Mizuno Alpha Made In Japan FG - White/Ignition Red/801 C
The Alpha is the pinnacle of speed cleats, combining a super-light, layered synthetic upper with responsive Enerzy foam to make sure you come out on top in any kind of footrace. Borrowed from Mizuno’s most popular running shoes, Enerzy returns a huge amount of energy whenever your foot meets the ground, propelling you forward quickly and efficiently. It’s highly resilient, too, providing cushioning at the rearfoot to keep you comfortable throughout the 90 minutes and beyond. The upper’s five-layer construction is the other key to the Alpha’s fast, lightweight feel. You’ve got a suede-like lining and a sponge layer for comfort, a skeletal frame for support, a stretchy woven layer for an adaptable fit, and a thin PU outer layer for touch. All engineered with typical Mizuno precision. Sitting at the apex of the Alpha range, the Made In Japan edition boasts Mizuno’s springy KaRVO RS insole board, which makes the cleat even quicker, especially over the first few yards.
Their longest-serving cleat, the Morelia, was originally developed in the 80s to offer a lightweight, natural feel to South Americans who’d grown up playing barefoot. The idea was to showcase their flair, touch, and skill, and that’s still the thinking with the modern Morelia, whether you choose the Morelia Neo with its advanced tech or the classic, ever-comfortable Morelia II.
The Mizuno collection also includes the Rebula, their control-focused cleat, while the Monarcida range offers a more affordable alternative to the Morelia.

Ground Type Guide
Selecting the correct sole plate for the surface you are playing on is crucial, not only for the performance and longevity of your cleats, but also to avoid the risk of injury.
Using an outsole that isn't designed specifically for the surface on which you are playing may cause premature wear and/or damage that will not be deemed as a fault of manufacture and will prevent the retailer accepting them for a refund or exchange.
Cleats with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is firm underfoot but may be slightly wet.
Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot.
FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn.
FG cleats are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction.
FG cleats used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
