With the goal of bringing energy return to new extremes comes the birth of the Wave Rider Neo. The use of a full-length MIZUNO ENERZY midsole combined with our wave plate technology makes the Wave Rider Neo the lightest and most responsive Wave Rider ever created (260g).
WAVE RIDER NEO: Behind the Design
The Wave Rider Neo features a full-length MIZUNO ENERZY midsole with an additional layer on the heel. This ensures better cushioning while the Mizuno wave plate provides the signature propulsive running experience. The seamlessly woven upper expands vertically, keeping the foot in place during extreme propulsion. The bootie tongue construction adds to a snug midfoot fit.
Infused with MIZUNO ENERZY core, the Wave Sky Neo is created to defy the limits of cushioning and comfort. Designed for runners who want to experience the ultimate floating run, the Wave Sky Neo is the only model that features MIZUNO ENERZY core technology which is 293% softer and 56% bouncier than its predecessors.
