Mizuno Wave Inspire 9 Men's Running Shoe

Mizuno’s Wave Inspire series is one of the most popular daily trainers in the support category. The winning blend of cushioning, a smooth ride, and moderate stability is topped off with a great fitting upper, all coming together into a shoe with a considerable fan base.

With a sizeable decrease in weight expected for version 9, we think the Inspire series will continue to be a big win for Mizuno.

What to Watch For

  • Revised Upper: A new overlay pattern increases forefoot flexibility and improves overall fit. The Inspire 9 gets some bold, bright colors too.
  • Lower Weight: Both Men’s and Women’s models are slimmed down, with Running Warehouse measuring sample shoes at 10.1 oz (Men’s size 9) and 8.3 oz (Women’s size 8).
  • Carryover Platform: The mid/outsole from the Inspire 8 will continue in the updated version.
