Loaded up with even more technologies to improve comfort and performance, the Mizuno Tornado 8's are sure to impress. The eye-catching Wave technology helps to improve cushioning and dissipate shock when jumping to avoid a low ball or making a hard stop. Their Dyna-motion fit not only contours to your foot, providing a more natural fit, but it also adapts to your movements, helping to eliminate uncomfortable pinching and pressure points. If that isn't enough, Mizuno has also incorporated their triple-layered mesh and full-length ventilated midsole for unparalleled breathability, allowing your foot to stay cool in that hotbox of a court. This shoe has got it all from cushioning and comfort, to breathability and support, so if you are looking for the ultimate in performance, definitely give this shoe a shot.

Comments: I'm sending them back.  I went up a half size and they are still too narrow and tight. They also are designed in such a way that force your feet to over pronate (roll inward excessively) so that I felt knock-kneed.  Too bad, I really needed those today.

Comments: Well worth the money! Comfortable, great ventilation. But best off all, great cushioning and lateral support, No knee pain the next day.  My usual size felt tight (length and width) went 1/2 size up and fits great.
