With the 2022 World Cup starting on Sunday, it’s fitting that New Balance has announced they’ve teamed up with Stone Island on their latest collab on their first-ever football collection, featuring the Furon v7 and football kit for on the pitch and a collaborative New Balance 574 Legacy for off of it.
The Furon v7 features a custom camo print throughout the boot, paying homage to Stone Island’s archival pattern with the boot using NB’s innovative Hypoknit upper for a soft, pliable feel while still being lightweight. The boot was designed to also bring the ball closer to the foot by moving the lacing to the lateral side with a floating canopy overlaid that gives a clean strike zone without sacrificing lockdown. Stone Island’s compass is seen on the heel as well as Stone Island branding featured on the lateral side. The tooling on the soleplate features a chevron-studded configuration that gives the most responsive and bite on the pitch.
The Stone Island x New Balance 574 Legacy features a ripstop and suede upper and dark green colorway, for a deconstructed archive-inspired look with the iconic Stone Island patch seen on the tongue. Cream and grey are seen on the EVA and ABZORB cushioned midsole with a dark green outsole finishing off the sneaker.
In addition to the Furon v7 and 574 Legacy, Stone Island and New Balance are dropping a football kit featuring the same camo pattern seen on the Furon v7 and a silicone application of the compass logo on the badge. NB branding is seen on the left chest with Stone Island branding seen across the chest in black with the jersey and shorts being made from 100% recycled polyester.
The Stone Island x New Balance Furon v7 and kit will drop on November 21st via Stoneisland.com with a newbalance.com release on November 25th, with the Furon v7 retailing for $275 and the kit going for $350. The collaborative New Balance 574 is set to drop later this winter, retailing for $140.
