Mizuno Wave Rider 21 Running Shoes
The Mizuno Wave rider 21 is anatomically engineered for great performances. Featuring Mizuno’s unique wave technology, the wave rider provides a cushioned and more responsive ride, allowing you to go further and faster.
Breathable AirMesh Upper
The upper of the Wave Rider 21 is constructed of breathable air mesh that allows air to fully permeate the upper. this allows cool, fresh air to be sucked in whilst at the same time pushing out hot, muggy air created a perfect in-shoe microclimate for your feet to thrive in. In addition, the upper boasts a dynamotion fit that is all about creating a shoe that works and moves with the foot throughout a run. The design and materials that are used to create the dynamotion fit work in unison to allow your foot to move and not prevent any natural movement but also provide structure to the upper.
Additionally, the dynamotion fit uses the latest motion capture and biomechanics technology, Mizuno’s blueprint was designed to engineer shoes that work with the foot’s gait cycle. Lastly, A New anatomical sockliner adds more cushioning and comfort whilst providing a perfect fit.
Mizuno Wave Midsole
The Mizuno wave provides flexibility in one direction and support in the other. The midsole technology works to absorb the shock of heel striking without compromising the comfort or cushioning. Once the shock has been absorbed the energy from that is harnessed and is then transferred to the forefoot to then push you off and guide you onto the next movement. the wave prevents partial deformation and provides dynamic support to stabilise and guide the foot forward.
The midsole features a Mizuno intercool system that is a full-length ventilation system that reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the footwear. In addition, the midsole offers smoothride technology which is an engineering approach to minimise the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition. This creates the smoothest ride possible throughout the gait cycle.
Lastly, the midsole offers a dual combination of lightweight and cushioning from U4ic and U4icX. The u4ic is a unique midsole compound that rides and cushions like Mizuno’s AP+ midsole but is approximately 30% lighter without any loss of comfort or performance. Additionally, the U4icX is a light evolutionary midsole that delivers a more comfortable cushioned ride with higher rebound properties that standard midsole units. This allows for a comfortable yet energised ride.
Durability and traction arrive in the form of an X10 outsole. The extremely substantial carbon rubber allows for longer wear in high impact areas and provides more traction at the heel strike, allowing you to run hard with confidence. Flex grooves are added to the outsole to promote natural movement from the heel to the forefoot, initiating a rocking chair motion for fluid strides.
