New Balance Football has officially unveiled the Furon Apex Limited Edition boot. The Furon Apex draws inspiration from the Peregrine Falcon, regarded as the fastest animal on the planet. This Falcon is recorded at travelling at speeds of over 200mph, and with its key characteristics being speed and agility; it perfectly encapsulates a Furon player’s approach to using their rapid pace to define the outcome of the game.
Designed for players who take advantage of every situation in front of goal, the new colour scheme features a feather design inspired heel graphic which fades through the Fantom Fit cage to white on the High-Energy Return Upper, with an impulse finish around the collar and laces. The boots will be available in limited numbers worldwide.
Furon players Álvaro Negredo and Jesús Navas will wear the brand new boots this weekend as Middlesbrough take on Everton and Manchester City play Chelsea.
This second edition of the Furon boasts the top of the range boot technology including the Hybrid Mesh Upper engineered for unparalleled straight-line speed. In addition, the Sprint Spike inspired Collar provides explosive acceleration and outstanding comfort.
With stunning aesthetics and the latest in speed boot technology, the Furon Apex Limited Edition will be a popular choice with boot collectors and is ideal for players who base their game around speed, agility and deadly finishing.
General Manager of New Balance Football Richard Wright said, “Throughout the design and development process of Furon Apex we were able to take a step forward specifically in terms of creativity and produce a one of a kind colourway. The design team have done a fantastic job in creating a look that personifies the Furon and we cannot wait to see the players wearing the boots on the pitch.”
The Furon Apex Limited Edition boot will be on sale from 15 September at Weston Corp stores.
