The Wave Rider 17 hits the sweet spot for a wide variety of runners. Our flagship shoe is ideal for the neutral runner with just enough support and cushioning for high mileage training. It uses our exclusive Mizuno Wave Technology for an unmatched running experience that’s ultra-smooth, lightweight, and disappears off the foot while under way. Our SmoothRide Engineering is designed for a brilliant run. Each of its elements creates harmony between you and the shoe so you barely know it’s there. A blown rubber forefoot outsole provides optimal flexibility while the sculpted lateral forefoot means a smooth touchdown. Right down to the peeling paint effect on the heal strap, this shoe exudes sleek speed all around.
