Whether you are a neutral runner, or in need of some support on a run – Mizuno have a shoe to suit. Here’s a look at what’s on offer for two lucky entrants.

Mizuno Wave Ultima 10

Designed for medium to long-distance runners looking for a comfortable, cushioned shoe Mizuno's Wave Ultima 10 is versatile and suitable for all kinds of neutral runners. This is an update of an already popular shoe, and every improvement has been made with comfort and performance in mind. From a U4icX heel wedge and Mizuno’s Wave Technology cushioning, to a dual compound midsole and blown rubber forefoot for the softest toe-off, this shoe really does offer stress-free running. Even the upper is made from fewer parts for a lighter, more seamless construction, while a premium PU sockliner provides a comfortable fit from the word go.

Mizuno Wave Rider 22

Mizuno’s Wave Rider 22 is a shoe that delivers in every sense - it is the brand’s most popular trainer with neutral runners for a reason! And with this being its 22nd incarnation – it has pedigree. This edition features a dual compound midsole constructed from U4ic and U4icX combined with Mizuno’s latest Wave technology which delivers unmatched cushioning and a responsive ride. New for 2018 is a light and breathable mesh upper with DynamotionFit construction that ensures durability and a snug fit, while a perforated midsole under the heel delivers an even softer landing.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 14

The Inspire has just been given a serious upgrade. Upgraded, and anatomically engineered using Mizuno's new fan-shaped wave technology, the Wave Inspire 14 can now offer that soft, dynamic cushioning and responsive ‘Wave Feel’, while also providing the necessary stability. This shoe is fast and fun to run in. The update also includes a softer upper mesh and a redesigned arch wrap, set back slightly to better lock the arch and heel in place.

Mizuno Wave Equate 2

This redesigned all-rounder brings you maximum stability and comfort for everyday runs. The Wave Equate 2 features Mizuno’s new upper design for enhanced support and fit, and Double Fan-shaped Wave technology giving you a smooth, comfortable run. There is also a new upper design to provide additional support and fit on the medial side. The fan-shaped Wave in the heel provides  stability and support on all your runs.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is answer the following question. Clue: you'll find the answer on the Mizuno website!
