What makes Wave Rider 15 different?
By combining the best qualities of every Wave Rider that came before it, Mizuno has created its masterpiece with the Wave Rider 15. While the pendulum in running may swing from one extreme to another, the genius of the Wave Rider 15 is found through its harmonious balance of a lightweight feel, wrapped-to-foot fit and exquisitely smooth ride, ultimately producing a brilliant running experience.
Albert Einstein believed that everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler. Perhaps he had a vision of the Wave Rider 15 – simple in form, yet based on the innovative technologies that elevate Mizuno products above the rest.
The leading footwear technology that combines cushioning and stability, two distinctly different, yet necessary elements in running shoes.
While the running world labors over the pros and cons of lightweight, cushioning and stability, Mizuno labors to strike the perfect balance...a harmonious marriage of all three, achieved through Mizuno Wave Technology®.
Minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible.
Mizuno has taken SmoothRide Engineering™ a step further with the Wave Rider 15. Forefoot Flex Controllers allow optimal flex at toe-off and by moving the heel contact point a bit further forward on the sole it smooths out heel contact producing a more fluid ride.
Relives the stress the foot naturally places on footwear, eliminating distortion for the perfect fit.
A running shoe should work with the foot, not against it. Dynamotion Fit™ achieves this by allowing the upper to move in harmony with the foot through the entire running gait - from heel strike through toe-off. With Dynamotion Fit™ a runner and shoe literally become one.
