Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mizuno Men's Wave Creation 13 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I am a beginner to intermediate runner. I've been having pains in my left shin. My shoes were quite old and probably had in excess of 500 miles on them. So I decided to try to up the bar a bit and invest in a much nicer pair of running shoes than my old pair.
I went to runnersworld.com and checked out their shoe advisor. This was the first pair of shoes recommended. The description fit me pretty well. Amazon had a decent price, so I gave them a shot.
I ordered my exact size that I use for every other shoe/boot/sandal that I've purchased since I was 16. I've read and been told sometimes it's good to order a size up, which never seemed to make sense to me. So I got my size and right out of the box they fit just right.
5k is typically my maximum distance that I run. On my first run, I decided to "break them in" and have a nice, easy, short run to give them a try. I ended up running 5k at my typical pace before I started feeling the pains. I had no pain in my legs the entire run except for what you'd expect from muscle fatigue. I normally don't run back to back 5ks, but ended up running another 5k the next day because the shoes felt so good.
I will remain skeptical like I always am, but so far, this has been an absolutely awesome investment.

i'm curious as I think I am in the same boat as you. I came in I believe as an underpronator somewhat of a midfoot strike with average arch. My shoes have wear more on the outside.
