Mizuno has announced an evolution of its Infinity Wave plate Golf Shoe – due for May release in Europe.
Mizuno’s premium golf shoe – the Mizuno Genem Elite combines the feel of a fine grain leather upper, with the powerful stable swing base of Mizuno’s Infinity Wave plate and IG4 spikes. The Mizuno Genem DryStyle features the same sole technology, with a high end Japanese synthetic upper.
The Infinity Wave plate is drawn from Mizuno’s renowned running technology, producing the stable, durable cushioning needed to avoid foot fatigue on long rounds. The Infinity Wave plate configuration has the added advantage of inbuilt lateral stability, creating a powerful golfing platform. The Wave plate is aided by an additional lateral rib structure and forefoot stabilizers.
A new rounded heel support, lifts and cradles the foot, while thicker forefoot padding reduces pressure to the areas most pressured through the swing.
Mizuno’s Mito Yozawa explains, “Our Wave technology has been the driving force behind Mizuno’s rising popularity amongst serious runners for the last ten years. Unlike previous cushioning technologies, the Wave plate also has inherent natural stability and maintains its performance over a longer period.
“A reconfiguration to suit golf meant that the same Wave technology can give a really well cradled, supported fit for the long walk round a golf course. At the same time it stops any lateral movement – storing all your swing power from the base up.”
