Nice and narrow
on October 1, 2010
I'm tall and have long, narrow feet. I love this shoe because the longer size that I wear is simply that - longer - not bigger, chunkier, heavier and more masculine looking than the size 7 version. The 2A (narrow) fitting is streamlined and sleekly shaped to hug the subtle contours of a narrow (2A) or slim (3A) heel and arch while providing enough room and good space in the toes to minimize stress in this part of the shoe. It is a treat to have a shoe that is accurately proportioned to accommodate and flatter a longer female foot - most don't (polite understatement). Nice arch support. The sole is cushy but not inflated-looking like many seem to be this season. I find that the Mizuno Wave Rider 13 is versatile for gym wear, fitness classes, and walking as well as the running activities for which it has been designed. It will also be ideal for travel in moderate/warm climates - light, flexible construction ensures comfort and coolness and also makes them easy to pack, even in my size!
