The Japanese brand Mizuno is one of the most reputable firms of all those that manufacture shoes and other accessories necessary for the foot race. This forcefulness is due to the experience within the world and to share space with other runners and brokers and see how they trust the Japanese brand when they start to have more boards in this of running.

Why? Perhaps because Mizuno does not have the “multisport” presence of giants from the distribution of sports equipment such as Nike or Adidas, for example, that for this same reason, for many they are only initiatory brands, and then end up moving to others such as New Balance, ASICS, Brooks or Mizuno herself.

Mizuno Wave Creation 20 is a shoe with two decades of travel and focused on runners and runners with neutral or even slight tread until moderate pronation. This is due to the efficient management of the tread performed on the midsole. The aesthetics of this shoe is spectacular due to the large windows that are observed under the heel.

Mizuno Wave Paradox 5 is a cushioned shoe with maximum control of pronation. The midsole is expressly constructed to provide a lot of cushioning, but also to stabilize any footprint with excess problems when pronar.

The way Mizuno achieves it is largely thanks to the Wave piece, manufactured in Pébax. This structure allows to distribute the pressure that occurs when hitting the ground, but reinforcing the inner face of the ankle. Wrapping all of this, two materials: AP + and U4icX are going to be partners in that stable and comfortable cushioning. The sole is constructed with X10, a solid rubber that is the most wear resistant of Mizuno. Above, the upper uses AIRmesh as a lightweight breathability mesh while reinforcements under the “Firebird” logo will help not only hold the foot, but also keep it stable, working as a team with the midsole.

Already in the third installment, Mizuno Wave Shadow 3 is consolidated as a great mixed shoe option, by the Japanese brand. Not only will you collaborate on provide pace and speed, but it will also do it comfortably and lightly.

It weighs only 255gr in the finish of man and 210gr in the finish of woman and is characterized by using a midsole based on the U4iC compound for reactive damping. The thickness of the midsole is defined by its 25mm heel height, by the 17mm of the forefoot. Neither too much nor too little for a shoe of his style that, as a good mixed, stays at 8mm drop. To finish off that area, a Wave piece made of Pébax is responsible for improving not only the damping, but also the stability and transition of the tread. Below, the sole is divided into two large blocks, one rear and one front, and joined precisely by the Wave piece (making Smooth Ride good, which is the technology that works to achieve a fluid footprint).

In the sole we find a longitudinal line to guide the tread and transverse stripes between the incisive studs to improve flexibility. The material used here is X-10 the strongest in Mizuno. Above, an AIRmesh mesh with very soft lines and heat-sealed reinforcements on the toe, will perspire lightly. To assist in the support of the foot, on both sides, under the mesh, there are a pair of reinforcement straps that will work at the time of closing the loop. Official price € 136 (See Offers).


Mizuno Wave Sonic 2 is a very light competition shoe that can also be used in training at strong or fractional rhythms, such as the series. Thought for the route, Mizuno conceives her to go very fast with her. It is not for less, using the U4icX compound, throughout the midsole, capable of providing soft cushioning, but with a better degree of rebound than other compounds. The height in this part of Wave Sonic 2 is 21mm and 17mm, for a drop of 4mm. Here we find ESS Wave, the board made of Pébax responsible for further improving the damping and that this is done stably. If observed, it does not have the typical wavy shape that Mizuno accustoms us to, but it is a compact piece located in the middle of this Sonic 2.

The sole contains a large number of medium sized studs, with pointed shapes for a good grip. The rubber with which they are manufactured is X10, Mizuno's own, of very high durability. Above, the mesh is the main element. This is AIRmesh, very light and ventilated. Its appearance is simple, but everything is precisely controlled. That is why the support is carried out by DynamotionFIT, a Mizuno system that allows the foot to be taken well, but at the same time adapting the mesh to the movement of the foot in all phases of the tread.

The weight is 220gr in the masculine finish and 180gr in the feminine one. See better offers.


Mizuno Wave Duel is a shoe designed to go very very fast and that the Japanese brand recommends to run marathons ... whoever is able to dress them, of course. A very small weight of 200gr in the case of men and 165gr in that of women, it is already clear that this sharp arrow requires that the musculature of the archers and archers who want to wear it be consistent.

Of course, this is partly because of the low profile of the midsole that, rising only 23mm by the heel and 14mm by the forefoot, leaves a drop (height difference) of 9mm. The main material we find is this part of Wave Duel is U4ic, a lightweight foam that provides comfortable and reactive cushioning. The sole is divided into two types of rubber: X10 for the heel, as the area of ​​maximum wear; and especially G3 Sole, a compound with a great capacity of adhesion and that is the way to shape those tiny but sharp tacos occupy the entire middle area, to the toe and through the metatarsals. Above, Mizuno uses an AIRmesh fabric as a guarantee of ventilation and light support. See price


Mizuno Wave Emperor 3 is another competition shoe of this Japanese brand that takes care of this segment so much. In the midsole uses mainly U4ic material (the main thing is because there is also some AP + foam).

We also find the characteristic Wave piece in the heel area, as a cushioning system. Below we see that Emperor 3 uses a string of spectacular and aggressive tacos throughout the front half of the shoe. In part of the sole the durable compound X10 is used, but in the middle area, G3 is used, to improve traction. And as a good Mizuno model, the upper is not unprotected because it surprisingly has strong reinforcements, unusual for flying.

In the case of this AIRmesh mesh (which provides ventilation and lightness, as well as support) these reinforcements do not penalize the final weight, leaving it in the finish of man in 200gr, while in the finish of woman in 155gr. The drop of the midsole, in both sexes is 9mm (22mm / 13mm). See Offers.
