The men's Waveknit R2 from Mizuno was designed to adapt to your feet as you run.

Mizuno constructed the Waveknit with an all-new knit upper, forgoing traditional reinforcements and using varying thread qualities to offer support in some areas and stretch in others. The breathable knit gives you a stable and comfortable feel without adding unnecessary weight or features.

A plush heel collar cradles your ankle, and Cloudwave technology provides more cushioning and guidance for your feet. Designers also paired Mizuno’s cushy midsole foam with an exaggerated lateral crash pad for a teensy weight and buttery ride.

The ProjectZero edition of the Waveknit was made exclusively for Fleet Feet to help raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, whose mission is to prevent and cure the disease. For each pair sold, Mizuno will donate $10 to the BCRF to help reach its goal: ending breast cancer for good.

Good, good feeling

I purchased the Mizuno waveknit R2 shoes recently. They are a very good ride. My only wish is that they came in a narrower width. I have a size B width and the shoes only come in a D width. They are a narrow D, if there was a C width I think that is what they would be. We have a 5K SOS run coming up in a couple weeks in Seattle.

Mizuno Waveknit R2 ProjectZero Edition men’s

I’ve been wearing Wave Riders for the last 5 years. These have the same great fit and generous cushioning. The sock like upper makes this an even more comfortable shoe for running or just as a casual choice for daily wear. I highly recommend this shoe.
