I tried on my first Mizunos just about a year and a half ago after wearing Brooks and haven't looked back. I've taken a pronation test to see what type of shoe I need, and it seems as if one of my legs is slightly longer than the other (which I think is pretty common for people and is definitely not noticeable). My feet are somewhere in between light support and a neutral shoe with about a medium-wide toe box.

My first Mizunos were the Wave Elixir 6 which I ended up falling for. After about a year and a half, I figured it was time for a new pair of shoes (running about 14-21 miles a week on average). Of course, it's recommended to change your shoes about once every 6 months so it may be best not to take the risk. I do find, however, that a Dr. Scholl's heel insert really pushes your shoe to its tread and comfort limit.

I have never had a problem with these shoes, but keep in mind that everyone's pronation is different so it's best to find the shoe that is right for you. [...] As a runner, I also recommend ordering your shoe a half size up since your feet tend to expand when you sweat.

I'm also an artist and am always looking for something on the more vibrant end of the spectrum in my running shoes, and these never fail to dissapoint. I love wearing my new Mizunos! Not only do they have a fun attractive design; they are also completely comfortable and cradle my entire foot which is great on a long run or any kind of training class. Enjoy!

Everyone's feet are different, and I've found that my feet fit best in Mizuno running shoes. I've run my half in them, and have never looked at another brand.

The Wave Elixir continues with a lightweight shoe that fit my feet to a T! My previous Mizuno Wave Elixirs have included the Elixir 4, and the Elixir 5. I truly missed my Elixir 4 after having bought the 5. The 5, to me, seemed more narrow around the front, but had a longer toebox, neither of which felt that comfortable. Once I put the Elixir 7's on, it felt like my beloved Elixir 4's -I was in heaven.

I'm surprised to have seen some reviews mentioning that it's narrow, as it was not for me, but if you're looking for an overall lightweight runner, give this one a try.

Perhaps my feet have expanded every which way, but I originally though my toe was too close to the front of the shoe, so I went home to try my old runners - it seemed to also be very close to the front. I tried a half size bigger, and it just didn't fit the same. Anyway, I have run in them and have had no issues whatsoever with my toe hitting the front of the shoe. The sizes are the same as with previous versions.

As well, it is very flexible, and have had no issues with the flexibility while running.

Finally, I give kudos to the designers of this year's running line - it's colourful and fun!

This is a fabulous lightweight light stability shoe that feels very similar to the old Saucony Fastwitch 4 shoe. For those who loved the Fastwitch 4 - these feel similar except the toe box is wider and more flexible. Seeing as Saucony no longer make my beloved 4's and the newer models are a completely different shoe, this shoe is a fantastic alternative, albeit more pricy. Love it

These sneakers are, by far, the lightest I have ever worn. I feel like I am getting the support I need (I overpronate) with barely anything on my feet! Mizuno has become the only sneaker I will purchase because they fit, feel, and perform the best of all the others I have tried.

These shoes are awesome!!! They are very comfortable! I have torn tendon in my left foot and these have helped me in my running again. They are light weight but nicely cushioned in the heel.

I usually go with Asics Gel for running 15-30 miles/week. I decided to try these based on Runners World recommendation for someone with a BMI less than 23 and high arches. I do not overpronate so I go with a cushion shoe. I will be sticking with Mizunos from now on!

These are the most comfortable running shoe I have ever worn. I work out often, and they are great support on my feet. I was given a 20.00 discount for an Amazon.com promotion, so I purchased this pair using the discount. The colors are beautiful as well. I recommend them without reservation or hesitation whatsoever.

Very comfortable shoe, great for my long shifts on my feet. Size seems to run slightly larger than my other Mizunos.

This is a great running shoe. I had tried Brooks Pure Connect and it was not structured enough for me. This shoe is just enough structure to prevent injury but still have the minimalist feel. Love them!
