Details
The Mizuno Wave Tornado 5 Women's Volleyball Shoes are the newest version of the popular Wave Tornado line of women's volleyball shoes from Mizuno. The Wave Tornado 5 is poised to continue the tradition of past Wave Tornado models, which continues to be one of the most popular volleyball shoes on the market. The Wave Tornado is a must have for any defensive volleyball player, and the 5th generation Tornado features new technologies designed to improve performance and create a perfect fit.

The Wave Tornado line is always on the cutting edge, with each new version debuting exciting, innovative new features to help improve performance. One new feature players will recognize immediately is the AP+ midsole. Mizuno designed the Wave Tornado 5 with an updated AP+ midsole that provides increased cushioning and rebound capability while remaining extremely lightweight. This has allowed the Wave Tornado 5 to provide a substantial increase in cushioning without adding much weight, which is extremely important for all volleyball players. Also new for 2010 is Mizuno’s Dynamotion Fit technology, which helps relieve the stress that the foot naturally places on the shoe, eliminating distortion and creating an optimal fit. The third new feature in the Wave Tornado 5 Volleyball Shoes is a unique XG Rubber enhanced outer, an enhanced outsole rubber that helps improve traction and durability on the court. This allows volleyball players to make quick cuts and lateral movements without losing traction and improving performance.

Volleyball players all across the world are turning to Mizuno volleyball shoes because of their innovative technologies, including the Mizuno Wave. Like previous Wave Tornado models, the Women's Wave Tornado 5 features the Mizuno Wave technology for superior comfort. The Mizuno Wave disperses impact forces uniformly over the length and width of the midsole, providing the ultimate in cushioning. The Wave is a biomechanical engineered midsole technology that also resists overpronation, thus relieving stress on ankle and knee joints and provides superior stability and cushioning when jumping and landing.

The Women's Wave Tornado 5 also brings back Mizuno's popular VS-1 technology to provide increased cushioning in the forefoot. VS-1 technology helps absorb shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression-set, which will extend the cushioning life of the shoe. The Mizuno VS-1 is made primarily of vibration absorption material with the remainder comprised of E.V.A. and Isoprene rubber. VS-1 is also incredibly lightweight and returns to its original shape after impact, providing increased durability and extending the life of the shoe.

The Wave Tornado 5 also features a full-length midsole ventilation system called Mizuno Intercool technology that helps reduce heat and humidity buildup inside the shoe during performance, creating an incredibly cool, comfortable environment. Mizuno's AirMesh technology provides a triple layer mesh upper that provides for increased ventilation and breathability and quickly helps dissipate warm air through the upper. Further increasing its durability, the Wave Tornado 5 features an abrasion-resistant Kura-Liner that provides increased durability for the collar lining.

Weighing in at 10.7 ounces, the Women’s Wave Tornado 5 is about the same weight as the Wave Tornado 4, yet its new technologies provide a substantial improvement for volleyball players requiring superior support and cushioning. Look for the Wave Tornado 5 to be one of the most popular volleyball shoes on the market for 2010.

                    I wear Mizuno running shoes because they have great arch support, so I tried these out for volleyball. I wear an 8.5 running shoe and needed a 9 in these. Very comfy, great traction on the court.

                        My daughter loves the Mizuno line for her choice in volleyball shoes. She had tried others such as ASICs and Adidas, but none compare. This shoe gives her the support she needs without impeding her ability to jump, since it is so lightweight.

                              I use these shoes for volleyball. I instantly felt the comfort and support the minute I tried them on--seriously. They have great arch support and are very cushion-y.

                              These shoes are great! I'm a former D1 Volleyball player and recently purchased these shoes. I wore them all day in a tournament and held up nicely. I love these shoes!

                                My daughter logs a lot of miles on these volleyball shoes and she has never ever said a bad word about these shoes. We change out once a year and that seems to be just right. She likes the way they look which is important to her.
