    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Creation 15 Running Shoe:

    Unfortunately, I will not be wearing Mizuno running shoes anymore. I wore the Waverider for years, until Mizuno, in their quest for lightness, went to far. I have been a competitive distant runner for 40 years and have worn all the major brands at different times. The Wave Creation, I thought, was suppose to be the next in line for cushioning shoe after the Waverider. Not to be. This shoe should not be touted for it's cushioning properties and went to Adidas Ultra boost, which is heaven on your feet.

      Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Creation 15 Running Shoe:

      I was looking for good cushioning while I build mileage back up to where I can handle half marathons. I was having issues with heel striking (when walking) that causes me to add heel cups into these for my runs. This solution is working excellent as the cushioning is very good and I've been able to complete my runs (6-9 miles) without heal or forefoot pain. I'm 6'2" about 270, so this is a hearty shoe that I'm liking quite a bit. Just bought a second pair last week.

          Tried this shoe after too many Asics (usually the Kayano series) just wore out too quickly. Really like this shoe and holds up quite a bit better than the latest or last years Kayano. Doesn't stretch out laterly and really hugs the road.

                    I am training for my first marathon. Running up to a 40 miles a week. I tried the wave rider and it is good too but the wave creation seems to have more bounce and cushion. Feels fast. Fits great. No blisters on 20 mile runs. The only negative is the shoe laces are too long but not a big deal. Just put several hundred miles on these and now trying the wave prophecy 3 tomorrow. Highly recommend the wave creation 15.

                      Great shoe, for running only. I feel the shoe is designed to run at all speeds, I think casual use will destroy the construction. I love them, but I only use them to run.

                      Great shoe that feels cushy. It looks good but some fool put a black tongue in it which looks silly. I always wear a 11.5 but the add said to order a half size larger. I did and it may be too big. I'm thinking about sending it back.

                        I'm a big fan of Mizuno shoes. I need a shoe that has substantial cushioning but doesn't impede movement. Mizuno has simply outdone themselves with the Wave Creation 15. I knew from the moment I first put them on that these are great shoes. They immediately felt comfortable and there was no period of being broken in. The Wave Creation 15 is lightweight but the cushioning means that there is no jarring on impact. They allow my feet to relax and grip the road naturally. Congratulations go to Mizuno for improving their Wave Creation line of shoes. They keep making them better and better.

                        I run 30+ miles a week. Training for my first marathon. I bought these after purchasing wave riders. I like both. The wave creation offers more cushion and spring. The tongue on the right shoe bunches up a little bit and has caused some soreness on the top of my foot when I run more than 12 miles. It seems better after 4 or 5 runs. The laces are too long but easy enough to replace. Overall great shoe after 100 miles.

                            I bought mine in first week in Jan. I have been using the creation model for these. The 15 seems to be more comfortable than the 14. Specifically, the heel cup does not feel as stiff as the 14 -- seems to be a little bit softer and roomy all around -- seems to be a tad wider and a better fit. Cushioning is very good. Be sure to order 1/2 size up, as stated in ordering info. Strangeness -- I bought the slate and black colored one, and could not find the "Creation" logo anywhere. Turns out, it's printed in yellow on the white piece of material that holds in the top of the shoelaces. It is unreadable, because of the color scheme. This is a good shoe, but will really lighten your wallet.

                              Mizuno you have done it again! Great update on one of the best running shoes. It feels like the design keeps shaving weight without compromising performance or stability.

                                Special ordered these as they were not available in store. I have 3 pairs of the 1'sh which I love! I find the 15 less - structured, and more slipper-like! Don't know if that's an improvement? Laces very long.

                                  I run on a combination of outdoor and in due to my schedule an this shoe feels great on both. It feels really stable for my stride. I added the custom inserts to improve the shoe and was very glad that I did. My knees and ankles generally feel good after runs of about 4 miles to 4.5 miles.
