Mizuno Wave Evo Ferus Preview via Running Warehouse

Running Warehouse just posted a preview of the Mizuno Wave Evo Ferus trail shoe – they report that the Ferus “…features all of the characteristics of the Evo line: a zero drop platform with midfoot Wave technology, low toe spring, and a wide forefoot for toe splay.” Feel is supposedly similar to the Evo Levitas (I have not yet tried any of the Evo line myself). Weight is 8oz, and release date is July 2012. Structurally this shoe reminds me a bit of the New Balance MO80, which I’m liking quite a bit!

It’s nice to see Mizuno diversifying its lower drop offerings, and these look like a promising addition to the collection of cushioned, zero drop trail shoes now on the market.

Here are some photos from the Running Warehouse:

    I bet you like the colours on the yellow/blue as well ;)

    This shoe looks interesting, but since you mentioned it, can we look forward to a review of the MO80 soon?

  2. Wish there were more options in the zero-drop, cushioned, trail running category. Unfortunately, this also seems tailored towards midfoot/heelstrike runners and not so much towards forefoot runners.
