Performance-focused innovation has always driven us at Mizuno. There is no greater example of this than the revolution that is Wave technology. From its start, Wave changed running shoe design. But we didn’t stop there. In fact, because athletes in nearly every sport include some sort of running in their training regimen, our shoe technologies affect more athletes than anything else we do. We’re proud of that. And we’re continuing to develop new ideas and new technologies that work in harmony with your body to make you an even better you.

Inspired by nature, Wave is the industry’s most effective midsole technology. Wave’s unique shape dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a smoother, more cushioned feel on every step.
Combination of shoe technologies that create an upper that moves with your foot seamlessly throughout your stride, eliminating stress points and bunching for a more comfortable run.
Unique approach to the sole of the shoe designed to create a smooth, rocking-chair-like transition from heel to toe on every step.
A new advanced cushioning material that is lighter, absorbs shock and with its fast rebound properties, keeps the transition smooth and fast.
Breathable and Cool. AIRmesh allows each running shoe from Mizuno to maintain a high standard of breathability for the life of the shoe, and allows the foot to stay cool.
Enhancing the inherent properties of AP midsole, AP+ offers increased rebound and a "bouncier" feeling, which extends the cushion durability, while maintaining the light weight performance.
AP midsole functions as a light weight, responsive, yet durable cushioning copolymer.
G3, a new performance outsole component that enhances traction where needed most and reduces weight
Cool and Dry. Mizuno Intercool solves the problem of heat and humidity build-up in a running shoe, by incorporating a full-length ventilation system in the sole of the shoe that removes heat and humidity from the foot through a system of ventilation channels.
Shock absorption and Cushioning. VS-1 absorbs shock and enhances cushioning properties by resisting compression-set, thus extending the cushioning life of running shoes.
Bi-Directional outsole rubber synthetic leather compound breaks through water, improving grip in all conditions.
Durability and Traction. X-10 provides the most durable carbon rubber from Mizuno that allows for longer wear in high impact areas and provides more traction at heel strike.
Based on biomechanical research into the differences between mens and womens gait. Mizuno constructs the Midsole/Outsole of each gender differently to improve the ride, performance and comfort.
