Mizuno’s Tribute Shoe for the 50th AJC Peachtree Road Race Gets a Fourth of July Palette

Atlanta’s AJC Peachtree Road Race turns 50 on the Fourth of July, and to celebrate, Mizuno has a performance running shoe dedicated to the event.

For the annual 10K’s milestone, Mizuno released a limited-edition Rider Waveknit sneaker that boasts a 50th golden peach logo on each heel and tongue. To celebrate the holiday, the brand executed the look with a red, white and blue color palette. Mizuno also designed the right shoe to have a different look than that of the left but still complement each other.

The Rider Waveknit is a custom tech-loaded shoe for the running diehard, with features that resemble Mizuno’s acclaimed Wave Rider inline model. The shoe is equipped with Mizuno’s latest upper innovation, Waveknit, designed to provide a natural and dynamic fit. It also boasts the brand’s SmoothRide midsole, which pairs its U4icX and U4ic cushioning compounds to keep the feel plush and responsive.

We are very proud to be a partner and help spread our love for running.”

The Mizuno Peachtree 50th Rider Waveknit is available now via Store.atlantatrackclub.org in men’s and women’s sizing for $130.
