Delivering a pure performance experience
Inspired by our iconic Wave technology, Mizuno introduces the WAVEKNIT. With a performance enhancing knitted wave construction on the upper, this innovative material provides a breathable, natural yet dynamic sock-like fit thanks to its unique stretch and hold ability.
While the upper is constructed without any reinforcements, the Wave pattern is designed to provide hold and stability, compensating for any stretch in other areas of the knit to make a natural and dynamic fit possible.
The dual ability to stretch and hold gives the WAVEKNIT a very dynamic fit. During your run, the knitted upper not only stretches to keep the shoe feeling comfortable and not too tight, it also regulates the amount of stretch, to hold the foot in place. The idea behind such a flexible upper as WAVEKNIT is to adapt to the movement of the runner, for a more stable, comfortable experience. Although the WAVEKNIT upper isn’t reinforced like traditional running shoes, stability and hold are still provided by the interwoven design of the Wave pattern itself.
With WAVEKNIT, Mizuno delivers a pure performance experience, with no compromises. Our most technical innovations have been retained, and combined with a beautiful and unique outer design.To add the extra element of performance our WAVEKNIT range is made up of our two highest performing outsoles. The two styles we offer are made up of the Wave Rider 21 and the Wave Sky outsole.
