EVOLUTION OF THE WAVE RIDER
Reviewer: Keith Omura | Webster Groves, Mo.
I've had 6 generations of Wave Riders that fit to my feet perfectly. The current generation has
modifications that hurt my feet. "THEY DON'T
MAKE THEM LIKE THEY USED TO!!!!!!!!!!!
not for me
Reviewer: Keith | Bellefontaine
so thankful the WR 16 is still available. Thinking the 17 would be an even improved experience, I bought a pair. To my disappointment, I developed a blister and ended up returning the shoes. Never a problem with the 16; could wear and race in them from the 'git-go'. Maybe the 18's will correct the problem . . . seemingly the 17 is just a bit tooooo snug!
Close But "No Cigar"
Reviewer: Patrick | West Texas
My first pair of Mizunos. I've owned the 17s for a few weeks now, and have worn them on five (or so) runs. Satisfaction turned to disappointment with each wear.
From an appearance standpoint, I love this shoe. It's also light, has a comfortable sole as a heel-to-toe striker, and is very breathable.
Unfortunately, though, it seems that my ideal size would be between an 11 and 11.5; 11 is a bit too snug, 11.5 a bit too large. Also, the upper area close to the tongue rubs against my ankle (no matter where/how I tie the laces) causing noticeable discomfort. Hasn't caused a blister but definitely enough to distract from my run.
It's entirely possible that these "cons" are limited to me. I will be returning the shoes but would still recommend them to others considering making the switch to Mizuno.
