Inspired by water's ability to absorb impact, the mad scientists at Mizuno set out to design a more comfortable running shoe capable of reducing foot fatigue when running long distances the end product is the Women's Wave Creation 17 Running Shoe. The Infinity Wave heel redirects impact away from your foot, reducing fatigue. The compact design combined with the lightweight U4ic midsole eliminates weight, giving the shoes a barely there feel. Smoothride engineering helps the shoes roll smoothly from heel to toe, resulting in increased stride efficiency and more power at toe off. A durable carbon rubber sole and a 12mm drop make these shoes ideal for long distance training.
