Mizuno recently debuted a floating run experience with new XPOP foam technology in its latest shoe introduction, the Wave Sky Waveknit 3. With additional enhancements to the Waveknit upper technology, the combination of XPOP and Mizuno Foam Wave provides cushioning and an added floating feel for runners.

Designed for the style-conscious, high-mileage runners seeking extra comfort underfoot, the Waveknit 3 packs a dual-combination of cushioning using Mizuno Foam Wave and XPOP. A Waveknit upper construction allows for a stable hold, yet flexible fit that supports natural foot movement through its dynamic sock-like fit. Constructed without reinforcements in the midfoot, the wave vectors seen throughout the Wave Sky Waveknit 3 work as hold areas, compensating for the stretch in other areas of the knit to maintain the proper support.

“The Wave Sky Waveknit 3 is the showpiece for Mizuno innovation with our latest technologies, Mizuno Foam Wave and XPOP, delivering the utmost in premium performance comfort,” says Chuck Couch, Mizuno USA VP–running. “We challenged ourselves to enhance the already-comfortable Waveknit technology released in 2018 by combining it with XPOP to deliver a shoe that allows natural movement, leverages both comfort and style and also provides the high-performance fit and quality expected in our footwear.”

The Wave Sky Waveknit 3 retails for $160.
