Wave Rider 17

An absolute runner’s favorite for 16 years has been refined even further. The Wave Rider 17 hits the sweet spot for a wide variety of runners. Our flagship shoe is ideal for the neutral runner with just enough support and cushioning for high mileage training. It uses our exclusive Mizuno Wave Technology for an unmatched running experience that’s ultra-smooth, lightweight, and disappears off the foot while under way. Our SmoothRide Engineering is designed for a brilliant run. Each of its elements creates harmony between you and the shoe so you barely know it’s there. A blown rubber forefoot outsole provides optimal flexibility while the sculpted lateral forefoot means a smooth touchdown. Right down to the peeling paint effect on the heal strap, this shoe exudes sleek speed all around.

    Used the wave rider 16's extensively during marathon training and liked them. I was lured to the 17's by the significant weight reduction. So having now gone through a number of pairs of 16's and 17's I will add my two cents based on my highly personal experience.

    So some stats: 6', 152 lbs. averaging 40-50 miles/week.

    For me the 17's differ from the 16's in three key respects:

    1. The 17's will not last nearly as long as the 16's. I'm through the tread and into the foam by 300 miles (unabashed heel striker). On the other hand, the 16's had less wear at 300 miles than other shoes typically have at 50 miles - they're just beasts and could easily go 500+ miles. Not a deal breaker for me given I'm at the age where I rotate out shoes at 300 miles regardless of wear. Have to save the legs...

    2. The 17's are the only shoes (of any brand) that have a break-in period for me. It takes a full 75 miles before they completely loosen up for me. Again, not a deal breaker since they were still comfortable enough to get in those long runs and don't cause blisters or the like.

    3. The 17's are light and provide plenty of cushioning for me. The payoff is that they are the only shoe I've ever worn where my feet and legs always feel great after those 20+ mile runs. And I've run in countless different models from many different manufacturers over several decades.

    Of course, your experience may vary - running shoes are very individual. Which brings me back to Amazon today - these work great for me and it's time to order a new pair!

    I'm 200lb and 6'3" with a neutral size 13 foot and have run in many, many different brands of shoes over the past nearly 8 years including Asics, Mizuno, and Nike. That said, for the past three years or so I've been happily running exclusively in Wave Riders from Mizuno.

    I read the reviews about the 17s and decided to give them a try. When I tried them on my biggest issue was with the upper and where it folds on top of the toe box when you run/walk. For me there was a pronounced pinch point on both outer sides -- but on the inside of the shoe -- of the toe box. Lacing adjustments made no difference. It would have caused me major issues within minutes of the first run and I couldn't imagine it getting any better. It wasn't stiffness or something that would "break in." For that alone I would have returned them.

    The other issue I had was the impression of overall build quality. I get that it's been redesigned to be lighter with synthetic overlays and thinner materials on the upper all around. But for me, the general impression of the upper of the shoe at this price point was not one of quality.

    As far the "looseness" that some suggest due to the synthetic overlays and lack of support, it wasn't bad. I would have at least given them a fair shake if there weren't any other major issues.

    My suggestion is to give them a try and see for yourself. The above are just my observations.

    I'm a Mizuno guy. I have been using Wave Riders for years all the way up to the 16's. I have never had to question the size until these 17's. The body is a little larger than the 16's (like Brooks Ghost). The toe box is a little large for the size making the shoe look longer (I like the toe box / hate the big shoe look) The jury is still out on whether the lighter weight is really anything to go for. I haven't raced in them yet as I had to return the first pair due to an uncomfortable right shoe and I'm just now getting some miles on the second pair I ordered. So far, so good. Suggest trying the shoes on at a store before ordering online. I'm not giving that 5th star unless I win my age group with these on. lol

    So many running shoe brands make changes to their shoes that end up making them heavier or ruin the fit. Mizuno's Wave Rider has been a consistent exception to this pitfall. These Wave Rider 17's are a slight improvement on the 16's which were a slight improvement on the 15's. If you'd wished that they'd just left the 16's the way that they were, than you won't be disappointed. They made unnoticeable slight improvements, but nothing that will cause you to hate them, if you liked them before.

    Finally Mizuno got back to a lower platform shoe.
    These shoes are great road shoes. Definitely meet up to everything that was written during reviews.

    For those who are avid fans of the Wave Rider 15 or 16, this is a great update! The 17 is a lot lighter than previous versions, but is equally as stable and has the same basic fit.

    Unlike others, I haven't really experienced any "break-in" pain. In fact, my first long run in these shoes was one of the best I've ever had.

    Overall, the Wave Rider is a great all-around running shoe with a fantastic feel that has improved dramatically in the weight category with this update.
