At Mizuno, our commitment to innovation, quality and technological design spans over 100 years. It is a rich and storied history of developing both the functional materials and the technologies that design and build them into world class products.  

Every detail that goes into the creation of our shoes, from design to craft, is built to carry you to your goals no matter what stage you’re at. And just as no two runners are identical, the same goes for our shoes. 

Each model is individually crafted to serve a purpose; road, track, trail. Our shoes are designed to allow you to take each step with the necessary cushioning and support that lets you run further.

We set the standard for running shoes, and with them, you can Reach Beyond.

Mizuno Wave

Mizuno Wave is our signature technology that provides the perfect balance of cushioning and stability to give you the ideal running platform. The wave shape of our WAVE PLATE and the wave geometry in our FOAMWAVE are both highly engineered to provide dynamic cushioning from heel to toe and enhanced stability from side to side.


Mizuno’s iconic WAVE PLATE uniformly disperses shock upon foot strike, providing both cushioning and stability using one piece of technology. This technology, unique to Mizuno, enables us to deliver a lightweight and durable product every time.

Foam Wave

The latest iteration of Mizuno's signature technology. Foam Wave delivers plush cushioning and a floating feeling by utilising a two-layered midsole with different densities in Wave formation.

Midsole Technologies

SmoothRide is Mizuno’s overarching engineering approach to minimise the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition from heel to toe, creating the smoothest ride possible.

Mizuno Enerzy

MIZUNO ENERZY is our revolutionary new midsole technology, developed and engineered to deliver super soft cushioning and high energy return. It is a testament to our drive to improve the performance of athletes around the world whilst providing an overall more comfortable feeling.

MIZUNO ENERZY CORE located within the foamwave, this material brings extreme softness and responsiveness to deliver an all new floating experience to runners. Delivering the highest levels of energy return and cushioning in Mizuno's history.
