Featuring all of the best qualities of every Wave Rider to come before it, the Wave Rider 15 is the pinnacle of the Mizuno runner shoe line. This cushioned running shoe provides the perfect harmonious balance of lightweight feel, wrapped-around-the-foot fit and an exquisitely smooth ride.
The Wave Rider is the shoe that put Wave® Technology on the map. Mizuno’s patented Wave Technology was inspired by it’s namesake: waves. From sound waves to tidal waves, nature dissipates impact forces quickly and efficiently. Wave Technology uses that same theory to dissipate the impact shock created when running.
As your foot hits the ground, Wave redirects and thereby reduces the impact forces away from your foot, much like a car’s suspension. Wave is lightweight, extremely durable and incredibly responsive, making it the ideal system for runners of every level.
Mizuno has spent much time and energy on research to create the best-fitting, best performing footwear. Gender Engineering — a design technology incorporated into all Mizuno running shoes — adjusts running shoes so that they more closely fit the different running styles of the male and female runner, and as a result, maximizing performance.
