Mizuno and the Rijksmuseum bring Art and running together, crafting the new official shoe of the TCS Amsterdam Marathon: the Wave Ultima 11 Amsterdam, a real piece of art. Inspired by the famous painting “The Night Watch” (“De Nachtwacht”), a masterpiece by Rembrandt van Rijn, this running shoe honours the 350th anniversary from Rembrandt’s death.
Mizuno Corporation & TCS Amsterdam Marathon established their partnership in 2000 and, ever since, they have been strengthening their bond, merging together passion for running and celebration of culture.
The Mizuno Wave Ultima 11 Amsterdam is inspired by Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch”. On the upper of the shoe you see a similar use of light and shadows, the Claire-Obscure technique, while fragments of the famous painting are pictured on the insole.
