Mizuno Wave creation 18 Review:


Cushioning and sturdiness are ensured with the MIZUNO WAVE CREATION 18 gray and black running shoe for heavy riders. Thanks to its integral Wave plate, it ensures an optimal support and support for the races of all distances, preferably on road and stable paths.

The upper offers a comfortable fit with a mesh that adapts to the foot movements thanks to DynamotionFit technology. The foot is thus held without being compressed and the shape of the fitting makes it possible to hold the heel well while leaving a little space at the level of the toes. Finally, virtually devoid of sewing, the risks of irritation and friction are reduced to increase comfort.
