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!
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!
Still, I like the color combo and have gotten numerous compliments on these shoes, which is weird since I never expect to get compliments about my athletic gear...

SHoes are super light - which is great - but do not have as much cushion as I had hoped.Published 23 months ago by GC
So light. So comfortable. I'll never be able to go back to other running shoes.
The sizing is pretty spot on as well.
These shoes didn't need any "breaking in". They were comfortable from day one. I've had them for almost a year and they are holding up well.Published on December 8, 2013 by Grand Ma-ma
I have the Wave Elixir 5. So I decided to buy this 7 without trying it on in a store. Big mistake. While I like running in this shoe, it is drastically different from the 5. Read morePublished on November 29, 2013 by SFLspearo
