‘Men’s Fitness’ Features Mizuno Wave Musha 3

It’s not everyday someone names the best shoes out there. But that’s exactly what the editors at Men’s Fitness did in its April issue.

Mizuno Wave Musha 3 was their top choice for racing shoes. To be more specific, the magazine called the Musha 3’s flashy flats that are “light and fast but have enough support and cushioning to keep your feet from getting battered on asphalt.”

The other picks included in the write-up were New Balance 890s for added cushioning and Saucony ProGrid Mirage for support.

Why did they pick the Mizuno Wave Musha 3 as the best racing shoe?

Perhaps it’s because the unisex shoe is lightweight at 7.8 ounces and highly breathable with its Mizuno AIRmesh upper. It was designed for pesky over-pronating, which happens especially for those with flat feet. The forefoot contains blown rubber that adds to the shoe’s overall feather-like weight, flexibility and grip.

When you wear the Musha 3, you are also wearing Mizuno’s trademark wave technology. This technology was born from the natural shape of a wave. The idea is to create shape that pushes the foot through an entire stride. By doing this, it will take impact forces away from the foot for a smoother ride.

  1. I am recovering from an ankle injury and one of the things I have been struggling with is getting back to a normal gait. I was struggling to push off with my toes since the injury, and my physical therapist recommended these shoes to me. They truly provide support throughout the entire stride to help me achieve a normal gate again. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone who is also recovering from an ankle injury and is experiencing gate abnormality. I also started wearing quarter socks quarter socks due to the shoe being low cut, and this will also help prevent foot sweat from ruining these.
