Could not be happier
on July 17, 2012
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!
