    Anyone know anything about the Mizuno Morelia Elite?

    https://www.prodirectsoccer.com/p/m...fg-black-black-firm-ground-mens-boots-222592/

    They look quite nice - I'm guessing they are a top end Made in Indonesia model?

    The reason I ask is I've got 2 pairs of Morelias:
    1) SG MIJ
    2) FG MII

    and I've realised that the fit on the Indonesian FGs isn't quite right for me - perhaps just slightly shorter (and defo narrower) in the toebox compared to the MIJs. I always knew the toebox was slightly narrower, but for some reason its taken me ages to notice the subtle length difference.

    Anyway, wondering whether to take a punt on these Elites.

    Anyone hear anything about Morelia Neo 3 Betas giving people blisters on their heels?

    Yep, common thing. The back of the boot is so hard compared to Neo II. One guy even made a video about that topic

    Interesting. I own the Neo 2's, and have had no issues with them, but then bought the Rebula 2's, which absolutely destroyed my heels (see pics). Afraid the the heel counter being extremely rigid without enough padding will cause this issue.

    The rebula 2 just weren't that great boots. I have a pair and they gave me blisters too. Much to my surprise since I never had problems with Mizuno boots.

    Just curious if the reasons for the heel blisters are the same: heel counter.

    nonetheless, opted for the Adidas X Ghosted.1 and May revisit the Neo 3 Betas next year. Still thoroughly enjoying the Neo 2’s.

    Yeah most likely the heel cup and how low the fit of the boot is. No problems with the Rebula 3 or Rebula Cup. Neo 3 Betas are great too!
