In March 2014 we travelled to Osaka Japan to visit the home of Mizuno football and the factory where they hand produce each of their 'Made In Japan' football boots.

Mizuno like to do things their own way. Away from the bustle of European football, the brand from Japan set their own pace when it comes to football boot production. In March 2014 we were invited to Osaka to get an exclusive look inside Mizuno's Japanese factory.

The small building that sits approximately an hours drive from Osaka's city centre is far removed from the average conveyor belt of mass produced football boots. Each member of the small team works to produce the highest quality Mizuno football boots that form part of the brands premium 'Made In Japan' Morelia line. Custom pro-builds for the likes of Hulk and Thiago Motta also get treated here along with Mizuno's line of Japanese exclusives. Check out the above video from our time in Japan. Special thanks to Mizuno for the experience.
