    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

    The Mizuno Wave Catalyst 2 is a fast and responsive everyday trainer or racing day shoe for runners who need a touch of extra stability

    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

    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 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.
