 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Mizuno Wave Alchemy 12

 


RELEASE DATE:

  •   July 2012

 

For a supportive ride that won't weigh you down, the Mizuno Wave Alchemy 12 is here for you. A wave plate in the midsole works hard to correct over pronation without being bulky or heavy. The heel-to-toe ride is smooth and seamless, and the midsole gives a close feel for the ground, to keep you connected to the roads you love.

The Alchemy 12 is a moderate feature, maximum support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

How can a shoe be so supportive, yet incredibly lightweight? With a flat mid-sole and a wider base, the Mizuno Wave Alchemy 12 running shoe delivers a smooth run without compromising support. AIR Mesh™ upper with Dynamotion Fit™ provides the utmost in breathability and comfort.

AP midsole adds lightweight, responsive, yet durable cushioning. SmoothRide™ engineered, Composite Double-Fan Wave™ provides the perfect blend of control and cushioning while offering an unsurpassed ride. VS-T™ shock absorbing cushioning compound in the heel.

Mizuno Intercool™ full-length midsole ventilation system reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe. X10™ carbon rubber in the heel allows for longer wear in high impact areas and supplements traction at heel strike. SmoothRide™ engineered combination solid rubber/blown rubber forefoot outsole design for cushioning, flexibility and durability.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.  I used them for long runs which the shoe felt solid,  sturdy and my feet felt cushioned.
