When you're into your 25th year you must be onto a good thing. The Rider 25 doesn't let the legacy of this iconic shoe down with Mizuno's responsive Enerzy foam now running heel-to-toe as well as featuring a redesigned stabilising wave plate.
Neutral runners. Long distance runners. Those after a neutral shoe with structural integrity. Those after a smooth ride.
What we like
Understated, minimalist upper.
Very comfortable and responsive underfoot.
The new waveplate both looks great and has allowed for softer foam to be used throughout the whole midsole.
A worthy tribute to 25 years of the Wave Rider; this is looking and feeling like the best one yet!
