Features & Benefits

  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the heel to the midfoot, creating an incredibly springy and well-cushioned ride.
  • SR Touch cushioning compound provides resiliency and rebound in the heel for shock absorption.
  • Smooth Ride is a gender specific network of grooves that minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot to create a smooth heel to toe ride.
  • U4ic is a lightweight midsole that provides optimal shock absorption, durability and a resilient ride.
  • Extended Wave Plate in the midfoot is an extension of the Mizuno Wave for increased torsional rigidity between the heel and forefoot.
  • Mizuno Intercool ventilation system in the midsole inhibits humidity buildup to keep feet cool and dry.
  • Gender Engineering utilizes gender-specific attributes such as a wider base in men's shoes and additional flex grooves in women's shoes.

  • Upper
  • AIRmesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
  • Stitched Overlays on the medial and lateral sides help secure the foot in place.
  • OrthoLite Sockliner is anti-microbial and moisture wicking for a healthy foot environment.
  • Dynamotion Fit creates optimal fit with stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.

  • Outsole
  • X10 located in the heel is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.
  • Blown rubber in the forefoot increases cushioning and responsiveness.
  • Flex Controllers placed in high flex areas on the outsole act as miniature wave plates for increased flexibility and reduced weight.
    • Must haves

      Review by DmitriD (Posted on 4/6/16)

      This pair of shoes is definitely a "must haves". Improved from the thickness of a sole to the stability, I love these shoes. Bought them after had and loved so much WR 17. The drawback of WR17 was they weren't good after 400 km. I saw WR18 on the Oasis expo and sales rep explained me how better shoes had become. So, I decided to give it a shot. Now, 600 km later (tracked using my Garmin), I can tell that this is a great shoe. They still feel cushionny and supportive and I'm sure they'll last another 200-300 km easily. I use these shoes for my everyday slow/long runs primarily and HIIT from time-to-time.
