Product Review: Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Shoes

Here is a quick product review on the Mizuno Wave Rider 13. These are a very light-weight neutral show, they weight in at roughly 10.5 oz and really feel like there is not much there at all, in a good way. Both pairs of Mizuno shoes I have had were really nice, very light-weight and made you feel fast. The upper portion of the shoes has great ventilation to keep you feet cool during the hot January runs. They do provide a bit of support, but it is definitely a neutral shoe and quite minimal.

It does have a noticeable heel, which is fairly soft and provides good cushioning if you are a heal striker. I am very much a mid foot striker, meaning my foot hits the ground mostly on the balls of my feet, so this added heal support is really a waste for me. I have put about 150 miles on them on the treadmill and outside in the cold and they seem to be holding up well. I would recommend these to runners that are looking for a light-weight, neutral shoe that doesn't mind or could use a little more heal cushioning.


  1. I know you put them as available at Running Warehouse but check out for a cheaper price fyi!

  2. This is a good review about mizuno shoes and I love mizuno shoes, this is a good shoes for running.

  3. Mizuno have been in the market for many years. Mizuno Wave Rider 13 is tested and is good for runners but also applicable to the people like me who's into body building.
