Men's 2011 Mizuno Aero Split Short and Aero Singlet

In the past, you may have seen an elite athlete wearing a fantastic apparel item and said to yourself “I want that”, but the product was not available to the general public. Times are changing. In the last few seasons, adidas and Nike have made their respective elite level adizero and Race Day collections available to consumers. Last year Asics got into the game with their Total Impact Line (TIL). The latest player to join the fray is Mizuno, with their Global Elite collection.

Mizuno has long been known for advanced technical apparel, and the Global Elite Collection is their latest showcase. The collection is highlighted by a race singlet and split short and also includes an Aero Tee and the super light Cabrakan Jacket. The Aero Split Short is nearly as light as air and offers a modified half split for great range of motion. The short also offers a laser cut pattern for ventilation and reduced weight. Up top, the Aero Singlet demonstrates great attention to detail. Using a 4-needle flat lock stitch, the Aero singlet provides great comfort. It also has a burn-out mesh back for superior ventilation.

The Global Elite Collection will be available for men and women and is expected at Running Warehouse in early March, just in time for a Spring marathon. For those interested pairing Mizuno’s elite racing shoes with their race apparel, the Wave Ronin 3 ties into the Global Elite Collection and is now available in Antrhacite/Orange for men and White/Orange for women. The updated Wave Universe 4, Mizuno’s lightest racing shoe, will be available in Orange/Antrhacite in July 2011.

Mizuno Racing Flat Update for Spring 2011

July 26th, 2010

Mizuno has always had a reputation for producing footwear that appeals to competitive runners.  Their products have outstanding attention to detail, their materials and construction quality are some of the best in the industry and the fit and feel of the shoes scream “go faster!”  For Spring 2011, Mizuno sets its sights on tweaking two of the industry’s best received racing flats, the Mizuno Wave Musha 2 and the Mizuno Wave Ronin 2 with the third generation of each.

The Mizuno Wave Musha 2 has a great following.  Lightweight and responsive while delivering a touch of support, this model has proven to be one of the best sellers in the category for us.  The shoe has proven so successful that Mizuno has decided to leave it largely untouched. The updated model for Spring ’11 offers the addition of two welded overlays in the forefoot to snug up the fit a bit.  The only other change is the new color.  The midsole, outsole carry over so the ride and performance remain the same as the current model which is a good thing.  Overall, the Wave Musha 3 is a very cool looking update that should definitely perform as well as the current model.
