One of the most iconic boots in the game has received a colour update. The Mizuno Morelia rivals the likes of the Nike Tiempo and Puma King in terms of enduring performance, and whilst it may be famed for the classic black and white uppers, Mizuno have given their latest version a slightly different look...
The Mizuno Morelia football boots remain a timeless classic, which continue to maintain a strong hold in the heritage boot market through a large allegiance of loyal fans. Their many fans include a host of current and ex-players who started their playing days wearing the Morelia, such as Rivaldo, Thiago Motta, Roque Santa Cruz and Pablo Aimar. But these Red/White/Black versions are unlike what we're used to seeing.
The Mizuno Morelia rivals the biggest boots when it comes to delivering excellent comfort and performance, as the super-soft kangaroo leather upper gives a great touch and feel for the ball. The new Red/White/Black colour-way is another classy addition to the famous Morelia range.
The upper of the Mizuno Morelia soccer cleats is made from a soft kangaroo leather, which is the highest quality natural material available for boots, due to the material's dense natural fibres. The leather is not only durable but is also extremely supple, which enhances fit and comfort, and means your touch and feel for the ball is greatly improved.
The comfort of the Mizuno Morelia upper is further complimented by the EVA sockliner, an Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate foam providing comfort, and is specially engineered for shock absorption to meet the demands of a players movement.
The Mizuno Morelia upper is finished with a solid in-built heel counter, and is
attached to a moulded PU stud plate. The studs are strategically placed
to improve traction and weight distribution, whilst combining with the
heel counter to improve stability, comfort and control.
Overall, there is no denying the quality and craftsmanship of the new
Mizuno Morelia football boots, they are a comfortable boot which
offer top-end performance, and this new colourway certainly has a classy look.
The high level of craftsmanship and the performance attributes of the Mizuno Morelia soccer shoes, has led to them being a popular choice amongst players who aren't attached to big contracts or who play in the lower leagues. A strong player uptake can be found in the South American leagues and more unsurprisingly, Asia. They are a true classic football boot that will always be in high demand.
In an age where lightweight boots dominate football boot design, the Mizuno Morelia football boots are one of the few classics that still incorporates the iconic fold over tongue - a real favourite among fans of more classic football boot design.
The new Red/White/black Mizuno Morelia football boots will be available to order from December 1st at a limited number of retailers. The prices remain the same, with the new Morelia retailing worldwide for around £90 GBP / €150 EURO / $100 USD.
