Men's Mizuno Wave Daichi 8



Any surface, any distance—there are few things the Mizuno Wave Daichi 8 can’t do.

Versatile is the best way to describe this road-to-trail shoe. Mizuno Enerzy Foam cushioning keeps your runs on the pavement smooth and easy, while a rock plate in the forefoot and a Vibram Megagrip outsole give you the protection and traction you need when you hit the trails.


  • Upper: A seamless and soft woven upper with a gusseted tongue locks down your foot for a comfortable and secure fit. Plus, a shoelace pocket lets you tuck away excess laces.
  • Midsole: A Mizuno Enerzy Foam midsole gives you soft landings with high energy return. The midsole also uses a Wave construction that layers two foams with different densities for plush landings, smooth transitions and a stable feeling. There is also a rock plate in the forefoot for extra protection offroad.
  • Outsole: The Wave Daichi 8’s Vibram Megagrip outsole with 4 mm lugs gives you versatile traction when you hit the trails while still keeping your road runs smooth.

What’s New

The Wave Daichi 8 gets a major overhaul that includes a seamless knit upper and shoelace pocket for distraction-free comfort. Mizuno Enerzy Foam is used in the midsole for the first time, and an extra 2 mm of stack height in the forefoot keeps your legs feeling fresh and energized. Mizuno used a new seamless knit upper and Vibram Megagrip outsole. The Vibram Megagrip outsole is the final upgrade that makes this road shoe versatile enough to take off road.
