Mizuno Pushes Athlete Performance and Comfort with New Tennis Footwear

Mizuno shatters expectations and pushes tennis and pickleball athletes to exceed goals and crush the competition with the new Wave Exceed SL 2 AC. Built for hours of competitive play out on the court, the Wave Exceed SL 2 AC delivers both superior comfort and lightweight agility thanks to the flexibility in the breathable mesh upper and the softness of its highly cushioned insole.

Last year, tennis saw record participation with a reported 3 million new players, and pickleball was recognized as the fastest-growing sport in America. The increased participation and interest in the two fast-paced, exciting sports mean players face stiffer competition than ever. Both sports require players to practice and play for extended hours on their feet – leading to quicker exhaustion and discomfort especially when it comes to their footwear. Even in pickleball where the court is significantly smaller, athletes need the proper equipment to pivot and grip the court and provide the best spring to react and make moves to defeat their competition.

Mizuno’s newest technology works to eliminate non-game distractions such as discomfort with shoes and propel athletes to reach beyond the status quo to play their best game. Featuring the brand’s most popular MIZUNO WAVE® Technology, the Wave Exceed SL 2 AC provides the added spring and a wider fit, keeping comfortability and performance top of mind.

Players who also loved the Wave Exceed Tour 4 AC, first released in 2020, can now lace up in three new colorways. While it’s not built for pickleball play, this shoe enables athletes to pivot and accelerate at max speeds bringing unmatched explosiveness to their tennis game. Also equipped with MIZUNO WAVE® Technology, it’s lightweight, fast, built with ankle stability, and provides the shock re-distribution needed for those high-performance players.

Other technologies and standout features found in these tennis shoes include:

  • D-Flex Groove in the mid-foot enables greater flexibility and the ability to turn at greater speeds by efficiently transferring natural body movements and shifts in direction.
  • U4icX, a light evolutionary insole board, delivering a more comfortable, cushioned ride with higher rebound and a more energized experience underfoot.
  • DuRubber for enhanced durability against wear and tear of the outsole – an upgrade from previous models.
  • PoWnCe, an exceedingly lightweight midsole material, with excellent comfort and resilience properties.

Feel the comfort on your feet, but also in your wallet with Mizuno’s its 30-Day Delight Guarantee on both models. Take the shoes for a spin, test them out in your style of play, and be comforted with being able to exchange or return within 30 days of the original purchase date if not completely satisfied. There’s also a  6-Month Outsole Guarantee available on the Wave Exceed Tour 4 AC only. Visit the website for full details on the outsole warranty.
