Updates to Mizuno Wave Aero 15
- The major enhancement of the Mizuno Wave Aero 15 was done in its upper. It comes with a new upper design with a more precise midfoot fit, improving comfort and overall running experience.
- Due to the changes in the upper design of the shoe, the 15th version of the Mizuno Wave Aero 15 is much lighter compared to its predecessor. It also makes the shoe performs faster for race day.
Mizuno Wave Aero 15 size and fit
When it comes to sizing, the Wave Aero 15 has a standard shoe size. It comes with a precise midfoot fit, providing a snug and anatomical wrap for a more comfortable running experience. Just like the Wave Creation 20 running shoe, the Aero 15 is available in standard D width for men and B width for women.
Just like its predecessor, the Wave Aero 15 uses the brand’s X10 outsole technology that is designed to deliver a combination of traction at heel strike and durability for longer wear. This works perfectly with the blown rubber material that provides added durability on high impact areas.
The shoe features the notable Mizuno Wave Technology that is designed for a smoother and well cushioned ride. The elastic, plastic thermal wave extended from the heel to the midfoot provides a springy ride.
The Smooth Ride technology, a network of gender-specific groves, delivers a rocking-chair like feel for a smoother heel to toe transition.
Lastly, the shoe features the Mizuno U4iC midsole that is strategically placed in the midsole for a stress-free well-cushioned ride. It absorbs shock during impact and releases energy for high rebounds. It is specifically designed for an energized and comfortable run.
The Mizuno Wave Aero 15 comes with a new upper design. However, it still utilizes the brand’s AIRmesh upper material that provides maximum breathability and comfort. With the Dynamotion Fit, the shoe provides maximum stretchy fit in the forefoot. The shoe wraps the foot anatomically with a precise midfoot fit and the heel collar secures the foot comfortably.
