The Mizuno Wave is a unique midsole technology, inspired by nature, providing cushioning and stability. The G3 sole is an advanced outsole component that enhances traction and reduces weight. The ap+ and V4IC midsole compounds are lightweight and provide rebound, as well as cushion durability for a high level of comfort. Finally, X-10 is an incredibly durable Mizuno carbon rubber that gives more traction upon heel strike. All of these elements come together to make a tried and true athletic shoe.
