The MIZUNO WAVE technology was introduced into Mizuno running shoes in 1997, with the Wave Rider 1 debuting a wave shaped plate. Since then, the brand has evolved and perfected this technology to suit all types of runners with a range of different wave constructions, each made for a specific type of runner. It provides a unique combination of cushioning and stability, and it is key to the propulsive feeling of the Wave Rider 25. The MIZUNO WAVE plate of the new Wave Rider 25 is now also
sustainable, made of castor oil derived from castor beans.
