Cushioned Comfort With a Lightweight
Innovative U4ic-X Midsole Foam Technology in Combination with Wave® Technology Delivers Smooth, Soft Underfoot Feel Unique to Mizuno.
Finding the right balance of cushioned comfort with a lightweight, responsive feel is a perplexing challenge, yet Mizuno has delivered the solution in the newest evolution of the Wave Enigma. Mizuno reveals the ultimate combination of cushion and responsiveness in the new Wave Enigma 5.
The word «Enigma» is defined as «something mysterious» or «puzzling.» Appropriately so, the Wave Enigma 5 solves the elusive mystery, offering both cushion and responsiveness, without sacrificing one or the other. In a triple-layer of cushioned support, the Wave Enigma 5 introduces Mizuno’s latest midsole foam technology, U4ic-X (pronounced euphoric-x), with a new U-shaped Wave® construction, U4ic foam and a premium sock-liner. Runners will be in awe of the smooth, soft landing experience of the Wave Enigma 5.
«The Wave Enigma 5 delivers the max level of cushioning runners are seeking for their shoe rotation these days,» said Mark Sheehan, Vice President of Product Management, Running, Mizuno USA. «Our multi-layer approach featuring the all-new U4ic-X foam produces an underfoot feel that is unique to Mizuno. Once you put these shoes on, you will not want to take them off the fit and feel is so great.»
The new U4ic-X foam delivers soft cushioning, without sacrificing a responsive underfoot feel. Mizuno’s new U-shaped Wave construction provides guidance, but also delivers a lighter, more flexible ride with improved propulsion at toe-off. Mizuno has also included a softer collar construction with added foam, new 3D fit upper construction for an ideal fit, and internal straps for added support.
The new Enigma 5 is ideal for runners seeking the ultimate ‘ride’ experience on a neutral platform with a smooth heel-to-toe transition. Starting July 2015, runners can find the maximum cushioning shoe in two-color options per gender at running specialty and sporting goods retailers nationwide, as well as online. The suggested retail price is $149.99.
