Getting an insight into the development of a football boot is always an interesting venture.
In the past, we’ve heard from the designers of boots like the Nike Superfly, T90 Laser and adidas F50 – all of which have given fascinating insight into what thoughts goes into our footwear.
This time out, though, it’s Mizuno who are giving us a peek into their development process as Masatoshi Yamaguchi talks us through the Morelia Neo‘s design, piece-by-piece.
One of the most universally well-received boots of the last 12 months, the prospect of the legendary touch and feel of the Mizuno Morelia on a boot that weighs well under 200g definitely got tongues wagging.
In this video, Yamaguchi-san tells us of the three big factors that play their role in make the Morelia Neo Mizuno’s lightest-ever football boot.
Modelled in the Purple/Yellow campaign, the Morelia Neo is currently representing football in Mizuno’s cross-category Seiei campaign ahead of this summer’s Olympic Games.
Hoping to be banging in the goals in these striking football boots is Brazil’s Hulk, who has been confirmed as part of a Selecao strikeforce that also contains Neymar and Pato.
