The moment I first slipped this wonderful trainer on, I said an audible, “wow!” It was quite comfy from the moment I first put on the shoe. I felt the cushion of the midsole immediately and through the 6 six runs that I put into this shoe. This is a well-cushioned shoe that works well for my slow plodding runs and long runs, though I wouldn’t use this as a race day shoe or for speed or tempo runs due to the weight.
Construction and design
According to Mizuno, the midsole on the Wave sky is a blend of the XPOP foam and Mizuno Energy Foam with a U4ic Strobel layer. The result is a very cushioned ride with a nice rebound, so you don’t sink too far into the foam during your run.
