Mizuno’s collaboration with Hajime Sorayama concludes with the latest edition of the “WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA” being released in the US.
Peachtree Corners, GA – (June 16, 2022) – Mizuno, a global leader in lifestyle footwear, has launched the final chapter of the “WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA” series, Champagne Gold, is the last edition bringing about a successful conclusion to the “WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA” series. The “WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA” is developed by “Hajime Sorayama”, a global legend known for his work portraying the beauty of the human body and machines with his innovative and eccentric sense of realism.
The futuristic design is reminiscent of the 1978 “Sexy Robot” series produced by Mr. Sorayama and was applied to Mizuno’s original sole unit INFINITY WAVE, along with a translucent upper created with transparent resin material. This extraordinary series has received a great deal of global attention.
This latest edition makes use of the transparent texture particularly so that the entire foot can be seen through. Mr. Sorayama made this specific detailed modification with a woman’s perspective in mind.
The “WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA” brings together several of Mizuno’s structural technologies. The sole structure, which features Mizuno’s uniquely evolved sole unit INFINITY WAVE has been updated under the supervision of Hajime Sorayama featuring translucent elements in the midsole and was designed with the vision of sneakers floating in the air.
The futuristic translucent upper is made of permeable resin and contains a champagne gold Runbird logo. Metallic components are used on the heel, and the “SORAYAMA” logo is dropped on the inside of the sole as evidence of the design by “Hajime Sorayama”.
The final chapter of “WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA”, is an artistic blend of the structural design of “Mizuno” accompanied by the unique realism style of “Hajime Sorayama”, and has already been launched globally but will release in the US on June 21, 2022.
