      I got an early pair from the Mizuno guy and was running a race the next weekend. I had only run a short run in them and decided to wear them in the race - it was risky but paid off! Lightweight and responsive. Snug fit without a lot of play in the toe box. Set a new PR.

      The Wave Precision 11s are okay. They are comfortable on my feet. Not particularly light or fast. For day to day training they are fine for a neutral trainer. The Wave Precision tend to last a long time.

        Shoe must be ordered 1/2 size larger than normal. A good looking, good feeling, lightweight running shoe. I ran with them on a 13.5 mile trail run, followed by an 18 mile road run 2 weeks later. They were comfortable and despite the light weight, the shoes were fairly supportive and did not exacerbate some nagging chronic injuries that I have. I plan on wearing them for a marathon on 5/28/11.

          The Precision line is my favorite running shoe and this latest installment has not disappointed. The Precision 11 has maintained it's classic 'firm' feel. Overall, the Precision is well-cushioned enough for my everyday training and still light enough and flexible enough that I can use it for my tempo runs. My only complaint is the orange color sole.

            I have 3 pairs of the Precision 11 in the rotation right now. I've tried others but I come right back to these. I use these for short and long distances as well as track workouts. I have seperate racers but I have used these for some half marathons so that I could use my orthodics. They feel like they position my foot in a better stance than other performance neutral shoes I have tried. The colors have been pretty sweet on the 11s as well.

                This is my second pair of mizunos. I usually prefer adidas or asics but this is probably my favorite pair of running shoes in my closet. Cushioning is impressive as well as colors and breathability. I have a narrow foot and this shoe has plenty of room. I love this shoe.

                      I switched to these when New balance discontinued its lightweight trainers. Good thing, because I like these even better. I run about 18-20 miles a week, mostly 3-5 miles per run. I have a neutral foot-strike and these give me just enough cushioning without turning my foot. They are also very durable. The NB's rarely lasted more than 400 miles, but I have worn these for more than 500 miles before they breadown.

                          Excellent light weight trainer. Best feel for the road of all mizuno prescision runners I've used. I'm a high mileage, neutral runner that likes a minimal, light shoe. This one fits the bill.

                            The shoe is fairly light but at 10 ounces, not a true minimalist shoe. The heel also seems significantly higher than the forefoot as compared to Minamalist shoes. The shoe is very breathable, fairly good impact protection, not too soft and reasonably light. They did well on my hill workouts up and down an over pass featuring a mix of concrete and asphalt. My one negative of the shoe is the fairly stiff heel counter that is not normally found on a minimalist shoe. On my 10 mile run, my first in these shoes, I got a blister on the inside of the heel due to the firmness of the heel counter. I'll wear thicker socks hoping they will break in better.

                                  I am 6'1'' and 195lbs with low arches, and was training for a half marathon.[...]stability shoes b/c I over-pronate and have flat feet. My knees hurt after the first run. After the second run I brought them back(different store) and asked for a neutral running shoe; I absolutely love these shoes and will buy another pair. They are so light and comfortable.I just set a pr at the half; I attribute that to my training, not the shoes, but it all begins with a awesome pair of running shoes. I'll never buy into the stability argument again.

                                    I use the precision as a trainer for my fast days and even my progression long runs. Could also be used as a racing shoe. Feels light and fast without giving up the needed support for long runs and longer tempo runs.

                                      I have used the asics gel speedstar for years for faster workouts. These are a very similar shoe, light weight, responsive, good forefoot cushioning. Speedstar is a little lighter though. Overall, i like this shoe and would buy another pair.
