    The Wave Prophecy 4 is the pinnacle of Mizuno Wave plate engineering. The shoe brings the hallmark Mizuno firm ride to another level that nearly pushes the Wave Prophecy 4 from the neutral category into stability.

    The Mizuno Wave Creation 16 may work for some heavier runners, but runners under 175 lbs are not going to feel any energy return due to the stiffness of the wave platform.

    The Mizuno wave Kazan is a comfortable durable trail shoe that works very well on dry non technical terrain. It does however fall short when exposed to rocky technical terrain and in wet conditions. It does not achieve its goal of being a versatile all terrain trail shoe

Mizuno fans will love the stream-lined design paired with the brand’s typical Wave technology. However, newcomers to the company’s line may have trouble adjusting their gait to
