INTRODUCTION

The Wave Musha 2 is a minimum feature, minimum support shoe designed for racing. It is built with a curved shape.

CUSHIONING

  • Mizuno Wave extends from the heel to the midfoot and is composed of an elastic thermal plastic material shaped in a fan wave pattern. This corrugated design allows for vertical deformation during heel strike to absorb impact.
MIDSOLE
  • AP is a full length midsole copolymer material that provides lightweight, responsive, yet durable cushioning.
  • Smooth Ride is located at the lateral heel and across the entire forefoot and is a gender specific network of grooves to minimize the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition to create a smooth ride.
UPPER
  • AIRmesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
  • Mizuno logo is located at both the medial and lateral sides and functions to help hold the foot in place.
  • Standard Sockliner
OUTSOLE
  • X10 is located in the heel and forefoot for enhanced traction and is composed of durable carbon rubber.

Comments: If you wear Mizunos on a regular basis, you'll love these.  I've worn them at every distance at every pace and love them.  Plenty of cushion for the marathon (for me anyway at 5'9" and 160 lbs.) and light enough for a 5K.  Got me a huge PR in the Chicago Marathon in spite of the heat.  Love the color combo as well.

Comments:  I have just received my pair of Musha 2s. I went for a leisurely jog and for a walk with my dogs. After that, I just did not want to take them off. I love how light they are and they fit me feet like gloves. They are very flexible. They are also very blue. I am not too crazy about the glittering laces either, but their comfort comforts for these small annoyances.

Comments:  Love this shoe. First let me address the sizing. I'm usually a 9-9.5 in regular women's shoes, a 10 in women's (Nike, Asics) running shoes, and I'm glad I ordered a men's 9 in these. An 8.5 would've been too small. I'm an 8.5 in men's Nikes, but these 9's are perfect.

I have a regular-to-wide toebox, and this is perfect. The toebox is also not too tall/high, which often happens. Normal-to-wide heel width, so I probably wouldn't wear it with super thin socks with a normal heel. As these are shoes designed for mild overpronators, they're probably expecting a flat foot, so don't expect arch support. I am your typical flattish-footed overpronator so I remove the insoles and use my own custom orthotics anyway.

I reserve these for when I want a much faster/lighter ride than my Asics Kayanos and a slightly faster/lighter ride than my Nike Lunar Glides. These are about as light as my Brooks Racer ST4's, comparable pronation protection, which is to say barely-there. I'm 136 lbs, so it's fine. I have to ding them a bit, because (as is usual) there's not enough lace to actually use that back lace hole as a loop for extra heel grip. Need another 8-12 inches of lace per shoe. Very stylish, eye-catching shoe. I'll give these a 4/5.

Comments:  Shoe broke in after a 10k recommend for 150lbs and under. Not enough support for heavier runners. Was just right for me.
From: Mario, Texas, USA

Comments: Very comfortable, quick and light. At least for race walking... that's what I do. The fit is great.
