“KAZOKU” means family in Japanese, and distinguishes Mizuno’s joint efforts from its other releases. The latest offering in the on-going series sees FUTUR giving the Wave Emperor F two makeovers: one pale and tonal, the other a retro-indebted black, blue, red and white colorway. Complete with co-branding on the heel, the runner is accompanied by a full range of branded activewear, nearly all executed in black.
A white cap and tee are the only exceptions, with a black coat, leggings, sports bra and cap emblazoned with 3M Mizuno and FUTUR logos for visual impact. Spaced-out FUTUR branding on the coat offers another type of branding, gently contrasting against the hooded outerwear.
