This "SSW" version of the Mizuno Wave Rider 26 has all of the same great features as the Wave Rider 26, but swaps out the jacquard mesh fabric upper for a soft, smooth stretch woven version that looks stylish and hugs your foot for a great fit.
This reliable workhorse offers more cushion and energy return in this new version than ever before. Mizuno added 2 mm of Mizuno’s ENERZY foam for a more propulsive and plush ride. The castor bean, bio-based wave plate in the midsole gives you balance, propulsion and efficiency during your run. Plus, the new wave materials emit 25% less CO2 emissions than normal PEBAX.
A connected forefoot outsole design provides for a snappier, more propulsive toe-off, while the X10 heel rubber increases durability. A jacquard mesh upper with a gusseted tongue hugs the foot comfortably and securely making it one of the best shoes for running and walking. Lightweight, propulsive and cushioned, the Mizuno Wave Rider 26 is a great all-around daily trainer.
