    Launch Day - Mizuno Wave Rider 28

    by Lionel Brahim Brodie III

    Almost one (1) year ago I put on a Mizuno Wave Rider for the first time. It was, and still is, one of the lightest pairs of trainers that I have ever worn! 


    Full Stop. Wait.....Half–Full Stop.




    The Wave Rider 28 is a shoe that both neutral and stability shoe wearers are going to enjoy. Lightweight, cushioned, breathable, fast, and supportive enough for runners of all gaits and strides. Mizuno has updated the upper, so expect more breathability, and they've injected the midsole with the latest in MIZUNO ENERZY technology, so expect more cushioning.


    I'm probably going to sound ridiculous when I say this, but even the insole looks and feels fast. Can't wait to get these on my feet. Today seems like a good time.




    Okay. Full Stop.


    The Tech Talk:


    The Mizuno Wave Rider 28 lets you unleash your inner drive! Soft cushioning and high energy return come from Mizuno’s game–changing ENERZY NXT midsole and legendary Wave Plate in the heel, which are stable and forgiving on easy runs while still being versatile for faster transitions when you pick up the pace. The shoe has been finished off with a breathable Jacquard Air Mesh upper for a seamless fit.



    Product Features:


    A soft Jacquard mesh upper gives you a forgiving and breathable fit. This flexible and smooth upper construction, with strategically placed PU print guides, stretches and supports your foot with every stride.


    Gusseted tongue provides a secure midfoot lockdown. Stretchy tongue lining hugs the foot comfortably without any stress.


    Lighter, softer and more resilient than ever, the bio–based ENERZY NXT midsole, the next generation of MIZUNO ENERZY midsole material, ensures a smooth and energized (responsive) ride from your first step to your last. 


    In the heel, the plant–based Mizuno Wave Plate made with Pebax Rnew® disperses impact to a broader area providing a cushioned, stable platform that minimizes environmental impact while maximizing your performance.


    The X10 outsole is a carbon rubber that allows for longer wear, making the Wave Rider durable enough to be your workhorse running shoe.
