Mizuno Wave Precision 3 £59.99

Posted: 9 October 2000

This model may still be available on clearance. But we've reviewed a newer version since we published this.

Weight 295g
Evaluation When the Precision was introduced two years ago, it immediately became one of the best performance training shoes on the market and the flagship of an impressive Mizuno range. This is the second update of the Precision, and the changes are fortunately not major ones. Mizuno has tweaked the upper to improve the fit and added a blown rubber forefoot. Overall, the Precision is also lighter, and provides better toe spring, thanks to its more cushioned blown rubber outsole.
Our weartesters had nothing but positive feedback about the new Precision, and particularly noted the lighter weight and pick-up. The Precision is ideal for fast running or racing, with good flexibility and support.
In short Light, fast and smooth. A quick everyday trainer or racer for the biomechanically efficient runner, in a new, lighter package.

are you sure this is a new shoe? the Precision's been around for quite a while and is widely available - nice shoe as well BTW.

Achilles... They brought out a new, lighter version this summer (apparently) along with the Legend etc...

September... If you can't find a copy, just pop into Sainsbury's in Tooting... They're a bit late on the ol' RWs

Jon is correct, the Wave Precision was totally updated for the AW2002 season, but as Achilles stated has been around as a product for some time.

It was bought by retailers relatively well for the AW02 season so should be widely available. If you have any problems you can contact Mizuno customer services on a freephone number;

0800 3280180.

..and they should be able to direct you to your nearest stockist.
