The women's Mizuno® Wave® Creation® 12 running shoe now also features better flex grooves that deliver a more natural feel. 10.5 ounces
Ive worn Mizuno Wave Creation 11 shoes in the past and I loved them. The Wave Creation 12 I believe are even better. They have better flex and more cushioning in the front. They are very light weight and the best part is that they have an extremely high arch support which I love. I have very bad Plantar fasciitis and after running in these shoes I noticed my pain has completely diminished. I am a true believer in these shoes. I run approx 25-30miles a week on pavement / or treadmill. I love these shoes so much that I bought 2 pairs, one in the lavendar/white and found a black/charcoal/lime green color on another website.
Love my new shoes
I needed a new pair of running shoes for working out and for casual wear. These shoes felt perfect the minute I put them on! I did not have to "wear" them in. They are so comfortable and stable. I feel better in them than any other shoe. They give me balance and an actual feeling of a "push". I just love them and they make me want to work out more and stay active. I haven't felt this way about another pair except the previous version of this pair in another color.
Great Training Shoe
I've been wearing Wave Creation for the past 2 years and got a really good deal on the new 12's. This is a great cushioning shoe for someone who has a very bad knee. My only dislike is the elastic strap that holds the tongue in place can sometimes rub the wrong way on the instep of my foot. I wear these to train in - and log somewhere between 15 - 20 miles a week. Too comfortable to move to a different shoe.
Go to running shoe
Wave Creation from Mizuno have been my go-to running shoe for years, and the updated v12 shoe did not disappoint. Great, comfortable shoe perfect for long or short runs. Unlike other shoes that I've had that stretch out over time, the Mizuno Wave Creations continue to "hug" my feet mile after mile. My feet are on the narrow side so this is a must.
Great running shoe!
I tried another brand but should have known better... I have been wearing the Mizuno Wave Creations since #7. They always work well for me. I have a high arch, wide width foot and typically use the shoes for treadmill long-distance running.

are they narrower?
These feel slightly different when you put them on and they look more narrow to me. But, when I ran they felt like the same great shoes I have been wearing for years.
I run 20-25 miles per week year round. These shoes are my 3rd pari of Mizunos and I love them. They are comfortable from the 1st step and offer great support. I recently tried Nike and came back to Mizuno.
Great, Lightweight Trainer
Great road shoe for a neutral runner who needs arch support, but no "corrective" features affecting landing or stride.
improved on the 11
I loved the mizuno creation 11 but the flexibility of the forefoot gave me a chronic blister on my right big toe due to my gait. This update is slightly more stable and I have not had that problem - meaning it's a likely candidate for marathon shoe! After a year of terrible shoe problems when my dream shoe, the saucony triumph 5 was phased out, it's a relief to finally find something that works. I run about 30 mi/week and am alternating this with the heavier asics nimbus. I did notice that oddly, I'm wearing a half size smaller in this than in the 11s.
Wave Creation not my favorite Mizuno
I was so excited to get these shoes. Previously have worn the Wave Rider and LOVED them, but wanted a Neutral+ shoe since I am training for my first full marathon and putting in more mileage. I thought the cushioning would be excellent and the arches very supportive, and probably would have been except I kept feeling like there was a ridge going across my arch right at the connection point. I tried to get over it, as I was happy with every other aspect, but I will be exchanging these for the Wave Enigma.

Perfect out of the box
Use for road and trail running in -20F to +80F. Duct tape covering mesh keeps feet comfortable at -20F. Ice cleats attach with ease. Comfortable as is from 30F to 80F. Size up 1/2 size. Perfect with custom orthotics. Cushioning works for tender knees, but the shoe is still light and feels nimble. This is my second pair. PT recommended brand and style. Only con is the open heel that tends to fill with ice, snow, gravel, and rattles as I run and leaves a mess in the mudroom.
Awesome shoe for bad feet
I have two pairs, one for gym workouts and one for outside workouts. They are awesome shoes.
Best running shoes I have ever owned!
I have a Morton's Neuroma in one of my feet, and need shoes that will provide comfort, as well as not aggravate the problem. I have tried several different shoes to find one that works. These are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever worn...they really do feel like they were made just for me!
Ran the Runner
Great shoe for any runner
I weight train and do cardio with this shoe 5 days a week. It's the perfect balance of support and comfort. I have both ankles reconstructed and this shoe provides good lateral support. It's light weight and provides good shock absorption.
These shoes are great! They are comfy and responsive! I'm still deciding if I'm taking them or the precision with me to my marathon. A neutral category shoes work better for me than those recommended stability shoes. No pain anywhere.
Running and running and running.
Love this shoe except for the shoe box being a tad too large excellent fit. Running every day with great heel support. 6th year in a row buying this shoe and still loving the fit.
I run and just adore these shoes! "Beautiful" is what I said when I first put them on! I can feel why they are called the wave.
Provides good stability for heel.
Best shoe ever !
For my average type of running 50 - 70 km a week this is the best shoe I ever have used. It´s my 4th Wave Creation and will not be the last ...
