Mizuno Wave Kien 4 Trail Running Shoes
Experience the ultimate lightweight, versatile trail shoe. Designed with both incredible cushioning and endless grip for all surfaces – thanks to an outsole with X lugs and the cushioned midsole for extra protection.
The upper of the Wave Kien 4 is constructed with an air mesh technology that wraps each foot in breathable comfort. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the entire upper, providing a constant supply of fresh cool air, while simultaneously pushing out hot, muggy air that resides during heavy exertion. In addition, the Wave Stream uses a DynamotionFit system that uses the latest motion capture and biomechanics technology. Mizuno’s blueprint was designed to engineer shoes that work with the foot’s gait cycle, therefore providing a shoe upper that connects with the foot wrapping it in comfort and offering a nice snug fit.
An overlay construction adds stability and structural integrity to the upper, advancing and interlocking with the laces providing a more tighter and snugger fit. The overlays also add durability to the mesh, allowing them to last longer while you put in the heavy miles. A padded tongue, heel and collar provide superb cushioning in those areas to ease chafing and skin irritation.
Mizuno Wave Technology
Keeping the shoes soft but stable is Mizuno’s priority. Mizuno has developed the Mizuno Wave which is an original technology that provides the right amount of cushioning and stability your body needs. The Mizuno Wave provides flexibility in one direction and support in the other while absorbing the shock without compromising on the comfort or cushioning. The initial shock is then transferred back to guide athletes to the next movement. The Mizuno Wave prevents partial deformation and provides dynamic support to stabilise and guide the foot forward.
In addition, the midsole of the Wave Kien 4 features AP+ which provides an amazing ride. The AP+ provides cushioning and comfort levels that just go on feeling new due to a huge improvement in durability.
Michelin Rubber Outsole
Firstly the outsole of the Wave Kien 4 offers XtaRide. XtaRide is Mizuno’s technical trail concept which encompasses Xtatic lugs and a Xtatic groove to help adapt and work in perfect harmony with the foot. This strategic feature helps the shoe move as one with the foot, flexing where the foot naturally flexes and makes it easier to traverse over the tricky terrain that you are more likely to come across when trail running. Secondly, Mizuno has teamed up with Michelin where extensive tests were taken place come out with a rubber outsole that delivers unprecedented traction and grip across all surfaces.
