This ain’t no review but read on for the Mizuno’s flagship performance racer – lighter, more responsive and more comfortable than ever!

The Wave Hitogami 2 features a brand new design which showcases the immense characterisitc of the Tengu. The Tengu-inspired design calls upon the mythical Japanese figure known for his ability to move with great speed and rapidity.

The Wave Hitogami 2 also packs a high cushion-to-weight ratio, Parallel Wave technology for unsurpassed cushioning and stability, and a medial flat midfoot for that close-to-ground feeling.

Technology:

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.
  • 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.

OUTSOLE

  • X10 located in the heel and forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.
  • G3 Sole is a lightweight rubber dot pattern in the forefoot for increased grip and flexibility.

UPPER

  • AIRmesh provides light, breathable coverage.
  • Mizuno logo located on the medial and lateral sides helps hold the foot in place.
  • Dynamotion Fit creates optimal fit using stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.

The Mizuno Wave Hitogami 2 is available for men and women and it retails for $169 at all Mizuno concept stores and selected World of Sports outlets.
