Mizuno, a Japanese brand, was started in 1906 by brothers Rihachi and Rizo Mizuno. 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 ‘Wave’ cushioned shoe in 2007. This commitment to technical product design continues to this day.
The Mizuno running shoe range at Run4It includes the Wave Sky 3, Wave Rider 23 and Wave Inspire 16. For neutral runners, the Wave Rider 3 provides a balanced feeling between cushioning and responsiveness. Runners looking for more cushioning should opt for the ultra-soft Wave Sky 3 as it is designed to create a floating sensation on long runs. Support Wave technology is used in the Wave Inspire 16 to create a stability responsive shoe that provides lightweight structure.
