Mizuno Morelia Neo IV Beta Elite FG - Fiery Coral/Bolt
Refined for speed, the Morelia Neo IV Beta offers even more of a barefoot feel with its reengineered upper and stabilizing soleplate. An updated 3D-stretch knit pattern at the rearfoot combines with a softer yet more secure midfoot mesh to make the fourth-gen Neo feel lighter on-foot than anything before. At the laces, the position of the eyelets has been tweaked to minimize creasing during flexion, reducing irritation as you push off or change direction. Not only does the new setup see you fly across the field with ease, it’s upped the comfort factor too, letting you play fast and free with no distractions. The classic K-leather forefoot returns to provide the Morelia’s trademark touch, while underfoot, a stiffer shank in the soleplate enhances stability to keep you balanced and in control as you race away from opponents.
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.
