Atlanta’s AJC Peachtree Road Race turns 50 on the Fourth of July, and to celebrate, Mizuno has a performance running shoe dedicated to the upcoming event.
For the annual 10K’s milestone, Mizuno released a limited-edition Rider Waveknit sneaker, which boasts a 50th golden peach logo on each heel and tongue. To celebrate the holiday, the brand executed the look with a red, white and blue color palette. Mizuno also designed the right shoe to have a different look than that of the left, but still complement each other.
The Rider Waveknit is a tech-loaded shoe for the running diehard, a custom shoe with features that resemble Mizuno’s acclaimed Wave Rider inline model. The shoe is equipped with Mizuno’s latest upper innovation, Waveknit, designed to provide a natural and dynamic fit. It also boasts the brand’s SmoothRide midsole, which pairs its U4icX and U4ic cushioning compounds to keep the feel plush and responsive.
