    I loved running in the Mizuno Wave Inspire 14 and I don't plan to stop doing so any time soon. Very comfortable shoe for my flat foot, nicely cushioned but responsive thanks to the wave plate. Feel lighter than it is.

    The Mizuno Wave Horizon 2 is for runners seeking a high amount of stability but desire a soft, cushy ride. The construction of the sole makes you forget how heavy it feels and allows you to roll through miles with ease.

    The Mizuno Wave Paradox offers some of the highest stability and support out today. Sadly, this is its biggest shortfall.

    Same as for last year's model, I do love these shoes. They come in a category that is missing competitors and therefore very welcome. The upper fits nicely but materials could be better.

    Mizuno’s Wave Horizon is a snug-fitting stability shoe that delivers moderate cushion and control with little bulk.

    The ride is a bit stiff but overall enjoyable, and the shoe maintains its support throughout a long run. The cushioning is pleasant but has room for improvement.

    The Mizuno Wave inspire 13 is a hulking stability shoe that feels light. While it may take some time to properly break in, it is built to last longer than before.

    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.

    Love these shoes. One star had to give because of the very traditional upper in 2016. If you don't care about running sockless, these shoes are really good.

    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.
