Details
The Mizuno Wave Lightning 7 Women's Volleyball Shoes are the latest edition of the extremely popular Wave Lightning line of Volleyball Shoes from Mizuno. The Wave Lightning 7 features a completely new design for 2011, as well as some bold new colors and a new, lighter construction that makes the Wave Lightning the most popular volleyball shoe on the market.

Featuring a completely new design, the Women's Wave Lightning 7 features many of the technologies that made past Wave Lightning shoes so successful. This year, the Wave Lightning 7 incorporates Mizuno's latest technologies for enhanced comfort and performance, cementing the Wave Lightning's place as the top performing volleyball shoe available. As with past models, the 2011 Wave Lightning 7 features the Mizuno Wave technology for ultimate comfort and performance. Mizuno Wave helps uniformly disperse shock throughout the sole, providing lightweight cushioning and enhanced stability. This provides a much softer landing for active volleyball players who spend most of their time in the air. Mizuno Wave is a biomechanically-engineered midsole technology that resists overpronation, thus relieving stress on ankle and knee joints. It provides for lightweight cushioning and enhanced stability.

The Wave Lightning 7 also features Mizuno's AP+ midsole upgrade from last year that offers increased rebound and cushion durability, while still maintaining lightweight performance. In fact, the Wave Lightning 7 is even lighter than last year's model, weighing in at only 8.9 ounces. Also returning from last year is Mizuno's VS-1 cushioning compound found in the forefoot, which helps provide maximum cushioning and comfort during impact. The VS-1 absorbs shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression-set, which will extend the cushioning life of the shoe. The VS-1 is made primarily (70%) of vibration absorption material and the remainder (30%) being E.V.A. and Isoprene rubber. Mizuno VS-1 is very lightweight and returns to its original shape after impact. Volleyball players all across the world turn to the Wave Lightning 7 for its unrivaled cushioning and lightweight construction.

While the Wave Lightning 7 features many technologies volleyball players have come to trust, Mizuno keeps innovating year after year. New for 2011, Mizuno has introduced their Dynamotion Fit technology. Dynamotion Fit helps relieve the stress the foot naturally places on footwear. This helps eliminate distortion, for the perfect fit and ultimate comfort.

Mizuno has also included a brand new technology called Dynamotion Groove to improve the structure of the shoe. Dynamotion Groove features strategically designed grooves in the outsole to help combat forefoot instability by retaining their structure under the heaviest of stress. Continuing the Wave Lightning's tradition of providing ultimate breathability and ventilation, Mizuno has also included their popular Intercool technology, featuring a dynamic midsole ventilation system that helps reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe during performance. This helps keep the foot cool and comfortable during intense action.

The Women's Mizuno Wave Lightning 7 also features Mizuno's SensorPoint technology, which helps enhance stability and traction by connecting the Wave plate to the ground. This allows for quick cuts and changes in direction without losing traction, and makes the Wave Lightning 7 an ideal choice for active volleyball players.

Perhaps the most defining feature of the Wave Lightning 7 is the triple layered mesh upper found in the forefoot, which helps provide superior breathability and comfort by keeping the foot as cool as possible, while remaining incredibly lightweight. The specialized XG Rubber found on the outsole helps provide improved traction and flexibility and prevents athletes from slipping on the court.

Mizuno's Wave Lightning line of volleyball shoes has and will continue to be the top selling shoe on the market thanks to its incredible lightweight construction combined with ultimate cushioning. Even lighter than last year's model, the Wave Lightning 7 will continue to dominate the volleyball world and is the best option for serious volleyball players.

        Comments about Mizuno Wave Lightning 7 Women's Volleyball Shoes:

        I am a HS volleyball player who plays year round. Recently fractured the sesamoid bone on the ball of my foot. When I was released to start playing again, I was determined to find a shoe with plenty of cushioning and shock absorbing qualities especially in the forefoot. This is that shoe! Sent back 2 other volleyball shoes before finding this one....I am a hard sell. Wave Lightening 7 is a Quality shoe!

                    I usually wear a size 8 and the size 8 that I ordered fit perfectly. I play twice a week in a gym and so far have no real complaints. The only thing I wish it had more of was traction. I feel like it doesn't have much grip on the court as my running shoes do. Overall, they look good and for this price, it's a pretty good deal.

                            This shoe has been everything i expected it to be. It is much lighter than my last shoe...allowing my blocking jump to get even higher. They are comfortable and fit the width of my foot perfectly. I ordered a 1/2 size bigger to allow for my foot movement when jumping and a sweat sock......it was the perfect amout of space...not huge and clunky.
                            Will buy from this site again and again.

                                Love my new first pair mizuno vb shoes. Very comfortable and light weight. Ordered 1/2 size bigger than 8.5 although it said to order a 1 size bigger. Fits perfect! Used it only once now but will be using more often this upcoming fall. Bought this pair after reading all raving reviews from other users.
