The Mizuno Morelia Neo is a lightweight hitter that has been one of the Japanese brand’s best-selling boots. Aesthetically appealing and sturdy to the touch, it’s also one of the more expensive football kicks around that you might want to splurge on.
“Finest K-Leather provides a quilted, luxurious feel and enhanced sense of touch, whilst offering a secure fit. Enhanced flexibility and durability with exceptional weight benefits provided by graded Pebax sole plate. Classic moulded multi-stud pattern for excellent foot hold and comfort, featuring 13 specifically positioned PU studs to reduce pressure.”
One to have in your collection, it’s going to elevate your game and maybe even get you that captain’s armband your mate’s been hogging all these while.
Snug and comfortable, with great traction on grass even if it just poured hours before. You won’t slip easily and you can produce a thunderbolt of a shot with the vamp.
Probably not that suited for artificial grass, the boots might also require some time for you to break in.
During Our Tests:
The Morelia Neo caught our attention with its price tag, which is the most expensive of this lot. But once our tester had a feel of the boot – made in Japan and crafted from the finest K-Leather – there’s only one way to find out if it’s just as luxurious on the field. A glove-like fit at the start was charming, while flexibility and durability to stand the rough and tumble of football was aided by graded Pebax sole plates. Perhaps more suited for grass than artificial turf, the lightweight boot’s classic multi-stud pattern dug deep and excelled on the grass surface. So if you want speed, this is king.
The Mizuno Morelia Neo (MIJ) retails at $449 at all Mizuno outlets.
