Drawing inspiration from the headlines, created when players leave their mark on the game, New Balance launch the ‘Dark Ink’ pack, wrapping the Tekela v3+ and Furon v6+ in dark suits for a subtle approach to the season ahead.
Taking an ultra-exclusive approach to the launch of the next generation Tekela, New Balance recently unveiled the ‘First Edition’, which saw all visible branding removed for a blacked out beauty that was only available for 48 hours. Now they take a step back into more regular territory, continuing the newspaper-esque theme and once again keeping the colour to a minimum for the ‘Dark Ink’ pack, which sees the Furon v6+ lineup alongside the Tekela v3+ for the first time.
So for the Triple Black Tekela v3+, New Balance has utilised a colour shifting effect that allows the returning branding on the boot to change colour depending on the light source, creating a unique, almost iridescent finish. Boasting a re-engineered stretch knit upper for optimum performance, the v3+ incorporates a full nylon injected chassis for in-game lightweight stability. A multi- directional stud configuration provides an incredible firm ground feel.
Joining the Tekela in the darkness is the Triple Black Furon 6+. It showcases next-generation fit weave upper technology for a faster and cleaner feeling as well as utilising the same colour shifting effect on the braining as the Tekela v3+, which allows the boot to change colour depending on the light source and angle.
