My first pair of Mizunos and probably my last. I typically wear New Balance in size 16B and bought this when it was deeply discounted. I've been using them for the last month, hoping that the break-in period would make the pair more comfortable. My hopes were dashed after a long run this weekend when the bad design created excessive ankle pain.
Pros: Good support stride control is fantastic good fit for a narrow foot--wide toe box but easy to lace tight looks good
Cons: BIGGEST: the deep heel cup causes the sides to rub against my ankle bone. Others may not have this problem but for me it made this shoe unusable. After a 10k run the pain was considerable and I had to take the next two days off from running shoe is stiff and never broke in after a month of use not very well cushioned
