No. 15 – Mizuno Wave Ignite
Highlight: Side Mukaiten Panel is designed to deliver amazing no-spins shots.
Keisuke Honda was the player responsible for the rapid rise of the Mizuno brand after his spectacular free kicks and performances at the 2010 World Cup. One of the more appealing aspects of this release is the side Mukaiten Panels that is designed to deliver a shot from the instep that produces no spin. When perfected, it produces a shot that is extremely tough for keepers to read, but unfortunately perfecting it is not an easy as simply putting them on and taking some shots. If you were wondering that the weird black panels across the forefoot are, they are called the 360 Bio Vamps and they offer players some additional spin while playing long balls and additional control and touch on the ball.
