The phenomenal fit and comfort had me grinning from the very first steps, and I love how light they are on my feet.
It is amazing they provide all the confort and support i need without weighing me down.
This shoe is lightweight, soft, fun, pretty, and I love it.

Product Description

The newest member of the neutral collection, The Wave Enigma is soft in all the right places, with the ride that you can only get from a Mizuno.

Mizuno delivers quite the fitness riddle with their Enigma running shoe. Great cushion and premium performance should be a paradox, but not in this sleek shoe. Ample mesh helps keep things cool as well.

    I bought my first pair of Mizuno Wave Enigmas at the NYC Marathon expo in November last year. The phenomenal fit and comfort had me grinning from the very first steps, and I love how light they are on my feet. For Christmas, I asked for another pair - so now I have them in both color designs.

    The only times I'm not wearing one of my pairs of Enigmas are when I'm wearing the Wave Cabrakans on the gravel (and often muddy) trails. Truth is, I'm turning into one of those people who wears running shoes almost all the time. My feet (knees & hips!) are so happy in my Mizunos that I feel as if I'm being punished when I have to wear so-called "real" shoes.

    Dear Mizuno, one request please? I need more than two color/design choices in order to flaunt my greatest assets with a wider fashion range :0)

    *Don't forget to size up 1/2 to a full size. If you've never been evaluated - arch, stride, pronation, etc. - by an expert, hit your local running/tri store. It's free, and a professional assessment that gets you into the right kind of shoe can transform your comfort and performance. If you've been evaluated but it's been more than 5 years, you might want to be checked again; like a lot of things body-wise, changes occur over time as we age. You wouldn't slack on having your vision checked, would you? Accurate fit and the proper type of shoes are just as crucial to your fitness health.

    Half size up! New to Mizuno. Usually size 7 (Eur size 38 = 24cm). However for these shoes US size 7 = Eur size 37 = 23.5cm. So, it's not that they FEEL half size shorter; they were made just like that. Unless, you are particularly looking for a pair to go with no socks. Otherwise, half size up. Other than that, it's a fairly nice neutral shoes.

    I've been a speed walker for years but walking shoes to me, we're always unattractive. About a year ago I decided to try running shoes to see if they fit my needs. Tried LOTS of brands but I'm an over pronator and not many shoes stabilize my foot comfortably. I bought a pair of Saucony that felt like my feet couldn't move at all inside the shoe, they were over stabilized.
    So I run across an adorable pair of runners by Mizuno, never tried them before but my college baseball playing son said they're a great brand, give them a try, so I did. Dear God, they were the BEST shoes in my life . Too funny that they were called Wave Nirvana 8 because Nirvana described them to a T.
    Unfortunately the mileage is up on those shoes and I desperately needed another pair. Called Mizuno......no more Wave Nirvana,m they were last years model. Mizuno had no real recommendations because these shoes are runners not walkers so I was on my own to find the next best pair.
    And thankfully that's exactly what I did, the Wave Enigma Running shoe should be what everybody wears, these babies are comfortable right out of the box!!!! Nice color, nice shape, fantastic fit. I'm good for another few hundred miles. Don't forget to size up a size, you will love them!!!
    Thank you Amazon and Mizuno.

    I love this shoe. I bought it to replace Wave Rider which Mizuno changed slightly but just enough to make it extremely uncomfortable. This is my second pair of Enigma and I immediately ran 29K in them with no issues. I have a fairly high arch and need room in the forefoot. This shoe has good cushioning and is narrow in the heel. I run marathons and put lots of mileage on my shoes so I will be sticking with these unless they change them. I'll be taking them with me to Boston this year.

It is amazing they provide all the confort and support i need without weighing me down. I absolutely love these shoes! I am excited and nervous to run my first half marathon, but with these shoes on my feet i know I can get it done!

    The reviews were right - these run small. I ordered a half size smaller than I usually wear in running shoes and I'm glad I did. My shoes were held up in customs and it took longer to get them but the shipper communicated w me by email to let me know and I could also see the delay in the shipping details. The shoes themselves are really comfortable and stylish and have been great for working out. Haven't gotten fully back to running yet after a hip injury but I am sure they will be great for running too. Happy with my purchase.

    It is an attractive shoe with ok cushioning. I don't feel too much in the toe/forefoot area though. The fit is tight in the forefoot area but not too bad if I wear a thin enough sock. I also thought the fit ran a bit small. I usually wear an 8.5 & w/ this one my toe comes almost too the end. This was the first pair of Mizunos & while it is a nice shoe & comfortable I don't think I would buy them again. I should have stuck with Saucony.

    This is my first pair of MiZuno's. I saw them at a running shoe store and loved them,but they were 150.00. found them on Amazon at a better price, and ordered them. They arrived in two days. They are light but have good arch support. Run true to size. I wear them to the gym.
