      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 5 Running Shoe:

      About me: Wide forefoot with bunions and narrow ankles, 120 lbs. Toebox is just wide enough and shoes provide good late-stage pronation control with orthotics. Good for turn-over rate because they don't force you into a heel strike like most stability shoes. Lightweight and zippy for shorter runs or racing. Probably not enough cushioning for long runs or races.

        great fit, wish they lasted longer though, the bottoms wear too quickly for my liking. . wore thru in two months the last pair. But they are light and breath great and very comfortable even on a long run, (ran 30 miles last week in rain)! I am training for an ultra and know that these will get me to the finish!

                  I have a slight overpronation that this shoe really seems to help me stabilize. The shoe has just the right amount of cushion and breathability. This is my second pair and if it is a continued product, I will buy another pair.

                  Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 5 Running Shoe:

                  I am a Mizuno die hard and always wear an 8.5 but in this shoe I think I need a 9. I had sore toes after the first run and had a blood under my big toenail on the right foot. Other than that problem, everything else felt fine. So, if ordering this shoe you may want to go up a half size bigger than your normal Mizuno size.
