I have worn this shoe for the six years that I have been running. A few times I have tried other brands and/or models, but I always come back to this one. Great fit and I feel great in them. I do have to order a size larger than I wear in regular shoes due to the narrow toe area, but I love them.
Reviewer: Rhonda Fabre | Broussard
This is the first time I've ordered a running shoe online. Did my first 5K in them yesterday after wearing them for 1 week. My last pair of running shoes were Mizuno Wave Precision, which I loved, and was told that this is comparable to it, they are not, but its still a great shoe! They are comfortable, great cushion, shins and feet didn't hurt after, which is a plus!

Love these shoes. Having issues with my shins and feet and bought these shoes that were recommended by my local running store. Bought them in two colors. About to buy a 3rd pair. Love the fit, love the feel, love the support.
Best running shoe ever!

After a stress fracture in my ankle, Achilles pain, and a lifetime of knee problems, I decided to invest in the shoes that felt best. While amping up my running (about 6 miles/day), my injuries healed and my knees are giving me less trouble than EVER! Big fan of these shoes! And attractive to boot! I bought in 2 different colors.
Reviewer: Christina | Louisville, KY
Very pleased with these shoes. This is my second pair of Mizuno's... Loved my first pair so much that I decided to stick with 'em. I normally wear a size 8, but I found 8.5 works better for me. I use these shoes for running and work (12 hr shifts on my feet all day). They feel great and I love the colors!
