Whats New With The 2016 Mizuno Collection?

Mizuno Basara 101

As we enter 2016, Mizuno has upped their offering with some really clinical new boot releases. Having re-entered the US market in 2014, the Japanese brand has fought to establish its designated place within an ultra competitive field. It has turned out to be a much rockier path to success than anticipated, but the extra excitement of these releases (plus one or two others) is sure to drive fuel to the fire this year.

There are two key boots we want to focus on; the Wave Ignitus 4 and the highly anticipated Basara 101 range. Both provide their own unique levels of performance for players, with the Wave Ignitus geared towards power and the Basara focused on control and speed. Adding to everything is the fact both have been released in MIJ (Made In Japan) format, offering players absolute premium performance!

We’ve secured several pairs to review. First up will be the Wave Ignitus 4 MIJ, followed by both the synthetic and MIJ version of the Basara 101. It is obviously the later we are extremely excited by, since they are a completely new model to the market. A while back, we did feature a first hand review of the Basara that is definitely worth checking out. Over the coming weeks, we will be breaking each boot down in more detail. If you happen to have any questions you want answered, hit up the comment section below so we don’t miss anything as we review them.

  1. Hello Bryan, any idea why Mizuno seem to only have MIJ stuff online here in the US? I like the MIJ line as an option/upgrade, but buyng cleats for a 9th grader playing on grass at home and turf sometimes away, who is liable to grow out of shoes quick, the non-MIJ option is a better option.
