    I just bought a Wave Fang from Sohubuy and I was able to use them two times already. I'm wondering though why is the logo in the insole of the left shoe already scraped off? Is it just really low quality insole material or what? Here is the picture of the left shoe:

    Also, why is there no logo in the right shoe, here is its picture:

    I heard that Sohubuy sells 100% genuine Mizuno shoes but why is this happening? Anyone can help me?

    Thanks.

    Actually they aren't very sweaty, my hands are but not my feet.

    So this is normal?

    hmm...does it really matter? the logo will go eventually and has absolutely NO effect on performance or comfort once so ever right?

    Well, not really, I'm just curious.

    Regarding insoles, which Superfeet model is the best for these shoes?

    Hi Kevin,

    It looks like it could have been a lot of fraction contact to cause it to come off that fast. You mentioned that the right shoe never had the logo to begin with? Normally both insoles have them. Also interesting, is that both insoles appear to be missing the shoe size logo which would have been just below the logo unless it has come off.

    Provided are my pictures.

    Here is the pic of the label:

    I remember seeing the same code format in the Mizuno shoes that are available in our local sports shops and I also see the ones that has the "JP" code in it. I'm just not really 100% sure about this and I have to go to these shops again to confirm.

    Maybe there is a JP and a non-JP version of Mizuno shoes? And the JP shoes have insoles that lasts longer?

    Yes there is no logo in the right shoes and there are no size codes in both shoes. Like I said above, maybe there are two versions of Mizuno shoes. What do you think?

    Also, I've noticed that the pictures of your USED shoes have logos that are also scraped off but at least the scraping effect was approximately equal throughout the logo unlike mine that the letters in the right part of the logo are completely peeled off and gone.

    This is fishy.

    Care to reply to this thread and explain the difference? Because I'm having bad thoughts about this purchase but until it is proven I will stay calm.

    That's weird my tongue code has GS 1209 on it, yours has GS 1109, what could be the difference?

    Well, My left foot got strained the first time I've used the shoes but Inthink that's because the design of the Wave Fang has less arch support for me. I need to change to superfeet insoles.
