Women's Mizuno Wave Inspire 17



[Looking for the latest version? The women's Mizuno Wave Inspire 18 is available now.]

The women's Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 gives you stability and cushion for a comfortable ride.

Mizuno created reliable stability by using its signature Wave Plate technology. The plastic plate embedded into the midsole helps mitigate the effects of overpronation, keeping the shoe from wearing out prematurely.

Surrounding the plate is a cushion of Mizuno’s Enerzy foam. The new foam composition is softer and bouncier than foams used in previous versions of the shoe, which gives the Inspire 17 a cushier landing and smoother transition.

A soft and smooth mesh upper creates a comfortable fit that breathes easily when your workout heats up, and a secure internal heel counter locks your foot into place to prevent rubbing or chafing.

With a new underfoot feel with the same stability you can count on, the women's Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 meets all your needs.

What's New

The biggest change to the Wave Inspire 17 is the use of Mizuno Enerzy foam. The foam is softer and bouncier than Mizuno’s U4icX foam that was used in previous models.

Who It's Best For

The Inspire 17 is a stability shoe, which means it’s effective for runners who overpronate. The extra stability features are more durable to help mitigate the effects of excessive pronation on the inside edge of the shoe. Even though it’s in the stability category, neutral runners can still wear it comfortably.

What We Love

Fleet Feet reviewers love the classic, secure fit and updated underfoot feel. The Inspire 17 accommodates a range of different foot shapes, and it locks in the heel and midfoot. Mizuno Enerzy foam also gives the shoe a comfortable ride.

Recently I purchased a new pair of amazing Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 running shoes. Once I tried them on in the store I knew these would be my next favorite pair of shoes. Since I have a narrow foot with a very narrow heel not all running shoes fit me. I really wanted black shoes so my excellent salesperson ordered exactly the color that I wanted and had it delivered to my home. If you are looking for great support fit cushion and comfort check these shoes out!

I like these shoes so much that I bought another pair! Great arch support they don’t tilt me forward like other brands and keep my feet comfortable even if I wear them all day long.
