At least, it's a big big improvement and a lot more streamlined sensation that looks fast compared to the last few run.
A lot of people want them and New Balance has to realize that they're a brand that doesn't have a well-established reputation in this marketplace and they need to set it (Tekela Pro) at a lower price point if they want people, brand new consumers to give their brand a chance.
It is official. I’m sold on these! It has taken a few years, several silos and numerous releases to get to a boot that has the ability to be a real market influencer. This is the boot.
The upper on the Tekela feels something like feather so it'll provide you a subtle touch on the ball while offering a nice tactile surface due to the dynamic kinetic stitch.
Putting it on, it felt comfortable right away. I did notice one thing. I got a smaller size for this boot.
It's a one-piece upper construction. There is no overlapping layer whatsoever which is really cool. I like that because it just means you get a consistent contact when you hit the ball.
