This Mizuno Ladies Wave Ascend 7 Shoes AW12 is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
Weighing in at only 330g this shoe packs a lot of performance.
The ascend series is an acknowledged favourite with trail runners who seek a faster medium profile shoe which offers cushioning grip and stability, and the Wave Ascend 7 does not disappoint. The outsole and midsole are the same as the Wave Ascend 5 & 6 and while profile is in the medium range this shoe still offers plenty of cushioning which has been enhanced with AP + and is good for use on trails and roads.
There is plenty of support from the fan shaped Wave and dynamotion fit upper which fits well and stays with you on even the most uneven surface.
The shoe flexes easily allowing you to get good grip on ascents while the heel has good lugs for controlled descents.
With AP+, Mizuno has engineered a midsole polymer that provides fantastic cushioning mile after mile. Runners will actually see the benefit of AP+ in the increased durability of the midsoles, but more importantly, they will feel the benefit every time they take to the road. A high-tech formulation using multiple polymer types gives AP+ its exceptional performance in terms of cushioning durability, increased rebound and springy feel.
Extensive testing has shown that even after 600km of running, the cushioning performance of AP+ stays close to its maximum. Other polymers lose a high proportion of their cushioning properties quite early in their lifetime. But AP+ retains 80% if its cushioning, even after 600km, keeping that fresh out of the box feel. Comfort is accentuated by the unique rebound properties of AP+ which gives it its springy feel. With every impact, AP+ recovers more quickly and more completely than standard midsole polymers giving the shoe a spring which makes for a fantastic ride.
|Revolutionary Infinity Wave provides the ultimate in cushioning, rebound and durability by reducing the shoes reliance on midsole foam|
|The Tech: Developed in Mizuno's Sozo Studio SmoothRide Engineering is designed to minimise the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot through the phases of the running cycle by reducing shock and increasing flexibility. This allows Mizuno to create running footwear that provides an extremely comfortable running experience through an even smoother ride. Cushioning at heel strike, the angle of the medial wave and midsole materials combine to achieve Mizuno
What it does: Mizuno design philosophy. Links Mizuno technical components from heel strike to toe off to achieve maximum comfort, feel and performance.
|The Tech: AP (Acceleration Polymer) is a lightweight high rebound midsole material to give greater momentum at toe-off. (Acceleration Polymer Responsive Midsole) Lightweight high rebound midsole material to give greater momentum at take-off.
What it Does: A shock absorbing midsole material which provides energy return at toe off.
|Provides the utmost in breathability and comfort of the upper|
X10 is made from Carbon Rubber. Located at the heel on the outsole.
What it Does: X10 is made of carbon rubber and protects high wear areas, and provides more traction at heel strike.
|The Tech: Developed by the revolutionary Sozo Studio. Extensive high speed video analysis showed how shoes distort in the collar and heel counter during the gait cycle resulting in loss of fit and causing heel slippage. The DynaMotion Fit system allows the upper of the shoe to interact with the movement of the foot. This relieves the stress on the upper which causes the distortion and results in fit being maintained throughout the full range of the movement.
What it does: More comfortable better fitting trainers. Ensures superb heel fit.
|The Tech: Bi-Directional outsole rubber synthetic leather compound breaks through water, improving grip in all conditions.
What it does: Improves traction on all wet surfaces
Offroad or "trail" shoes offer increased outsole traction and uppers with toe bumpers and reinforced stitching for more durability. The foot often sits slightly lower to the ground than usual for stability and responsiveness. Offroad shoes often have less cushioning than a road shoe because they're designed for softer surfaces. You should choose offroad shoes if you do a lot of off-road running and need shoes with extra traction, more durable uppers and extra protection from the terrain.
