The Wave Sky Waveknit is a neutral running shoe that you can wear for everyday training or some up-tempo workouts.

Mizuno Running Shoe Technology

About Mizuno Running Shoes

The iconic Mizuno Runbird logo is as recognizable as any brand in the world. Tagging shoes since 1982, the swooping, graceful bird symbolizes speed—something it proved with a World Record 100-meter dash in 1991.

Today, the Runbird flashes its attitude above the popular Wave technology in Mizuno shoes, a staple in the running industry. The Wave technology in Mizuno running shoes takes different forms to achieve different characteristics:

  • Parallel Wave. Mizuno uses Parallel Wave technology in its neutral running shoes. The shape works with the natural movement of your foot to deliver a smooth ride, and its structure naturally disperses impact evenly throughout the midsole.
  • Fan Wave. Mizuno's Fan Wave creates support for overpronators. Used in Mizuno's stability shoes, the Fan Wave uses waves of different heights to guide and stabilize your foot.
  • Foam Wave. The newest iteration of Mizuno's Wave technology, the Foam Wave uses only foam to create different sensations. The shapes of the waves influence the ride, creating either a cushioned, neutral effect or a stability effect.

Mizuno has been outfitting athletes for more than 100 years, and with events like the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta and ProjectZero shoes aimed at ending breast cancer, it’s ready for 100 more.
