Sandwiched in between the foam of Mizuno running shoes, the Wave technology is made of a Pebax material that features wave-like patterns engineered to amp up comfort and support. How does it do this? 

  • It creates a balance of stiffness and rigidity, preventing deformation as the foot lands. The cushion basically guides the foot forward, preventing unwanted side-to-side movements. 
  • To optimize comfort, it attenuates shock during foot strikes. It also turns impact shock into energy, powering the strides of the athlete for a more propulsive ride.
