Boot Spy > Boot Insider - Hulk Test Drives New Mizuno

The SoccerBible Boot Insider was present at the Donblass Arena this week, to see FC Porto defeat Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, but more importantly to see star forward Hulk test-drive a new pair of Mizuno Morelia Neo football boots!

In the soccer gear society, word has been reaching us of an exciting project and new boot in the pipeline from Mizuno. The new Mizuno Morelia Neo football boots are being touted as one of the brands most innovative soccer shoes, expected to raise the bar for lightweight football boots and take the fight to Nike and adidas! SoccerBible was first on hand when Hulk took his latest weapon – the Mizuno Morelia Neo - for a test drive!

With exclusive access to Mizuno's lead player Hulk, we were able to get a glance at Mizuno's latest design! Safe guarded by Porto's rather threatening goal-machine, Hulk wasn't giving too much away when it came to his new Mizuno Morelia Neo football boots! We don't expect to have to wait much longer before we get a detailed look at the new Mizuno Morelia Neo, and judging by the look of them, we can't wait!

With the concept of the Mizuno Morelia Neo soccer shoes in mind, the Japanese brand recently flew Hulk out to Japan for extensive performance testing and product development, giving great insights into the processes involved when engineering performance footwear such as the Morelia Neo for the games top players.

As for the new Mizuno Morelia Neo football boots, not much is being given away at the moment. Visible are a few new elements, including a one-piece outsole with innovative studs and structure, and by the looks of the boot collar a thin leather upper, and we all know how Mizuno are famed for their comfortable leather uppers.

Given Mizuno's recent boot history which includes the Wave Ignitus, we know Mizuno have the ambition when it comes to innovation and rivalling Nike and adidas. First impressions would suggest the Mizuno Morelia Neo will rival the likes of the adizero, but stay tuned to SoccerBible as we'll be bringing you the latest boot news.
