FourFourTwo Verdict

A super lightweight boot, these are perfect for forwards, with off-centre laces allowing for clean strikes. New Balance have created some of the best football boots around.


  • +

    Some of the lightest boots on the market

  • +

    Snug fit and comfortable from the off

  • +

    Great for first touch and clean strikes


  • -

    Design is unlikely to be seen as a classic

  • -

    Some quick cosmetic wear-and-tear along the side

  • -

    Laces are a bit long

The New Balance Furon v7 is another step forward for the American brand in the football boot market.

If you've never worn a pair of New Balance boots before, these are certainly some to think about, and easily hold their own in comparison to the major offerings from the likes of Nike and Adidas. In our testing, the latest Furons exceeded our expectations and impressed us enormously.
