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.
PROS (better aspects)
- lighter than the heavy kayano.
-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.
I did order a half size up (at another reviewer's suggestion), and they fit perfectly. Seems like a trend that they run small. They do look a little flashier than I'd like with the silver edging and bright yellow laces, but they are great for visibility in walking or running when its darker.
I usually run in Brooks Ravenna 2, but I will be sure to give these Mizunos a try -- if I ever get back to running!
