Mizuno Wave Rider 1S
Mizuno takes a deep dive into Japanese heritage with a pack inspired by the animals that populated its folklore. Artist and illustrator Kenatrou Tanaka collaborated on this pack, giving it the oniric and contemporary feel which is typical of his art. Particular attention has been paid to details, such as colour schemes and materials, making this pack rich and textured. This Wave Rider 1’s soft silhouette comes in an edgy green, is inspired by frogs. These creatures are often used in poetry and art, and are sometimes carried by travellers to make sure they return home safely from their journeys. The word ‘frog’ in Japanese means ‘return’, which is why the frog is considered a Japanese lucky animal and seen as good fortune in things returning.
