Mizuno wave rider 21 review

This incredible shoe just turned 21! Hard to believe. The Mizuno Wave Rider has been a staple on our shoe wall for more than two decades as a go-to trainer for people that want a shoe that is lightweight, responsive, and snappy.

The newest iteration of the Rider has been getting five-star reviews from our customers, and after we put it on and took it out for a run, we can understand why.

Here’s what’s new and exciting about the Rider 21:

IMPROVED SOCKLINER & HEEL COUNTER

A retooled sockliner (the insert inside the shoe) offers you a softer step-in feel, while a softer heel counter wraps your heel comfortably, helping prevent slippage and blisters.

ENGINEERED MESH

The upper on this shoe is more comfortable than ever, thanks to AIRmesh – an engineered mesh that offers more breathability and wraps the foot like a glove.

 

Plus, Mizuno is running this totally adorable ad campaign around the Wave Rider‘s 21st birthday. Here’s some of the imagery:
