Mizuno Wave Rider 20 (Men's)
Mizuno is transforming running once again with the Wave Rider 20. In the 20th iteration of our most beloved shoe, we've included entirely new Wave plate technology for a softer, smoother ride with an even more responsive feel.
Running is Hard, Riding is Smooth
The Wave Rider 20 maintains Mizuno's classic fit while also featuring a breakthrough in Triple Zone engineered mesh that provides breathability, movement and hold throughout the run. After 18 years of continuous refinement, our latest Wave Rider is guaranteed to exceed all expectations.
If you have high arches and need minimal support, The Wave Rider 19 is ideal for neutral runners looking for a resilient and responsive shoe with an amazing underfoot feel. This lightweight men's running shoe is also cushioned for superb comfort and flexibility.
- An all-new, redesigned cloudwave plate provides an overall softer, smoother ride
- Articulated U4icX heel wedge creates more cushion
- Top midsole foam incorporates a new U4ic foam compound that makes this version of the Wave Rider 33% more responsive and durable than previous models
- Engineered mesh increases breathability, movement & hold
- Softer heel collar helps avoid irritation without losing heel fit
The genesis for Wave came as our engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly. Inspired by nature’s simple efficiency, we created the world’s first and most effective mechanical midsole--the Mizuno Wave.
Shock absorbing mid-sole material. Advanced cushioning material that is lighter, absorbs shock and keeps the transition smooth and fast.
Full-length midsole ventilation reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe.
Fluid motion at every step of your run.
SmoothRide is the result of years of development designed to the most fluid, smooth, rocking-chair-like motion in every step.
