Who should buy the Mizuno Morelia Neo 3

The Mizuno Morelia Neo 3 is perfect for players who are quite flexible in the way they play. This cleat has key characteristics of both a speed cleat and a control cleat.

Aside from that, lovers of kangaroo leather will also be happy with this. Though this is actually made of synthetic leather, the material is soft and has a one-to-one fit. It pretty much mimics how the natural K-leather feels.

Who should NOT buy the Mizuno Morelia Neo 3

No matter how versatile the Morelia Neo 3 is, it just cannot please everyone. Those who fit the following descriptions can pass on this one:

  • purists, or those who want only pure speed cleats or pure control cleats only.
  • those who prefer cheaper options

Improved traction

Compared to the Mizuno Morelia Neo 2, the stud placement and orientation are improved. Hence, this model is better able to dig into the ground. It now has better capacity to provide much needed stability on the pitch.

Enhanced fit

Unlike the Beta version of the Morelia Neo 3, this model has a true tongue. While the synthetic leather that make up the upper still provides a snug fit, the movable tongue provides opportunities for size adjustments whenever necessary.

Dual-purpose touch

The touch is perhaps where things get extra interesting for the Mizuno Morelia Neo 3. The upper leather is thin enough to keep the shoe light and provide a barefoot touch, making it a qualified speed cleat. Yet, it also has sufficient amount of padding, giving it the essence of a control cleat. This extra padding gives the wearer the security and confidence to do different types of ball maneuvers.
