Mizuno Sky Medal
The design of the Mizuno Sky Medal debuted at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics during the opening ceremony. At the event the legendary track and field athlete Carl Lewis wore them. One year after its appearance, it was first released to the public. It quickly became one of the brand's most popular sneakers. Today, the design pays tribute to '90s fashion, transforming the runner into a fashionable lifestyle model.
Coming in a variety of colorways to satisfy any taste, the upper of the sporting design features a mesh and nylon base with premium leather overlays. The 'Runbird' logo displayed on the upper's lateral represents one of the branding elements, while the tongue tag depicts the Mizuno logo. The cushioning and thick foam midsole ensures the comfort of the sneaker, while the rubber outsole makes it a long-lasting everyday choice.
The Sky Medal brings together the quality that made Mizuno a renowned brand in a sneaker designed for streetwear. At the same time, the Mondo Control and Contender are two other models from Mizuno's catalogue worth checking out. They feature the signature technologies developed by the brand for increased comfort in a running shoe disguised as a sneaker.
The Mizuno Sky Medal shoe fits true to size according to the company itself and retailers. For people with wide feet, half a size up would be recommended.
