After impressing last month with the new Supersonic Wave III, Mizuno are returning to give their landmark ‘power’ boot a fresh look on the Mizuno Wave Ignitus II – White / Red.
Looking as deadly as you’d expect a Power boot to look, the Mizuno Wave Ignitus II – White / Red is decked out in the colours of the homeland of Mizuno, Japan.
As such, it’s no surprise to see free-kick expert and Mukaiten master Keisuke Honda as the main man behind the new Mizuno Wave Ignitus II – White / Red, which he’ll be expected to wear during the new Russian Premier League starts it’s 2012-13 season.
Whilst the classic Morelia has always been a favourite, it was the 2010 Wave Ignitus that helped bring Mizuno’s boots into the 21st century, with a whole host of features that cater to the modern footballer.
Mizuno caught the attention of many with it’s unique ‘Mukaiten’ panel; a signature feature on the Wave Ignitus which is designed to put minimum spin on the ball. The result is a strike that can dip and swerve unpredictably, described as a goalkeeper’s worst nightmare.
In addition, contrasting swerve zones across the forefoot give the Mizuno Wave Ignitus II – White / Red a unique look, whilst offering superb contact with the ball when striking and crossing.
The Wave Ignitus also refined the Carbon Fibre soleplate of the Wave Shinken range to help reduce weight (260g, by the way) and add energy return, whilst a triple-density Pebax heel counter uses a unique construction to offer superb stability.
However, tradition wasn’t entirely done away with on the Wave Ignitus, as the famous Mizuno K-Leather makes up the majority of the boot to give great feel and touch.
Available to buy from today, the Mizuno Wave Ignitus II – White / Red will set you back around £130
