Up Close | New Balance Visaro

Creative players with natural instinct – every team needs them as these are the players who are everywhere at once, surging forward, playing a pivot role and controlling the game. 

Not committed to one specific position, the beauty of the Visaro is that it covers so many positions, highlighted by the line-up of Aaron Ramsey, Samir Nasri, Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini & Fernando Reges.

In late 2014 New Balance first teased us with images and talk of their new silos. Little was know and rumours spread but now we can take a more in depth look at the boot which ‘Makes Chances’…

Let’s cut to the chase and look first at the upper as much has been made of it looking rather similar to Nike’s Hypervenom. While this is true, New Balance have in fact been using this design on their running shoes for several years and is called a Vari-zone Ariaprene synthetic upper. Although sounding pretty fancy, it’s simply been designed for for incredible ball manipulation to put you closer in control.

You can always tell a good boot by the attention to detail and by taking a peak inside. New Balance certainly haven’t skipped on supreme comfort here as the Fresh Foam insock offers great cushioning from kick-off to final whistle. Although fixed, we doubt very much you would want to replace it and there’s also a plush, suede-like feel to the padding wrapped around the ankle and heel.

At some point in every game you’re going to be put under pressure and so an innovative Low Pressure zone on the instep allows for instant control. A subtle addition but one that could make all the difference.

Available in SG and FG models, the outsole sees a Super-Flex sole plate that’s been engineered for exceptional ground contact. Both versions combine triangular shaped studs around the edge and heel while rounded ones are applied to the Medial Pivot Zone for quick turns to evade opponents.
