      I've tried other brands of running shoes, and other mizuno styles, but these are my favorite by far. Ive gotten the same style three times now. I also love the color selection this site offers. They have been easy to break in, and feel just as comfortable at mile 1 as they do at mile 18.

          Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Creation 15 Running Shoe:

          I run and work out a lot and I use these shoes for both - I've been using wave creations for YEARS and love them! I have lower back, knee and ankle issues and those areas love these shoes. The challenge is running they feel great, but when I'm cutting during interval training (suicides, sprints, etc.), the heal slips as if it's a bit too wide. I just have to figure out if there's a new lacing technique that I need to employ to tighten up the heal as I like wearing thin socks with them and I've been in a 10.5 forever.

            Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Creation 15 Running Shoe:

            I loved this shoe when I first got it. No break-in time, nice breathable upper, great fit, no blisters. My first test run was amazing and the shoe had a fantastic springy transition. Fast forward about 100 miles, and the shoe feels clunky. It pulls me back toward a heel strike, when I'm a strong forefoot striker. The cushion has broken down significantly, to the point where running more than 60 minutes causes foot pain. It's not a bad shoe, but the durability is really poor and it's not a marathon shoe for me. Just ... ok. I'll buy something else next time.

              This is my second pair of wave creations and I love them, they are perfect for a neutral shoe but still have great support. I'm 5'6" and weigh 125, mostly running on a paved trail at this time and average 35 to 40 miles a week . I get compliments on my cute shoes, looking forward to buying more colors. :)

                      I have tried so many name brand shoes and I have always came back to the Mizuno brand. I fell in love with the Wave Prophecy 2 years ago and I have purchased only Mizuno's since then. My Wave prophecy 2's have worn completely out and it was time to purchase a new pair. I did not want to spend $200+ dollars again for a new pair of shoes. So I searched and thought I would try these. I'm so glad I did, It fits alot like the Prochecy, but with more cushion and a better toe box. Doesn't have that curved toe feel. it's an amazing shoe and a very close 2nd to the wave prophecy. It's comfortable and I did have to order a 1/2 size up. I have found that Mizuno's run a bit small, I am normally a 9.5 but I have to order 10 in Mizuno's and it's a perfect fit all around.

                      You can't go wrong with this shoe. I have a very low arch and almost flat footed, but this shoe is amazing and would def recommend to any runner of any level. I am still a #1 Wave Prophecy 2 lover, but this shoe is just as good and a cheaper price! Thank you Mizuno for being the Best ever! I will always buy Mizuno for my everyday needs and my running needs!

                        I have been running in wave creation for about 8 years now. I have had to alter my order size sometimes when they come out with a new model. My last creation model I was a size 9, but on this one i had to go back down to the 8.5 (I wear an 8 in most regular shoes). The 9 completely swallowed my foot all around. I went ahead and ordered the 8.5 not knowing if they were going to fit, but i am HAPPY to report that they fit great and look awesome too. They are lighter than the previous model and less shoe on the fabric portion which concerned me a bit. But I have worn them several times and have not really noticed it to be a problem. Hope this helps you who are searching! Still love this shoe!

                        Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Creation 15 Running Shoe:

                        I love Mizunos and have had several pairs. I was running (15-20 mi per week) in the Wave Rider 16's but have had several running-related injuries this year so I thought these would offer more protection/injury prevention. When I first put them on, they were really comfortable and seemed almost "springy." But after running in them a few times, I just can't get past how clunky they feel. My feet seem to slap the ground and they almost force a heel-strike (I'm a mid-foot striker naturally) I will be exchanging these for the new Wave Riders. I think this is probably one of those "love 'em or hate 'em" type of shoe...just not right for me.

                        Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Creation 15 Running Shoe:

                        I have run in the Mizuno Wave Creation shoes for over 5 years and they have been great shoes for me. I am a neutral runner, but like the extra cushion because I run long distances on the road. They are flexible, light weight, & airy. But still give great support & cushion. They are very durable shoes. They run 1/2 size smaller than most running shoes. For example, I order a 1/2 size larger than I would in a Nike shoe.

                          I've been running in Wave Creations for years, I've run three half marathons and one full in them. I got sized at Road Runner and I loved them so much I keep buying them. They hug my feet and don't rub weird anywhere.
