Mizuno Zero Drop Running Shoes
As the minimalist running trend continue to move mainstream, Mizuno decided to join the running shoe niche of zero drop and cushioning we these two styles. Offered in both men’s and women’s, the Wave Evo Levitas and Wave Evo Cursoris will be at a running store near you in 2013. The more minimal Wave Evo Levitas ($110) has a stack height of 15 mm in both the heel and forefoot and weighs 6.5 ounces. Wave Evo Cursoris ($120) will provide runners with 18mm of heel-to-toe cushion and weigh in at 7.5 ounces. These styles were first dropped at Running Warehouse and like the guys over at RW, I too believe Zero Drop more cushion will be a huge theme for 2013. We can already see the same from brands like New Balance, Merrell, Saucony, Skechers, Brooks and Altra.
