The Wave Paradox is an entirely new model from Mizuno that will slot into the maximum pronation support category. That’s right, the Alchemy has been scrapped after 12 years of service in favor of a fresh design that relaunches Mizuno in this popular category that includes models such as the Asics Gel Kayano, Saucony Hurricane, and Brooks Trance (which becomes the Transcend in February 2014).
Among the differentiators for the Paradox will be its weight – just 10.6 oz for a Men’s 9 and 8.6 oz for a Women’s 8 according to Mizuno. The low weight in conjunction with substantial pronation support is exactly the paradox that gives the shoe its name.
