With the 2018 FIFA World Cup less than a month away, New Balance took the opportunity to show off the new footwear that they will be bringing to this summer’s tournament in Russia. Designed with key callouts to Russia, which is hosting one of its biggest footballing years for the country to date, the Otruska Pack gives the public the first glimpse of New Balance Football’s new boot, Tekela, in addition to the upgraded Furon 4.0 boot.
Completing the pack is the 574 Sport and stylish Fresh Foam Cruz Sport lifestyle shoes, all in a striking White with Flame Red detail. Men New Arrivals
The newest addition to New Balance’s lineup is the Tekela. Taking over from the Visaro, the Tekela is for the innovator that uses speed and agility to apply their craft. A micro fiber upper with dynamic kinetic stitching allows for a locked in and secure fit all game long. The stitching allows for a shorter lace system, which provides a cleaner strike zone. The outsole is built for agility, with a TPU inlayed with nylon gives you plenty of rotational traction.
The Furon 4.0 is a welcome update to the American brand’s speed cleat. A new super soft synthetic upper with FantomFit technology and a Hidraskin membrane offers a locked down fit, molding to the foot for a great fit. The shorter lacing system offers a larger strike zone. The same sole plate from previous Furon graces the outsole of the new Furon 4.0, offering a responsive feel and traction at high speeds.
New Balance has come a long way since their first intro into the market, and their latest Tekela and Furon 4.0 are a testament to their willingness to evolve and innovate. With this summer’s tournament getting closer and closer, make sure you keep your eyes peeled to see who will be lacing up in the latest from New Balance.
