Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 Running Shoe:

Not only do I rotate shoes but I also rotate brands. The wave inspire was the first Mizuno shoe I tried. My favorite is the Inspire 9. The 10 and 11 in my opinion were setbacks. This shoe is more in line with the Inspire 9

Typical Mizuno

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 Running Shoe:

Certainly not a bad shoe, but not for me. Just like most/all Mizuno shoes I have ever run in, its just too firm; especially in the forefoot. The heel also felt a little too high for me (and I like at least a 8mm drop). The forefoot felt like bare feet running on cement. Just way too firm.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 Running Shoe:

I have been a fan of Wave Inspire since the 7s came out. Most upgrades have been good, but the 12s have been the best upgrade ever. I noticed right away a roomier toe box and improved cushioning, which has made marathon training just a bit more comfortable. I plan to keep a few of these in rotation throughout the summer. Good overall shoe!

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 Running Shoe:

I raved about this shoe in an earlier review, and now I'm gonna have to downgrade the shoe. So, now I've had my 2 pair exactly 2 weeks. I run 25-30 miles/week and rotate the 2 pair. I read 2 reviews here or somewhere else where the reviewers claimed the shoes didn't breath very well. Let me add to that. They don't seem to breath and all. After about 25 miles on each pair, the uppers get soaking wet and I have to take the insert out and let it dry separately from the rest of the shoe. And, they get salt stains and honestly, they stink after 2 weeks. I've never had this problem with any other shoe, and I just switched to this shoe having owned 4 pair of Nike Vomero 10s. IF the breathability issue were not an issue, this might have been the best fitting, firm cushioned, light stability shoe I've ever worn. The fact they don't breath makes the shoe a deal-killer for me. Back they go.

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 Running Shoe:

    First, I just received these shoes yesterday and went out on a brief 3.1 run to test them out, so I have no idea yet on how durable these shoes are, but here are my initial impressions. I am 6'2" tall and I won't say I'm an efficient runner, but I do run about 25 miles a week, including at least one 5 or 10k/month. I overpronate. I have feet that generally are too wide for a D width, but a 2E can sometimes be a bit wide. Depends on the brand and "overlays" on the upper. My last two "go to" shoes were Saucony Triumph 1 and for the last year, Nike Vomero 10. I tended to prefer a neutral, highly cushioned shoe that had a rather firm feel, and the Nike certainly had that. I began thinking I might try a shoe with just a slight amount of stability. It seems options are neutral and way too much stability, then motion control (not even part of this discussion.) The most popular stability shoes seem to be the Brooks Adrenaline GTS and Asics Kayano. Both very good shoes. My problem is 1) I have medium to low arches and both shoes's stability "bars" seem to protrude into my arch and 2) way too much correction. Enter the Mizuno Wave Inspire 12. Plenty of cushioning for a stability shoe and the cushioning is a bit firm. My guess that will soften up a bit, but it's fine with me to have firm cushioning. Nice, roomy, toe box. No overlays on the upper, so the material "gives" a bit. While it's marketing hype that would say that the wave plate actually propels you forward, there is something to be said for the type of heel cushioning it provides. It's a different, yet good, feel. To sum it up: Great fit, plenty of cushioning, albeit firm (if you want cloud-like, think Asics, this is not that,) mild support. And, while this doesn't matter, they look good, and are available at a decent price point. I'd say that after owning 4 pair of Nike Vomero 10's that the Mizuno Inspire is now my running shoe of choice. My second pair will be here tomorrow from RRS.
