Wave Inspire 10 is a shoe that evokes support, cushioning, speed and all-round performance in a superlight package. It’s a must-try sensation for anyone who over pronates – the style of shoe chosen by 60 per cent of runners. The combination of the supple supportive upper, Mizuno’s Wave and the revolutionary new U4iC technology (offering less weight and more comfort) puts this shoe at the top of the support class. The innovative technology of SR touch and a lighter ride that comes from Mizuno’s U4iC material – 30 per cent lighter than before – gives the shoe a featherweight feel, which is enhanced by the minimalist upper.Weight 250g
A Dynamotion Fit™ cage takes out the fuss, but retains the support around the foot. Reinforcement is welded onto the inside of the lateral and medial side of the shoe, giving all the support you need without building in extra weight or seams, or unnecessary structure, so you’ll avoid heat build-up and blisters, but hold your foot in the right position.
And that all-important first comfort – the moment when you first put the shoe on – has improved with Wave Inspire 10. A new premium sockliner provides a more cushioned and softer feel.
The platform has also been updated with a blown rubber outsole replacing previous heavier rubber, but there’s no compromise on durability. And the flexible forefoot has a widened gauge giving a more supportive platform.
The Wave Inspire six and seven were in the kill-zone for stability, the nine revived this and the 10 tops them all! Now stability is improved further with the new Wave construction: the Wave positioned slightly further back offers more control at the beginning of the gait cycle.
The new SmoothRide forefoot, with a bevelled edge on the lateral forefoot gives a softer landing and eases the speed of pronation. And in Mizuno’s treadmill tests its performance in terms of ‘smoothness’ has improved by 31 per cent compared to the extremely popular Wave Inspire 9.
