They're Built For Agility


Agility is key and the NEMEZIZ design is inspired by the idea of 'taping' to enhance the performance of players like Messi to provide security, support and adaptability.

They Offer The Ultimate Fit


The revolutionary TORSIONTAPES technology keeps the foot in place to offer the ultimate fit, while the dual-lock collar secures the ankle and makes for an 'explosive' change of direction.

They'll Give You The Perfect Touch


The ultra lightweight construction of the TORSIONFRAME outsole, featuring TORSIONRIBS, creates dynamic push-off support for added agility. But the new AGILITYKNIT 2.0 interlocking yarn structure also makes for a soft and direct touch that is lightweight and adaptable.
