Low and lean, Mizuno Wave Hitogami running shoes deliver an efficient and stable ride that delivers the confidence to run fast. Replacing both the Wave Musha and Wave Ronin, these shoes are lightweight and fit securely around your feet. The vivid design is inspired by Kabuki theater face paint that transforms actors into Hitogami, which means Human Gods.

Upper: AIRmesh™ upper enhances airflow and flexibility. Synthetic overlays deliver lightweight support. Lightly padded tongue and heel collar enhance instep comfort. Lace-up front provides an adjustable fit.

Midsole: Mizuno Wave Plate dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a smoother, more cushioned feel on every step. Parallel Wave in the heel disperses shock and provides lightweight cushioning and enhances stability. U4iC midsole provides resiliency and a smooth ride at a fraction of the weight of traditional midsoles. Removable insole.

Outsole: X10® durable carbon rubber outsole allows for longer wear in high impact areas and supplements traction at heel strike. SmoothRide Engineering™ minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible.


Runner's World Best Debut
Summer Shoe Guide 2014

"Mizuno continues to consolidate its offerings with good success. Previously, it killed both the Wave Precision and Wave Elixir—lightweight trainers—and replaced them with the Wave Sayonara, which we awarded Best Debut last fall (September 2013 issue). The all-new Hitogami replaces two lighter, race-ready shoes—the Wave Musha and Wave Ronin. While this shoe is slightly heavier than both of those, its firm cushioning makes it well suited for middle-distance races. 'I could run a fast 5-K or 10-K in them, but I don't think I'll wear them in races longer than that,' says David Alm, a speedy runner from New York City who has also written articles for this magazine. The company’s signature Wave plate extends only under the heel and arch, allowing the forefoot to remain close to the roadway for a responsive feeling."

Favorite Mizuno So Far!

By sramsey22

from West Virginia, United States

I switched to Mizuno running shoes about a year ago. First I tried the support shoe, but it was too heavy on my foot. I kept getting blisters every time I ran. These shoes are amazing! They are super light, and comfortable. They also have a wider toe bed, and I haven't gotten any blisters yet :)

These shoes are a wonderful replacement to the Wave Ronin 3 shoes that I have worn for the last couple years, training and racing in these shoes I have set numerous PR's and qualified the the USATF world Cup in China last year. Will be wearing these into next years Olympic Trials. Thanks Mizuno!!

Finally a shoe similar to the Wave Elixirs!

By ktlynn33

from Missouri, United States

I ran in Mizuno's Wave Elixirs for quite a few years, then they discontinued them. I was told by the local running store that the Wave Sayonara's replaced them so they should work the same for my feet/gait. I went through 2 pairs of Sayonara's before I was finished waiting for them to "work" for me...I kept getting shin splints. I emailed Mizuno customer service reps and they suggested the Wave Hitogami's; I bought a pair and so far, so good. They feel more like the Elixirs (like I hardly even have a shoe on)...very light; almost put a spring to my step(s)! Thank You for your help Mizuno reps! I do secretly hope the Elixirs make a reapperance some day. :)

Best racing shoes ever. Please don't discontinue!

By TinyTerror

from Charleston, SC, United States

After Mizuno discontinued a few pairs of their shoes that I loved (Wave Precision, Wave Ronin, & Wave Elixir), I had to find a new shoe. I really like the Mizuno brand and wanted to stick with them, so when I caught the Wave Hitogami on sale, I decided to try them out to replace my discontinued shoes. These shoes have kept me from jumping ship to find another brand. Plus, they are very cute and stylish, and I love the bright colors. I run approximately 35-40 mpw, and like many runners, I rotate through a few pairs of shoes for weekly runs. I use these for my 5-7 mile tempo runs, track sessions, or short races (10K and below). They'd also be really good for boot camp classes that also involve running or general cross training. These shoes are VERY light and also have a low drop for Mizuno, so if you're used to a heavier trainer with more cushioning and a higher drop, it might take a few runs for you to get used to these shoes. You definitely feel the ground in these but all my runs in them seem pretty fast, it's almost as if the shoe helps you develop a more midfoot strike. I use these as a daily trainer, others might use them as a racing flat, especially if you need more cushioning. I would recommend them for anyone doing shorter races such as 5Ks and 10Ks or racing a half marathon, and they are a great replacement for the discontinued Ronin or Elixir. I hope these shoes stay in Mizuno's lineup for a long time.

Great shoe, but...

By Franny

from Utah County, UT, United States

I used to run in the Wave Ronins before they were discontinued. This shoe is comparable to the Ronin, but feels a little heavier and the ride is not as firm (really wish it had these features). I love this shoe, but I run 30-45 miles a week and the shoes wear out completely after two months of running. I have been through 5 pairs this year.
