JOURNEY ARTWORK

JOURNEY ARTWORK

Designed by indigenous artist Rheanna Lotter, the Journey artwork consists of circles representing the states and territories of Australia, tracks between them representing the interconnectedness of athletes from different backgrounds, and boomerangs highlighting the challenges the athletes have faced as they headed towards the Paralympic games with determination and competitive spirit.


WAVE PLATE TECHNOLOGY

WAVE PLATE TECHNOLOGY

Wave Plate Technology delivers smooth feeling stability without increasing weight, adding integrity to the midsole foam and creating a more propulsive transition.

Greater medial, lateral and torsional support compensate for the thicker and softer midsole to maintain a stable ride.

INCREASED COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE

INCREASED COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE

MIZUNO ENERZY foam used throughout the entire midsole enhances comfort and delivers even more energy return for a more efficient ride.


ADAPTABLE AND DYNAMIC UPPER

ADAPTABLE AND DYNAMIC UPPER

Updated Smooth Stretch Woven upper is lighter weight and more breathable for an enhanced fit that expertly adapts to the shape of your foot throughout the run.

PROPULSIVE FOREFOOT GEOMETRY

PROPULSIVE FOREFOOT GEOMETRY

A single vertical flex groove throughout the forefoot decreases flexibility and increases responsiveness, enhancing the propulsive feel from midstance to toe-off. 

STABLE NEUTRAL

The stable neutral midsole construction with Wave Plate technology makes the Wave Rider 27 an ideal shoe for medical referrals and for those  using an orthotic device.

ABOUT THE JOURNEY

The artwork is made up of 8 circles to represent Australia’s 8 states and territories and also represents the diversity of our country and our athletes and where they come from. Each circle is different to represent the diversity of our country and our athletes, and are primarily in green and gold to represent our land. 

The circles have tracks between them to indicate the journey and the creation of interconnectedness between the athletes coming from different places and backgrounds, and the animal spirits guiding the journey and protecting the athletes. The boomerangs appear  randomly to show the challenges, barriers and setbacks faced and overcome as part of the journey process.
