After creating a bulbous, bouncy runner dubbed the ENERZY at the top of July, Mizuno is bringing the bounce once again with a new high-top ENERZY sneaker that’s geared towards lifestyle wear. Arriving as part of the brand’s high-end “rhrn” Chapter 2 collection, the sneaker juxtaposes a sock-like top half with a boisterous, bubbling midsole for a high-concept lifestyle look.

Uppers feature a navy blue base with red and white striped detailing on the collar, and a white toebox that’s separated from the navy forefoot with a red line. Small flecks on this forefoot and more stripes on the quarter add to a preppy palette that’s almost Polo-esque, with a textured navy heel counter providing extra structure and a red lip on the rear of the collar assisting with entry and removal. The top half is sock-like in more than just its look too: its woven material was in fact made on the same machines that produce Mizuno’s socks, and is double-knit to bolster its build.

As enthralling as the upper may be, the pièce de résistance is the ENERZY midsole. Although its spherical shapes instantly catch the eye, the tech packed inside is just as enthralling. A soft foam core is surrounded with slightly more firm foam for a plush-yet-responsive feel. Mizuno has even gone as far as stating the material is the most resilient in company history, 56% greater than the first ENERZY silhouette.

There’s also a full set of “rhrn” Chapter 2 apparel. Offerings include two tops — one jacket and one T-shirt — plus technical shorts, each dressed in navy to match the shoes and stamped with white “rhrn” hits on either the sleeves or the legs. All are built from water-repellant materials, and supply technical features like three-dimensional cut shoulders, taped seams, packable collars and laser-cut ventilation dots.

The newest Mizuno ENERZY silhouette and the rest of the “rhrn” Chapter 2 apparel is set to release at Dover Street Market Ginza come August 7. Shoes retail for ¥27,500 JPY (approximately $260 USD), while apparel ranges from ¥22,000 JPY to ¥37,400 JPY (approximately $208-$354 USD). All prices are tax included.
