The Ultima 4 keeps the same simple formula of great cushioning and support but has been upgraded with Mizuno’s premium midsole polymer AP+, which delivers an even springier cushioned and durable ride. Cushioning is maximised through generous pads of VS-1 shock-absorbing compound in the forefoot and heel.In addition, the forefoot sole has been specifically engineered to be as versatile as its owner so the Ultima 4 is equally at home on roads, grass, or canal tow paths. The Parallel Wave inside the Ultima 4 contributes to this versatility, uniformly dispersing shock throughout the sole and providing excellent cushioning along with enhanced stability.Not only has the technology pushed forward, the fit has been enhanced with all Ultima 4 upper materials upgraded to provide Mizuno’s signature super-comfortable and supportive fit. All in all the result is a shoe that is packed with performance and value, ideal for neutral runners and moderate pronators alike.
