Mizuno's long distance cruiser is often overshadowed by the Wave Rider, but the Skyrise 2 is no shrinking violet. It is very comfortable and will soak up many miles.

First impressions

Perhaps a little overshadowed or indeed overlooked because of the brand’s more familiar neutral cushioned model, the Wave Rider, this shoe offers a soft, premium cushioned feel in perhaps a more relaxed feel. Whereas the Rider feels a little quicker and livelier, the Wave Skyrise feels like a long-distance cruiser, happy to float along for mile after mile.


The brand’s ENERZY foam is encapsulated within the Wave cushioning midsole and adds a soft yet responsive feel to the overall ride.


The new knitted upper adds to this feeling, being incredibly comfortable and very accommodating, even for those with a slightly broader or higher volume foot shape.


Whist being a road running shoe we also found the design of the sole to be perfectly adequate on varied terrain and it coped well on some dirt tracks and gravel paths we tried it on.


Overall, it’s a very accomplished shoe with a soft, smooth ride that feels much more like a shoe at a higher price point.
