Mizuno Wave Prophecy Anthracite/Gold

words // Nick Engvall

Running shoes seem to see technologies come and go rather frequently as brands try to better the cushioning, support and comfort on a regular basis. One technology that has been well received and grown in popularity over the last handful of years is Mizuno’s Wave technology. By continually improving upon the technology little by little, throughout designs like the Mizuno Wave Creation, it has become one of the most trusted cushioning systems available.

The Mizuno Wave Prophecy is the result of 7 years of development. Designed to match your running gait and natural spring rate of your muscles, it’s the only shoe to use a full-length Infinity Wave cushioning. The Infinity Wave cushioning reduces and redirects impact for a responsive ride. In addition, by not relying on midsole foam for cushioning the Mizuno Wave Prophecy also offers increased durability. A mesh upper featuring Mizuno’s Dynamotion Fit technology ensures a comfortable feel. While the outsole, which is made up of a trio of rubber densities and SmoothRide flex grooves, offer optimal traction and smooth transitions. Coming in at just 13.4 ounces for the guys and 10.8 ounces for the ladies, the Mizuno Wave Prophecy is no not going to burden you with heaviness despite its durability.

Available now: Mizuno Wave Prophecy
