Don't change a good thing. (I'm glad to report they didn't),
This review is from: Mizuno Men's Wave Rider 16 Running Shoe (Shoes)
I love my Mizuno Wave Rider 15s and was a little worried that they would change something for the worse, with the redesign. I'm happy to report that they didn't change a thing, except for the styling (and possibly shaved a little weight). The fit, feel, comfort, and ride of these shoes is exactly as great as they were before. Whether you are new to the Mizuno Wave Rider's or have been running them for years, these won't disappointed you. They are great. I run between 4 and 8 miles in them every day (alternating shoes each day), and I absolutely love them. I also have a pair of the far more expensive Mizuno Prophets, and find the Wave Rider's to be far more comfortable, especially over longer differences.
On their website, Mizuno reports that they shaved half an ounce off of these. I don't doubt them, but personally can't feel the difference.
