    The Enigma is designed to be a generously cushioned high mileage trainer. The shoe is very durable and can take a lot of abuse and miles, but fails to deliver the cushioning that is expected

    The Mizuno Wave Creation 18 is a high mileage trainer that will take a pounding. However, it performs poorly on long runs

    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 Sayonara 4 is a lightweight racer/trainer that feels fast. It has cushioning for the long runs but maintains a firm base for speed

    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

    The Mizuno Wave Catalyst tries to fill the gap left by the demise of the Wave Elixir in 2014. Lightweight stability - don't we all want that?

    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 Wave Hayate 2 provides a firm, responsive ride. Its lightweight frame makes it a good option for runners looking for a fast racing shoe for the trails.
