Getting a great value cleat is hard to find these days. Many fall apart with practically any touch of the ball. Some are wildly uncomfortable, to the point where you want to throw the shoes immediately in the trash. Others just look plain hideous and you have to wonder if someone was inebriated while designing the color way of the cleat. Lucky for us soccer players, there’s a shoe that has none of these issues: The Nike Tiempo Mystic III FG.

Based off the Nike Tiempo Legend series, this value shoe has it all. Let’s jump into the durability factor. The upper has a soft full grain leather all over so you can get a natural, precise touch on the ball. The material is also real durable and is less prone to scuffing and total meltdowns that are an issue with synthetics. The upper pattern also has a design that helps to conform to your specific foot shape, increasing the chance you’ll be holding onto these great shoes for at least a season or two. The midsole features a High Density, recycled EVA sockliner so you’ve got the ultimate in comfort with each step you take on the pitch. It honestly felt like stepping on a pile of feathers. The outsole features a lightweight TPU plate has a combination of conical and bladed studs. It’s a really unique design choice that noticeably optimized traction and control on the field, no matter what the treacherous pitch presented. Cuts and quick turns were executed with precision and ease. The boot was also surprisingly lightweight, despite it’s naturally heavier materials. Every ounce off your feet counts in late game situations and for the price, the Mystics did not disappoint. Dare I say, they performed mystically. However, can you look cool while wearing the Mystics?

Sure can. The white color way of the shoe may be a bit plain, but it’s professional and clean looking. The Volt Nike swoosh really makes the shoe distinctive as well as the voltage colored conical studs that are visible. The overlying leather tongue features a classic Nike swoosh that dresses up the shoe a bit more and adds a bit more flash to your game. You’ll be a flash when you blow by people on the field thanks to the Mystic’s dashing good looks.

If you’re looking for a great value shoe, you can’t miss these Nike soccer shoes. Affordable, clean cut, and high performing, the Mystics are everything you desire in a great buy.
