The Mizuno Wave Rider 12, released in 2008 and winner of the Runner`s World Editor`s Choice Award, is a neutral-stride, cushion running shoe built for shock absorption, durability and flexibility. Available for men and women, it features improved heel cushion over previous versions.
The Wave Rider features a composite parallel wave for shock absorption that disperses impact throughout the midsole, which is made of a copolymer intended to increase rebound. The heel also features a shock absorbing technology known as VS-1. The outsole is made of X10, a durable, high-traction carbon rubber. It also features Intercool technology to transfer heat out of the shoe through small holes on the outsole. The upper part of the shoe is made of breathable mesh and antimicrobial foam.
