The Mizuno Men's Wave Paradox Running Shoe's paradox comes from its light weight in comparison to its maximum support. It's surprising that such a highly cushioned shoe with a high 12mm drop could only weigh ten ounces, but Mizuno made it happen. The lightweight U4ic midsole offers resilient cush, and the Double Fan Wave articulated Wave Plate provides incredible stability while SmoothRide grooves give a smooth transition from heel to toe. Mizuno built the Wave Paradox off a last with a wider forefoot for extra support on longer distances. The shoe's blown rubber flexes for pliable mobility, and it stays strong for seasons. Dynamotion Fit uses elastic bands to move with your foot for a seamless, conforming, supportive performance. Mizuno hired an artist to give the Wave Paradox's upper a fun 3D print.
