Last week New Balance dropped a new Toxic colorway for their Furon and Visaro cleats. We took the chance-making ones for a closer inspection and here’s what we spotted.
The upper is made of 4mm Ariaprene mesh, a material that allows excellent ball control and feel. White predominates in this colorway, and you can see subtle toxic paint spots on that characteristic Vari-zone surface. The burrito tongue design reduces interference at the moment of interacting with the ball, and the laces feature the bright green tone dubbed as ‘Toxic’ by New Balance. The company’s iconic N stands out in black, as well as the silo’s name placed on the side of the heel.
The heel design offers support and protection, and features PU bonding between its components. On the inside you see the comfortable Fresh foam footbed a technology developed by NB to reduce pressure and help players keep their energy. Below that, you’ll find the asymmetrical internal heel counter and the medial pivot zone designed to help players handle quick turns on the field.
The specific stud placement only helps to enhance the visual impact of these cleats, and New Balance took advantage of that by combining the three colors from this colorway with the soleplate design. The midsole pivotal ones are covered with white, while the rest of them are highlighted with black on a Toxic base.
