Innovation has always been at the core of the Mizuno brand with each technological advancement serving as an opportunity to enhance the athlete’s performance whatever their sporting endeavour may be.

WAVE TECHNOLOGY

With this desire to innovate, Mizuno first implemented Wave Technology in 1997 with the introduction of the Wave Rider 1. A classic silhouette that still remains a firm fan favourite 25 years later.

Wave Technology utilises a unique combination of dynamic cushioning, stability and exceptional energy return. This winning formula allows ground contact to be evenly distributed across the shoe’s platform for the most comfortable underfoot ride. Each Wave plate is strategically engineered to ensure the optimal level of stability for both neutral runners and those who require support.

ENERZY FOAM

After two years of rigorous testing, Enerzy foam is the latest revolutionary addition to the Mizuno running shoe line up. Fuelled by in depth analysis into the capabilities of athletes, Enerzy has been developed with the goal of delivering superior energy return without compromising comfort or durability. This unique midsole material is both 17% softer and boasts 15% more rebound to your stride compared to previous foams!
You’ll find Enerzy foam featured in many of Mizuno’s most popular high performance models. Read on to find out which of Mizuno's shoes is right for you.
