  • 5 out of 5 More flexibile in the forefoot and I can feel more cushioning in the heel comapared to the Inspire 7. Lighter feeling, and the same fit or similiar to the 6 model. The colors aren't too shabby either. Very pleased after two 7.5 mile training runs Bravo!!!

  • 5 out of 5 This shoe is light, sleek, has good stability, and its good for people who over-pronate. My right foot over pronates and it fixed it right away. The blue color of the shoe is actually a little bit deeper. I was having problems with my shin before I used this shoe. When I started running with the shoes the pain immediately went away. These shoes are magic--well not really, they are just high-tech Japanese shoes

  • This is the shoe the Inspire 7 should have been

  • 4 out of 5 Finally the shoe is back. I loved 5,6 but 7 was a disaster. I found the cushioning to hard. Just did not feel home. 8 I fell in love with again from day one and enjoy wearing them again. If you hated the 7, I am pretty sure you will love the 8 again.

  • A cracking shoe!

  • 5 out of 5 Returns to the fit of the Inspire 6. Fans of the Inspire 6 who didn't like the Inspire 7 will love the fit of this shoe. Better cushioning than either Inspire 6 or 7, but still with the trademark Mizuno road feel and smooth transition.
