Mizuno Wave Rider GORE-TEX 2 Trail Running Shoes
You can't second guess the weather, but with the Wave Rider GORE-TEX 2 you can be sure you're protecting your feet inside and out.
The Wave Rider GORE-TEX 2 is designed with the worst possible weather conditions in mind, allowing you to be protected and finish your run, no matter the climate. The shoe features a GORE-TEX mesh upper designed to deal with the most testing conditions. This membrane works to keep feet dry and ensure climate comfort and breathability. GORE-TEX membranes are made up of billions of microscopic pores, smaller than a particle of water but bigger than a particle of moisture. This results in a waterproof layer that's highly breathable by allowing excess heat and moisture to leave the shoe leaving your foot cool, dry, and comfortable.
U4icX and Mizuno Wave Midsole
The Wave Rider GORE-TEX features maximum cushioning and comfort due to a U4icX bottom midsole. This light, evolutionary midsole absorbs impact and gives a higher rebound, thus fulfilling the most comfortable, energized run possible. Running feels luxurious and smooth due to Cloudwave ultra-soft cushioning, which introduces new convex geometry to provide a softer, smoother feel. This midsole and cushioning works alongside the GORE-TEX fabric to ensure the most comfortable fit and feel during the worst weather conditions. The shoe has a precise, comfortable fit with freedom of movement. This has been inspired by Mizuno's iconic Wave technology, backed by decades of being a leading manufacturer of running shoes.
This technology works to disperse impact away from the foot and give stability on any terrain, meaning a high level of performance can be combined with a pain-free and comfortable feel. This is combined with Mizuno Dynamotion Fit, based on anatomical research to create patterns that give improved garment fit and full freedom of movement. The Wave Rider GORE-TEX also features Smoothride and Mizuno Intercool technology. Smoothride minimises the rapid acceleration and de-acceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible. Mizuno Intercool uses a full-length midsole ventilation system to reduce the build-up of heat and humidity within the shoe. The Wave Rider GORE-TEX also boasts a high-grade removable in-sock that provides premium comfort, cushioning and durability.
Durable Rubber Outsole
The Wave Rider GORE-TEX is styled with an outsole pattern that not only looks stylish but provides additional traction for all surfaces. This allows you to run in the most adverse weather conditions while keeping a sturdy and secure grip, staying safe at all times.
