Run with a spring in your step in the supportive Mizuno Wave Inspire 18.

The Inspire 18 gives you a cushioned, responsive and stable ride. This shoe uses Mizuno’s signature wave plate technology in a double wave pattern to provide support and stability during your run, which is ideal for individuals who excessively pronate or have flexible arches. Plus, this TPU wave plate is made from corn, a renewable biomass source.

Mizuno’s ENERZY foam in the heel provides both cushion and energy return for your runs. The midsole is made with U4IC, which is a unique proprietary compound that provides high comfort and performance, while also being lightweight. The result is a soft, smooth ride that puts a pep in your step.

The biggest changes made to the Wave Inspire 18 are in the upper, which is now seamless, lighter and contains recycled materials. Our reviewers loved the simple comfort of the updated upper in our Mizuno Wave Inspire 18 review.

The Mizuno Wave Inspire 18 continues its tradition of being a reliable, lightweight stability running shoe that’s perfect for everyday runs.

My first Mizuno purchase

ER N 8 months ago Verified Purchase

I purchased these shoes to wear to work. I read the reviews about it being a good stability shoe. They are very uncomfortable and I can’t use them for work. My first and last Mizuno purchase.

love them

Sierra72 11 months ago Verified Purchase

This is my fourth pair of Wave Inspire and I love the fit but I wish they would reinforce the toe bed a bit. After about 2 months I start to get a whole in the toe area. It is due to how I flex my foot when I run/walk. I have heard the complaint from others so hopefully they will provide a fix. Otherwise they fit my flat feet which was caused by my arches collapsing due to a prior injury many years ago. Great support!!

Perfect shoe for foot issues

ANH N 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I've been a fan and buyer of Mizuno shoes for over 20 years. This particular model is perfect for me! I use these shoes for working out and walking (I'm not a runner!). While this shoe is designed for runners the cushion and support in the shoe is great for someone who has foot issues and plantar fasciitis. I'm purchasing another pair in a different color.

I love my new Mizuno Wave Inspire 18 shoes. I need a roomy toe box and these fit perfectly and are also comfortable. I am not a runner but wear my shoes for walking and I am very happy.

Women's Mizuno Wave Inspire 18

Sheryl W 1 year ago Verified Purchase

These are my favorite shoe to workout and walk in! I like that Fleet Feet has many styles and brands to choose from so that you don't have to wear the same shoe every day. I wore these shoes to New York this week as I knew I would be walking a lot. Didn't disappoint me at all. My feet and legs felt great after walking around 168th street then took a taxi to the MET then through Central Park to go eat at The Smith restaurant then subway back to 40th street where we stayed at Margaritaville Hotel. That is just one day walking!
