New Balance has finally released their first range of soccer cleats after 12 months of teasing the market. Carrying their running shoe knowledge to the soccer pitch, NB enters the scene with not one but two amazing cleats: the New Balance Visaro and the New Balance Furon soccer cleats. Under the “Make Chances. Take Chances” campaign, the Boston-based footwear manufacturing company designed these soccer cleats with the players’ philosophy and not their position in mind.
Created for players who “Make Chances”, the New Balance Visaro soccer cleats feature a variety of new technologies that will allow them to surge forward and control the game. New Balance has worked hand-in-hand with pro players and used athlete-specific data to create a soccer cleat that feels customized to their abilities.
The New Balance Visaro soccer cleats are considered as among the most powerful control cleats on the market. Its features and technologies can compete side by side the Nike Magista, Adidas Ace, and Under Armour ClutchFit soccer cleats.
What makes a New Balance Visaro soccer cleat special?
Vari-zone Ariaprene upper
The Vari-zone Ariaprene upper is made of synthetic rubber that has varied textures perfect for ball manipulation. The material is so much like the NikeSkin found on high-end Nike soccer cleats.
Visually, the upper looks like a mesh similar to the upper of a Nike Hypervenom soccer cleats. The Vari-zone Ariaprene is also responsible for making the New Balance Visaro soccer cleats durable. It allows consistent ball touch both in wet and dry weather conditions as well.
The Super-Flex soleplate is designed to allow the New Balance Visaro soccer cleat optimal traction on firm grounds (FG). This technologically advanced soleplate has a smooth white base and is covered with triangular studs. It is also flexible enough to bend in any direction.
New Balance also incorporated the Fresh Foam technology from their running shoe line. The idea behind this feature is that a foam material is inserted between the built-in sock liner and the actual soleplate.

Featuring a color-changing upper, the New Balance Visaro Force is one of the most amazing limited-edition New Balance Visaro soccer cleats ever released. Rightly named so, the reactive upper changes color from the calm Dark Denim to the vivid Ozone Blue when pressure or force is applied on the surface of the shoe such as in making contact with the ball.
