Details
The Mizuno Wave Tornado 8 Men's Volleyball Shoes are the latest edition of the popular Wave Tornado line of Men's Volleyball Shoes from Mizuno, featuring an updated design and new color scheme for the 2012 club season while retaining all the technologies that made past Wave Tornado Men's Volleyball Shoes a success around the world. The Wave Tornado 8 Men's Volleyball Shoes feature Mizuno's revolutionary, volleyball specific full-length Pebax Mizuno Wave technology to provide superior stability and cushioning when jumping and landing. The Mizuno 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 Men's Wave Tornado 8 Volleyball Shoes also feature an enhanced AP midsole, which offers increased rebound and cushion durability while maintaining lightweight performance. Weighing just 12.3 ounces, the Wave Tornado 8 provides superior stability and cushioning in an incredibly lightweight design. The shock-absorbing cushioning compound found in the forefoot provides for superior cushioning when landing, while Mizuno Dynamotion Fit technology relieves the stress the foot naturally places on footwear, eliminating distortion for 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. The Wave Tornado 8 Men's Volleyball Shoes also feature a full-length midsole ventilation system to help reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe during play, keeping the foot cool, dry and comfortable at all times. The abrasion-resistant collar lining provides for improved durability and comfort, while the enhanced outsole rubber provides superior traction and flexibility on the court, allowing for quick cuts and movements without slipping.

The Wave Tornado 8 Men's Volleyball Shoes also utilize a triple-layered mesh upper to provide the utmost in breathability and comfort, while providing improved ventilation throughout the sole unit to keep the foot cool and comfortable. The Mizuno Wave Tornado 8 Volleyball Shoes continue to offer cutting-edge technology from Mizuno, and are an ideal choice for volleyball players looking for a more secure, stable fit that provides serious cushioning and support without weighing them down.

    Comments about Mizuno Wave Tornado 8 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

    I use these shoes for racquetball. I regularly play tournaments in the Open division. The shoes fit really well and provide tons of support for all directions of movement. They do seem to run a about a half size small for me. I am normally in a 10.5 but had to return them for 10s. I also bought a pair of Tornado 7's for my daughter to play travel Volleyball. She just loves the shoes also. she has had ankle issues in the past. They provide good support for her as well.

    Comments about Mizuno Wave Tornado 8 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

    Purchased the Tornado 8 to replace my 7's which wore out after about 250-300 hours of aggressive indoor play. The differences seem to be minimal. The Tornado 8 remains an excellent volleyball shoe. They are extremely lightweight while remaining supportive. The sole incorporates very soft rubber, offering outstanding grip at the cost of longevity. Ventilation is excellent - there is even venting through the arch (which caught me by surprise when I stepped in a puddle, and the water came right up through!)

    The limited lifespan of these shoes is offset by the edge they offer in performance. Because of wear issues, I highly recommend limiting their use to court time. They are not suited to general use as other less specialized trainers might be.

      I bought these to replace an older pair of volleyball shoes that had stretched out a bit from aggressive use. These Mizunos fit perfect and felt great the first time wearing, no breaking in. Good sticky traction, lightweight and comfortable.

          I am a club player and liked the shoes initially but they were really snug through the middle. After two weeks I started getting a lot of pain when standing in them. Now I am forced to go buy other shoes since the pain is getting worse when I wear these shoes.

              The shoes are perfect. I wore a pair of Asics size 8s which fit perfectly and decided to give Mizuno a try. The Mizuno 8s did not fit so I had to exchange for 8.5s which fit perfectly. Volleyball central exchanged without a problem! Five stars!

              Shoes are excellent and better than the Asics which were the same price.

                      I tracked these shoes for about a month until they were finally released. I owned a pair of Asics prior to my purchase and after snagging these, I could not be more satisfied! Very light shoes with a sleek sporty design..my only concern is the grip seems a bit thin and so I wonder how long these will last. I consistently play competitive volleyball so they're constantly used and for long periods of time..but so far so good. I would say despite them being high priced shoes, the overall quality backs the price. Definitively recommended to my teammates. If you have never purchased a pair of Mizunos, make sure you know your exact size. Best of luck!

                        Took them right out of the box and played a game with them. Great support and tons of spring. Part way through the match I noticed a little discomfort towards the top of the shoe by the tongue on the inside of my ankle. Played a tournament and 10 matches with them 3 days later and didn't notice a thing. I would give them a few matches and they should feel like a slipper!! They have definately put a little more spring in my jump compared to the running sneaks I was playing with. I would absolutely buy them again.

                          Love the wave tornado series, and I have owned every pair. These are by far the best, and love the green/black color.
