INTRODUCTION

Mizuno's Kaze 6 is a cross country racing shoe intended for distances up to 10k. Minor overlay adjustments have been made to this version of the spike for an optimized fit. The Kaze 6 has a semi-curved shape.

CUSHIONING

  • Mizuno Wave extends from the heel to the midfoot and is composed of an elastic thermal plastic material shaped in a parallel 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.
UPPER
  • Open Mesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
OUTSOLE
  • Rubber Plate is located in the forefoot and is engineered for flexibility and durability.
  • Textured Rubber is utilized in the heel for additional grip.
  • Contains 6 spike receptacles per shoe.

Comments: Really amazing shoe. I use it for my high school XC meets and it is very light and supportive, I have not had sore feet at all after races. And Gabe the shoe probably didn't feel good on the track because it is meant for running in grass for cross country not track

Comments: After a bout with Achille's tendonitis resulting from using lighter-weight spikes, I decided to try these because of the greater heel lift and cushion. I ordered them a half size larger, and they fit like a glove. The feel is like a good pair of trainers, and I was able to do a ladder workout on the track today with no problems. These are the most comfortable spikes that I have ever worn, and recommend them for anyone transitioning from running in trainers to spikes. I found that no break in period was needed for a comfortable fit.

Comments: I tried running with these on the track and bought them since they were cheap. During the 1500m, they hurt my legs so much that I did 30 seconds worse than my last time. These shoes are not for me and I don't recommend them. I think the heel gives me a problem.
From: Gabe, USA

Comments: Since this shoe is very narrow, I suggest that a larger size be purchased [in my case 1.5 larger than normal was necessary]; other than that caveat would recommend it [especially on the basis of its discounted price].

Comments: Far too heavy for a 5k, grips very well though, but i'll be going back to the kilkenny xc4.
