 Mizuno Wave Prophecy - Men's
Mizuno Wave Prophecy - Men's
After seven years of intense research and numerous prototypes, this unconventional running shoe promises the neutral runner the “ride of your life.” The Full-length Infinity Wave™ replaces the traditional EVA (foam) midsole and makes for a super-responsive ride and feel. Main Features Weight: 13.4 oz. (size 9). Breathable mesh upper. Dynamotion Fit™ for mid-stride comfort and optimal fit. SmoothRide™ optimizes forefoot flex allowing fluid heel-to-toe transition. Full-length Infinity Wave Plate®. Additional Information Searching for the optimum amount of forefoot flex without compromising a rigid platform for pushing off, the Mizuno team came up with SmoothRide. SmoothRide begins the moment your foot touches the ground, providing a rocking-chair-like motion as the foot smoothly rolls forward to give your foot a more solid platform for toe-off. This, in combination with a full-length Infinity Wave Plate, provides the runner with a natural responsiveness and efficiency not found in any other footwear. “Wave is engineered to take vertical energy and transmit it over the entire surface area of the Wave Plate,” says Mizuno’s Director of Marketing for Athletic Footwear Rod Foley. Wave takes that impact and “moves it in the horizontal plane, just like your foot does every time you land,” essentially dissipating impact forces quickly and efficiently. Not only does Wave offer cushioning by dispersing impact forces away from the foot, but by doing so it also keeps your foot centered in your shoe throughout your stride. Unlike traditional foam midsoles, Wave is made of Pebax (plastic) which is much more durable. “No one’s going to run enough to kill Pebax. It takes a tremendous load, in all sorts of temperatures,” says Foley. The Mizuno Wave Prophecy running shoe offers an unrivaled running experience. “Try it on and run in it,” says Foley. “Allow the Wave to do what it does. There’s nothing that feels like the Wave Prophecy in the marketplace.”

 Mizuno Wave Creation 13 - Men's
Mizuno Wave Creation 13 - Men's
Shedding nearly a half-ounce in weight from its predecessor, this cushioned running shoe is created for the neutral to underpronator. Gender Engineering creates a running shoe that fit more closely with the different running styles of the male and female runners, which in return maximizes performance. Main Features Weight: 12.9 ounces (men’s 9). Mizuno Wave and Infinity Wave work together to create the ultimate in cushioning, rebound, durability and stability. AIR Mesh™ upper and Intercool™ midsole ventilation system reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe. AP+ midsole offers increased rebound and a "bouncier" feeling. Additional Information The Wave Creation family has long been known for providing a well-cushioned ride to its runners. The 13th edition of this highly praised model is no different. Weighing a half-ounce less then the previous model, the Wave Creation 13 uses a combination of Mizuno Wave and Infinity Wave technology, to ensure the comfort, durability and stability are still there. Dynamotion Fit™ in the upper is a combination of technologies that work together to create an upper that moves seamlessly with your foot. From heel strike to toe off, Dynamotion Fit™ provides a shoe that works with your foot. As your foot twists, turns and stretches during the run, the Wave Creation’s upper moves with you. Flex grooves in the heel promote a natural foot movement, creating a rocking chair-like motion. Addition flex grooves and flex controllers in the forefoot work together to smoothly continue the roll forward to give your foot a more solid platform at toe-off. This entire process is called SmoothRide Engineering™.

 Nike Air Max + 2012 - Men's
Nike Air Max + 2012 - Men's
Nike marked the 25th anniversary of its iconic Air Max series with the sleek-designed Air Max+ 2012. The shoe is geared toward runners with a stride that is neutral to underpronated – one that rolls slightly outward upon heelstrike. Main Features Weight: 13 ounces (men’s size 9) A double-layer mesh tongue adds ventilation. The molded heel and collar lend optimal fit and reduce heel slip. Reflective elements add visibility in low light. Additional Information The latest incarnation of the Air Max series continues the tradition of the Hyperfuse upper that began with the shoe’s predecessor. Hyperfuse combines three layers in a hot-melt process that eliminates glue and stitching, creating a composite that is both lighter and stronger than if the layers were joined individually. The 2012 also carries on the series’ mesh, ventilated upper. But it adds translucent overlays and a dyed full-length Max Air unit to freshen the shoe’s aesthetics. In another aesthetic tweak, Nike moved its Swoosh logo back to the lateral (outer) side of the heel assembly. While the renowned Air Max series celebrates an anniversary, so does the Air Max+ 2012’s Waffle outsole, which turns 40. Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman cooked up the idea for the now-ubiquitous outsole over breakfast, when he spied his wife’s waffle iron and thought that a similarly studded pattern would make for great traction on a running surface.
