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

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!!

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!

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.

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!!!

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.
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 do see there will be more color options: what are they? Thanks.
Gretchen B on Oct 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We will be releasing the following colors:
Liberty/Black/Electric - December 2016 (Purple/Pink)
High-Rise/Turquoise/Liberty - February 2017 (Gray/Turquoise/Purple)
White/Norse Blue/Solar Power - February 2017

When released, these color options will be available through our web site and through your local Running Specialty Retailers. Please visit the link provided below to find the nearest retailer to you.

A shopper on Oct 26, 2016

A shopper on Nov 29, 2016

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. 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.
