Men's Neutral Running Shoes (Click to see Women's Version)
The Wave Rider is the workhorse in Mizuno’s stable of road running shoes.
This year, Mizuno redesigned the shape of the Wave plate inside the Wave Rider 22 for a softer, smoother ride than the previous version. Engineers also added perforations around the plate for a more cushioned experience when your heel hits the ground.
Dual-layered engineered mesh up top makes the shoe lighter, too, cutting the men’s Wave Rider 22 to just 9.6 ounces. With thoughtful updates, the refreshed Wave Rider remains a confident runner for as many miles as your legs can handle.
