Do you have a need for speed?
Check out some of out fastest feeling shoes out there! Mizuno has just released a new shoe called the Wave Hitogami. This Kabuki theater inspired racing flat is a lightweight low profile shoe. With a weight of 7.4 oz (men’s size 9) and a midsole drop of 9mm, this flat is durable enough to tackle longer distances. This is possible to Mizuno’s new “U4iC” (pronounced euphoric, like you’ll feel with their shoes on your feet 😛 ) midsole foam which we talked a little bit about last month in our Wave Rider 17 Review. This foam is about 30% lighter than their previous midsole, but every bit as cushioned. The Wave Hitogami debuts at $99.99 and is available today in store.
Wave “Sayonara” to the competition!
For those of you looking for just a tad bit more durability and stability but still looking for a lightweight trainer. Look no further than Mizuno’s other exciting debut, The Wave Sayonara! The Sayonara is just a touch more durable than the Hitogami, but every bit as fast feeling! The sayonara weighs in at 8.1 oz and with a midsole drop of 10mm. The upper features an interesting overlay pattern that provides some structure to the shoe without intruding. This unique fit allows the toes to splay out during the toe-off phase, which allows for a much more natural and efficient stride. The wave plate in the heel also provides a nice safety-net for some stability on longer runs, However i wouldn’t rely on it if you know you tend to overpronate a bit. The Sayonara debuts at $119.99 and is available today here at Roadrunner.
