Unique Wave Technology designed for mid/forefoot strike runners
Over the last few years, there has been extensive research and testing carried out on running styles. There is speculation on whether there is an ‘optimum style’ in order to minimise injury risk and maximise efficiency.
Until recently, running shoes have been evolving to provide cushioning and support. However due to recent research, trends are now taking a different direction, where the feet and body are allowed to work more naturally.
With this increasing popularity of mid/forefoot running, Mizuno is set to launch an innovative masterpiece – the Wave EVO Cursoris.
The Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris, set to drop at the beginning of 2013, marks Mizuno’s foray into the minimalist market. the Wave EVO Cursoris allows the foot to function more naturally, whilst still providing technologies in the shoe to help the runner and improve their midfoot running, particularly when they are first attempting a midfoot strike.
Mid/forefoot striking is best achieved either with bare feet, or shoes with a flat midsole, allowing natural movement of the body and foot. The Wave EVO Cursoris accommodates this with a zero drop midsole ramp from heel to toe. The midsole is 12mm ap+ cushioning foam, for moderate protection, and has deep multi directional flex grooves allowing for a more natural gait.
