Mizuno Wave Evo the concept behind development

The new Wave Evo comes in two models: Wave Evo Cursoris and Wave Evo Levitas. The former features a 12mm midsole with a wider platform for extra cushioning and stability. According to the manufacturer this is ideal for new midfoot runners. The Wave Evo Levitas feature a minimal 8mm midsole and the shoe weighs under 200g, perfect for more experienced midfoot strikers. The theory is mid/forefoot striking is best achieved either with bare feet, or shoes with a flat midsole, allowing natural movement of the body and foot. The Wave EVO Cursoris accommodates this with a zero drop midsole ramp from heel to toe. The midsole is 12mm ap+ cushioning foam, for moderate protection, and has deep multi directional flex grooves allowing for a more natural gait.
