Mizuno Wave Bolt 2 Men's Shoes

With an updated look and even more weight taken out, the Wave Bolt 2 is a successful reincarnation of the original. Touting triple-layered mesh and a strategically designed synthetic leather support structure, you're sure to be able to bolt around the court for hours before noticing that you're wearing a supportive, performance shoe. Mizuno's Parallel Wave Technology ensures that you won't feel the shock on heavy steps and plants, and the mid-foot shank that's connected to their Wave Plate gives you a stable base that you can feel confident in when making quick cuts and sudden stops. If you like to rely on your court movement, or if you're just looking for a comfortable, supportive, lightweight offering, the Wave Bolt 2's are perfect for you.

  • Fit: Length fit is true to size. Width is medium but runs snug throughout the shoe. Arch is medium. No break-in required.
  • Upper: Triple-layered mesh combined with other high performance fabrics.
  • Midsole: Full-length EVA midsole, and Parallel Wave Technology to uniformly disperse shock throughout the sole.
  • Outsole: Specifically designed modular gum rubber and Dynamotion Groove for maximum flexibility and traction.
  • Weight: 10.5 oz's (Size 10.5)
  • Colors: White/Black

Comments: I had these shoes for about 6 months. I play pretty hard; two to three times a week and practice in between matches. Fit: Overall, it is pretty good. No blisters or crowding. They are not too big. They do not have much arch support though. I bought inserts because I have low arches and need support for better balance. Durability: the gum on one shoe sole ripped off within 2 weeks. It was about the size of a dime. They were still functional, so I didn't throw them away. At 6 months, a huge portion of the gum ripped off. Now I am looking for a new pair.  The shoes are comfy and if you don't play a lot they could be a good buy. If you play a lot look for something else. Something more durable.

Comments: I have always relied on Mizunos for baseball cleats and running shoes, so I didn't hesitate when trying to find shoes for the court. They are extremely lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. If you are trying to find a good court shoe look no further.
