Mizuno ditches pink with new line

Mizuno has launched their latest range of netball trainers, offering players of all ages and abilities a stylish new look as they take to the court in the new year – and a chance to ditch traditional pink.

Mizuno’s latest range of specialist netball shoes are now available in a range of eye-catching new colour schemes including; Cool Blue, White and Black, Blue Caracao and Dark Shadow. 

The firms stays it’s attempting to create something different for netballers, the new colourways move away from the commonly used pink found in most netball shoes, instead helping players stand out on court through a range of vibrant colours. 

Mizuno’s range of netball trainers includes four adult products – Stealth, Mirage, Phantom and Thunder Blade – and one junior shoe, all developed around the needs and requirements of the varying positions on the court. The trainers include revolutionary wave technology that offers players unrivalled cushioning, improved agility and greater stability. 

The products have also been designed to provide netballers with the greatest level of support to help reduce the likelihood of suffering knee and ankle injuries.

The stability and comfort provided by Mizuno’s trainers make them the ideal netball shoe for those looking to get back to netball in the new year, as well as those looking to try the game for the first time. 

Graham Johnson, UK Marketing Manager for Mizuno, said: “We’re very excited to unveil our new range of Mizuno netball trainers, which will give netballers an even greater choice when it comes to the look and feel of the shoes they play in.

“With support, stability and durability at the heart of what we do, Mizuno continues to develop netball trainers that can both improve the comfort and performance of netballers on court, whilst reducing the likelihood of serious injury.”

The launch of the latest range coincides with Mizuno’s new video release, part of the brand’s #MakeTheSwap campaign. 

Despite being the UK’s number one female participation sport, with over 1.4 million women and girls playing netball in a typical season, an extraordinary 70 per cent of netballers aren’t wearing the correct shoes for the sport. #MakeTheSwap aims to educate netballers to make the right footwear choices for their sport, encouraging players to wear trainers that provide the necessary grip and support for the quick, dynamic movements needed in the game.
