Long considered one of the better running shoes on the market, Mizuno's Wave Rider is back for its 18th iteration. This time around the main attracting is the kinetic energy of Hado, an intrinsic life-force energy that exists in all living beings and has the ability to create powerful transitions.

The concept of Hado is carried out in the Wave Rider 18 through its sleek, dynamic design which relays the power and kinetic energy of running to give you the most out of every run. As its name suggests, the sneaker also comes with Mizuno's patented Wave technology to deliver maximum responsiveness and a harmonious feel. For added durability and an improved underfoot feel, Mizuno included a Dynamotion Fit upper, as well as a modified outsole pattern.
