- The Mizuno Wave Inspire 15 features several updates to satisfy runners who need moderate support and dynamic cushioning. The shoe has been modified from top to bottom. One significant update is the new jacquard mesh in the upper of the Inspire 15. The mesh offers a breathable foot coverage while delivering durability and support.
- The interior of the shoe also features several enhancements. The shoe has a U4icX heel wedge for a smoother landing and a new U4icX Strobel Board for an increased comfort.
- Lastly, the outsole has deeper flex grooves for enhanced flexibility. It encourages efficient toe-off.
The Wave Inspire 15 has a standard running shoe length. The upper mesh is stretchable enough to follow the natural shape of the foot. The width options for the women’s version are B – Medium, and D – Wide. For the men’s Inspire 15, the width choices are D – Medium and 2E – Wide.
The 15th version of the Wave Inspire is still using the durable X10 outsole material. It is a high-abrasion carbon rubber strategically placed in the outer sole for durability. It also offers a good amount of traction on varied road surfaces. This durable outsole material is also used in some popular Mizuno running shoes, like the Wave Rider 22.
The Wave Inspire 15 features much deeper flex grooves which are designed to enhanced flexibility without affecting underfoot protection. It allows the foot to move efficiently to multiple directions for an enhanced heel to toe transition.
In the midsole of the Wave Inspire 15 is the Cloudwave fan-shaped Mizuno Wave Technology. It aims to provide efficient impact protection and a more stable ride. The Wave plate is also designed to deliver a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
Working together with the Wave plate is the U4icX heel wedge. This midsole technology offers responsive cushioning while delivering a plush landing under the foot. The shoe also features the new U4icX Strobel board for an increased in-step comfort.
The SmoothRide technology is still present in the latest version of the Mizuno Wave Inspire. This midsole technology is designed to create a smooth ride by regulating the movement of the foot during a rapid acceleration and deceleration.
The Mizuno Wave Inspire 15 features a redesigned upper for a modern touch and enhanced fit. It uses a jacquard mesh upper that delivers unmatched breathability and comfort. This upper material is durable and flexible enough to accommodate the natural curve of the foot.
The Mizuno Dynamotion Fit aims to mirror the movement of the foot while running. As the foot bends, stretches and twists, the Dyanmotion Fit mimicks toot’s movement. It wraps the foot comfortably while delivering a more secure foot wrap.
The shoe uses a traditional lace-up closure. It secures the foot comfortably without giving too much pressure.
The padded tongue and collar further enhance the overall fit and comfort of the shoe.
