The Mizuno Wave Paradox is a ultra supportive shoe, the improved stability has been matched by an improvement in comfort and weight reduction. Ideal for runners needing max support who want a dynamic shoe.
The genesis for Wave came as Mizuno’s engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly. Inspired by nature’s simple efficiency, Mizuno created the world’s first and most effective mechanical midsole - the Mizuno Wave. Unlike other shoe technologies, as your foot touches the ground, Wave actually reduces and redirects impact forces away from your foot.
Wave acts much like your car’s suspension — offering cushioning and keeping your foot centred in your shoe throughout your stride. Mizuno’s engineers have developed multiple Wave shapes, so we can gear different shoes to fit the unique strides of different runners. And Wave’s compact form keeps the shoe sleeker and lighter than competitive systems. So whether you’re jogging around the neighbourhood or blasting past the 20-mile marker, Wave always feels amazing underfoot.
The best running gear is gear that allows you to get the most out of your natural ability. It simply works with your body. When Mizuno’s engineers studied the way muscles and skin moved on the foot as you run, Mizuno realized that they could design a shoe upper that mirrored that motion so that the shoe almost feels like a second skin. That discovery was the beginning of Dynamotion Fit.
From heel strike to mid stride to toe off, Dynamotion Fit is all about creating a shoe that works with your foot through the design and materials we use to create it. As your foot twists, bends, and stretches in each step, the shoe upper moves with you. Flex Eyelets help keep your heel secure throughout your stride by allowing the upper to stretch and contract as needed. And Stretch Mesh eliminates bunching and pulling that can create discomfort and even blisters - especially at toe-off. Together, the features of Dynamotion Fit create a shoe that gets out of your way, so you can become the best runner you can be.
SmoothRide is the result of years of development designed to the most fluid, smooth, rocking-chair-like motion in every step. SmoothRide begins working the moment your foot touches the ground. Flex Grooves in the heel promote natural movement from the back of your foot to the front, initiating that rocking-chair motion.
Mizuno’s AP+ Midsole gives the shoe a bouncier feel. And Flex Grooves and Flex Controllers in the forefoot work together to smoothly continue the roll forward to give your foot a more solid platform at toe-off. It all adds up to a more fluid, enjoyable run, every time you head out.
To determine the correct type of running shoe for your feet, use the tried and tested "wet foot test". Dip your foot into water and then stand on a surface that will show your footprint - a towel or piece of paper or cardboard. The shape of your wet footprint indicates the amount of stability you might need in your shoe. If your footprint looks like the one on the right (with a a flare, but with the forefoot and heel connected by a broad band.) then you should choose shoes from the stability category on this page. Stability shoes offer a good blend of cushioning, medial support (to limit excessive inward rolling of the foot, which can cause injury) and durability. To provide stability, they often have a medial post or dual-density midsole - these are features that provide a firmer density under the inner edge of your foot. You should buy these if you’re a midweight runner who doesn't have any severe motion control problems and wants a shoe with some medial support and good durability The Normal Foot Normal feet have a normal-sized arch and will leave a wet footprint that has a flare, but shows the forefoot and heel connected by a broad band. A normal foot lands on the outside of the heel and rolls inwards slightly to absorb shock. It's the foot of a runner who is biomechanically efficient and therefore doesn't need a motion control shoe. Best shoes: Stability shoes with moderate control features.
