Mizuno Wave Goodbye £50

Weight 248g
Evaluation The Wave Goodbye is the slightly faster twin of the more expensive Wave Phantom. While it weighs virtually the same, it’s firmer and more responsive, and it has less midfoot support, which makes for a more natural, if less stable ride. If you have any problems with a heavy or slightly unstable footstrike, the better-cushioned, more stable Phantom is your better bet, but the Wave Goodbye is a great no-frills option. Mizuno has added more support in the upper over last year’s version, and says the shoe is built on a new last, but our weartesters noticed little difference.
