    The Wave Paradox is a good stability shoe. I do, however, have some issues with it. For instance, the lateral heel of this shoe is still pretty beefy and does not lay down like the Nirvana or Alchemy did

    The Mizuno Wave Prophecy 5 is a high-mileage trainer that advertises high cushion. It is very pricey, and although the fit was superb, it did not deliver on the cushioning that was expected

    Mizuno pares down some aspects of the Wave Inspire 12 and beefs up other areas. This could be a divisive shoe for fans of the last few Inspires. It’s heavy and hot but it is incredibly stable and cushioned. Overall, a success provided the extra weight isn’t a deal breaker for you

    The Mizuno Wave Paradox 2 is a greatly improved shoe from the previous version. The upper is infinitely more welcoming to run in. The stability is improved as is the cushioning. The arch and heel are more robust this year and I’m at a loss to explain why.
