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

Back to Mizunos!
As an athlete who played college volleyball for 4 years I loved my Mizuno volleyball shoes. But after college I got more into running and turned to Asics running shoes...but after dealing with several stress fractures in my feet I've been switching brands trying to find the right fit, support, comfort and I've found it all in the new Mizuno Wave Rider! So it's back to Miuno's for this girl! Thanks for the wonderful shoes with attractive color options! Lindsey

Wave Rider 20
This is probably my tenth pair of Wave Riders. The designers got this one right for sure. The 19s were a tiny bit stiff, the 18s light but not as functional, but the 20s really hit home! Loooove my Mizunos and encourage my running club to join in!

Amazing update , amazing ride and great cushioning
I've worn adidas adios boost for the past 4 years. I love the shoe, and everything I've ever tried on I always go back to the adios. I did my first marathon lt year and the adios was hard on my body, so I thought I'd save it for speedwork and short races and look for a more cushioned shoe for marathons and long runs. Pretty sure I just found it. The shoe is really lightweight and while it's a lot more shoe than the adios, it never feels clunky or heavy while running in it. Did 5 miles in the rain today, it had excellent traction and in the fast portions, it felt great. Now please mizuno, don't CHANGE IT !!! It's perfect!!

Awesome Update
This update really surprised me with the great cushioning underfoot, especially close to the skin. The forefoot is still pretty narrow but that's what mizuno is known for. The cushioning is what really sold me though, the older versions became stiff but this was the same old wave rider 16 I liked.

I've been running in Adidas and brooks. I tried Mizuno a try because my work gave me shoes to try. I like the fit and comfortability of the shoe. the Rider 20 has gotten much softer which I love!

First Time Buyer!
The most comfortable shoe I've ever had for basic training AND running. Yes, I use them for both. I went to a local running store looking for a shoe that would fit my gait and they brought me Mizuno's, Saucony's and Brooks. Without missing a beat, I chose the Mizuno's. (needed Neutral fit) From the first time out, I noticed a difference. HUGE fan!!!

I found these at the top of the list of running shoes for people with bunions that do not need specific support. The store I went to had sz 9 in the previous version. It felt great but was too small. Also my daughter runs in the Hitogami and is highly impressed. Considering the feedback from online sources these shoes sound like the perfect match for me.

Tani J on Mar 16, 2017
I am having trouble with shin and calf tightness when running so I decided to try a new shoe. I took a "Find the right shoe for your foot" questionnaire and these were the most attractive shoes out of the options I was given from the results of the questionnaire. We will see how they feel. I have not used Mizunos for running but I played volleyball with Mizunos in high school and college. I'm excited to try them out for running.

Jackie Y on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our shoes will generally run true to size compared to other athletic shoes on the market. However, we would strongly recommend visiting one of our Mizuno Authorized Retailers to go through a full fitting to determine which size is best for you.

Will there be more color options? Three are not that many to chose from.
A shopper on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We will be releasing three more color options for this shoe in the future. 1 color option in December 2016, and 2 more color options in February 2017.
Any chance one of the not yet released colours will be black or black and white? Thanks
A shopper on Oct 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we will not be releasing a black/white color combination for this shoe.
What is the mm offset or drop?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Women's Wave Rider 20 has a 12mm drop.
Is it slippery in the rain or snow?
Lena Y on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Even though our running shoes are used on many different types of surfaces, they are mainly meant for road running in non-extreme weather. Light rain and snow would still allow the shoes to perform however, an icy surface/heavy rain/moderate to heavy snow is not recommended to run on in any circumstances. We will be releasing a Wave Rider 20 Gore Tex all-terrain shoe that will pick up where the regular road running shoes leave off. This shoe is called the Wave Rider 20 G-TX. This shoe will be released December 2016.
I wear down the outside of the right heel. How strong is the sole of your shoe? I go through a pair of shoes every three weeks.
A shopper on Nov 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Wave riders are not super strong. Note that I have the same problem with the left and have to buy shoes every month as well. I drag my foot ever since a stress fracture.

Would these shoes be good for long distance walking?I need a good shoe that will be comfortable for long distances for the Avon39 walk
erika g on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. Walking on these shoes is like walking on a cloud of cotton. (PS - just to make sure: I don't work or get any compensation from Mizuno about this comment. I am just a regular runner)
I prefer the men's colors. I am a woman. Is the fit the same, such that I could just buy a men's shoe?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Length; a Men's shoe is a 1.5 size difference from a Women's shoe. So, a Women's 9 will equate to a Men's 7.5. Width; Women's standard width is B and Men's standard width is width is D. So, a regular Men's shoe will equate to a Women's Wide.

Is there any way to get a pair of Wave Rider 16s? I ran collegiate XC and track & field and have worn Mizuno Wave Riders since 2002-and I do not like the new designs from the 16 on. I have not bought the 20s yet but before I purchase something I may not like again, is there any way I can get several pairs of the last version I know I was comfortable in?
Holly G on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Holly, I didn't like anything past 16 either, but I have enjoyed my 20s so far. Actually I loved my 12s lol. But honestly, the 20 has been good to me thus far. They are not comfortable as a walking shoe- feels restricting. But has offered comfort and support for running. Go try on and give it a shot!
Will the gray purple turquoise have the main color of gray???
Rental on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The purple black are primarily purple. The pink gray are primarily gray. The turquoise gray are primarily turquoise.
I felt like the toe box became much more narrow from the 18 to the 19. Does the 20 go back to the original size, or does it stay narrow? If so, is there another option? It's so uncomfortable for me on long runs.
Nicol M on Mar 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: the 20's have a little more room in the toebox! I took some time off of them and came back again recently and have been pleased!
