The Mizuno Wave Rider 16 running shoe is built for the neutral to underpronator who requires enhanced cushioning. Showcasing a uniquely shaped midsole, Mizuno Wave Technology® absorbs impact forces and spreads the energy through the entire foot, creating a smoother, softer ride. SmoothRide Engineering™ offers a rocking-chair-like transition from heel to toe, which promotes a efficient running motion and propels your forward. For responsive energy return, the lightweight AP+ midsole promises a "bouncier" feel. Dynamotion Fit™ nearly eliminates discomfort caused by the upper rubbing on your foot's arch, reducing buckling and heightening the fit. The mesh upper increases airflow to keep you feet cool and dry. Synthetic suede overlays on the forefoot add long-lasting durability. Wt. 8.2 oz.
