D-Flex Groove

Aside from lateral movements, tennis involves lots of diagonal footwork. Mizuno recognizes this foot pattern and came up with the D-Flex Groove, a diagonal groove carved along the midfoot. The groove pattern is made up of different densities that promote flexibility. 

Mizuno Wave Exceed Tour 3 AC Outsole

Excellent grip and durable

The rubber wedges warp during high-velocity, multidirectional foot movements without losing their form. This design offers a good grip on clay and hard courts, thus allowing aggressive movers to shift directions naturally.

Mizuno Wave technology

This all-court trainer employs the Mizuno Wave technology, a three-dimensional cushioning plate that’s created to disperse the force of impact away from the foot. Lodged from the midfoot to the rearfoot, this layer grants flexibility as well as support during lateral and diagonal movements.
