Mizuno Wave Ignitus Japan FG - Cyber Yellow/Black
Decked out in the series’ iconic European launch colorway, the Mizuno Wave Ignitus Japan FG is based on the most technologically advanced version of the power-focused silo, the Wave Ignitus 4. For the uninitiated, the silo was originally developed with input from Keisuke Honda and his rocket-like left foot – freekick specializts swear by its ball-striking potential to this day. The remake features the recognizable “non-spin” Bio Control Panel on the medial side that reduces ball rotation for deadly accuracy, while the combination K-leather and synthetic upper gives the perfect blend of comfort and control. Underfoot, the lightweight soleplate is built for agility with hybrid traction, and the cleat once again features the trademark Wave system at the heel, reducing impact forces and providing optimal stability.
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.
Cleat Class - Elite
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.
