The Mizuno Wave Prophecy hits select retailers across the country on May 6, 2011. Seven years in the making, Mizuno’s vision for the shoe was to create one that optimizes the amount of compression in the heel, alleviating stiffness in the forefoot, and reducing the shoe’s overall weight. The shoe gives you the “ride of your life” as the technologies are built to work in harmony with your foot. Mizuno’s award-winning Wave Technology achieves the two things runners want in shoes: cushion and stability. The Prophecy accomplishes this without putting two separate and sometimes contradictory materials together. The shoe essentially features two Wave plates, stacked and molded together at different densities to facilitate landing on either the forefoot or midfoot. This is what provides the dynamic ‘ride’ feeling you get when you run in the shoe.
