Michelin-level durability

For superior durability, the Michelin outsole is integrated into the Mizuno Wave Hayate 6. The Michelin outsole delivers technical precision on the downhill stretches and provides a firm grip for the steepest of uphills. This material also offers reliable protection against the trail elements.

The ESS rock plate is also embedded in the sole. It is a highly durable material that protects the forefoot section against stone bruising. 

Comfort and stability of Mizuno Wave

The Mizuno Wave technology is made from an elastic, thermal plastic wave that runs from the heel to the midfoot section. This material aims to provide a springy and well-cushioned ride.

XtaRide technology is also featured in this running shoe. It refers to Mizuno’s new technical trail concept, which utilizes the concave wave construction and X-Groove midfoot. The combination of these elements allows the shoe to adapt to the surroundings and work in perfect harmony with the body.

This component is made from a lightweight and breathable mesh, which is slightly denser to prevent the dirt and debris from getting inside the shoe. The mesh top is also responsible for keeping the foot dry and comfortable for an extended period.

Overlays are also infused in the upper to provide support durability. 

Adaptable fit of the Hayate 6

The Dynamotion Fit system creates optimal fit using stretch material, which is included in the forefoot and collar construction. This structure prevents the heel collar from buckling under load while running over uneven surfaces. The Dynamotion Fit system is also featured in the Mizuno Wave Prophecy 8 and Mizuno Wave Inspire 15.

For a secure and personalized fit, the traditional lacing system is used. The shoelaces allow the runner to easily adjust the tightness around the shoe for a snugger in-shoe feel. A padded tongue is also included in the shoe for added comfort and protection.
