If you're new to midfoot running, this shoe was created for you. Mizuno have designed the Wave Evo series specifically to help runners improve their gait efficiency, helping them achieve a lighter, faster and smoother run. The Wave Evo Levitas features a lighter cushioned 8mm midsole and lower platform which provides a closer to ground and lighter experience than the Wave Evo Cursoris.more

Cushioned

The Mizuno Wave Evo Levitas is a brand new innovation, engineered by Mizuno from the ground up, taking into account what runners needs are. The result is a lightweight, flat and flexible running shoe, which helps develop a runners midfoot style, enhancing gait efficiency and improving performance.

The Wave Evo Levitas features a unique 'Wave' plate in the midfoot which offers the same advantages of existing Wave technology, but with more focus on facilitating good midfoot striking and turning that into maximal efficiency through the running cycle.

The Evo series features a slimmer shape also, with a more oblique forefoot shape, which allows toes to splay naturally and equally on the ground, providing a more stable grip for a more confident midfoot stride. The flex grooves on the outsole have also been designed to offer optimal flexibility, enhancing inherent push-off power, with deep grooves both going from heel to toe, and lateral to medial, to improve your overall stride.

  • Wave EVO - A new wave type which facilitates optimal efficiency for midfoot running. Designed to train you and help you achieve a smoother, more natural running style.
  • Asymmetric Lacing - For enhanced natural fitting and flexibility.
  • Deep Multi-Directional Flex Grooves - Allow for greater flexibility and movement, with deep vertical and horizontal grooves, which help facilitate maximum toe-off power, for supreme stepping.
  • Minimal AIRmesh Upper - Lightweight upper which offers superb breathability, helping to keep your feet cool and comfortable.
  • 8mm Stack Height - The 8mm midsole is ultra-light and is ideal for turning up the pace.
  • Zero Drop Differential - A flat platform inside the shoe provides a barefoot experience, encouraging you to run more naturally on your midfoot, working with the wave to provide maximum efficiency.
  • AP+ Cushioning - Cushioning compound which offers a great level of responsive and soft comfort, helping balance every stride.
  • Weight - 195 Grams

EVO are not only running shoes for everyday use, they're also a 'training tool'. Whether you're new to mid/forefoot running or more experienced, they'll help you run more efficiently and develop a smoother, more natural running style. The cushioned midsole and EVO wave in these shoes offer a choice of minimal or moderate protection, while allowing for a more natural gait. Both shoes in the series are light, faster and more natural.


The Levitas is ideal for more experienced midfoot/barefoot runners, it is lighter and faster, whilst the Cursoris with its raised stack height, would be better suited for more newcomers to the style with a raised stack height and more cushioning.


Levitas take its name from the Latin word for 'Light'.

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.

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.

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

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.

"I've owned them for less than two weeks and I've already done a mixture of 5k 10k and a half marathon in them. More comfortable than my previous shoes. Stripped down and light- with no built up heel I was anticipating some grief in the transition from wearing shoes with a built up heel, but these have been great so far."
