The Mizuno Wave Creation has been one of the brand's most successful runners for over a decade, and now it's on its 15th model. Built to be lighter, faster, and more cushioned than previous iterations, the Mizuno Wave Creation 15 weighs in at 11.3 ounces and is designed for neutral pronators.

The star of the Mizuno Wave Creation 15 is its Infinity Wave Construction, which makes use of a uniquely shaped heel that pushes impact away from the foot, unlike other cushioning setups which simply disperse it throughout the midsole. The midsole area of the Mizuno Wave Creation 15 is further enhanced by the brand's U4ic (euphoric) foam, delivering lightweight forefoot cushioning that is spongy yet resilient.

Up top, the Mizuno Wave Creation 15's DMF upper, which is composed of mesh and synthetics, hugs the foot for a supportive and breathable fit. The sleek design is inspired by Ikebana, a form of Japanese flower arrangement and is sure to stand out whether you're on the track or in the streets.
