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 Catalyst 2 Review

One year after the introduction of the first Wave Catalyst, Mizuno comes with this second version. I found out that the original Catalyst did not sell particularly well at retail, and that possibly explains the huge price reductions I have seen online on this shoe. You should take advantage of it, because it is a […]

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 Shadow Review

These Wave Shadow shoes are designed to be top quality daily trainers with lightweight+durable construction. They come in at 9oz in men’s size 9 (data taken before product official launch so check the sidebar to get the right info) and have an 8mm heel to toe drop. Other shoes in the same lightweight daily trainer […]

Mizuno Wave Inspire 8 Running Shoes Review

Mizuno Wave Inspire 8 First Impression: Great anticipation has been building for the Wave Inspire 8. Many loyal Inspire runners were taken aback by the sweeping changes made to the Inspire 7. Unfold the tissue paper in the box and you’ll see what looks like a Wave Inspire 6 but you’ll find a new but […]

Mizuno Wave Rider 15 Running Shoes Review

High mileage runners and weekend warriors alike have gravitated towards the Mizuno Wave Rider as a lightweight but durable shoe with a smooth ride.  The Wave Rider 13 was widely considered the benchmark of perfection in the Mizuno neutral cushioning line and many runners have high expectations for the Wave Rider 15.  The Wave Rider […]

Mizuno Wave Elixir 7 Running Shoes Review

Mizuno Wave Elixir 7 First Impressions: In my recent Wave Nirvana 8 and Wave Inspire 8 reviews my biggest gripe was the look of the shoes. It’s a small thing to complain about, I know. Mizuno may be a bit conservative when it comes to the standard colors for the Inspire and Nirvana series but […]

Mizuno Wave Alchemy 12

Mizuno Wave Alchemy 12 first impressions: With the demise of the Wave Renegade a couple of years ago, the Wave Alchemy series has since served as the lone carrier of the motion control battle flag for Mizuno. I reviewed the Wave Alchemy 10 and 11 and was pleased with both editions. Naturally, I was excited […]
