In Kabuki theater, actors use face paint to transform into Hitogami-Human Gods.
You'll experience a similar transformation in the Mizuno Wave Hitogami, a shoe that's light, low and makes you want to run fast. It's lean enough for racing, but has an efficient, stable ride that makes it a great choice for fast training days.
Wave Technology The genesis for Wave came as our engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly.
Wave acts much like your car’s suspension—offering cushioning and keeping your foot centred in your shoe throughout your stride. Our engineers have developed multiple Wave shapes, so we can gear different shoes to fit the unique strides of different runners.
Our AP+ Midsole gives the shoe a bouncier feel. And Flex Grooves and Flex Controllers in the forefoot work together to smoothly continue the roll forward to give your foot a more solid platform at toe-off. It all adds up to a more fluid, enjoyable run, every time you head out.
SmoothRide SmoothRide is the result of years of development designed to the most fluid, smooth, rocking-chair-like motion in every step.
SmoothRide begins working the moment your foot touches the ground. Flex Grooves in the heel promote natural movement from the back of your foot to the front, initiating that rocking-chair motion.
