When your friends ask if you want to go muddin', you grab your Mizuno Men's WaveAscend 8 Trail Running Shoe and hit the trails. The Wave Ascend 8 runner utilizes Wave technology, essentially suspension for your foot that also scatters point-of-impact forces, for a cushioned and stable run. Heavy-duty X-Outsole pattern accommodates unpredictable trail surfaces, without feeling blocky or dull. Beefier than Mizuno's other trail shoes, the Wave Ascend 8 offers a responsive and cushioned ride, with lots of protection.
