Have not you ever thought like this before?

 

 

"What are shoes for racewalking?"

 

 

So I will introduce the shoes for racewalking I have worn so far.

 

 

And points about selecting them.

 


This is the shoes I usually wear for racewalking training and racing.

 


The shoe's name is “WAVE EMPEROR JAPAN” product by mizuno.

When I was 21 years old, mizuno was the production of “WAVE SPACER GL” was stopped.

 


However at the same time “WAVE EMPEROR JAPAN” was created as a waypoint between “WAVE SPASER GL” and “WAVE CRUISE”.

 


Therefore I decided to wear  “WAVR EMPEROR JAPAN”.

 


Also I was wearing below shoes when I was high school student.

These shoes ware very good for race walking.

 

 


When I select shoes for racewalking, I am careful about the following points.

 


1. Thickness of sole


The thin is good than too thick in case of racewalking.


You might think like this “Thin sole leads to low load on foot”.


However racewalking is low load compared to running.


It is no significant impact.


Conversely like that shoes may cause injury.


Therefor, you should choose thin sole.

 



2. The fit on the underside of the foot.


I focus on fit of on the underside of the foot and shoes sole.


When I tried on “WAVE EKIDEN”, I felt not fitting.


Because it was produced with emphasis on grounding of outside foot.


Repulsive force from the larger ground is necessary to racewalking.


To get larger repulsive force, you should choose fit of on the underside of the foot and shoes sole.

 

 

 


The following are some of the shoes that racewalking athletes are often wearing.

MIZUNO:WAVE CRUISE,WAVE EMPEROR
ASICS:SORTIEJAPAN,SORTIEMAGIC, TARTHER
ADIDAS:TAKUMI SEN
