Wave Rider 27 Amsterdam

Everyone knows Vermeers Straatje and Melkmeisje. Now there is also Vermeer's running shoe. The official shoe of the 2023 TCS Amsterdam Marathon created by Mizuno in collaboration with the Rijksmuseum. As a tribute to the most successful exhibition in Rijksmuseum history.

Iconic running shoe by Vermeer

2023 is the Year of Johannes Vermeer, the artist famous for his stillness, light and extraordinary colours. That is why Mizuno and the Rijksmuseum have together chosen the Milkmaid as the inspiration for the new running shoe Wave Rider 27 Amsterdam. The shoe is executed in the distinctive colours of one of Vermeer's most famous works. Not only do the blue and yellow pantone pigments refer to the painting, the inside of the shoe also incorporates details of the iconic work.

Mizuno Wave Rider 27 Amsterdam
The 27th edition of the Wave Rider is an excellent update of Mizuno's popular all-round running shoe. It is lighter in weight and the updated upper is made of 90% recycled material. The running shoe known for its excellent value for money is ideal for your daily run and suitable for both endurance running and fast interval training.
Technical information
The Wave Rider has a MIZUNO ENERZY midsole that allows you as a runner to experience extra cushioning and energy return. The use of MIZUNO ENERZY gives you enhanced agility and stability, which is combined with resilient propulsion. On the paved road, the shoe has a smooth stride while in the woods you will experience a lot of stability.

Between the two layers of MIZUNO ENERZY lies the plastic Wave Plate in the shape of a wave. This Bio Pebax Wave Plate provides support and is made with Castor oil for a more eco-friendly footprint. The lateral and medial sidewalls of the shoe are raised and the area around the midfoot shank is reinforced.

The Wave Rider 27 fits seamlessly thanks to the technical Jacquard mesh and 3D PU print for a strategic fit and grip around the foot. The material is soft, pliable and highly breathable. The heel cap has also been updated, as has the Gusset tongue construction that ensures an optimal fit around the midfoot. Thanks to X10 carbon rubber in the outside of the heel, the shoe is more resistant to abrasion, especially from heel landers.
