Mizuno Wave Elixir 8 Running Shoes

The Mizuno Wave Elixir 8 Running Shoes feature a number of improvements over the previous edition such as a valuable reduction in weight from the Elixir 7. The shoe is 20 grams lighter and this is achieved through a fresh upper redesign and overlay removal which manages to maintain the internal fit which Elixir fans have grown to love, whilst making the shoe more flexible and helping your feet feel less weighed down.

The support straps have been internalised to decrease bulkiness allows the upper more room to flex and contour to your foot shape. Giving you not only a smoother ride but a personal one as well.

Other features include the Double Fan Wave Plate, which offers superb energy transitioning through the running cycle as well as engaging the plate earlier to help control pronation. The G3 Sole also delivers great traction, with the minimal amount of rubber needed, ensuring you get maximum durability married with optimal performance.

  • Redesigned Upper - The designers have offered a more stripped back version of the Elixir this season, incorporating the support overlays as part of the internal structure, reducing bulk, weight and making it more flexible.
  • Concealed Support Straps - Offer discrete lightweight support, increasing upper stability and fit.
  • Composite Double Fan Wave - The performance engineered Wave plate provides the perfect combination of support and cushioning in a lightweight, repsonsive package.
  • SmoothRide Flex Controllers - Smoothride components have been added to maximise the energy transition from heel to forefoot, giving you a smoother step and improved performance through optimal energy transferral through the step.
  • *UPDATE* - Mizuno Intercool - An innovative full-length ventilation system which gives the runner outstanding breathability and comfort, keeping your feet dry and cool.
  • AP+ - Midsole cushioning compound which maintains lightweight effective cushioning through the cycle.
  • Dynamotion Fit - Helps to relieve stress and pressure the foot exerts on the upper, helping it keep its shape and give you the perfect fit at all times.
  • Premium Removable Insock - Anatomic moulded insock for comfort and cushioning.
  • G3 Sole - The outsole rubber is structurally minimised to offer super-lightweight yet responsive traction and grip.
  • AIRmesh - For lightweight breathability keeping your foot from sweating and over-heating.
  • X10 Rubber - Carbon rubber compound which offers enhanced durability to the outsole.
  • Weight: 255 Grams (Size 8)

Action

Design technology that coordinates fabric characteristics with specific sport patterns, eliminating stress and allowing unrestricted motion for better performance.


Arctic.jpg

Arctic touch

Arctic Touch is Mizuno's most developed fabric with high heat control function. Due to our unique heat-transfer theory, it releases heat generated during exercise efficiently and keeps you feeling comfortably cool.

Biogear.jpg

BIOGEAR

Mizuno's new 'stretch' material supports your body in all areas, allowing all your power to be fully directed at your game. This new sportswear is called 'BIO-GEAR' - Mizuno's performance enhancing technology providing comfort and ease of body.

Bio.jpg

Breath Thermo

A new and revolutionary thermal material which generates heat allowing continuous warmth to the user. Breath Thermo creates perfect apparel for the active outdoor sportsperson in colder climate conditions.

How the heat is generated

Breath Thermo yarn is treated so it does not expand. Heat is generated from the energy created when the yarn tries to control itself from expanding. The heat becomes trapped inside the Breath Thermo fabric, allowing continuous warmth to the user, and perfect apparel for the active outdoor sportsperson in colder climate conditions.

Coolmax.jpg

CoolMax

The Fastest drying high-tec fabric. Coolmax pulls sweat away, so you are dry, comfortable and ready for anything.


Dfcut.jpg

DFCut

DFC allows Mizuno to produce patterns (garment blueprints) which allow the body greater freedom of movement whilst still providing support and protection. Garments with DFC are custom designed for each particular sport.

Dfcut2.jpg

Dry

Moisture management fabric technology that moves perspiration away from the skin and disperses it over a greater surface area for increased evaporation.

Dry.jpg

Dryscience

Mizuno Dryscience moisture management technology offers to the runner a series of high performance by keeping the body dry and comfortable during exercise.

Cool.jpg

Ice Touch

Ice Touch dissipates the heat caused by sweat vapour, keeping you cool and dry. Mizuno tests show that the temperature under Ice Touch fabric is 1-2 degrees centigrade lower than cotton or polyester. Ice Touch quickly absorbs and moves sweat to the fabric's surface, preventing stickiness and keeping you comfortably dry.

Dryscience.jpg

Sanitary

Sanitised treatment that prevents odour and the spread of bacteria to maintain a fresh and clean feel.


FOOTWEAR

Airmesh.jpg

AP Mid Sole

Lightweight and responsive, a more resilient base for maximum responsiveness with every foot strike.

Midsole.jpg

BioLock

BioLock is a simple, yet revolutionary heel-fit system that allows for the best heel fit available and enhances performance by eliminating heel slippage to reduce wasted motion.

Goretex.jpg

Gore Tex

Featuring GORE-TEX XCR in the upper, providing water resistance and comfort for all conditions.

Intercool.jpg

Mizuno Intercool

Mizuno Intercool solves the problem of heat and humidity build-up in a running shoe, by incorporating a full length ventilation system in the sole of the shoe that removes heat and humidity from the foot through a system of ventilation channels.

Wave.jpg

Mizuno wave

A unique technology that combines two distinctly different elements that are both inherently necessary in great running shoes, cushioning and stability. Excessive force and stress is placed upon the body during the act of running, it is therefore imperative to have the correct blend of cushioning and stability to minimise the risk of injury.

The wave plate provides excellent cushioning by dispersing the force of impact across a larger surface area. The stability aspect of Wave technology is gained by the constuction differing between the outside (lateral) and the inside (medial) of the shoe, therefore resisting the compression of the midsole in high pressure areas. The basic elements of cushioning and stability in a Wave plate can be adjusted to cater for any type of runner. Thus resulting in the lightest technologically advanced Serious Performance sports shoes.

Point.jpg

SensorPoint

Stability and Traction. Mizuno's revolutionary suspension system which uses studs that connect the Wave plate directly to the ground, thereby enhancing stability and traction.

Vs1.jpg

VS-1

Shock Absorption and cushioning, VS-1 absorbs shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression - set, thus extending the cushioning life of running shoes.

Traction.jpg

Wet Traction

Bi-Directional outsole rubber synthetic leather compound breaks through water, improving grip in all conditions.

X10.jpg

X10

X-10 provides the most durable carbonrubber from Mizuno that alllows for longer wear in high impact areas and provides more traction at heel strike.

Sozo.jpg

SOZO Studio

Is the spirit with which Mizuno has created a revolutionary design studio to cultivate cutting-edge concepts and methodologies for the development of sports equipment. Using innovative computer simulation which replicates physical characteristics, such as bone structure and muscle mass and then analyses the impact forces generated by various physical traits and running styles, Mizuno is able to determine the exact quantity and positioning of cushioning and stability materials within the midsole of a shoe.

Smoothride.jpg

Smoothride

Maximum comfort, ultimate feel, unsurpassed performance

Direct from Mizuno's Sozo Studio comes SmoothRide Engineering, the next generation in performance footwear design.

Designed to minimise the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot through the phases of the running cycle by reducing shock and increasing flexibility. This allows Mizuno to create running footwear that provides an extremely comfortable running experience through an even smoother ride.
