Our flagship running technology that changed everything.

The genesis for Wave came as our engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly. Inspired by nature’s simple efficiency, we created the world’s first and most effective mechanical midsole–the Mizuno Wave.

 

Unlike other shoe technologies, as your foot touches the ground, Wave actually reduces and redirects impact forces away from your foot. Wave acts much like your car’s suspension–offering cushioning and keeping your foot centered in your shoe throughout your stride. Our engineers have developed multiple Wave shapes, so we can gear different shoes to fit the unique strides of different runners. And Wave’s compact form keeps the shoe sleeker and lighter than competitive systems. So whether you’re jogging around the neighborhood or blasting past the 20-mile marker, Wave always feels amazing underfoot.

 

  • Disperses impact forces away from foot
  • Progressive, tunable support
  • Lightweight, compact, responsive
  • Doesn’t break down over time
