Details
The Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 Men's Volleyball Shoes are a new update to the extremely popular Wave Tornado line of Men's Volleyball shoes from Mizuno. The Wave Tornado 6 continues the tradition of previous Wave Tornado shoes and retains all the same features that made previous models a success. New for 2011, the Men's Wave Tornado 6 loses the red and black color in favor of a black and silver, along with a slight redesign. Serious volleyball players all around the world turn to the Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 for its exceptional cushioning, stability and durability.

The Men's Wave Tornado 6 brings back the innovative Mizuno Wave technology found in most of Mizuno's volleyball shoes, which allows the Wave Tornado 6 to provide ultimate cushioning and comfort. The Wave is a revolutionary, volleyball specific full-length Pebax technology that provides superior stability and cushioning when jumping and landing. The Infinity Wave has been extended to the lateral midfoot to counteract the pressure the foot places on this part of the shoe when jumping and changing direction. This helps provide improved cushioning and stability.

The advanced AP+ midsole is back, and allows for increased rebound and cushion durability while maintaining lightweight performance. Mizuno has included its popular VS-1 technology in the forefoot of the Wave Tornado 6 to provide for increased cushioning and shock absorption to complete the package. Mizuno VS-1 technology resists compression-set, which extends the cushioning life of these shoes substantially. VS-1 is also incredibly lightweight and returns to its original shape after impact, providing increased durability and extending the life of the shoe even further.

Also returning is Mizuno's Dynamotion Fit technology, which helps relieve the stress the foot naturally places on footwear. This eliminates distortion, offering the perfect fit. Dynamotion Fit utilizes a unique V-notch with stretch material in the medial forefoot, causing the shoe to contract in concert with the foot, creating the optimal fit for serious comfort and performance. Mizuno Intercool technology provides a full-length midsole ventilation system that helps reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe during performance, keeping the foot cool and dry at all times.

The Men's Wave Tornado 6 also features Mizuno's Kura-Liner technology in the collar area for ultimate durability, as well as AIRmesh technology for serious breathability and ventilation. AIRmesh is a triple-layered mesh found in the upper that allows the foot to stay cool at all times. The Wave Tornado 6 also features Mizuno's XG Rubber technology found on the outsole for ultimate traction and flexibility on court surfaces, preventing slipping and providing volleyball players with an extremely firm and stable foundation.

The Men's Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 continues to be one of the most popular volleyball shoes on the market, thanks to its extremely innovative list of technologies and features, including advanced cushioning, stability and durability.

Comments about Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

I had the Mizuno Wave Tornado before this pair and through normal wear and tear(and me wearing the shoes on concrete) it was time for another pair. I bought the same pair, just this time it was the Wave Tornado 6. It fit well, needed to be broken in a bit more than my last pair but they fit great now. My one gripe is that one of the loops for the shoestring broke within a couple weeks. I tie my shoes pretty tightly as I have skinny feet but have never had a pair of shoes tear at the shoestring loop. I was pretty disappointed this happened, I just tied it at the loop above the broken one and it seems to be working fine.

Comments about Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

Had the previous Mizuno Wave and loved it. They finally work out after a year and a half of volleyball 3-5x/week. Decided to get the new mizuno waves and glad I did. Great fit, comfortable, look good, great absorption (I'm 220 lbs) and great support, especially laterally.

    Comments about Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

    I bought 2 pairs volleyball shoes (wave tornado & wave lightning). my daughter really likes the wave tornado. They are a bit heavier than wave lightning but she thinks they are more suitable for players need to do a lot of jumping (eg OH & MB). We are happy with both pairs. We hope the wave tornado 7 will be lighter than the 6's.

      Comments about Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

      After a long hiatus I started playing volleyball again several times a week, 3 hours each time. I used to be 200lbs, 270lbs now. My problem, as you guessed it, I am heavy, lots of ankle, arch and toe impact resulting in the routine dose of pain the following day.I decided to look for a shoe that would support my frame and do the job. Reebok runtones: used these out of need mostly. I was looking, and looking for that indoor/volleyball shoe to fit the bill: comfort, support and price. New Balance 1034: as above, amazing running shoes, but when I tried them on the court I nearly threw my right ankle doing a dig. Mizuno Lightning 6: living in Canada (Montreal) is kind of hard to get Mizunos, especially since nobody in the US ships to Canada. Until I found [@] in Montreal. Got the lightning 6. I listened to all the online advice to get them half a size bigger. Really comfortable, soooo light and responsive, BUT, and it was a big BUT: the ankle area was just too tight. After 3 uses I had to return them and picked up the next. Mizuno Tornado 6: I returned the Lightning 6 and got the Tornado 6 size 12. That's basically a full size bigger than what I normally wear, but the fit is bang on. Lenghtwise, width, support, responsiveness, price and looks ...all made this my choice. It's great on the court. No pain, amazing support, a little heavier than the Lightning 6, but nowhere near the Asics Sensei 3. Tried the Sensei 3 but felt too stiff. Cushioning inside great, but nowhere near the "feel of the floor" you get in the Mizunos. I spent a couple hours convincing myself my gut was right, and the salesperson's good intentions (she wanted me to get the Asics) are going to get me in trouble. I picked the Tornado 6s. PERFECT VOLLEYBALL SHOE!

                          I use to have pain on my shin after playing volley ball for two days. After changing the shoe, I don't feel that anymore.

                            Great shoe to use for volleyball. These shoes are my very first Mizuno's and I was very pleased with this shoe. I would definitively buy these shoes again.

                                  I am a female volleyball player with a size 10 foot that is a bit wide. Going to a man's width court shoe has greatly helped with blisters. This Mizuno Wave Tornado shoe is great---I play middle and do a lot of jumping at the net---super support and I continue to purchase their most recent model each year.

                                  Volleyball Central was great to work with ordering the shoes on line. I live in a large metro area, but can not find this Mizuno shoe in a man's size. Greatful to find it online at a great price. Excellent phone service. Thank you~

                                  Saw it for a great price so I wanted to try it. Mizuno's top of the line court shoe. It is very stable and light weight, though it is not as comfortable as the Asic Sensei. The Asic lasted more than a year with usage three to four times a week on a racquetball/squash court. I hope these last as long too.
