They actual upper is nice and airy... I felt plenty of wind on my feet during my run. I use a metatarsal insole so I just removed the ones that came with the Mizuno's. The toe box is snug, but not tight. The lacing system feels good and my foot feels hugged. The inner ankle bone does come right to the top of the shoe so it feels a bit funny, but I run in Thor Lo running socks with arch support so no abrasive or tender feeling.
I wear a street shoe size 9-9.5 and ordered a size 11 in these. They do run quite small. My other running shoes are 10.5 and these size 11 feel like those 10.5s. The color is great. A nice dark shoe with bursts of a deep, berry red. Not to mention it's just a cool and funky looking shoe.
I started running in them, little by little until I had them broken in. They felt like they conformed and supported my feet just the way you'd dream a running shoe would! They quickly became my most comfortable pair of running shoes (and I do have quite a few) and the only pair I would wear for running. Now I'm training for a half-marathon and I really wouldn't dream about training in any other shoes than my Mizuno's.
It may take a quick-minute to break them in... But once you do, you will love these shoes forever!
These are super comfortable, but I don't think they're a 'miracle' as others as said. I don't notice a big difference over my previous Mizunos or Brooks, but I do love them.
UPDATE: I changed my mind a bit, these are really wonderful, just ran my longest run ever (16 miles) and I have no after-run knee pain or foot pain like I often get with even shorter runs. These shoes did not feel strange to me as some reviewers said, they felt normal. There was no breaking in time, my favorite shoes met with an accident right before a 1/2 marathon. I wore these only once before that for 6 miles, and then for the 1/2. No problems whatsoever. You will love these - but shop around, I got the for less than Amazon is selling them for.
