The new Mizuno Wave Rider 17 is finally here!
This update really shakes things up a bit for Mizuno. The new Rider features a totally new midsole platform, using their new “U4iC” foam which is 30% lighter than AP+, their previous midsole foam. This allows the Wave Rider to shed some serious weight! The men’s size 9 weighs in at 8.6 oz, making it 14% lighter than the Rider 16! The outsole also shakes things up by ditching the carbon rubber used in the previous model in favor of a lighter softer blown rubber. The upper sports a fresh new design that minimizes overlays and stitching, while still retaining some structure. Overall, this update is not just a paint job, there’s some serious changes under the hood. Come on by today to try on a pair!
Weight: 8.6 oz
