The Mizuno Wave Connect 2 is a standard, daily running, support shoe designed for a moderate overpronated foot motion.


The Mizuno Wave Connect 2 provides the support you need without any of the frills.  With a Wave plate running from heel to midfoot complementing a resilient midsole, this daily training shoe works with you to achieve effortless heel-to-toe transitions and a smooth ride.  SR Touch in the heel provides excellent shock attenuation, transferring shock forces to Wave plate, which are then dispersed away from the foot for ultimate comfort.

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.
  • AP+ is is Mizuno's top of-the-line, full-length copolymer midsole for a lighter, more 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.
  • SR Touch cushioning compound provides resiliency and rebound in the heel for shock absorption.


  • 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.
  • OrthoLite Sockliner is anti-microbial and moisture wicking for a healthy foot environment.
