Wave Sky 5 incorporates MIZUNO ENERZY CORE and all new woven upper - NORCROSS, GA – (August 12, 2021) Mizuno, a global leader in running footwear and apparel, launched the fifth iteration of the Mizuno Wave Sky series, Wave Sky 5. The Wave Sky 5 features MIZUNO ENERZY CORE, the brand’s softest and most responsive midsole material yet, along with an all-new Smooth Stretch Woven upper.

"The new Wave Sky 5 provides a supremely comfortable and smooth fit, with a higher energy return at a lighter weight than previous versions,” said Tina Danforth, Product Manager for Running Footwear and Apparel. “With the expansion of MIZUNO ENERZY with MIZUNO ENERZY CORE and the new addition of Smooth Stretch Woven, runners will enjoy greater rebound with each stride and increased softness for a smoother run.”

Loaded with Mizuno’s proven technologies, the Wave Sky 5 includes Mizuno Wave®, X10 Outsole™, MIZUNO ENERZY CORE, Smooth Stretch Woven upper and MIZUNO ENERZY. Introduced in the series’ previous iteration, Mizuno’s latest foam technology, MIZUNO ENERZY, harnesses more energy generated on impact and delivers it back between each stride. This allows runners to go longer distances while experiencing less fatigue. MIZUNO ENERZY CORE — exclusive to the Wave Sky 5 — adds to the responsiveness of the shoe and gives runners a boost with every strike.  

Smooth Stretch Woven upper – building upon Mizuno’s WAVEKNIT™ technology used in previous iterations of the Wave Sky – wraps around the runner’s foot to create a semi-socklike fit that is still breathable enough to keep feet dry on hard runs. The fabric also expands opportunities for color and design on the shoe, making the shoes eye-catching in addition to their extreme comfort.
