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.

    As an avid runner and Mizuno user for years, I am disappointed personally in the new model. I have owned and "out-mileaged" 4 pair of Wave Riders including the 14, 15 and am now my third pair of 16's. There are so many new features in the 17 it feels like a totally different shoe. Some reviewers I read noted it being a soft shoe, I found the opposite actually, and where the previous models felt like they were hugging my foot and cushioned all around, I felt as if the shoe was flat and the only cushion was limited and directly under my foot. I didn't feel the stability of the 16 (though it is a neutral stability - I feel my foot is supported well in the previous models). In the 17 my foot actually felt "lost" in the shoe and gave more of the feeling of running on a hard, flat surface - no bounce, no spring and no support. There is less cloth on the upper and the shoe just didn't feel stable on my foot. There is less padding around the ankle - which many say is an improvement, I am neutral on that point.

    Finally, there is a very visible change in the "curvature" of the shoe. Previous models of the Wave Rider had a noted rise in the toe of the shoe. With the new model, the entire sole of the shoe is flat. This is a significant change in the Wave Rider model.

    Overall, I had high hopes for the Wave Rider 17, but am very disheartened. The moment I placed the shoe on my foot I felt the significant change, running in them confirmed it. The comfort, stability (albeit minimal) and "roll" of the shoe is gone. It is a totally different shoe, quite comparable to the Sayonara which I have also run in. I really have nothing good to say about the 17, except that its release has lowered the price of the previous model, which I will be stocking up on - no intention to purchase this new model.

    I run marathons and tend to rotate many brands/models of shoes. I've previously worn the Wave Rider 10 (which I loved), 13, 15, and 16. Over time the Rider had put on weight and lost some of its feel for the road. The Rider 16 had shed some weight but I felt it rode higher than other brands I'd started wearing. Additionally, there was a stiffness to the ride that became more apparent on long runs, and I found the cushioning lacking in the metatarsal area. The 17's are well cushioned and supportive for such lightweight shoes. The overlays that were in the 16 are gone, and the heel is wider than the 16's, which may lead to sizing issues to those who liked the 16's and enjoy the traditional narrow heel and midfoot of Mizunos. I had to tweak the lacing pattern and butterfly the laces for these shoes to work for me. They may feel "flatter" to some because of the lack of midfoot "hug", and Mizuno is using a new material which is lighter weight than the old midsole compound. Mizunos have always had firmer cushion than other brands (Nike, for example) and this might be off-putting to some.The 17's also lack the toe spring of the 16's but personally I don't miss it; these feel lower to the ground even though the heel/toe offset is still 13 mm. They are quite a bit more nimble and more flexible. My suggestion for the 18 would be for Mizuno to lower the heel even further and provide greater cush in the forefoot area. Mizunos often work better for heel strikers than midfoot strikers like me due to the waveplate technology, and I'm not sure if there's a way to get around that, but the Sayonara is a successful Mizuno shoe that sports a lower heel than the traditional Rider.

    I have ran in the wave rider for about 5 years. I have always loves the various versions up till now. This is a completely different shoe, the new design caused my toes to fall asleep when running more than 3 miles. I prefer the 16.

    These are my 5th pair of these shoes and they are not meeting my expectations.

    Don't expect this shoe to be like the wave rider 16. I can't even walk well today due to the bruises I developed from the small toe box.
    My feet are considered very narrow. So, it is really strange this happened.

    My feet are throbbing tonight! I have never had anything like this happen from a running shoe. Great timing too with a big race in a week.

    I've been running in MIZUNO Wave Riders since 2007ish... used to wear Brooks. The 17s toe box is roomier, which I like, as my mileage increases, lots of blood flow in the foot makes it expand... The shoe just gets more comfortable.
    The heel feels more sturdy than the Rider's past predecessors, almost propelling you off the strike... comfortable during a mid or fore-foot strike for me too.
    I love the weight and fabric.
    My only question is how many miles they'll last. I'll let you know .

    I ran a half in these. The balls of my feet were killing me by the end. I think the tight toe box was the cause. Nothing like the wave rider 16.

    I have been buying Mizuno Wave Rider shoes for over 3 years now and never had a problem until now. I got blisters on the tops of my toes so bad now I must wear bandaids! If I'm going to pay over $100 for shoes that I've ordered in the past (exact same size and everything) I would expect them to fit the same as all the other times I purchased them.
