One of Mizuno’s most dependable everyday trainers remains a great lightweight option. The U4ic midsole pairs nicely with the blown rubber outsole for a firm yet comfortable ride. The Wave Rider has ample room in the toe-box and a smooth seamless upper. The hefty drop will appeal to those that need a bit of help getting up on their forefoot.
» Tester Says The Wave Rider has a good amount of support under the midsole, but I still found these shoes great for doing fast repeats.
