New Balance Visaro 2.0 "Typhoon"

New Balance marked their re-entry into football in June 2015 with the Visaro silo. Since then, the brand have acquired a strong squad of professional players as the Visaro has muscled into the control boot market. Aiming to build on the first solid foundations comes the second generation, launching in a "Typhoon/Orange" colourway.

The simplicity of the first-gen Visaro earned many plaudits across the game as the boot dropped in block colourways with subtle 'N' branding. The 2017 update sees the brand shake things up a bit with an exaggerated design and busier aesthetic. The honeycomb upper that was present on the first edition has evolved into a hexagonal structure that's more rigid using different sized embossed shapes with a debossed area acting as a larger sweetspot.

Some description

Visually, it's still a Visaro as New Balance keep the control, touch and comfort characteristics close to home, but the overall appearance is one of next-generation. The launch colourway is somewhat indecisive but the silhouette lends itself nicely to whatever colour schemes New Balance can conjure up in the coming months. You can expect the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Marouane Fellaini and Joe Ledley to switch into the Visaro 2.0 as of now.
