The Mizuno Wave Creation offers a unique take on the premium neutral trainer. The Infinity Wave plate in the heel, a hallmark of this model, is designed to provide ultimate cushioning without completely disconnecting you from the ground underfoot. The more traditional midsole in the forefoot provides added bounce for toe-off.
The Wave Creation 15 will be an evolution, not revolution, in this cushioning story. While the shoe is completely new, it should retain the key characteristics that have made it a top seller in the premium cushioning category.
What to Watch For
• Lighter Weight: According to Mizuno, the Men’s Creation 15 should clock in at 11.3 oz, with Women’s at 9.2 oz. That’s about half an ounce lighter than the current model.
• Redesigned Wave: The fully redesigned Infinity Wave plate is tuned to strike a balance between cushioning and responsiveness.
• Updated Midsole: Like almost all of Mizuno’s lineup, the Wave Creation 15 switches from AP+ to U4iC midsole compound.
• Fresh Upper: The print on the upper evokes the Japanese shibori cloth-dyeing technique, which is similar to tie-dyeing. So you can feel just a little more artsy on your next run in the Creation 15.
