The Mizuno Wave Universe 5 has been reconstructed to be lighter, firmer, more durable. This ultra-lightweight racing shoe is designed to help shave those vital seconds off your personal best time through the use of lightweight technologies and components.
The difference between the Universe and other standard barefoot style racing shoes is in the cushioning. The shoe maintains its vital low profile style whilst still offering the athlete the vital impact resistance needed for those longer distances.
At a staggering 95 grams, the Universe 5 still contains a great deal of performance enhancing technology. The G3 Sole underfoot, helps to reduce weight as much as possible, replacing standard rubber with a new hardened moulded, traction focused outsole, ensuring you strike a superb balance between propulsion and protection. As well as the new U4iC Wave Midsole that has been installed into the shoe. The U4iC has been designed to be unlike other shoe technologies, when your foot touches the ground Wave reduces and redirects impact forces away from the foot. Acting a lot like your car's suspension, it cushion's and keeps your foot centered in the shoe throughout your stride. Mizuno are gearing different shoes to fit the unique stride of different runners, through the development of multiple wave shapes. So if its a local jog or running past the 20 mile marker, Wave will always feel amazing underfoot.
The upper is incredibly light and allows for superb breathability and the overlays are more than a fashion feature, they also help secure the shoe to your foot like a second skin, enhancing the fit and the ride.

Design technology that coordinates fabric characteristics with specific sport patterns, eliminating stress and allowing unrestricted motion for better performance.
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.
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.
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.
The Fastest drying high-tec fabric. Coolmax pulls sweat away, so you are dry, comfortable and ready for anything.
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.
Moisture management fabric technology that moves perspiration away from the skin and disperses it over a greater surface area for increased evaporation.
Mizuno Dryscience moisture management technology offers to the runner a series of high performance by keeping the body dry and comfortable during exercise.
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.
Sanitised treatment that prevents odour and the spread of bacteria to maintain a fresh and clean feel.
AIRmesh allows each running shoe from Mizuno to maintain a high standard of breathability for the life of the shoe, and allows for the foot to stay cool.
Lightweight and responsive, a more resilient base for maximum responsiveness with every foot strike.
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.
Featuring GORE-TEX XCR in the upper, providing water resistance and comfort for all conditions.
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.
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.
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.
Shock Absorption and cushioning, VS-1 absorbs shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression - set, thus extending the cushioning life of running shoes.
Bi-Directional outsole rubber synthetic leather compound breaks through water, improving grip in all conditions.
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.
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.
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.
