Mizuno Wave Paradox 5 Running Shoes
Ideal for your daily runs. The Wave Paradox 5 is constructed with DynamotionFit and Mizuno's signature wave technology for a perfect fit with optimal support. The ap+ and U4icX in the midsole work in tandem to provide maximum stability with necessary comfort and cushioning.
Dynamotion Fit Upper
Dynamotion Fit uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. AIRmesh is used to increase airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Dynamotion Fit is all about creating a shoe that works with your foot through the design and materials used to create it. As your foot twists, bends and stretches in each step, the shoe upper moves with you. Flex Eyelets help keep your heel secure by allowing the upper to stretch and contract as needed; reducing in-shoe slippage for a smooth, distraction-free ride.
The Stretch Mesh eliminates the bunching and pulling that can cause discomfort and even blisters, especially at toe-off. Together, the features of Dynamotion Fit create a shoe that gets out of your way, so you can become the best runner you can be. Overlays wrap the midfoot and heel to increase lateral stability. A premium insock lies atop lightweight midsole to supply an extra, removable, layer of comfort and cushioning. A new U4icX strobel lasting board has been implemented for an even cushier, flexible footbed.
Mizuno Wave Midsole
Mizuno's redesigned, full-length U-shaped Fan Wave technology resides in the midsole to attenuate shock and supply a firm, solid platform for stable running. Inspired by nature and sandwiched between the U4icX and U4ic midsole materials, the Fan Wave's unique structure features waves of differing heights to enhance both stability and cushioning. The higher density plate on the medial side of the midsole exists to control overpronation, preventing injury and increasing running efficiency. The proprietary technology also dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a more smooth, cushioned feel on every step.
Manufactured from Pebax Rnew, the Wave's sustainable construction spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving concrete, whilst answering to the environmental awareness of its consumers. Performance isn't compromised though, you still get exceptional lightness, spring-back, impact resistance and improved flex fatigue resistance. The unique U4ic midsole platform encases the Wave plate to increase the level of comfort and performance provided by the Wave Paradox 5, without sacrificing its stable nature. It is an engineered polymer that is light, responsive and cushioned, and it delivers you these properties, kilometre after kilometre, day after day. Then, beneath the wave plate, a layer of U4icX foam exists to add yet another dollop of premium underfoot softness.
Stay cool and dry as you pound the pavements. Mizuno Intercool solves the problem of heat and humidity build-up in a running shoe. It does this by incorporating a full-length ventilation system in the sole of the shoe that removes heat and humidity from the foot through a system of ventilation channels, to keep flagging feet happy on longer distance days. Durability and traction arrive in the form of an X10 outsole. The extremely substantial carbon rubber allows for longer wear in high impact areas and provides more traction at the heel strike so you can run hard, knowing that your shoes can handle the heat.
Mizuno integrates their Smoothride technology to minimise the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible. Smoothride begins working the moment your foot touches the ground; flex Grooves adorn the outsole to promote natural movement from the heel to the forefoot, initiating that rocking-chair motion for fluid, uninhibited strides. Choose the Wave Paradox 5, for slick speed and smooth stability.
