Wave Sayonara User Review
As Mizuno condenses the number of styles available and focuses on several strong core shoes, the Sayonara will surely be one that shines...It's ideal for someone looking to get a lighter shoe for a marathon, half, or 10k without having to go all the way to a racing flat.
The Wave Sayonara is for runners looking for the benefits of extremely lightweight design. With the high performance feel of our Wave technology, it's ideal on race day or for fast training.
The genesis for Wave came as our engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly. Inspired by nature’s simple efficiency, we created the world’s first and most effective mechanical midsole--the Mizuno Wave.
Unlike other shoe technologies, as your foot touches the ground, Wave actually reduces and redirects impact forces away from your foot. Wave acts much like your car’s suspension—offering cushioning and keeping your foot centered in your shoe throughout your stride. Our engineers have developed multiple Wave shapes, so we can gear different shoes to fit the unique strides of different runners. And Wave’s compact form keeps the shoe sleeker and lighter than competitive systems. So whether you’re jogging around the neighborhood or blasting past the 20-mile marker, Wave always feels amazing underfoot.
