Mizuno continues the iconic Wave Rider line with the introduction of the 26th model

The Wave Rider 26 offers a refined form of Mizuno’s most notable neutral running shoe. 

Peachtree Corners, GA – (September 22, 2022) – Mizuno, a global leader in sports apparel and equipment, has launched the 26th model of the Wave Rider series. The Wave Rider 26 offers a carefully balanced experience of unrivaled propulsion and indescribable comfort. The Wave Rider models have established a notorious reputation for being an ideal neutral shoe that offers a smooth ride with every run.

This latest rendition of the Wave Rider model offers a more cushioned midsole, striking outsole design, and soft, breathable upper. The Wave Rider 26 also includes MIZUNO ENERZY (FOAM) allotting for maximum cushion, while the MIZUNO WAVE® plate disperses energy from the impact to a broader area, providing not only a stable platform but also prime cushioning.

Mizuno’s Product manager Tina Danforth shared, “This latest evolution of the Wave Rider series features an extra 2mm of midsole foam that should give you an extra feeling of plushness for your ride. Combine that with a snappier midsole for our Rider loyalists; this version will feel both softer and smoother to get you through any run!”

The Wave Rider 26 is sure to be your everyday running shoe, as durability is not a worry. The X10 Outsole is constructed from durable carbon rubber that allows for longer wear; meanwhile, the Engineered Mesh Upper is both breathable and durable for high performance. The Wave Rider 26 is your newest running companion that feels as good as it looks.
