Big G Says…
The Wave Rider 22 (Comrades edition) is possibly the most under-rated shoe now available in SA. lt has been Mizuno's most successful model for many years and has generally retained all the essential features that made it so popular. Just ask anyone who has owned a pair and you are most unlikely to hear a complaint.
Many features are very traditional-the upper is a non-knit engineered mesh with a standard toe cap and heel counter with a wide toe box.
The 12mm heel toe drop that has served many generations of runners is retained and the dual density midsole cushioning is very similar to the popular Brooks Ghost 11 and the New Balance 880. The Pebax wave plate sandwiched between the 2 layers of cushioned foam helps stabilise the foot plant and gives more longevity to the shock absorption properties of the shoe.
Runner's World summarises the Wave Rider 22 as soft, smooth and speedy, and the fact that it has been produced in a 'Comrades Edition' suggests that no distance is too far for this shoe.
