With the golden age of football passing, the list of actual stars in the game is getting smaller but after his inclusion in England’s Euro 2024 qualifier games and the launch of his collaborative New Balance Furon v7 Pro football boots, Eberechi Eze is on the path to be a star.
Born and bred in South London and fresh off the back of scoring 10 Premier League goals for Crystal Palace this season just gone, Eze is one of the brightest stars to come out of South London and make his rise to the top.
After overcoming some serious injuries and rejections, the 24-year-old midfielder has demonstrated his perseverance that’s resulted in an achievement most footballers only hope will happen to them: a collaborative football boot with New Balance.
Inspired by the stars in the sky he would gaze at where he grew up in South London, Eze and New Balance‘s ‘Furon 7 Starraiser Edition’ is in reference to Eze’s humble beginnings and commitment to his dreams.
Thinking back to his early memories of playing football in Greenwich Park, the green details across the face of the boot draw their inspiration from the constellation of stars viewable from the area.
The ‘Blue Moonshadow’ colourway is a nod to Eze’s first team kit he wore as a junior player. Eze even shot the campaign imagery with a group of young people from the same junior club who are looking to follow in his footsteps.
