£120 En­ter­ing its third decade on the mar­ket, we’re pretty sure there will be run­ners out there who have been wear­ing the Wave Rider for half their lives or more – a re­mark­able achieve­ment that few shoes can man­age. Over the years Mizuno has tweaked and tin­kered with its flag­ship high-mileage neu­tral shoe, but never moved too far away from the es­sen­tial DNA. The changes this time have hit the bulls­eye – it was one of the high­est-rated shoes we’ve ever had on test. Testers loved the new softer mid­sole foam, which gave a slightly plusher ride with­out com­pro­mis­ing on ground feel; and the flip­ping up­side down of the long­stand­ing Mizuno wave plate, which gave a more nu­anced feel to im­pact pro­tec­tion.
