PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A WAREHOUSE CLEARANCE ITEM AND IS FINAL SALE.
As swift as wind, as silent as forest, as fierce as fire, as unshakeable as mountain. So goes the Samurai battle standard "Furinkazan" for which Mizuno's latest offering is named. Replacing the popular Ascend series, the Kazan maintains go-anywhere runability that will take you across windy plains, through lush old growth forests, and even up volcanoes. Ready to take on the most technical trails the world over thanks to a rugged outsole, the Kazan offers moderate door to trail comfort as well.
In the Kazan, Mizuno has done away with the medial post found on the Ascend. Yes, you heard right: the Kazan is a fully neutral shoe! The Wave Plate has however been flipped over and made concave at the heel to allow for some extra support at landing. So for those of you who spend your lives in the mountains - say hello to your new companion - you're going to have a lot of fun adventures together.
