New Balance’s celebration of its ‘Grey Day’ spills over to football and releases a thematic limited-edition Furon v7. The high-end football speed boots join the brand’s popular trainers like the 990v4, 990v6, 996, 998, 550, 580 and 9060 in commemorating that neutral colour shade that has become a staple to the footwear company. That particular shade that comes in between white and black became the best alternative to those white running shoes that were getting hammered by urban conditions, all while remaining to be a light-coloured pair and even matching the colour of the pavement.
The same can be said then for this limited-edition grey Furon, which could possibly lessen the effects of mud and grass on white football boots. The boot employs a two-tone grey colourway, one visibly darker than the other, in order to reflect its trainer-style design and its tribute to New Balance running shoes. That multiple panel construction, held together by strategic seam placements here and there-all are visually represented in the above mentioned sneaker-look of the Furon.
So once you get to cop a pair of the Grey Day Furon, remember that you can always hit the ground running and get your heart rate up with any of New Balance’s offering for your morning jog, afternoon sprint, evening run or whatever the time and pace of your road work.
