Mizuno Wave rider 17


I recently received Mizunos new Wave rider 17 for review through my ambassadorship with Fitfluential.

I’m a huge Mizuno fan, I have trained and raced  in them for most of my marathons. They provide enough support and seem to last me about 300 miles each so I am able to get through my training and the race from beginning to end!

Wave riders are made to last, they are designed to provide support for high mileage.

You know what would make a great gift this year for Christmas?

These babies come out tomorrow!!!!

They retail for $114.99

They come in 3 different colors:



I snapped a pic of mine as soon as I opened the box. I get the chills as soon as I put new running shoes on my feet! It is amazing! I couldn’t wait to run in them..


So the next day I did!

The Key features of the Waveriders 17 are:

  • U4ic midsole delivers lightweight, resilient cushioning.


  • Dissolving upper fit with new DMF execution and soft, supple mesh materials.
  • SmoothRide Engineering for a brilliant run.


  • Lateral Forefoot Sculpting for smooth touchdown and transition.
  • Blown rubber forefront with deep flex grooves for optimal flexibility and cushioning.



I have done a few runs outside and a few runs on the treadmill.



I have the attention span of a 3 year old on the treadmill but in 3 miles and my runs outside the last week and a half, I could tell that these are the bees knees.

In comparison to the 16’s, they seemed to have a little larger toe box which I LOVE and they are a little lighter, weighing in  at 7.4 ounces!

Here is a fun treadmill workout I did tonight in my wave rider 17!


I love shoes that are light and provide support as well! I need a little cushion for the pushin! Especially during marathon season!

Overall, I love these shoes. They are a neutral shoe, comfy, and designed for high mileage so are perfect for any marathoner out there that love Mizuno’s as well! They would be great for a wide variety of runners! If you haven’t tried them I recommend you RUN (don’t walk) to your nearest running shoe store and try these on for size.


What is your favorite running shoe?

How often do you get new running shoes?
