You don’t normally associate Mizuno with ground-breaking, cutting-edge technology. The Wave Rider, Mizuno’s best selling model is proof that the Japanese brand doesn’t take big risks. Update after update, year after year, the Wave Rider retains the same consistent look and ride.

This new technology called Enerzy is the most exciting thing Mizuno has concocted in years and has running shoe geeks talking.
