I’m not sure whether many fans in the US know how lucky we are to have so many Mizuno boots available here. There was a time when the elite Japanese brand completely left the American market, so when a Mizuno Pre-Future Pack drops with a selection of fresh new colorways, you absolutely have to appreciate it!
When Mizuno label a boot with “MIJ”, you are immediately entitled to associate them with extreme quality. “Made In Japan” basically means that the boots are handcrafted in Japan without stressing out about how long it takes to piece them together.
Digging a little deeper, 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 tat occurs in the material before they even get to your feet.
Below is a selection of the boots released as part of the Pre-Future Pack!
Morelia Neo III Beta MIJ
While the Neo III is making waves, Mizuno has decided to offer an even more advanced model, called the Beta. This Morelia Neo III Beta takes lightweight, barefoot leather to another level.
Utilizing the best materials, the Neo III Beta integrates more knit for a seamless fit, extremely soft leather, and a responsive outsole.
Rebula Cup Japan
High speed players need a boot that keeps up. Enter the Mizuno Rebula Cup. A boot that is built for the fastest players and a fast first touch. Hand made from some of the finest materials, the Rebula Cup brings the Mizuno quality and modern performance to the world’s stage.
A super soft kangaroo leather upper ensures you have a close and comfortable fit. Padded zones through the upper offers the softest fit and added control on the ball.
Morelia Neo III MIJ
The third generation of the Morelia Neo is officially here. Although it may not look like much has changed, the upgrades under the hood make this one of the best fitting, softest, and most comfortable boots on the market.
Of course, with the Made in Japan pairs you get guaranteed quality. Every pair is hand made by master craftsmen in Japan, ensuring they use the highest quality materials.
Morelia Neo III Pro KL
Modeled after the Morelia Neo III, the Neo III Pro KL takes soft leather and marries it with quality materials for an affordable yet high quality feel.
Made with soft kangaroo leather in the forefoot. A synthetic midfoot and heel offer a great fit throughout the heel, ankle and mid-foot. The sockliner has a rough coating, helping to ensure that you stay planted and stable though all cuts and turns.
