I have the Wave Rider. I use it for speedwork and racing. The shoe is a nice
middle-ground between the typical lightweight trainer (Mizuno Wave Precision,
Nike Spiridon, Asics Verdict/DS Trainer) and the "normal" cushioned shoes.

Alchemy is a stability shoe, rider is a cushioning shoe. Go with whichever
suits your arch/pronation type better.

I switched from Creations to the Rider, and I like the Rider better. Don't
know exactly why. It's also cheaper and lighter. I was afraid of the
lighter shoe, but I've run several 10+ mile runs without problems. However,
I'm not heavy (160lbs). I'm hooked on Mizunos. I credit the arch support
with helping to cure a two-year bout with plantar fasciitis.

So how do these models fare on your cute little treadmill jogs Donovan?

I stumbled/jogged/drank my way through the Medoc marathon in a pair of
these. I like them a lot tho' I don't think they're quite cushioned enough
for me on runs of over 20 miles/over 4? hours. That being said, I was able
to walk the streets of Bordeaux all next day, and had no soreness or
discomfort anywhere. So the Rider gets my vote (and I'll be buying another
pair come spring)

As I said in the other post, I use them for racing and speed work. I do neither
of these on the treadmill. However, I think they'd be fine for treadmill
running.

Two completely different shoes. The Rider is a lower midsole,
lightweight-neutral shoe and the Alchemy is a very stable, motion
control-light shoe. Did a salesclerk pick these for you or did you pick them
off the wall yourself?

Donovan & all other Mizuno fans.....I noticed something...my Wave Creations
have the "wave caps" heading in one direction.....and my Wave Mavericks have
the "wave caps" heading into the opposite direction.  What's up with that?

Do any Mizuno fans keep up w/such detail and note this stuff?   It just strikes
w/me that that patented plastic "wave" piece embedded in the shoe woud be
consistent down the line of shoes.....from the standpoint of a proven
"technology"....unless the actual direction of the "waves" makes no difference
in the "ride"....

Not sure exactly, but the "wave" in the creation may well be substantially
different -- it's a heavyweight cushioning shoe, whereas the Maverick is a
lightweight stability shoe.

Don't know what you mean exactly btw (-;

Could vary depending on the desired balance between cushioning, stability and
weight.

If you think mocking you means I'm listening, then it's too late,
you've already gone blind.

Dingbat.  A fat lot of good that will do you.  Bill can morph faster that
you can say "Nikes suck".

Welcome to rec.running by the way. ;-)
