Every time I would try to take them off, a man would show up out of nowhere and tell me that if I didn't want them I shouldn't have put them on in the first place. When I tried to explain they were forced upon me he would say if they were legitimately forced on me, my body would have rejected them. And if that was the case, i should have taken them off sooner. Luckily I had the means to leave the state. At which point I could finally take those shoes off.
I was squeamish about buying new shoes for many years after that incident. After much thought and deliberation with my family, I decided that the time was right. It was time to buy new running shoes. I wanted a pair I could stand in. Be proud of. That say "this is my choice and it is the right choice for me." I tried on the Mizuno women's wave rider 16. They were perfect. The fit, the style, the longevity. I feel like I can stand all day long and fight back against all the pushy salesmen when I have them on. They are the perfect choice for me and I hope you can find your choice too.
What have I got to say about these shoes?
Amazing. With my previous sneakers I never felt enthusiastic about running, it was a hassle, but I guess that what I got for purchasing $40 shoes. My heels would hurt I would get new blisters, it was hell! So finally I decided to invest a few more dollars for better shoes. With these shoes I feel like I can run more miles that I previously had done. These shoes provide wonderful cushioning, I no longer feel the horrendous impact of the cement. Rather now I feel like I'm riding the wind. Wonderful.
Mesh. . . the shoe is very breathable
The heel. . . the added height provides the perfect impact reduction
Style. . . I found it to be very aesthetically pleasing to the eye, it was true to the image. I ordered the white/ultraviolet
I have yet to find any, but if I do I will surely update this review.
I would recommend this product to anyone who runs on a daily basis and for long periods of time.
Fit is perfect (in that I am typically a half size up in sneakers versus dress/casual shoes). Laces hold well and do not slip out of their knots, but took me a little time to properly tighten where I wanted them to tighten (seemed too tight in one spot at first, but worked it out).
I run on asphalt and concrete and found the transition from my summer pairs of Adidas Climacool to be about a week until I was comfortable with these. The month and weeks following have been a breeze. Cushioning is perfect, the sole is great, even for someone who toe strikes often. I also tend to underpronate, underpronation (supination) involves pushing off from the outside of the heel rather than a more even push-off across a greater part of the foot, and these shoes have actually helped correct that problem. I did not expect that. * Wanted to add that my arches are closer to flat than normal. Good shoes for both underpronation and flat feet :)
I'm 5'8", 130lb, and run easy 9:30/m pace in these and i have been very satisfied. I wear these with a pair of smartwool socks, and found they work well in temp ranges from 30 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I switch to my NF Ultra Guide trail shoes with goretex when it's rainy/slushy though, as these shoes do have some mesh at the front.
Function well and the black with neon highlights looks neat too.
