A full-length midsole ventilation system called the Mizuno Intercool is utilized in the shoe. This system is a component of the shoe that helps to reduce humidity and heat build-up inside the foot chamber.

Underneath the sock liner lies the U4icX Strobel Lasting Board. It delivers additional cushioning and comfort to the underside part of the foot.

A removable foam insole has been added by Mizuno for the benefit of the underfoot section. This material can be replaced and removed depending on the preference and needs of the runner.

A superb foot coverage 

One important feature of the shoe is the breathable fabric lining. This material makes sure that the interior sleeve is smooth and soft. It is essential in maintaining proper ventilation into the foot chamber. It keeps the foot cool and dry during the running and walking activities.

The Airmesh with synthetic overlays is the material used in the upper unit of the Mizuno Wave Prophecy 7. This material accommodates better inflow and outflow of air. As a result, a healthier and fresher foot environment is maintained.

The upper area is carefully engineered with the improved DynamotionFit. It is a 3-panel construction that makes the entire coverage capable of accommodating the natural shape and movements of the foot. It is essential in making the upper blend seamless to the particular runner who is wearing the shoe.

The Pebax Rnew and bio-based material are used in making the Mizuno Wave Prophecy 7. The Pebax Rnew is a thermoplastic elastomer range that is made from castor oil and renewable resources. It is significant in contributing to the reduction of the hazardous effects of global warming.
