Hajime Sorayama Readies Mizuno Wave Prophecy 10 in "Champagne Gold"

Following special-edition “Dark Grey” and “Silver” takes on the Wave Prophecy 10 released earlier last year, Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama serves up a final iteration of his futuristic Mizuno footwear collaboration in “Champagne Gold/White.” Arriving in a sleek metallic design reminiscent of Sorayama’s sexy robot series, the upcoming WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA arrives in white semi-translucent uppers, with matte gold accents along the eyestays and lateral RunBird logos, and metallic pieces secured on the heel counter.

Below, Sorayama’s custom “INFINITY WAVE” sole unit consists of a mirrored gold top plate sandwiched with a milky rubber outsole that arches over the heel. The gold plating is visible through bottom cutouts while scaling air pockets on the midsoles offer reactive lightweight cushioning.

“Having a date today! Sneakers for a special occasion! That’s the concept,” Sorayama said of the silhouette in a prior interview.

The new WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA colorway will be released in advance at 2G May 7, and at select retailers globally on May 14.
