Give Them a Whirl!!!!!!!!,
This review is from: Mizuno Men's Wave Creation 12 Running Shoe (Apparel)
Before I got these shoes I was running in Mizuno wave elixir 5's but they just didn't have enough cushion for long runs. The Wave Creations provide all that cushioning and more, in a unique way.
Instead of using a soft insole the creators gave the outsole the ability to compress with the two wave plates. This makes for a smooth ride without feeling like you are sinking into the insole of the shoe. I really love how these shoes have worked so far. But they are a little heavy, weighing about 13oz. The upper is really nice. And the outsole has good traction. The shoe also fits my foot like a glove, giving an almost shoeless feel (except for the weight). Also I have found that running on pavement feels better then running on trails (which really shocked me).
The only downsides to these shoes are the weight and the price. I would really suggest trying these shoes if you are looking for something with really good cushioning and a smooth ride. But before making the purchase I would suggest going to a store and trying them out since they have such a different feel to them.
Some people say these shoes don't break in well and don't fit true to size. And for them that may be true. But as for me I am ready for the next time I can go out and give my pair a whirl.
