shoeporn: Mizuno - Wave Sayonara 4

さような! Now in its 4th version – Mizuno’s steadfast and fresh Wave Sayonara. Say “goodbye” (=sayōnara) to slow racing and training!
I enjoyed the sprightly cushioning that the so-called U4iC midsole and its blown rubber provide.
The Wave Sayonara 4 bids a wide-ranging variety of speeds and distances. A solid and performance orientated lightweight trainer that also likes to compete. Runners get a fitting 10mm offset for a neutral ride and fast-paced training sessions.
Stack Height: 28mm on the hell and 18mm on the forefoot.
A crisp and elegant designed mesh upper looks good and is pretty comfy!
A no-thrills sole and a proven standard style within Mizuno. A sole unit that provides the “Uaic” midsole with the “Parallel Wave” technology.
Back in 1906 Rihachi Mizuno found the company in Osaka, Japan. A couple of years later they hit the market with the first running shoe.
You’ll get a straightforward performance neutral running shoe best suited for up-tempo or daily training.
The standard Mizuno emblem is situated on the medial and lateral sides of the shoe.
A pleasant and “airy” webbing offers a lot of breathability. I liked it a lot during hot summer runs.
X10 located in the heel and forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.
Blown rubber in the forefoot increases cushioning and responsiveness.
I would describe the forefoot segment of the Wave Sayonara 4 medium to narrow.
Thumbs up for a driving and steadfast shoe - I liked the speed range and the comfort this shoe offers.
