Top Features of the Mizuno Ladies Wave Nirvana 8 Shoes SS12
Mizuno's flagship supportive trainer combines lightweight support and cushioning in an awesome package, now updated with New Smoothride Technology.
- Mizuno use a supportive wave that starts low on the lateral (outside) of the trainer which gradually fans out and raises in height towards the medial (inside) side.
- The lateral side of the wave provides shock absorption at heel strike working with the VS1 to dissipate shock.
- As the foot rolls in it comes into contact with progressively more support keeping the foot in a neutral position.
- Mizuno wave is the only running technology that combines support and cushioning.
- Also features two key Mizuno developed technologies; AP+ and NEW Dynamotion Fit.
- New Upper design (Improve Fit and Feel)
Mizuno Wave technology offers cushioning at heel strike and perfect support to maintain correct foot biomechanics for the moderate to severe over pronator. Mizuno research into Biomechanical differences in gender has resulted in the Wave Nirvana 8 being perfectly set up for a women's running Gait. Features removable ortholite sockliner designed to compliment the cushioning in the trainer whilst remaining lightweight.
NEW SMOOTHRIDE: Analysis of forefoot transition shows that for the smoothest, most efficient ride runners require shoes that flex easily at first and then become less flexible for an energy efficient toe off. To create a shoe with variable forefoot flex Mizuno has invented a control system which allows the shoe and the foot to flex easily at first and then restricts flexibility during the toe off phase. The result is an extremely smooth and energy efficient transition which means a more effortless and enjoyable ride.
AP+ MIDSOLE: 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.
DYNAMOTION FIT: Dynamotion Fit is all about creating a shoe that works with the skin and muscles of the foot. Stretching where necessary, supporting where needed, and generally matching the movement of the foot for a really harmonious fit. Advanced technology has been used to monitor exactly how the skin and muscles in the foot contract and relax during running, paying special attention to where there is stretching or compression. Mizuno's biomechanical specialists have used this information to develop a design and material blueprint to make shoes that move the way you move. It's as if the shoe is responding like part of your own body adapting its response to the complex changes and movements that take place during the gait cycle.
|Revolutionary Infinity Wave provides the ultimate in cushioning, rebound and durability by reducing the shoes reliance on midsole foam.|
|Combination of shoe technologies that create an upper that moves with your foot seamlessly throughout your stride, eliminating stress points and bunching for a more comfortable run.|
|Unique approach to the sole designed to create a smooth, rocking-chair-like transition from heel to toe on every step.|
|Cool and dry. Mizuno intercool solves the problem of heat and humidity build-up in a running shoe, by incorporating a full-length ventilation system in the sole of the shoe that removes heat and humidity from the foot through a system of ventilation channels|
|Based on biochemical research into the differences between mens and womens gait. Mizuno constructs the Midsole/Outsole of each gender differently to improve the ride, performance and comfort.|
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:Revolutionary New Midsole material. Lighter weight with increased cushioning durability. AP+ (Acceleration Polymer) only losses 20% of its cushioning after 600km. All Midsoles have a mileage as over time the material compresses. Mizuno's new AP+ Midsole takes longer to compress, therefore staying more cushioned for longer.
What it Does: The AP+ Midsole provides a lighter more cushioned trainer for longer.
About Stability Running Shoes
To determine the correct type of running shoe for your feet, use the tried and tested "wet foot test". Dip your foot into water and then stand on a surface that will show your footprint - a towel or piece of paper or cardboard. The shape of your wet footprint indicates the amount of stability you might need in your shoe. If your footprint looks like the one on the right (with a a flare, but with the forefoot and heel connected by a broad band.) then you should choose shoes from the stability category on this page. Stability shoes offer a good blend of cushioning, medial support (to limit excessive inward rolling of the foot, which can cause injury) and durability. To provide stability, they often have a medial post or dual-density midsole - these are features that provide a firmer density under the inner edge of your foot. You should buy these if you’re a midweight runner who doesn't have any severe motion control problems and wants a shoe with some medial support and good durability The Normal Foot Normal feet have a normal-sized arch and will leave a wet footprint that has a flare, but shows the forefoot and heel connected by a broad band. A normal foot lands on the outside of the heel and rolls inwards slightly to absorb shock. It's the foot of a runner who is biomechanically efficient and therefore doesn't need a motion control shoe. Best shoes: Stability shoes with moderate control features.
