As the bigger sibling of Mizuno’s two-shoe trail relaunch, the Kazan is both protective and well-cushioned in a dampening, not bouncy sort of way. As such, it makes a great training shoe for higher mileage runners and would also serve well for ultradistance races, given its relative light weight.
The Kazan, however, offers better protection, especially for heel-strikers and runners who spend some time on dirt roads. The outsole has enough edge to bite when you need it, while the flexible forefoot delivers a responsive toe-off on firm surfaces.
