Mizuno Wave Rider 19 Running shoes
Built for runners looking for moderate protection and NEUTRAL control, the eighteenth instalment in MIZUNO’s iconic WAVE RIDER series is the most advanced yet.
Offering an intoxicating mix of fit and performance, the WAVE RIDER 18 incorporates two different types of rubber in the sole to inject more bounce into your stride and propel you forward every time your foot hits the ground. A lightweight U4ic midsole also provides greater responsiveness and a more dynamic underfoot feel.
Meanwhile a revamped two piece upper hugs the foot perfectly for a superior fit that works in harmony with the body – making the WAVE RIDER 18 feel like an extension of your feet. Stitched overlays on the medial and lateral sides hold the foot in place throughout the gait cycle, while an AIRmesh upper provides exceptional ventilation and support. Stretch mesh construction and a new ORTHOLITE SOCKLINER means the RIDER 18 also eliminates chaffing and discomfort at common irritation spots.
The PARALLEL WAVE incorporated in the heel also helps absorb and disperse impact force more effectively, thereby alleviating the stress that running places on your joints and muscles. This edition of the shoe also includes reconfigured flex grooves and a refined toe-spring for effortless toe-offs and improved traction and flexibility.
