Wave Horizon 2 Review // by Chris White

As a runner and Mizuno wearer I need a bit of support with my shoes as I do pronate a bit. The Wave Catalyst, Wave Inspire and Wave Horizon are all in that range, with the Wave Horizon being the most cushioned of them. I have enjoyed swapping shoes and changing things up through the range throughout this year of marathon running. When I heard that Mizuno were releasing a Horizon 2, I was intrigued…

Say Sayonara and head into the Shadows :: SHOE REVIEW BY DAVID LIPMAN

As the Sayonara is, somewhat ironically, farewelled many of us were left with the thought; “well what shoe do I run in now?” I have been a Wave Sayonara devotee since day 1, I have run through multiple pairs of the 1’s through the 4’s and loved them all. BUT if I am truly honest, I preferred the earlier models with their more minimalist design. As the model progressed it moved more towards a traditional…

Not since those words spewed out of a gaming console in the 1990s and 2000s have I been this excited about something!  Mizuno’s new season has yielded quite a few new models and a bucket load of excitement!  Some of the new entries have filled a very popular niche that was previously somewhat overlooked by the brand. The Sonic comes in to a category that is almost essential for shoe companies these days. As a…

Mizuno Wave Rider 20 – The Ultimate Training Shoe by Liam Delaney

  My last few Sunday runs have been particularly good. The main difference to my usual 20-30km Sunday run is my new Wave Rider 20’s that have just landed in Australia. I’ve been running competitively for over 20 years, tried every major running shoe in that time, and I really love this shoe. The Wave Rider is a neutral mid weight (290g for the men and 240g for the women) training shoe my orthotics fit…

Mizuno Sayonara 3 Review // Time to say goodbye to the 2!

In the name of open disclosure I must declare; I’ve loved the Wave Sayonara from day 1 and have run through at least 2 pairs of 1’s and 4 pairs of 2’s, including completing my first marathon in them.   I must also mention they are the only pair of shoes that I didn’t hate when I first put them on, I usually use my second run as a first impression as I tend to…
