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 are durable shoes and then there are extremely durable shoes. Extremely durable shoes can withstand pavement pounding and trail climbing. They're shoes that go past the traditional 300 mile replacement mark and allow you to get up to 600 miles. And while we wouldn't recommend giving them as heirlooms to your children, extremely durable shoes truly can withstand the test of time.
