The Wave Inspire 12 has the lightweight support and stability you need to run farther and longer. An improved upper provides a soft-yet-structural fit and increased blown rubber for maximum durability.
The Inspire 12 was engineered to add support without adding weight. Great for overpronators, the Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 has a redesigned U4ic midsole platform to give you softer touch down every step of your run.
Mizuno Wave - Sleeker, lighter cushioning and support
The genesis for Wave came as Mizuno's engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly. Inspired by nature’s simple efficiency, we created the world’s first and most effective mechanical midsole - the Mizuno Wave.
- Disperses impact forces away from foot
- Progressive, tuneable support
- Lightweight, compact, responsive
- Doesn’t break down over time
SmoothRide - Fluid motion at every step of your run
SmoothRide begins working the moment your foot touches the ground. Flex Grooves in the heel promote natural movement from the back of your foot to the front, initiating that rocking-chair motion. Mizuno's AP+ Midsole gives the shoe a bouncier feel and Flex Grooves and Flex Controllers in the forefoot work together to smoothly continue the roll forward to give your foot a more solid platform at toe-off.
- Smooth, rocking motion throughout your stride
- Increased flexibility
- More power at toe-off
- Bouncier ride
