Mizuno has announced a significant expansion into the golf footwear market with the release of five new models for 2021. The new line is set to cut a reputation for high comfort and ultra-lightweight performance, with an increased design influence from Mizuno’s acclaimed running and court shoe expertise.
With a reputation for pioneering footwear in the sporting arena and a golf heritage that dates back to 1933, Mizuno is in prime position to make an impact on the fairways in 2021. An enthusiastic reaction to Mizuno’s running-inspired Wave Cadence golf shoe in 2020 was enough for Mizuno to push the green light on the next stage of its development.
“Mizuno is in a unique position – widely respected for our running shoes, but unlike other dedicated footwear brands, we also have a passionate following amongst golfers,” said Kate Whitmore, soft goods manager for Mizuno EMEA. “This deeper footwear line-up features the perfect balance of comfort, looks and the stability needed for an efficient golf swing.”
Here’s a sneak-peek at what’s coming our way:
Mizuno Nexlite Pro (Leather)
The comfort of soft-touch leather, with the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. Streamlined looks with monochrome Runbird logo and perfectly fitted upper – the result of a centrally placed BOA closure unit. Superlight at just 270g* per shoe, taking the weight off both the joints and feet when walking 18 and beyond. RRP: $249
The Nexlite GS Spiked delivers stability in all conditions, with the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. A soft-touch fully waterproof Kurary upper is securely fitted with Mizuno’s BOA system. Super-light at just 280g per shoe, taking the weight off both the joints and feet when walking 18 and beyond. RRP: $219
Nexlite 008 BOA
Float on the fairways in the near weightless Nexlite 008. Stripped back to a breathable mesh upper and durable X10 high-traction sole, this might be the most comfortable golf shoe you’ll ever wear straight from the box. Featherlight at 235g per shoe. RRP: $199
Take a more relaxed approach to the game – or walk away in the new G-Style. Comfortable and stable, with soft-touch Kuraray upper. One-year waterproof warranty. RRP: $159.00
