The Wave Horizon 5 takes stability shoes to a new level of comfort. This shoe is designed for runners looking for a maximum stability shoe with no compromise on the cushioning and comfort underfoot. This creates a beautiful smooth and supportive running experience. The introduction to the Mizuno Enerzy foam to the midsole has added a softer and more bouncy underfoot feel in comparison to previous versions of Wave Horizon (or other stability shoes) which can often be quite firm (not necessarily a bad thing, just a personal preference thing!). The new updated upper offers more padding to add to a premium comfort feel and provide a solid and stable lock in that will enhance your long daily runs.
