I've been running in the Mizuno Wave Inspire for several years, probably been through about a dozen pairs. I just bought the Wave Inspire 7 and what a huge disappointment. I hate the new redesign. The new higher cut makes this shoe feel more like a hiking boot than a running shoe. In fact, the right shoe rubs against my right ankle bone so badly that I simply can't use it. My right ankle bone throbs after a few miles in this shoe. So, even if you have been using the Wave Inspire for years (or perhaps especially if you have been using them for years) make sure and try these shoes out very carefully before you purchase. Unfortunately I didn't, so I spent over $100 on a pair of shoes that will soon be donated to the used-clothing store.
