Delivers a soft and comfortable feel

The Mizuno Rebula 3 Made in Japan soccer cleat is constructed with premium kangaroo leather that is handcrafted in Japan.

As the material envelops the foot, it delivers a soft and comfortable feel while molding to the shape of the player’s foot. 

Rebula 3 MIJ provides a lockdown fit 

For a better ball touch, a 3D CT-Frame is also part of the shoe’s design. This upper composition is also designed to bring a barefoot feel for the player.

Additionally, instead of a traditional tongue, a stretchable mesh material wraps around the forefoot for lockdown. A non-stretchable diagonal piece also wraps around the midfoot through the heel area. 

Expensive price range

This Mizuno soccer shoe belongs to an expensive price range. The pair feels a bit snug in the midfoot in the first couple of minutes. But the sensation eventually goes away.

The Mizuno Rebula 3 MIJ is available in men’s sizes. The pair also brings an incredibly soft and comfortable feel. Alongside this is a supportive feel for the wearer. A central lacing system is part of the shoe’s design to enhance the fit. 

Offers a flexible and stable feel 

A central closure system aids foot lockdown and fits customizability. D-Flex Groove technology integrated into the outsole delivers a flexible and stable feel. The area also holds a total of thirteen studs. 

Nine are placed on the forefoot while four are placed in the heel area. The forefoot area also carries a rotational stud pattern. Kangaroo leather is the true marker of a truly premium soccer cleat. 

Allows a customized fit

This is why it’s unsurprising to find it in the Mizuno Rebula 3 MIJ soccer cleat. The material is well-known for its soft and comfortable feel. And since the material is highly moldable, this upper conforms to the shape of the wearer’s foot over time. 

A central lacing system that allows for fit customization as well. Doing away with the traditional tongue, this Mizuno model makes use of a stretchable material that wraps around the midfoot, creating a more stable feel. 

Barefoot feel

For a better ball feel and control, a 3D CT-Frame is also part of this area’s construction. This innovation delivers a barefoot feel for the player.

The brand logo has not been forgotten either as it is peppered across the shoe. The upper holds a Mizuno logo situated in the forefoot area. Another logo is placed near the heel area while a bold ‘REBULA’ print is highly visible in the middle of the heel area, as well. 

Maximum traction on firm ground 

The outsole holds a total of thirteen studs. The forefoot contains a total of nine studs. The mix consists of round and oval cleats with the inner area holding a rotational stud pattern. 

The heel area, on the other hand, carries four oval studs for maximum traction on firm ground courts. For flexibility and stability, D-Flex technology is also injected into this area.
