Founded in Osaka, Japan in 1906 by brothers Rihachi and Rizo Mizuno, Mizuno is one of the oldest and largest specialty sporting goods manufacturers in the world with a strong heritage in running. Science has always driven product development and their first scientific laboratory was started in 1938. Rihachi’s words "go on and create a-mon", meaning the best product for consumers, has been continuously passed down at Mizuno.
High quality product design with a persistent attention to detail has resulted in unique product innovations such as their first Mizuno ‘Wave’ cushioned running shoe in 2007. This commitment to technical product design continues to this day and has resulted in the creation of Mizuno’s revolutionary ENERZY cushioning.
