The Mizuno Wave Aero 13 is a racing flat and performance uptempo running shoe ideal for distance road, track, and XC races.


Fly across the course in the Mizuno Wave Aero 13.  This long distance racing shoe now features a U4ic midsole for the same protection as its predecessor, but in a lighter package.  SmoothRide technology provides an superb transition from heel-to-toe, while a snug-fitting upper offers a performance fit that excels in racing or uptempo workouts.

Model Number:


  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the heel to the midfoot, creating a springy and well-cushioned ride.
  • U4ic is a lightweight midsole that provides optimal shock absorption, durability and a resilient ride.
  • Smooth Ride is a gender-specific network of grooves that minimizes acceleration and deceleration of the foot to create a smooth heel-to-toe ride.


  • X10 located in the heel and forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.
  • Blown rubber in the forefoot increases cushioning and responsiveness.


  • 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.
