The Wave® Rider ™ 15 returns to the fit, feel and high performance ride the series is renowned for.
Upper: AIRMesh™ with synthetic overlays for support provides the utmost in breathability and comfort of the upper. Dynamotion Fit™ relieves the stress the foot naturally places on footwear and eliminates distortion in the collar and heel during the gait cycle for a perfect fit.
Midsole: The Mizuno Wave® is a leading footwear technology that combines cushioning and stability, two distinctly different elements that are both inherently necessary in great running shoes. Gender specific engineering is a philosophy to maximize performance by tailoring footwear to the separate needs of men and women. Women's gender specific engineering provides a Flex lines in the heel and forefoot. The Mizuno Wave™ is SmoothRide™ Engineered. This SmoothRide™ Engineering approach is used to minimize the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible. AP+ enhances the inherent properties of the AP midsole, offering increased rebound and a "bouncier" feeling, which extends the cushion durability, while maintaining the light weight performance. VS-1 Shock-absorbing cushioning compound is found in the heel to absorb the forces from heel strike. The Mizuno Intercool Full-length midsole ventilation system reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe. A removable sockliner provides a responsive first feel.
24mm heel height, 12mm forefoot height.
Outsole: X-10™ featured in this shoe is the most durable carbon rubber that allows for longer wear in high impact areas and supplements traction at heel strike. SmoothRide Engineered, a solid rubber forefoot outsole design for durability and cushioning, now with flex controllers built to optimize flexibility.
Available in width B (Medium).

The Wave® Rider™ 15 addresses the fundamental differences between the way men and women run. Through extensive research, Mizuno has learned that creating shoes that fit closer to these specific running styles, performance is maximized.
Women have a wider pelvis than men causing them to pronate more when their feet land. Additionally, less muscle mass and softer connective tissue in women increases the speed at which the ankle rolls inward. By making their shoes more flexible with more pronounced flex grooves and the outside heel more rounded, Mizuno produced a softer landing, slowing the inward roll of the ankle, producing a more desired result for female runners.
