Editor’s Notes: Mizuno Sportstyle continues to disrupt with its heavily performance-oriented yet easy-on-the-eye drops. The Mizuno Wave Emperor Tech is the latest in a line of releases combining fashion and lifestyle design with athlete-approved technology. Originally designed for long-distance track and field, cross-country, and road races, the Wave Emperor receives tech and colorway upgrades that make it as ‘fit-worthy as it is kit-worthy.

Also, check out the latest Mizuno Sky Medal colorways inspired by original 1994 models.
