The Mizuno Wave Kizuna is a cross country racing shoe intended for distances up to 10k. This shoe has a curved shape.


  • Mizuno Wave extends from the heel to the midfoot and is composed of an elastic thermal plastic material shaped in a parallel wave pattern. This corrugated design allows for vertical deformation during heel strike to absorb impact.
  • AP+ is is Mizuno's top of-the-line, full-length copolymer midsole for a lighter, more resilient ride.


  • AIRmesh provides light, breathable coverage.
  • Dynamotion Fit creates optimal fit using stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.
  • G3 Sole consists of a lightweight rubber dot pattern in the forefoot for increased grip and flexibility.
  • Rubber Plate is located in the forefoot and is engineered for flexibility and durability.
  • Textured Rubber is utilized in the heel for additional grip.
  • Contains 6 spike receptacles per shoe.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Best $17 ever spent. Run on/off road in these without the spikes. Normally run in minimalist type shoes and these are my "heavy" shoes for longer runs, usually on trails. They definitely run small..take the site advice and go 1/2 size up.
