Mizuno Wave Rider 23


The Mizuno Wave Rider 23 is as dependable and smooth as ever.

Mizuno gave the shoe a simple, sleek upper for a clean look, and it has an accommodating fit that’s ready for as many miles as you are. Underneath, designers kept the same combination of U4ic and U4icX for a firm and responsive ride.

In our review of the Mizuno Wave Rider 23, Fleet Feet testers loved the updated look and consistent heel-to-toe transition of the newest edition.

Lace up the latest Wave Rider for a reliable run, mile after mile.

Great Upgrade from the Wave Rider 22

Upgraded to these from the Mizuno Wave Rider 22 after they had ~400 miles on them (I weigh 200 pounds so I felt like those held up well considering). These feel substantially better, look sleeker, and are an all around great shoe! I have a long thin and somewhat flat foot and they fit great.

Great shoes for trail and pavement

I love these shoes! I needed a trail running shoe, but can also work on the pavement and these are great! They are very comfortable, I don’t have any knee pain. Really a great shoe.

Just like the wave rider 12-14. Exactly, what I wanted. One of my favorite shoes.
