Efficient transitions with Mizuno’s X10 durable outsole

The full-length rubber outsole delivers stability and helps with the efficient transition. Mizuno’s X10 rubber covers a large portion of the outsole for exceptional durability and moderate traction. 

Mizuno Synchro MX heel

There are flex grooves in the heel and the forefoot as part of the SmoothRide technology and increased flexibility.

Enhanced stability and responsive ride with Synchro MX 

The midsole is where Mizuno packs the technology in the Synchro MX. It is also here where the shoe gets its name as the technologies work together for the best effect.

Mizuno Synchro MX midsole 1

This shoe uses a dual-density setup where the upper foam is firmer for enhanced stability and a better platform for takeoff while the lower foam features the softer U4ic-X foam for responsive cushioning.

Mizuno Synchro MX midsole 2

Mizuno uses more of the latter in the forefoot and heel areas to give the shoe a plush and responsive ride. This setup is synchronized by the use of the AP+ for even more durability and bounce-back features.

Instead of the Wave technology, Mizuno utilizes the SR Touch, another foam-based cushioning in the heel to absorb shock.

Maximum breathability with Mizuno Synchro MX upper

The AirMesh upper never fails to provide maximum breathability. There are synthetic overlays providing lightweight support and structure as well. Part of the overlays extends to the heel to secure the area.

The seamless construction of the upper creates an irritation-free interior. A traditional lace-up closure keeps the fit tied and secured from start to finish.
