The Mizuno Wave Enigma 4 is a premium, daily running, neutral shoe designed for a neutral foot motion.


Plush cushioning just got lighter in the innovative Mizuno Wave Enigma 4.  With a lightweight U4ic midsole and a full-length Wave plate, this everyday trainer offers unparalleled shock absorption for every distance.  A cooling system built into the midsole keeps your feet cool and dry for those high mileage days, while a secure heel collar and midfoot wrap provide a stable fit that you can rely on.

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.
  • SR Touch cushioning compound provides resiliency and rebound in the heel for shock absorption.
  • Intercool ventilation system in the midsole inhibits humidity buildup, keeping feet cool and dry.


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