The Mizuno Wave Rider is a favorite among runners due to its perfect blend of bouncy cushion and reliable support.
The Mizuno projectZERO Wave Rider is built on a bed of responsive ENERZY foam, providing an energized ride mile after mile. The bouncy foam wraps around Mizuno’s signature Wave plate, which offers solid support to ensure seamless transitions.
The result is an effortlessly smooth ride that feels supportive even on extra long runs.
Our reviewers noticed the responsive energy return and snappy feel of the shoe.
“They feel stable and cushioned enough to wear during recovery runs, but they definitely have a bit of a kick if you want to pick up the pace,” says one reviewer.
An X10 rubber outsole provides impressive traction, so you can enjoy these shoes on slick roads without fear of falling.
The outsole also offers exceptional durability, preventing uneven wear that can occur with overpronation. Flat outsole geometry promotes stable landings so you can run more efficiently.
“While these shoes are technically categorized as neutral, I felt like they offer enough stability for someone needing a bit of extra guidance,” one reviewer says.
