The Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 Running Shoe delivers mile after mile of light, cushioned, stable fun. The Mizuno U4iC Wave midsole has been designed to be unlike other shoe technologies. When the foot touches the ground, Wave reduces and redirects impact forces away from it. Acting a lot like a car's suspension, it cushions and keeps the foot centred in the shoe throughout your stride. Mizuno are equipping different shoes to fit the unique stride of different runners, through the development of multiple wave shapes; if it's a local jog or running past the 20 mile marker, Wave will always feel amazing underfoot. Working together with DynamotionTM Fit, the materials and design of the shoe work with the foot as it twists, bends and stretches, allowing the upper to move with you. Flex eyelets help keep the heel secure by allowing the upper to stretch and contract as required. DynamotionTM Fit incorporates flex mesh which helps to eliminate the bunching and pulling that can cause blisters. The Inspire 11 also features Mizuno Intercool, a full-length ventilation system that removes heat and humidity, delivering a cool, dry and comfortable ride. SmoothRide is designed to give the most fluid, rocking chair-like motion possible in every step. Flex grooves in the heel promote natural movement from the back of the foot to the front whilst flex controllers in the forefoot continue it forward, giving the foot a more solid platform at toe-off. The Wave Inspire 11 is constructed with an AIRmesh upper to maintain a high standard of breathability, allowing the foot to stay cool. The X-10 outsole represents Mizuno's most durable carbon rubber, allowing for longer wear in high impact areas and enhancing traction at heel strike.
From the manufacturer
A stability shoe well suited to overpronators looking for a shoe that can be used as a daily trainer. This update contains a new Wave plate (a firmer plastic insert sandwiched in the midsole which acts as a shock absorber) on the medial side of the heel for shock absorption and pronation control. The shoe also contains Mizuno’s U4ic midsole foam – 30 per cent lighter than previous materials, but without any loss of cushioning. A refined ‘toe spring’ – the upward curve of the shoe from the ball of the foot to the tip of the toe – offers a quicker roll through onto the upturned toe. Extra rubber under the ball of the foot provides a firmer feel while the all-new breathable mesh upper wraps around the foot.
The Types of Running Shoe
These road shoes have a cushioned foam midsole to absorb impact when the foot hits the ground during running. They can vary widely in weight and levels of cushioning from thicker midsoles with lots of underfoot padding to lower-profile models that offer a closer connection with the road.
These road shoes have support features built into the midsole, such as stiffer inserts or firmer foam on the inner (medial) side of the sole, designed to reduce overpronation the excessive inward rolling of the foot during running. Shoes designed for severe overpronators are sometimes called motion control shoes.
Designed for running off road, trail shoes are generally more ruggedly built than road shoes. They offer cushioning with a deeper tread for more grip on variable surfaces, and features such as reinforced toes and gusseted tongues to keep out debris.
Race and Lightweight
Shoes in this category are all lighter than average, but vary beyond this. Performance shoes are designed for racing, while minimal (or natural) shoes are stripped down and low-profile to offer a little cushioning but still allow your foot to move naturally. Barefoot shoes are lightest and most flexible, offering protection and grip but little or no cushioning.

I already had a pair of these - I've covered over 500miles in my first pair and I've recently purchased a second pair.
Love them to bits. Extremely light, cool and comfortable.
