Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Review

Mizuno comes in swinging again with the Wave Inspire 13s. Like practically all of Mizuno’s running shoe lineup, it uses the wave system that promotes a long life of the shoe with superior cushioning. The idea for the wave system came from Mizuno’s developers wanting their shoes to mimic how a wave is. Energy concentrated […]

Mizuno Wave Horizon Review

This very first dawn of Horizon breaks into Mizuno’s line to fit somewhere between the lightly sportive Wave Inspire and Wave Paradox‘s premium stability. The shoe delivers on providing moderate stability and reminds me a lot of ASICS’ Gel-Kayano and GT-2000. Wave-Horizon’s drop height is 12mm which to me feels like the Kayano women’s 13mm […]

Mizuno Wave Diachi 2 Review

I was pretty excited to try these trail shoes as I have heard good things about Mizuno products and had been eyeing a pair of the company’s road shoes. But after more than 50 miles of running cross-country courses and mild to moderate trails, I have lost my enthusiasm and relegated the Wave Daichis to […]

Mizuno Wave Sky Review

The Mizuno Wave Sky is a brand new shoe made to take the place of the Wave Enigma. This shoe represents the highest level of cushion Mizuno offers that is mostly foam based. If you want a higher level of cushion from the brand, you’ll have to move to the models with more Wave technology […]

Mizuno Wave Enigma 6 Review

The Wave Enigma 6 is advertised a highly cushioned, neutral trainer, designed for high mileage. This version carries over many of features from the previous version with just a few minor updates. The shoe has been given only a few adjustments. Mizuno updated the upper with a new semi-stretch material that keeps runners locked in […]

Mizuno Wave Enigma 4 Review

Mizuno Wave Enigma 4 General Info: The Mizuno Wave Enigma 4 is a continuation of the Wave Enigma series. I had never worn Mizunos of any kind before, but was excited to try these out, not only just to try a new shoe, but I had seen this series favorably compared to the Asics Nimbus […]

Mizuno Wave Hitogami 3 Review

The Wave Hitogami is the second level of Mizuno’s low-stack trainer options — behind the immensely popular Sayonara line — and presents a very manageable price point for such an offering. Throughout the wearing of this shoe, I found it to hit the mark on almost every test I put it through. Continually I looked […]
