Mizuno predicts big things for Wave Prophecy

Mizuno to launch new top-of-the-range running shoe in April; presents ‘pinnacle of the brand’s technology and design’

Mizuno is set to launch the Wave Prophecy, its headline running shoe for spring/summer 2011 that represents ‘the very pinnacle of the brand’s technology and design’.

The shoe features two full-length moulded Waves that replace a traditional moulded EVA midsole, allowing the wearer to really feel the full dynamic effect of Mizuno’s Wave technology with optimal cushioned comfort and heightened responsive energy return, Mizuno said.

This is achieved by integrating two Waves connected by cushioning pillars. When the heel hits the ground the Wave starts the cushioning process by dispersing the energy through the entire full-length plates, Mizuno said, and then springs back with a responsive energy return into the forefoot area for a smooth transitional toe-off.

The Wave Prophecy will be officially unveiled on the Mizuno stand at the London Marathon Expo, but is already available to be purchased at an exclusive number of retailers.  

The Wave Prophecy has an RRP of £150.
