Shoe Review – Mizuno Wave Renegade 4

Mizuno Wave Renegade 4 is one of my favorite shoes for a wide foot needing serious support. The generous amounts of mesh in the upper make this shoe light weight in addition to being bunion and hammertoe friendly.

The outsole retains it’s width throughout the waist area which is also great for a wide foot, especially if you pronate excessively or have a history of posterior tibial tendonitis.

Finally, Mizuno Wave Renegade 4 has a firm heel counter which reduces pronation at heel strike promoting a more forward foot alignment.

All in all, I really like this shoe. It falls in the same class as Asics Gel-Evolution 5 and Brooks Beast. Great shoes!

  1. I am using a pair of Renegade 4’s now- coming in from multiple pairs of Beasts. I got one 10 mile run in with them, and find i can no longer stand the heel “cup”. Feels like a ridge at the front edge of heel. I removed sockliner and tried using my older Beast much-thicker sock liner and made a great difference. Am currnetly back to stock sockliner and some gel heel cups- but just walking in them is a chore.
