Alchemy is the perfect name for this shoe as it has the ability to convert my problematic foot strike
into road running gold. The Wave Alchemy 10 does a fine job dispelling the notion that “control” shoes
are only for heavier or slower runners. I’m a relatively light amateur runner at 6’ tall and 170
pounds but I have always required a solid feeling training shoe under my arches. The Wave Alchemy 10
provides a good combination of arch support and transition. In other words, this is a shoe that doesn’t
feel slow or particularly heavy while doing a fine job of supporting my flexible arches.
I ran in the Wave Alchemy 9 for a short period and I can say that, for me, the Wave Alchemy 10 is
improved in at least one aspect. The prior Dynamotion fit design in the Alchemy 9 caused some rubbing on
the lateral aspect of my ankle and this has, thankfully, been addressed in the Wave Alchemy 10. The new
Dynamotion fit collar tab did not cause any irritation to my ankle. The Wave Alchemy 10 upper is light,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych],
breathable and, like other [link widoczny dla zalogowanych], after a few runs it really conforms to the foot.
As stated before, Mizuno boosted the forefoot cushioning for the Wave Alchemy 10 and here’s where I’m
probably different from everyone else. I actually prefer the thinner and more flexible forefoot of the
Wave Alchemy 9. With the Wave Renegade being phased out I do understand why Mizuno decided to make this
shoe more plush feeling in the forefoot but I honestly prefer a little more firmness on the front end of
my shoes. The Wave Alchemy 10 ride is somewhere between the Wave Inspire and the Wave Nirvana. I
actually find the Wave Alchemy to be less controlling than the Wave Nirvana.
The Mizuno Wave Alchemy 10 defies convention and blurs the lines between stability and control footwear.
If you like the Mizuno Wave Inspire but feel like it’s not quite enough shoe for your long runs, be
advised and take the Wave Alchemy 10 for a ride.
