 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Mizuno Wave Creation 14

 

RELEASE DATE:

  •   November 2012

 

The Mizuno Wave Creation 14 running shoe features more support, extra cushioning, and a higher level of durability.   This shoe is engineered for the neutral-to-under-pronator looking for cushioning and impact protection.    The AIR Mesh™ upper and the Intercool™ full-length midsole ventilation system helps reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe.

The Dynamotion Fit™ allows for unparalleled fit while in motion.   The SmoothRide™ offers superior shock absorption and dispersion.   In addition, the Gender Engineering creates running shoes that more closely fit the different running styles of the male and female runner, in return maximizing performance.

Mizuno Wave™ is the continuation of the Infinity Wave™ into the forefoot.   Its wave pattern attenuates impact energy. AP+ midsole improves the quality of the running experience by offering increased rebound and a "bouncier" feeling.   The Solid rubber forefoot and X-10™ high-density carbon rubber heel offers durability and flexibility.

The Men's Mizuno Wave Creation 14 Running Shoes create a smooth, comfortable gait for neutral runners.

Designed for comfort, they feature a responsive, springy wave plate that disperses shock, reducing the impact on your body and returning energy to your legs.   It is a bit lighter than the 13 version and with a refined heel strike, the Wave Creation 14 is loaded with thoughtful features and innovative technologies that make every run more comfortable.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.
