The Mizuno Corporation has remained true to their corporate philosophy since they were founded in 1906 which in-part states their goal of “advancing sports through cutting edge technology and research.”
One of Mizuno’s products that meets this criteria is their newest version of Wave Inspire 9 running shoes.

Right amount of support
An important part of a running shoe is the amount of support in them. Support should not be too soft; neither should the it have a stiff sole. TheMizuno Inspire 9 is built to give support for moderate overpronators; that means those of us whose feet naturally turn inward a little.
The main area of support is on the medial side (inner portion) where it’s important to have extra support in the midsole. In the case of this pair of sneakers, Mizuno uses plastic plates that are inserted into the midsole that help correct the over pronation motion. This helps people with flat feet from putting too much pressure on certain areas of the foot and distributes the impact forces in a more balanced manner.
This version of the Wave Inspire are light as a feather. The lightweight, glove-like fit will make you forget you still have any footwear on. Some runners even do their errands running in their these because they feel so comfortable. The lighter weight can be attributed in part from the mesh upper, which also adds a comfortable airflow around your foot. They also removed a lot of the overlays that do contribute to the weight, essentially leaving you with the most important components.
While foot support and stability are the most important elements of running shoes, great colors can be an additional plus to brighten your attitude, specially if looks are important to you. This is partially why Nike is such a great seller among the younger generation.
These pair come in several bright and bold colors for women (Zinnia, Malibu Blue, and Anthracite/Silver/Aruba Blue) and for men (Lime Punch, Malibu Blue/Blazing Yellow/Black, and Silver).
