our Blackout and Whiteout boots last year, we knew that we wanted to offer these colourways for the latest version of Furon. We’ve seen a great response to the updated version of Furon and we’re excited to see these Blackout and Whiteout Furons on pitches all over the world.”

‘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.

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.”
