Details
The Mizuno Wave Lightning 7 Men's Volleyball Shoes are a new update to the extremely popular Wave Lightning line of Men's Volleyball Shoes from Mizuno. The 2011 Wave Lightning 7 retains all of the features that made the previous Wave Lightning 6 the top-selling volleyball shoe on the market and also features a brand new design and new technologies designed to keep volleyball players at the top of their game. The Wave Lightning 7 is now built for even more speed, and is incredibly lightweight. Weighing in at only 10.5 ounces, the Wave Lightning 7 is even lighter than the previous model.

The Wave Lightning has consistently been the most popular volleyball shoe on the planet, thanks to its innovative and cutting edge technology designed to improve cushioning and stability without sacrificing weight. At the heart of the Wave Lightning 7 is the Mizuno Wave, a pebax parallel Mizuno Wave technology that uniformly disperses shock throughout the sole, providing lightweight cushioning and enhanced stability. The Mizuno Wave is the cornerstone of Mizuno's advanced technologies and the most popular feature of the Wave Lightning 7.

Debuted last year, the AP+ midsole found in the Wave Lightning 7 provides for increased rebound and cushion durability, while maintaining lightweight performance. This allows the Men's Wave Lightning 7 to remain incredibly light without sacrificing stability. The Men’s Wave Lightning 7 also features Mizuno’s VS-1 technology throughout the forefoot, which gives an added edge in comfort for volleyball players. The VS-1 absorbs shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression-set, which will extend the cushioning life of the shoe. VS-1 technology allows the shoe to remain lightweight and returns to its original shape after impact.

For the 2011 Wave Lightning 7, Mizuno has included three new features that further enhance the Wave Lightning. The new Dynamotion Fit technology helps relieve the stress the foot naturally places on footwear, eliminating distortion for the perfect fit. Mizuno has also created Dynamotion Groove technology for superior stability. Dynamotion Groove features strategically designed grooves in the outsole that help prevent forefoot instability by retaining their structure under heavy stress.

Mizuno has also included their popular Intercool midsole ventilation system to help reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe during performance. This helps keep the foot cool and comfortable during intense action. The Wave Lightning 7 also features Mizuno's SensorPoint suspension system technology, which connects the Wave plate to the ground, enhancing stability and traction. SensorPoint is a must-have for active volleyball players and prevents loss of traction on court surfaces. The Wave Lightning 7 is ideal for active volleyball players who spend much of their time in the air or making quick cuts.

The Men's Wave Lightning 7 also features a triple-layered mesh upper that provides the utmost in breathability, comfort and ventilation and also helps keep the Wave Lightning 7 incredibly lightweight. The included XG Rubber outsole provides for improved traction and flexibility on court surfaces.

The Men's Wave Lightning 7 continues to be the top-selling volleyball shoe on the market, and the pinnacle of performance. This shoe is ideal for serious volleyball players who require a lightweight shoe that provides serious comfort and cushioning.

          Very light shoes, was a little concerned how they would cushion landings being so light but they are fine. Perfect traction on cushioned floor and better traction than my other shoes on wood gym floors that aren't dusted properly.

                            I use these shoes 5 times a week and they feel great. No need really to break them in. Very soft on inside and light. Made my vertical increase and speed on the court.

                                A great volleyball shoe! This is my first pair of shoes built for volleyball and the shoes are well worth it. I love the shock absorbing heel.

                                  I use this shoe to practice table tennis, and, to walk around in b/c they are soooooo comfortable. I have a white pair for tournaments. I have a pair of Asics same price but they are no comparison to to the Miz's. They come close in the heel, but thats it, maybe. A keeper.
