Nemeziz.3 Review

None other than the Baracelona great Lionel Messi heads the Nemeziz line. If you want a pair of Nemeziz at a lower price, look no further than the .3 version. We'll discuss here if the Messi-led line's cheaper version can prove itself worthy in the takedown tier and appeal to budget-oriented football boot consumers.

Things About the Nemeziz.3 You'll Want to Know:

  1. To maintain the essence of the latest Nemeziz, the collar and tongue are made of a thin and elastic material that crisscrosses on the top of the foot
  2. Has a laceless version whose tongue and collar are relatively more tensioned than those of the laced model for lockdown purposes
  3. The rest of the upper is made of a synthetic mesh; visually mimicks the grip elements of the + model via graphical print
  4. Only available in collared version
  5. Soleplate is a single layer of plastic designed with the looks and studs of the + Torsion Plate
  6. Weighs at around 260g in a size 9 UK
  7. Laced costs £70 while the Laceless is priced at £75

Expert Nemeziz.3 Reviews:

Below are video reviews of the Nemeziz 19.3 Laced and Laceless models by Josh of SR4U. The .3 differs from the 19.3 in graphics only and is essentially the same in terms of material and build.

SR4U on the Laced Nemeziz 19.3:

  • Finds the collar weird-looking
  • Synthetic mesh upper is soft and may have a sock-like sensation once broken in; does not feel premium but also does not feel overly cheap; touch on the balls is not that bad
  • Tonge and collar material is thin and elastic; lacks any lockdown attribute
  • Heel liner is similar to that of the higher 19.1
  • Soleplate's thinner plastic avoids it from being awkwardly stiff and makes it arguably better than the 19.2
  • In terms of weight, the 19.3 is behind other lightweight boots
  • Other than the shallow heel fit, 19.3 on feet feels good; material around the ankle wraps very closely and the mesh upper feels nice and soft; laces needed to be tight especially with the looseness of the ankle material
  • True-to-size fit; not excessively wide and would suit most people
  • On its own, the laced 19.3 Nemeziz is a good boot, only held down in the weight category; still finds the Nike Phantom VNM Academy is the better option in terms of a mesh-based boot within the same price category

SR4U on the Laceless Nemeziz 19.3:

  • Way better than the laced Predator takedown
  • Tensioned one-piece tongue and collar does not feel far off from the +'s Tension tape; especially good considering the price difference
  • Synthetic mesh upper feels decent though obviously lacks premiumness
  • Heel liner's similarity with that of the top-end models bodes well for the takedown boot
  • Lags behind other lightweight boots
  • Above-average soleplate for an adidas takedown model
  • Feels comfortable on feet, notwithstanding the lack of lockdown typical of a laceless boot, as well as the shallow heel fit; durability of the tongue and ankle material might be a concern
  • Length-wise, stay true-to-size
  • Will wrap around well for most foot types, except for extremely wide shapes
  • A nice buy for a cheap laceless boot; look for other options though if you are looking for the best performing and material quality boot for the price point

Your Nemeziz.3 Questions Answered

What are the changes applied from the + going to the .3 level?

The .3 is available in both laced and lacess versions, whereas the + only comes in laceless. In lieu of multi-layered Tension Tape upper, the .3 uses a single layer of synthetic mesh, capped around the tongue and collar with an elastic criss-crossed material (tensioned in the case of the laceless .3). The soleplate is a single plastic piece, in contrast to the split sole Torsion System, with the same stud layout. The .3's graphics is a representation of the grip elements found on the top-level Nemeziz.

How does the .3 feel on feet and which among the laced and laceless .3s is better?

The .3 feels comfortable on feet because the upper is soft and the soleplate has a decent flex. Comfort can be maximized by going for the laced version for lockdown, making it better then than the laceless. Because of the lack of lockdown on the laceless, injury risks are present. The injury risks are mitigated as long as the fit of the laceless is extremely perfect for your foot shape. Also for the laceless .3, take note that the heel is a bit shallow which causes the heel to raise once force is applied on the laceless system. And because that laceless closure does not feel premium, durability might be an issue in the long run.

What size of Nemeziz .3 should I choose?

Go for your normal boots size as these fit true to size.

How much does the Nemeziz .3 costs?

Depending on the available colourway, the laced costs £70 while the laceless is priced at £75.

Can you get a Nemeziz.3 for Kids?

adidas do have Kid-specific makes for the Nemeziz.3 available in FG-specific (laced and laceless). The laced can also be purchased with MG, IN, and TF soleplates, while the laceless only has the TF as its alternative.

Does the .3 have other soleplate versions for muddy pitches, Turf,and Indoor?

The .3 does have an IN and Turf-specific boots but no soft grounded ones. The closest .3 has for artificial grass is the MG variation of the laced Nemeziz takedown boot.
