Details
The Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Women's Volleyball Shoes are the latest addition to the extremely popular Wave Lightning line of Women's Volleyball Shoes from Mizuno. The Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Women's Volleyball Shoes feature a slightly updated design that allows the Wave Lightning RX to shave off even more weight for superior performance on the court. Weighing in at just 8.9 ounces, the Women's Wave Lightning RX Volleyball Shoes are the top-selling elite volleyball shoe on the market, thanks to Mizuno's innovative design technologies. The RX model features an upgraded and redesigned upper that features a new TPU webbing that allows the shoe to remain extremely lightweight, and also accommodates larger feet due to a larger toe box. The Wave Lightning RX Women's Volleyball Shoes feature a Pebax parallel Mizuno Wave Technology to uniformly disperse shock throughout the entire 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 RX Women's Volleyball Shoes also feature an enhanced AP+ midsole with increased rebound and cushion durability while maintaining lightweight performance over previous models. The new RX model is even lighter than the previous generation. Also returning is Mizuno's VS-1 cushioning compound found in the forefoot, which helps provide maximum cushioning and comfort during impact. Mizuno VS-1 technology absorbs shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression-set, which will extend the cushioning life of the shoe. VS-1 is made primarily of vibration absorption material and the remainder being E.V.A. and Isoprene rubber. Mizuno VS-1 is extremely lightweight and returns to its original shape after impact. Volleyball players all across the world will turn to the Wave Lightning RX for its unrivaled cushioning and lightweight construction. Also returning in the Wave Lightning RX is Mizuno Dynamotion Fit technology, which helps relieve the stress the foot naturally places on footwear. This helps eliminate distortion, for the perfect fit and ultimate comfort. A special shock-absorbing cushioning compound in the forefoot also provides superior cushioning and comfort during impact.

Mizuno is also including their Dynamotion Groove technology, introduced in 2011 and designed 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. The Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Women's Volleyball Shoes also feature the famous midsole ventilation system that helps reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe during play, keeping the foot cool, dry and comfortable at all times. The Mizuno Intercool midsole ventilation system is key to success and comfort, making the Wave Lightning RX the top choice among hardcore and professional volleyball players across the world. Mizuno's triple-layred mesh upper provides additional breathability and comfort, quickly dissipating heat and humidity to keep the foot comfortable.The Women's Mizuno Wave Lightning RX 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 RX an ideal choice for active volleyball players.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 RX will continue to dominate the volleyball world and is the best option for serious volleyball players.

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

I bought the Wave Lightning RX to replace my daughter's Wave Lightning 7s. She is very pleased with the performance, feel and fit of the shoe. She says that it feels a bit lighter than the Lightning 7. She practices with her club volleyball team 4 days per week.

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

    The Wave Lightning is seriously the best shoe for volleyball hands down. I've tried other brands, even the one that's supposed to be made specially for women... and Mizuno Wave Lightning is always the best. So much more comfortable and lightweight. I feel like I can jump higher!

    The Wave Lightning RX looks like an awesome shoe, I will defanately be ordering one as soon as they come out. I only wish we could pre-order.

                          I am a high school volleyball player. I started off with asics that gave me blisters and the silver part on the toe started peeling off on the second use. So when I got the mizuno wave lightning RX I felt I was walking on air. My jump landing felt better and more cushioned. Since I am a middle front I need to be able to quickly turn and get to block these shoes provide excellent ankle stability so I wouldn't hurt my ankles. So far there have been no cons to these shoes they feel amazing and look really sleek

                              Bought the black and blue for my high school freshman. She loves them and said they looked better than the picture, a lot cooler! This is her 2nd pair of Mizuno shoes.
                              These are greatly improved. There were no problems with the purchase or shipping.

                                My daughter had to have a new pair of shoes for her volleyball team for high school. The ones the girls chose were the Mizuno Lightning RX2 but the coach said any type as long as they were black would be fine. When I searched for a comparable shoe, I found this pair on sale (about $20 cheaper than the RX2) I ordered it. My daughter was really excited when she received them and they look great on the court. Can't really even tell they're different from what other girls on the team are wearing.

                                                          Bought these for my daughter who is a volleyball player. These shoes are hard to find, but we did and she LOVES these. Great support for the foot and around the ankle (lateral support). Good selection of color and they were very reasonably priced.

We have been shopping for volleyball shoes for a while because she is so particular about the look of the shoes. Mizuno Wave Lightning RX fits perfectly and comfortable. The shoes itself looks very sharp. She loves it!
