What the Internet Is Saying: On our early-look post on Instagram, @eluxiv_ wrote: “High school baseball coaches about to turn into hypebeasts,” most likely referencing the fact that Mizuno is best known in the states as a baseball and softball brand.
What We’re Saying: Legendary Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama made a name for himself through his “sexy robot” art, which explores the beauty of both the human body and machines, and their relationship. Now fellow Japanese sportswear company, Mizuno, has tapped the artist to create a special edition version of the 10th generation of Mizuno’s eye-catching Wave Prophecy sneaker.
The Wave Prophecy is one of the craziest-soled sneakers on the market, featuring Infinity Wave cushioning, which utlizes large air pockets to give the wearer the feeling of “walking on air.” The sneaker is wrapped in metallic silver in a nod to Sorayama’s sexy robots and features reflective detailing on the sole unit.
Look for the Sorayama x Mizuno Wave Prophecy 10 to drop on February 6 for €300.
