KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is Mizuno Drylite. This breathable material is utilized on Mizuno apparel for sports including running, baseball, golf, and volleyball. No matter the activity, Mizuno Drylite is designed to keep athletes cool and comfortable.
What is it? A hydrophilic dual-density yarn knitted material which provides moisture wicking for a range of activities. Drylite is utilized on performance tops, basebell helmets, catchers knee wedges, and more.
How does it work? It all starts with the epidermal skin layer, which helps to maintain an optimal body temperature and fight moisture from the jump. When moisture begins to inevitably build, it's quickly absorbed by fabric and pushed away from the body to the garment's outer surface, the hydrophilic layer. There, moisture is finally evaporated, resulting in a dry, comfortable feel.

KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is Mizuno Dynamotion Fit. This upper construction is designed to mirror the foot’s natural movement during running, resulting in a second skin-like feel. By providing a secure fit that maintains a free range of motion, Mizuno Dynamotion Fit quite literally works with the runner’s feet.
What is it? An upper constructed with Mizuno Flex Eyelets and Stretch Mesh. Together, the two components help to influence natural motion as opposed to bulky, constrictive materials which can hold runners back.
How does it work? As the foot bends, twists, and stretches, Dynamotion Fit follows suit by mimicking the movements. The Mizuno Flex Eyelets help to lock down the heel during stride, allowing the upper to stretch and contract as needed. Meanwhile, Stretch Mesh delivers a contoured fit which helps to combat bunching, pulling, and sliding, ensuring that the foot is comfortable from toe-off to heel strike.
