Mizuno currently is only known for its Volleyball equipment and runners in North America. Over the last few years, they have been blowing up in the soccer/futbol world. Recently there has been a petition and survey to bring the company to North America. Just yesterday, my brother received his first pair of Mizuno's. I am quite jealous. It is part of the control category and in my opinion is similar to the Nike Tiempo Legend IV. It weighs about 8.4 ounces and has a kangaroo leather upper. I like how the inside of the shoe and insole is a suede to keep your foot locked into the boot. I currently don't need new boots, but if I were to stray away from Nike it would be to join the Mizuno club.
Love the North
