Neutral. With an improved feel at heel strike, the Wave® Creation™ 13 maintains the phenomenal fit of its predecessors thanks to an updated Infinity Wave construction.
Upper: AIRMesh™ with synthetic overlays for support provides the utmost in breathability and comfort of the upper. Dynamotion Fit™ relieves the stress the foot naturally places on footwear and eliminates distortion in the collar and heel during the gait cycle that results in heel slippage and a poor fit. The goal of DynaMotion Fit™ is to create perfect harmony between your body and your running shoes. DynaMotion Fit ™ in the Creation 13 also includes two way stretch in the forefoot to compensate for stretching of the foot during toe off as well as the ability to hold key areas in place, keeping the foot centered on the midsole.
Midsole: Mizuno's revolutionary Infinity Wave™ provides the ultimate in cushioning, rebound and durability by reducing the shoes reliance on midsole foam. Sensor Point™ suspension system connects the Wave plate to the ground, thereby enhancing stability and traction. AP+ midsole enhances the inherent properties of AP Midsole. AP+ improves the quality of the running experience by offering increased rebound and a "bouncier" feeling which extends the cushioning durability, while maintaining the lightweight performance you've come to expect from Mizuno. Mizuno Intercool full-length midsole ventilation system reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe. SmoothRide™ Engineering minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible. A removable Ortholite® sockliner provides a responsive first feel.
25mm heel height, 13mm forefoot height.
Outsole: X-10™ featured in this shoe is the most durable carbon rubber that allows for longer wear in high impact areas and supplements traction at heel strike. SmoothRide Engineered, a solid rubber forefoot outsole design for durability and flexibility.

Women’s Running Magazine Best Neutral Award
"The perfect neutral running shoe is all about finding the sweet spot between cushion and support. Nearly every tester reported that the Wave Creation boasts the ideal balance of a pillowy feel and a solid foundation. ‘It’s a great combination,’ noted one Florida-based runner. Improvements from the Creation 12, including a lighter weight and additional cushioning in the heel, make the 13’s a great go-to trainer for runners looking for structure without pronation protection."
The Wave® Creation™ 13 addresses the fundamental differences between the way men and women run. Through extensive research, Mizuno has learned that creating shoes that fit closer to these specific running styles, performance is maximized.
Women have a wider pelvis than men causing them to pronate more when their feet land. Additionally, less muscle mass and softer connective tissue in women increases the speed at which the ankle rolls inward. By making their shoes more flexible with more pronounced flex grooves and the outside heel more rounded, Mizuno produced a softer landing, slowing the inward roll of the ankle, producing a more desired result for female runners.
