Men's Neutral Running Shoes (Click to see Women's Version)
Mizuno’s most popular shoe just got better. Again.
The Mizuno Wave Rider 21 improved on last year’s model with breezier mesh to keep your feet fresh and more durable rubber underfoot. But Mizuno’s Wave technology is still the star of the shoe because of the way it disperses shock and creates a smooth transition from touchdown to takeoff.
The new midsole is lighter and softer than previous versions, too, but it’ll still keep you from feeling like you’re trudging through sand, or as one Fleet Feet tester put it in our Mizuno shoe review, “It's perfect for the runner who likes to feel cushioned and supported without feeling like they're landing on marshmallows.”
Weight: 9.6 oz (Wave Rider men's), 8.3 oz (Wave Rider women's)
