Top Reasons to Buy the Women’s Mizuno Wave Rider 21

Experience elevated performance with the Triple Zone engineered mesh upper in the latest iteration of Mizuno’s Wave Rider series. Shaped from incredibly lightweight and breathable AIRmesh, the Wave Rider 21 features a unique design that allows the shoe to twist, bend, and flex with every movement so you receive the most natural ride possible.

Want a little extra cushion when you hit the streets? The Wave Rider 21 has got you covered. With Mizuno Wave Technology that delivers plush interior padding, a supportive heel, and comfortable stability, your feet will be so happy they’re bound to take you faster and farther than ever before.

There’s nothing more frustrating than purchasing new shoes only to watch them fall apart after a month of use. Avid runners know how important it is to invest in durable shoes, and the Wave Rider 21 is built to last. With sturdy X10 carbon rubber outsoles, the Wave Rider 21 resists typical wear-and-tear in high impact areas so you can trust them to carry you across the finish line.

Women’s Mizuno Wave Rider 21 Updates

Fans of the Wave Rider series are in for a treat. The 21 offers a plusher in-foot feeling thanks to the redesigned mesh upper and anatomical sock liner that kicks the comfort up a couple notches. Mizuno die-hards will also be pleased with the additional padding on the heel area that alleviates stress on the Achilles tendon.

Size and Fit of the Women’s Mizuno Wave Rider 21

General Size and Fit

The Wave Rider 21 features a 12mm heel-to-toe drop to encourage a well-supported run. To get the best fit possible, try going up half a shoe size from your true shoe size. The Wave Rider 21 comes in two widths: women’s normal and women’s wide.


The Wave Rider 21 is constructed with Dynamotion Fit technology to emulate the natural strike pattern of your feet for a responsive and smooth ride. The stretchy Triple Zone mesh effortlessly contours each distinct section of the foot to provide a barely-there feeling. If you’re prone to accidentally slipping out of your shoe during a run, the complete lace-up closure system on the tongue will keep your feet firmly in place.


Want a little extra spring in your step? The Wave Rider 21’s unique Cloudwave midsole delivers unbeatable cushioning while giving more energy back to your stride with every impact. The U4ic foam is 30% lighter than standard Mizuno midsole materials, and the U4icX heel wedge cushions your feet to optimize the softest underfoot feel yet.


Don’t sacrifice outsole flexibility for durability when you can have both. X10 carbon rubber prevents damage to high-impact areas while blown rubber enhances the range of motion in the forefoot. Flex Controllers add an extra layer of detailed flexibility to ensure you always feel connected to the ground and in control of your route.
