Inspired by the old Waraji sandals used by foot soldiers and samurai class in feudal-era Japan, Mizuno's BE shoes feature an activation sockliner which replicates functions of the Waraji sandal.

The new Mizuno kicks allow the toes to move naturally up and down, or to curl and grip, and activates the foot muscles. This activation helps strengthen two main muscles across the base of the foot--the flexor digital longus and the flexor hallucis longus--to provide its wearers with more propulsive strength to improve running. The natural oblique allows the toes to spread as if barefoot, which stabilizes naturally.

The Be includes a unique heel construction provided by a dynamic foot counter (DFC) heel cup  that maximizes the natural cushioning of your heel pad fat, and a low profile EVA midsole offers protection and cushioning. The soft, synthetic suede upper adds on comfort and ventilation.
