Breaking Down the Current Entire Mizuno Boot Line-Up

New Mizuno Soccer Cleats Released

If you are anything like me, you might be a little confused by all the Mizuno boot releases hitting the market recently. Without a large US presence and little to no PR content unleashed with each new release, it is challenging to figure out what is what and where each new pair fits in the Mizuno hierarchy.

Being that they are one of the more expensive brands on the market, investing in a pair is a big deal. And, you obviously need to know what you are getting. So, we created the below guide that breaks down the entire current Mizuno boot line-up available in the US.

Mizuno Wave Cup Legend Japan

  1. It’s wildly expensive, but the Betas are amazing. Fit and touch are immaculate.

  2. Bryan, would you recommend the KL's or to try to save up for the MIJ or even the Betas?
