'Next-Gen' New Balance Furon 6+ & Tekela 2021 Boots Released

New Balance today unveiled two new boots as part of their Spring 2021 collection - its latest evolution Furon 6+ alongside a color-up of the Tekela v3.

New Balance Furon 6+ - Vibrant Lime Glo and Citrus Punch - Next-Gen Fit Weave Upper

The 'next-gen' New Balance Furon 6+ is not a whole next generation but is based on the popular New Balance Furon v6. It features New Balance’s next generation Fit Weave upper technology to provide lightweight stability. The enhanced low profile knitted collar is the only tweak to the shape of the boot, offering better lockdown.
