The 'Made in Japan' Morelia Neo is the godfather of footballing quality and the longest serving premium football boot collection receives a typically clean update to sign off 2015 in the same elite style as it began the year.

We're still waiting for a nasty Mizuno Morelia Neo colourway, it just hasn't happened yet. Release after release has seen Mizuno present their leather speed boot in a steady but classy set of three-way colour combinations, which can date back to the launch in 2011. Reserving their finest work for the 'Made in Japan' range Mizuno have added to the collection in the form of the "Pearl/Surf the Web/Chinese Red" update to give its full title, and it comes with a production story far deeper than a standard market release.

Some description

The 'Made in Japan' boots use the same hand-made treatments that Mizuno's professional players receive, which consists of top-end craftsmanship and the highest grade material of Scotchguard K-Leather. Can you put a price on quality? £260 if you ask Mizuno. That's what gets you a boot that's treated with a liquid silicone to make it waterproof, stain resistant and durable. If that's all a bit too much to take in, Mizuno have also released a standard edition of the boot with a price tag half the size.
