Mizuno follows Karhu and releases a pack inspired by natural wonders.
Nomad; a wonderer of the earth. This pack is an ode to the free spirits and travelers. The nomad pack is inspired by the highlands of Iceland, a serene nature area that looks unreal. Icy plains cover the landscape and reflect light. This translates into the icy shades of the sneakers. The green stripes are a small reference to Yosemite Park Valley, located in Nevada, USA. The state that gives us Las Vegas and the strip is also known for its beautiful nature. Yosemite means killer in Mewok's. A killer sneaker.
This pack comes in three models; the Wave Mujin TL, Wave Prophecy, and Wave Rider Beta. The Wave Mujin TL adopts the initials of Vietnamese designer Tuan Lee. This design combines vintage sneaker sketches (Tuan's specialty), with a Michelin sole for grip. The Wave Prophecy 8 is a new silhouette from Mizuno. Futuristic and a bit like walking on clouds. The Wave Rider Beta speaks for itself, an old faithful of the brand.
