The new Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris is HERE! Continuing with Mizuno’s incredible style, the Evo Cursoris takes on an almost lizard like look. Said to be inspired by the Eudibamus Cursoris this fast looking shoe’s performance seems to match it’s incredible style. The main features of the Evo Cursoris are it’s zero drop platform, wide toe box, and 12mm cushioned mid-sole. I believe Mizuno’s delayed entrance into the minimalist market has allowed them to spend extra time looking at the market and see what has worked for other companies and integrate some specific features into the Evo series with of course the Mizuno looks and feel.
After taking my first run I was pleasantly surprised how soft they were for their weight. The 7.5 oz weight for the men’s size 9 gives a nice light-weight feel, with enough substance of protection for the foot. Also, the flat-bottomed forefoot design coupled with a wider platform provides stability and assurance from foot strike to toe-off. A fairly efficient, quicker runner should have no problem using them for a marathon. However, If you are not already used to wearing a minimalist type shoe I would proceed with caution and ease into them like you would any other minimalist shoe.
