With over 100 years of heritage, Mizuno is (most probably) one of Japan’s most celebrated performance brand. The archive of the brand have tons of game-changing sporting designs that worth revisiting. A great example is one of their most iconics silhouettes from late ’90s — the Wave Rider 1.
After Mizuno launched the ’98 Wave Rider 1 last month in collaboration with mita sneakers, the brand also announced its relaunching — in its original (OG) form this time.
The iconic aesthetic and time-tested features are relatively unchanged: white dual-mesh and full grain leather upper with a partially black vamp, white midsole, and black outsole. Details like the signature Runbird logo appears in red on the toe box and heel counter and black on the quarter panel, outlined by gold stitching.
Each pair comes in a reissued ’90s shoebox filled with stickers detailing the shoe’s anatomy.
Mizuno Wave Rider 1 OG will be available starting with March 31st at: Mizuno stores, Solebox, Sneakersnstuff, and other select retailers worldwide.
