The Newly Refined Rider 20

The softest, smoothest, most responsive Wave Rider yet.
After nearly two decades of refinement, our latest Wave Rider is guaranteed to exceed all expectations.

Wave Rider 20

Mizuno is transforming running once again with the Wave Rider 20. In the 20th iteration of our most beloved shoe, we've included entirely new Wave plate technology for a softer, smoother ride with an even more responsive feel.

Running is Hard, Riding is Smooth

The Wave Rider 20 maintains Mizuno's classic fit while also featuring a breakthrough in Triple Zone engineered mesh that provides breathability, movement and hold throughout the run. After 18 years of continuous refinement, our latest Wave Rider is guaranteed to exceed all expectations.

Key Features

  • An all-new, redesigned cloudwave plate provides an overall softer, smoother ride
  • Articulated U4icX heel wedge creates more cushion
  • Top midsole foam incorporates a new U4ic foam compound that makes this version of the Wave Rider 33% more responsive and durable than previous models
  • Engineered mesh increases breathability, movement & hold
  • Softer heel collar helps avoid irritation without losing heel fit
  • Ramp: 12mm

Amazing shoes
I was not a huge fan of the Wave Rider 19 because they were built a little narrower, and holes always formed by my pinky toe. These new wave riders feel a lot more comfortable, and they have more cushion do to the new u4icX. Love the overall look and feel of these shoes, and would recommend these shoes over any others I have used before.

Great update!
This shoe lives up to the hype! When they say softer, they really mean it. The new wave technology is completely different. You get the same smooth transition, with a MUCH softer cushion. LOVE this shoe!

Best yet!
These are easily the best Wave Riders yet. Admittedly I'm kind of new to the party having only ran in the 17,18,19, and now the 20. I've heard the 15 & 16 were very good though. The cushioning and responsiveness of the 20 is better than the previous Riders I've owned. I love the softer cushioning. It's much better than the 19 in my opinion. These are a joy to run in and they have increased my pace. I highly recommend them!

Single best update in running shoes the last 5 years
I have been running in my Brooks Ghosts and Adidas Supernovas for years. After going for a few runs in my Wave Riders I realize that my previous shoes weren't great like I thought...merely good. My Wave Riders feel poppy and soft which is not an easy combination to get to in running footwear.
Great shoe, incredible update.
Very well done, Mizuno!

Post foot injury
After my metatarsal injury 8 months ago, I have been searching for the right shoe for me. I have tried every shoe on the market and my search has ended. The fit, feel, support and runnability of this shoe is amazing. Just the perfect blend of cushioning and nimble feel from heel to toe. They run "quiet" and are an amazing balance from long runs to fast track workouts for me.

Solid Update to a Classic
I ran in the Rider 18. This version felt almost too plush around the ankle and midfoot. I felt like my footwear was moving around and the fit was not as snug as I would like. The plush upper made my feet sweat a bit.
Loved the softer step in feel. I prefer a firmer ride and the Rider 20 still provided that experience while offering a softer step in experience. This will be my shoe of choice for my everyday training runs.
