    I usually don't drop so much money on shoes, but I felt like I read every review written and I was sick of my cheap Adidas. I'm flatfooted, run about 10-15 miles a week, and am considering a marathon so I figured it was worth the extra money. Took my first run in them yesterday and they felt great. The toe box is very roomy, which I'm not used to. I guess I was accustomed to having my toes jam to the front of the shoe! The heel is nice and snug, which balances the toe box well. Like every other review says, they are amazingly light-weight. Motion control and stability in running shoes usually translates to heavy, cinder-block trainers. Overall, a great purchase.

    I normally purchase kayanos to support my flat feet during my runs. I have also started doing some modified barefoot runs, but can only do a few miles. Though I have been happy with the asic Kayano, they are a bit heavy and I started researching other good shoes for flat feet/low arches. If you go to Mizuno.com they have a precision fit analysis that is actually pretty comprehensive and pretty easy to complete. At the end they make some recommendation of shoes and show you what your running style looks like. I have seen myself run and it was pretty darn accurate to what my feet look like when I run. I have worn these shoes twice, but here's what I think so far: They are fantastic! I cut 25 seconds off per mile. I usually insert seperate insoles into my Kayanos, but have not had to yet with these shoes (again Ive only worn them twice), they are noticably lighter than the kayanos, not sure what the actual weight difference is, but even a few ounces makes a huge difference. A little about me, I have very low arches close to flat feet-doing the watermark test it looks like barney rubbles' feet. I am 5'7'', weight fluctuates between 132-140 pounds, I run anywhere from 30-40 miles/week. I would highly recommend these shoes, but recommend going to mizuno's website first to see what they recommend.

    I began (or attempted to start) running about four years ago. Prior to doing so I went to one of the specialty running stores where I explained that I ran distances when I was younger, but now--much to my chagrin--every time I run the bothersome shin splints soon follow. The salesperson fitted me in Mizuno Wave Inspire 3, which wound up being half-size larger then my normal women's size 10B shoe.

    Needless to say after four years of on and off training it was time to get a new pair of running shoes. Currently, I'm running approximately 30 miles a week and walking an additional 10 miles. After growing a strong attachment to my Inspire 3's, I was pleasantly surprised to find out the Runner's World had rated the Wave Inspire 7 as one of the top running shoes for 2010. So I took a gamble and order these from Amazon (same size 10.5B women's shoe). To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. My first time out in these shoes I went five miles and the only difference I noticed was how much lighter the Inspire 7's were compared to my old Inspire 3. (I should mention that I removed the traditional Mizuno sole inserts for the inserts from my Inspire 3's for added stability.) I've been running in my new Inspire 7's for over a week without a single problem. I'm seriously considering getting an additional pair.

    I am mid to lighter weight woman with flat feet. Love these running shoes. Great deal, great price. I inadvertently ordered 3 pair...will definately use them. Run and cross train 6 days a week. Mizunos don't often go on sale so getting these for the price I did was awesome. I run in saucony as well. Do not like any Nike or Asics running shoes. Just have not had good experience with those brands on my feet.

    The Mizuna Womens Wave Inspire VS Kayno: Both Good...Kayano perhaps better

    PROS (better aspects)
    - lighter than the heavy kayano.
    -cheaperto buy
    -yellow colour is cool/different.
    -grip is spikier therefore feels grippier.
    -solid ankle support created from high lacing

    CONS (where the kayano beats it)
    -not as cushioning
    -not as long-term comfortable. I find my legs ache a little more after a long run vs my older kayanos.
    -doesnt feel as strong and supportive as the kayano.
    -sizing is small.

    No loss in purchasing this item. I run 3 times a week in them for a solid 6-8km, and i play netball in them 2 times a week. Never have had a blister nor rubbing.
    The main notable difference for me has been the added ankle support. I personally do not like this feature as the tight lacing up to the ankle feels as if it will rub the skin surrounding (however to date has not!)
    Having only worn for about 2 months i have a feeling they will not last as long as a kayano.

    After loving (and completely wearing out) my Wave Inspire 5's, I decided to get a new pair of the same brand and style. Big mistake. The Inspire 7's do not retain the cushiony, lightweight feel of the 5's, the tongue is huge, and the heel is very high and pinches my ankle, making the shoes very uncomfortable to run in. Mizuno, why did you ruin a great product?

    I was fitted for running shoes last year and loved the pair of Wave Inspire 6 shoes I came out with. I loved those so much I ran them completely in the ground and then looked to buy a new pair on Amazon. Amazon didn't have the Inspire 6 in the size I was looking for, so I upgraded to the 7s. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews that didn't like the new features, but once I got the shoe I loved it. It is a little roomier in the toe than the 6, but it doesn't bother me at all and now that I'm used to it I like it better. It was also a cheaper price than I would have paid at a running store.
