The Mizuno Wave Kazan 2 is a standard, varied-surface, neutral trail running shoe best suited for daily training.


The Mizuno Wave Kazan 2 is built to keep you moving through unpredictable terrain. An AIRmesh upper with increased durability along with stitched overlays keeps your feet locked-in no matter where the trail leads. Aggressive X-shaped lugs on the outsole provide exceptional multi-directional traction, and a responsive midsole helps cushion your feet from trail hazards.
