I decided to pick up the new Mizuno Wave Prophecy 2 a couple of weeks ago as I transitioned into some of my long runs training for the upcoming marathon season. I had been training and racing in Brooks for the past couple of years, but after losing several toe nails last year I wanted to try switching things up. I read great reviews on these Mizunos and decided to invest in a pair. Right out of the box I fell in LOVE with this shoe. I have wide feet, high arches, and am not a light weight runner, so I was looking for something that offered great cushion and support, but with a light-weight, airy feel. I put 10 miles on this pair within the first 24 hrs and can't say enough about how comfortable they are. Yesterday I ran 14 miles in them, (only the 4th time I've worn this pair) and have no blisters, no body pain what-so-ever, and can't wait to hit the road with them again tomorrow. Great shoes!

BEST RUNNING SHOE!!!
I have been running for 3.5 years now. I was going to a physical therapist for peraformis pain in my right side. He video taped my run and I was able to see how my right foot went in and this was causing the pain when running hills...etc. I have always run in Mizunos..tried others but gone back to Mizunos.. when I found these online I started wearing them and NO LONGER had ANY pain! Have been wearing the Prohecies for over a year now. This will be my third pair. I tell everyone how good they are..expensive but worth every penny! Especially if they can help conquer the running pain by getting my footing back on track! :) LOVE THEM!!! I will never run another half marathon in anything else! This year they have newer version... just basically color...wish they would come up with some better "girly" colors!
Women's wave is great
Love these shoes had several of them - I have foot injuries - tendinitis and it band issues and these help
They propel your foot forward - I think they have way more Cush than all the others styles so I don't know why they don't have a + for cushion in the line - they feel it little more narrower than previous styles
The new style is great- but I don't want these to go away will have to start stocking up as they both feel really good but are good in different ways
They feel like different shoes so I wish the new edition was a different style
They r worth the money if u want Cush or have foot / injurie problems
Great shoes!! Mizuno you got it right y
I average 30-40 miles a week and my old Mizuno Prophecy's had about 640 miles on them so I was so happy to hear they came out with a newer version. I don't notice a difference between the two models which to me is great because if something isn't broken it doesn't need to be fixed!! They give great traction and support especially on long runs. They are a bit pricey but worth every penny because they hold up so well. I can still use my old pair too if I choose too. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a durable shoe that goes the distance

From a true Wave Creation fan
I have worn Wave Creation exclusively for 5+ years and was very hesitant to try another model. I started having toenail issues with my Creations. I wear an 11 so I could not order a size bigger in them. I decided to try the Prophecies only because of the 90 day wear test run policy. I worn them on 2 regular runs and 1 long run so far and am well pleased. I intend to wear them this Saturday for a half marathon even though they are still very new and not broken in. I do not anticipate any problems.
Not as good as Prophecy1
Overall Ok shoe but cant compare to the first version, Prophecy 1. There is not as much cushioning and feels tighter all around. The prophecy 1 immediately felt amazing and were worth the extra money as they made my runs great with decreased joint pains etc. The prophecy 2 are nothing similar. I did also just get the prophecy 3 and I must say they made up for the negatives on these prophecy 2s. I would skip the 2 and immediately go for 1 or 3.
I have two different color variations of the Prophecy 1 and have worn them for intensive walking programs this year and can't say enough good things aobut them. I got the 2's and I'm not sure if I got a defective pair or that the basic design has changed because they seemed completely uncushioned. I would think they are even less cushioned than stability shoes. In addition, the collar seems to be higher and hit on the malleoli, both feet. So, unfortunately, they are going back.
Prefer the Prophecy I
Purchased these after going through 8-10 pair of the first model and I am disappointed in the changes. The fabric is stiff and does not breathe like the old mesh and they don't feel near as cushioned. Overall, just nowhere near the comfort level of the original Prophecy. I'm holding out for the next version and hopefully Mizuno will do away with the changes.
Overall a pretty good shoe
This is a gorgeous shoe and it is the second pair of Wave Prophecy that I own. I call this my "going out sneaker" mostly because I am unable to wear them on many of my runs. Mizuno's feel fine for shorter runs, but anything over 10 miles start to feel narrow and tight at the forefront of the shoe.

Mizuno Prophecy 2
I have hallux limitus (big toe arthritis.) Running became very painful and doctor said no more distance. Well, the Mizuno Prophecy saved me! I have been running pain free in the original prophecy for over a year, completing multiple half marathons. (Hope to tackle a full this fall.) I attribute the success to the stiff rocker-like toe box. Foot stays in place and there is minimal pressure on the toes. I purchased the Prophecy 2 but unfortunately something was different. I had toe pain during and after my first run. They are going back. I immediately purchased the last original version RRS had in my size.
Love the Wave Prophecy 2
I currently wear Wave Creation shoe and purchased Wave Prophecy 2 based on feedback for extra cushioning and thought it would help with the latter stages of plantar fasciitis that I've been recovering from. So far, I love these shoes and they have helped tremendously with my PF. I high recommend them!
I L O V E these shoes!!!!!!
If you're looking for a great shoe to run in, this is it! I just love how durable these shoes are! At the end of my workouts, I never complain about my feet hurting or being sore. And the colors available are cute! I get so happy to work out when I have these on my feet, LOVE IT!!!!

not as good as first version
I run about 35 miles per week on pavement and weigh about 125 pounds. I LOVE the Prophecy 1- best shoes EVER! The new 2's do not provide enough cushion in the forefoot. Mizuno 'broke' the Prophecy. I am very disappointed.
Had to exchange
a week after purchase I found they were just too loose on me, my foot slid around on the foot bed, and the store did not have a half size down for me to try so I had to exchange them for another shoe.
Best running shoes ever
These are the best running shoes I've ever had. I usually have knee and ankle pains when I run. Since I've started using these shoes I haven't had it anymore. I strongly recomend them!
