Even though it is a boot that has been a firm fan favorite for over 30 years, we haven’t seen many colorway updates on the Morelia silo in recent times. The boot itself hasn’t needed any upgrades or modifications, but there has definitely been a call from traditional fans who want to see more options available.
Well, Mizuno is listening and has dropped what has to be one of the best colorways on the silo, a Navy Blue with true Gold detailing. These absolutely look the part and offer us an opportunity to give the hand crafted, k-leather boot some well deserved recognition!
What makes the Mizuno Mizuno special is how they are created with the MIJ label. “Made In Japan” basically means that the boots are handcrafted in Japan without stressing about how long it takes to piece them together. Each pair is placed and shaped on a last for 24 hours in order to create the perfect shape. In comparison, your average boot on the market gets just 20 minutes on a last. That is a HUGE difference, and one that allows Mizuno to provide players with a boot built on detail and not hype. Think of the natural stress and fit in the material before they even get to you.
Retail wise, the MIJ boots come with a $275 price-tag, available at soccer.com.
