Mizuno has brought out some nostalgic colorways from its archives. The latest Wave Prophecy LS and Wave Rider 10 have been decorated with red, black and white tones, offering a distinctively retro look and feel.
The Wave Prophecy LS is dominated by black uppers, accompanied by a handful of white stripes and red accents. “MIZUNO” branding is placed at the top of the shoe’s tongue, complemented by round laces, neoprene padding, rubber webbing and a large red logo at the sidewalls. Furthermore, the shoe features a glossy black midsole equipped with 4ic cushioning technology for added comfort and support.
In contrast, the Wave Rider 10 sports mostly white leather uppers. The silhouette’s mold is slightly bulkier than the aforementioned one and it looks a lot more retro. Mesh fabrication appears throughout the tongue and toebox, while smooth black full-grain leather panels show up at the toecap and rear quarter. This model also comes with a red logo at the sidewalls, which sits adjacent to some gradated stripes near the heel. All of these features rest over a crisp two-toned midsole to round up the vintage-inspired design of this sneaker.
Mizuno’s Wave Prophecy LS and Wave Rider 10 “Special Pack” are currently available on mita sneakers’ website for ¥23,000 and ¥14,000 JPY (approximately $217 and $132 USD).
