‘Make Chances’ or ‘Take Chances’ : Press Release
‘Make Chances’ or ‘Take Chances’ – New Balance Football’s first boot silos celebrate attacking football
New Balance Football today officially reveals the brand’s first range of football boots. New Balance has launched two styles of boots; both designed for attack-minded players, but differentiated by style-of-play – a player’s philosophy. The Visaro boot is for players who ‘Make Chances’ and the Furon boot for players who ‘Take Chances’; it’s not position-specific, its outlook-specific.
Visaro is designed for the players who need to be everywhere at once; those who are surging forward from box-to-box or wing-to-wing. It features a Vari-zone Ariaprene® upper for incredible ball manipulation, a Super-Flex soleplate for exceptional ground contact and a low pressure zone Instep for instant control. These players play a pivotal role for the team, so a Medial Pivot zone has been built for supremely quick turns. Players wearing Visaro still can take advantage of the Fresh Foam insock, which provides superior cushioning, and a pro-form last for unsurpassed feel and unbelievable comfort. Visaro players control the game with exceptional ball retention and creative distribution. They control the game with their vision; making passes that others can’t.
Furon players receive outstanding strength and support from the ultralight Fantom Fit cage. A Fixed Revlite insock provides superior cushioning and a pro-form last gives unsurpassed feel and unbelievable comfort. Furon players show no mercy. They react first to define the match outcome. They score from nowhere and everywhere with deadly accuracy; striking cleanly and quickly.
The New Balance R&D team have worked hand-in-hand with New Balance pro-players, using elite athlete specific data to create the boot design. The two designs give players of all abilities a boot that feels customised to suit their game.
Global Head of New Balance Football Richard Wright spoke with pride at the release of New Balance’s first boot range: “Over 90 minutes, players cover more ground than ever before and the distances run in football far exceed that of any other sport. We have a very strong heritage in running and applying this expert knowledge to the endurance and high intensity of football.”
“We recognise that the modern game is powered by attacking football. Therefore, we have developed two styles of boots for attack-minded players. The players that ‘Make Chances’ and the players that ‘Take Chances’. We believe these boots will meet the player’s performance demands and amplify their unique set of skills – not only just at the top level of the game but at every level of football.”
Available at New Balance Experience Stores (Suntec City Mall, Kallang Wave Mall, Tampines Mall, Velocity @Novena Square, Bugis Junction), Weston Corporation stores, Salam & Sons, and Sportslink stores for a retail price of SGD 229.
