Mizuno may be best known for their fantastic looking and performing irons, but the Japanese manufacturer are seeking to branch out further in the golf equipment world by expanding into the golf footwear market for 2021, as well as updating their apparel range for the summer months.
If you're a keen sports fan, you'll know that they have a rich and impressive history in creating some of the world's best sports footwear across the likes of football, rugby and athletics, and so the prospect of them branching out into golf shoes is an exciting one. Mizuno themselves saw a positive reaction to their Wave Cadence shoe last year, and that was enough to persuade them to take things one step further with a full lineup in 2021.
Mizuno is in a unique position - widely respected for our running shoes, but unlike other dedicated footwear brands, we also have a passionate following amongst golfers. This deeper footwear line-up features the perfect balance of comfort, looks and the stability needed for an efficient golf swing.

Mizuno SS21 Footwear Range
- Mizuno Nexlite Pro (Leather)
"The comfort of soft-touch leather, with the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. Streamlined looks with monochrome Runbird logo and perfectly fitted upper – the result of a centrally placed BOA closure unit. Superlight at just 270g* per shoe, taking the weight off both the joints and feet when walking 18 and beyond."
"The Nexlite GS Spiked delivers stability in all conditions, with the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. A soft-touch fully waterproof Kurary upper is securely fitted with Mizuno’s BOA system. Superlight at just 280g* per shoe, taking the weight off both the joints and feet when walking 18 and beyond."
- Mizuno Nexlite GS Spikeless
"The Nexlite GS Spikeless brushes the scales at a featherlight 235g per shoe* but delivers the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. A soft-touch fully waterproof Kurary upper is securely fitted with Mizuno’s BOA system. A hard-wearing X10 rubber sole maintains a secure grip in all but the wettest conditions."
"Float the fairways in the near weightless Nexlite 008. Stripped back to a breathable mesh upper and durable X10 high-traction sole, this might be the most comfortable golf shoe you’ll ever wear straight from the box. Featherlight at 235g per shoe."
"Take a more relaxed approach to the game - or walk way in the new G-Style. Comfortabe and stable, with soft-touch Kuraray upper."
Mizuno SS21 Apparel Range
It's not all just shoes though, as Mizuno have also announced a whole host of clothing options for the ensuing season which are said to provide technical performance and contemporary styling throughout.
Mizuno's Move Tech features across the range - a four way-stretch, anatomically patterned fabric, allowing for added freedom of movement throughout the golf swing. For hotter days, the Quick Dry Plus technology rapidly absorbs and diffuses moisture from the body to leave you feeling cooler and more comfortable.
"A lightweight summer polo with classic look and Mizuno's iconic Runbird motif on collar and yoke."
- Move Tech Quick Dry Polo Plus
"Features the Runbird motif on the chest and yoke, while subtle piping on the collar plus ribbed collar and cuffs complete the look."
"Offer athletic and contemporary styling. It's soft to touch and extremely lightweight."
"Presents a tour-inspired look through a modern palette of grey, navy, black and red."
"Delivers a modern look with retro twist thanks to its sublimated print."
"The sublimated print here creates a contemporary two-tone style."
"An elegant and simple outer layer. Featuring a lightweight, thin material, it's an ideal garment when the temperature drops slightly."
"Offers wind protection and water repellency. It's a go-to garment in changeable conditions. With subtle pockets and Runbird motif on chest and yoke, it's a stylish as well as practical item."
"Ideal if conditions worsen further. It's lightweight and offers protection without compromising on structure or range of movement. It offers wind protection and water repellency while the gently elasticated cuffs ensure maximum comfort. Like the Windlite Gilet, it features subtle pockets and the Runbird motif on chest and yoke."
