Mizuno Women's Wave Kazan Trail Running Shoes
The Mizuno Women's Wave Kazan Trail Running Shoes takes your running experience off-road with a trail-specific upper designed gives you the optimal balance of secure fit, protection, and light weight. The Wave Kazan is Mizuno's most versatile and technically advanced trail shoe ever. It derives its name from the Samurai battle standard of "Furin Kazan" meaning "move as swift as the wind, stay as silent as the forest, attack as fierce as fire, and be as undefeatable as the mountain". The striking upper design was patterned after topography and Japanese rock gardens. The decoupled X-groove midsole adapts to uneven surfaces while the X-lug outsole digs into soft ground or grips dry rocks as you wind down your favorite trail. A Concave Wave cradles the heel against excessive movement, while a midfoot "X" groove allows the heel and forefoot to move independently and adapt to uneven terrain. The ultra-aggressive x-studded outsole pattern is strategically patterned to provide optimal grip and traction while still allowing for optimal flexibility where needed. And at just 9.5oz., the Wave Kazan is light enough for a fast day on the trails, yet rugged and protected enough for an epic, 100 mile ultra.
