Updates to Mizuno Wave Resolute 2
- The 2nd edition of the Wave Resolute features a softer AirMesh for both better breathability and adaptable fit. With this new mesh, runners will have more ventilation for cooler runs while the more flexible upper allows runners to find their most comfortable fit.
- The midfoot now uses a welded overlay that effectively helps secure the midfoot without adding risks to irritation. Mizuno removed some of the stitched overlays in the forefoot to provide more room in the toe box and lessen the number of stitches that may cause hot spots.
- Mizuno uses rounder and more textured laces in the Resolute 2. The texture of the laces keeps it from getting untied at any point during the run.
Mizuno Wave Resolute 2 size and fit
This sturdy trainer of a shoe has fit and sizing that are very much like the original model. It has standard measurement all throughout with a locked in midfoot. Mizuno aims to accommodate a wide variety of runners and it succeeds by having a toe box with good volume. Available widths are D and B while sizes are from 7 to 15 for the men’s and 5 to 11 for the women’s.
The outsole has moderate-sized treads that provide runners with a decent bite on the road, gravel, and track. Covering almost the entire outsole is Mizuno’s renowned X10 carbon rubber for optimal durability, especially in high-wear areas.
A firmer compression molded EVA provides light cushioning and durability in the midsole. Sitting on top of this EVA foam is the AP+, which is Mizuno’s own midsole foam with excellent responsive features and resiliency. The iconic Wave technology is also found in the heel. It is an award-winning technology that expertly disperses shock and turns the impact into usable energy for the runner.
The upper uses AirMesh for superior breathability. Mizuno incorporates both welded and stitched overlays for support and structure. The moderately padded tongue and collar enhance comfort while traditional laces of better texture help runners get their best fit.
