The bright, checkered pattern of Mizuno Wave Elixir 8 running shoes is a sporty style unlike that on any other running shoe. Innovative SmoothRide™ technology creates a rocking chair-like effect, giving each step a smoother transition for easier propulsion. Ideal for moderate overpronators.
Upper: AIRmesh™ upper enhances breathability and flexibility. A no-sew upper reduces weight and minimizes foot irritation caused by uncomfortable rubbing. Suede synthetic replaces traditional overlays and reduces weight, providing a more secure fit. Dynamotion Fit™ maximizes in-stride fit and durability.
Midsole: Mizuno Wave Technology® dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a smoother, more cushioned feel on every step. SmoothRide™ creates a rocking chair-like transition from heel to toe. AP+ gives responsiveness and bounce.
Outsole: X-10™ carbon rubber allows for longer wear in high impact areas for increased durability and traction. G3 sole provides greater cushion and durability.
The March 2013 edition of Competitor magazine gives these shoes the Editor’s Pick for Lightweight Stability. “The updated Elixir is firm and fast enough to be a solid option for tempo runs or longer races, but still substantial enough to use as an everyday stability trainer for runners with neutral mechanics or those who are mild overpronators.”
