The Mizuno Wave Enigma is designed for the neutral runner seeking maximum protection from their running shoe. With a synthetic suede upper, and a blown rubber outsole, this shoe is soft in all the right places. A composite Parallel Wave plate provides cushioning and stability simultaneously, with the ride that only Mizuno can deliver. The AIRmesh™ upper and Dynamotion Fit™ engineering create a cool, breezy fit suitable for all the motions of running. Mizuno Intercool full-length midsole ventilation system reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe. SmoothRide™ is designed to create a smooth, rocking-chair-like transition from heel to toe on every step. . AP+ midsole improves the quality of the running experience by offering increased rebound and a bouncier feeling run while maintaining the lightweight performance. The unique shape of the Mizuno Wave™ dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a smoother, more cushioned feel on every step. X-10™ durable carbon rubber allows for longer wear in high impact areas and supplements traction at heel strike. Wt. 12.4 oz.

I got this shoe about two weeks ago and it is amazing. It feels more like 11oz not 12.4. The cushioning is the best I have ever experienced. If you are an asics fan because of their cushioning I would make the switch to Mizuno. I have always ran in either the Asics Nimbus or Cumulus, but after experiencing the enigma i will never go back. Great shoe Mizuno! all around!

adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 - Men's
The adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 basketball shoe is worn by Derrick Rose. Laser patterned upper features a SPRINTWEB overlay mid-panel that covers the inner mesh. SPRINTFRAME MONOCOQUE CHASSIS bonds the external heel counter with the asymmetrical TORSION® SYSTEM and allows for maximum weight savings, energy return and motion control. High grade, injection-molded EVA ensures the most lightweight midsole because of the consistent density. SPRINTFRAME chassis has a recess in the midfoot to house a miCoach Pacer unit. Asymmetrical midsole layout aligns with internal i beams. This angled geometry literally makes it harder to twist your ankle and easier to adapt to the ground. High traction rubber outsole features a multi-level cross section that increases surface area and helps limit dust build up. Removable insole. Wt. 11.7 oz.
