The newest addition to the Mizuno Racing lineup, the Wave Sonic is a versatile road flat that was built to offer a responsive ride over a variety of distances. From 5k racing to uptempo workouts, the Sonic should create a versatile running experience that will excel when it comes time to pick up the pace.
Utilizing an all new midfoot U4icX Wave construction, the Wave Sonic creates a springy underfoot sensation with enough cushioning to take on longer distances. The midsole’s high toe spring creates a fairly aggressive design and the zig zag outsole is built to offer a quick toe off.
Compared to most Mizuno shoes, the Sonic offers a fairly low heel to toe offset. Coming in at 4mm, the shoe creates a more natural feel while retaining a low to the ground feel. To maintain a snug, glove like fit, the Sonic utilizes a thin, seamless upper. The minimal design helps keep weight low while offering an irritant free experience.
Now with the introduction of the Wave Sonic and Wave Shadow, we are excited to see how Mizuno’s newest performance shoes fare against the competition.
