INTRODUCTION

The Wave Evo Cursoris is a minimum featured, minimum neutral shoe designed for daily training or racing.

CUSHIONING

  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the midfoot to forefoot, creating an incredibly springy and well-cushioned ride. 

MIDSOLE

  • AP+ is Mizuno's top of the line full-length copolymer midsole for a lighter, more resilient ride.

UPPER

  • AIRmesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
  • Oblique Toe Shape allows for natural toe splay during toe-off.
  • Flat forefoot last provides a flat platform to allow for an even toe-off along the width of the foot.
  • Standard Sockliner provides underfoot comfort.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.

OUTSOLE

  • X10 located in the forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.

Comments: My first pair of Mizunos. Love the fit, nice roomy toe box and forefoot but snug elsewhere.

Comments: Love it so far! My former shoe was the Altra Torin. I have extreme bunions and the Cursoris has a flexible mesh upper that allows my toes to 'poke' through. With the Torin and prior to that the Asics Gel Nimbus, I had to wear silicon toe caps and still had toe pain with any distance over 6 miles. No toe pain so far with the Cursoris. I've only run about 50 miles so cannot speak to durability but I plan to buy another pair in case they discontinue the meshy upper on the Cursoris.

Comments: I have been running in these since January as a replacement for the Vibram FiveFingers, which I have been advised by an orthopedist I shouldn't wear anymore. I LOVE them - roomy toebox, comfortable, perfect for my forefoot striking - but I have one big issue. The outsole is wearing WAY too quickly at the outer toe. I typically run no more than 10-12 miles in a week and had to replace these shoes after only four months (so not even 200 miles). Rather upsetting considering the cost, but I have yet to find another pair of minimalist shoes that make me as happy as these do, so I'll suck it up - just be warned!
