Best extremely durable Mizuno shoes for Men

The Japanese shoe maker has been making running shoes for decades. Today, Mizuno running shoes are best known for their Wave Plate technology, an undulating plastic that has helped make the brand's shoes some of the most durable on the planet. Mizuno shoes, from their popular Wave Rider to their award winning Catalyst, are found on runners' feet across the world, many of whom have a deep allegiance to the brand.

There is nothing worse than having a shoe that falls apart after a single wear. Finding a top, durable shoe can mean the difference between getting 50 miles out of a pair... or 500. And that extra durability can save you serious money. But having a durable shoe not only means saving money: it means less injuries, a better run, and a healthier life.
