Smooth and Inspired: The NEW Wave Inspire 17

Mizuno is springing into 2021 – literally – with a significant update of the Mizuno Wave Inspire line, incorporating its latest foam technology, MIZUNO ENERZY. Created for runners who crave stability and breathability, the Wave Inspire collection has always been designed for ultimate comfort, cushion, lightness, and overall wearability. The latest overhaul for the Wave Inspire 17 takes that to a new level with more cushioning and responsiveness than its predecessors.

Mizuno aims to give runners everything they need to succeed, fueling their passion to new heights while also eliminating those roadblocks that stand in their way. For support runners, one roadblock typically comes in the form of a bulkier and heavier shoe. Finally, support runners can ditch that burden and enjoy a run with ultimate comfort in mind with the Wave Inspire 17. The new midsole material not only delivers a slimmer aesthetic, but it also harnesses that energy generated on impact and delivers it back to the runner with each stride – ultimately allowing runners to go further and longer with less fatigue.

Runners can choose their own upper adventure with the option to pick engineered air mesh or WAVEKNIT, whichever style is more comfortable to them.

Other notable updates include:

  • WAVEKNIT™ Technology with an embossed center of the WAVEKNIT™ pattern creating a fit and hold specific for the support wearer
  • Increased Smoothride over previous versions
  • TPU fan-shaped wave plate for softness
  • Lightweight engineered mesh upper for a cleaner look
