2006 Mizuno Lineup
With the exception of the expensive Wave Creation 6, the recent models of Mizunos tend to slant towards the "responsive ride" characteristics. Which suits runners (usually faster ones) but my preference is for cushiony ones, at least for training purposes. Hence I've found less and less compatibility with these shoes. Don't get me wrong. I've owned my fair share of Mizunos - the retired Precision, the donated Rider 6 and the still in use Maverick 3.
Well the new running season is well underway. Shoe manufacturers (for some companies, the designers) are busy coming out with new models and updates to their line of footwear. Below is the 2006 lineup for Mizuno. Note however that the US, European and Japanese market/range are different. Get detailed info from their US website. BTW the Wave Elixir seems to be the Maverick replacement.
