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:

    My daughter stated that she felt that there was enough padding to offer enough shock absorption at the same time the shoe is light enough to allow her to manuever effectively. As a parent the price offered was cost effective.

                  Daughter wore them day they arrived and loved them. No blister or soreness. An outside thats been dealing with shin soreness, I wanted her to get a shoe with more support but she had been wearing a cross trainer for lightness. TheRX weigh only .3 of an ounce more than her old shoe bUt way more support. She also likes how the shoes look AND even got her HS color combo

                        Bought these for my 12 year old volleyball daughter. There is very little change from last years model Mizuno Wave Lightning 7. My daughter says they look and feel much like her former shoes the Lightning 7. Not worth the price difference.

                        She loves the black color. And she says Muzuno fit much truer than the Asics shoes.

                              My daughter absolutely loves these shoes. They keep her feet cool while playing. They are much lighter then her old Mizuno shoes. They give her great traction on the court. I would definitely buy them again. Well worth the price.
