“Mizuno consistently takes initiative to protect the environment,” said Mizuno USA's Director of Marketing of Athletic Footwear, Rod Foley. “By being the first in Athletic Footwear industry to use Pebax Rnew, we continue to exemplify our commitment to managing the limited resources that the Earth provides.”
