Combined with the soles of some of our most popular performance shoes, you are in for a whole new running experience. Be the first to join the new wave in running.


  • wave knit stretch
    GREAT FIT AND BREATHABILITY
    The WaveKnit upper has an incredible sock-like fit, providing a great combination of stretch and support. Furthermore, thanks to the knit construction at the forefoot, the upper boasts a high degree of breathability as well.
  • wave knit hold fit
    DYNAMIC HOLD AND FIT
    While the upper is constructed without any reinforcements, the wave pattern works as hold areas compensating for the stretchability in other areas of the knit, making a natural and dynamic fit possible.

    KNIT MATERIAL
    The knit fabric provides a natural and dynamic fit through its unique stretch and hold abilities, while also maintaining a great degree of breathability.
