The Wave Universe is a shoe that needs little introduction. Mizuno’s premier racing flat has always pushed the boundaries of running shoe weight, while offering resilient cushioning and impact protection. Considering its pedigree, we probably shouldn’t have been jumping out of our seats when we learned that the upcoming Universe 5 shaves almost a ridiculous 30% off the weight of its predecessor. But jump we did when we saw the shoe in person.
Mizuno lists the weight of a Men’s size 9 at just 2.8 oz, while a Women’s 7.5 is listed at 2.2 oz. If that doesn’t get you excited, we’re not sure what will.
