POWER CUSHION 65Z 2 Wide Unisex (Dark Marine)
The Yonex Power Cushion 65 Z2 has an improved fit and added stability that make this one of Yonex's flagship all-around shoes. The synthetic upper features a Lateral Shell located on the outside of the forefoot to prevent sliding at the edge of the sole. The upper also features a Seamless Design without stitching for a more natural fit. At its core the 65 Z2 has Power Cushion+ which provides improved cushioning and comfort from standard Power Cushion. Yonex updated its flagship shoe technology by incorporating more resin into Power Cushion+ for increased cushioning and repulsion without sacrificing the lightness of the shoe. The unique shape of Power Cushion+ is a shaped reticular pattern with consistent spacing and depth to allow each channel to change shape on impact for increased cushioning and return back to its original shape for increased repulsion. Overall, the Yonex Power Cushion 65 Z2 delivers excellent comfort with stability for a players that want an all-performance shoe.
By adding a special elastic resin to POWER CUSHION, while maintaining the conventional lightweight properties, high shock absorption is realized. Grooves designed in a lattice pattern, with optimum spacing and depth, achieve further resilience. Compared with conventional cushioning material, the new POWER CUSHION+ boasts 28% more shock absorption and 62% more repulsion.
