The material provides a comfortable and lightweight feel for players. Furthering the cleat’s fit is also done through a lacing system that runs through the middle of the shoe.

A TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) based outsole is incorporated into the soccer cleat to ensure traction on firm ground courts. The well-received Mizuno Rebula 2 V2 FG shoe also makes use of this material.
