MIDSOLE

  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the heel to the midfoot, creating an incredibly springy and well-cushioned ride. 
  • Infinity Wave uses an elastic thermal plastic material shaped in a figure eight pattern, for maximum cushioning and energy return during heel strike
  • U4ic is a lightweight midsole that provides optimal shock absorption, durability and a resilient ride.
  • Smooth Ride is a gender specific network of grooves that minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot to create a smooth heel to toe ride.
  • Extended Wave Plate in the midfoot is an extension of the Mizuno Wave for increased torsional rigidity between the heel and forefoot.
  • Intercool ventilation system in the midsole inhibits humidity buildup to keep feet cool and dry.
  • Gender Engineering utilizes gender-specific attributes such as a wider base in men’s shoes and additional flex grooves in women’s shoes.

OUTSOLE

  • X10 located in the heel and forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.

UPPER

  • AIRmesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
  • OrthoLite Sockliner is an anti-microbial and moisture wicking insole that promotes a healthy environment for feet.
  • Dynamotion Fit creates optimal fit with stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.
