Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

I purchased this shoe for my husband as he has previously worn and liked the Wave Rider and Wave Creation shoes by Mizuno. After wearing once, he complained that it was uncomfortable and wouldn't be wearing it again. My brother-in-law, who wears the same size shoe and also has run in Mizuno, tried this pair of shoes and he too said he couldn't wear them as they "cut in to the sides of his feet". This was our first experience with the Wave Rider 20; maybe something was modified?

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

Love the waverider shoe. I have had many pairs over the last 7 years now. The only problem I have with this shoe was that there was not enough arch support. Luckily I had my inserts from Road Runner Sports and put them in. Now I run great in them. The previous WaveRiders did not need the inserts because the shoe had enough arch support. Otherwise a good shoe overall.

By John

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

This was my first pair of Wave Riders that didn't fit. I have purchased several and have always ordered 10/2E. The version 20 were too long and too wide. I had to return. The Vietnamese making the shoe are not using old models, they messed up and no quality control caught their mistake. Maybe I need to buy American like New Balance.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

This is the second pair of Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe that I have bought. I had previously used a Mizuno with a thicker heal and was nervous about switching but was totally wrong. These are lightweight and great for running. I will likely order this model again when I run this pair into the ground.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

I have always been a die-hard New Balance loyalist, particularly their 1200-series shoes. Unfortunately, New Balance hasn't done it for me lately and I decided to try something else, eventually landing on the Mizuno Wave Rider 20s. After putting 400 miles on my first set, I'm here today to buy another set up Wave Rider 20s. They're a great shoe overall, particularly for my 2E wide feet. They do run a 1/2 size bigger, so factor that into your purchase. They've been comfortable for me doing long or short runs and I typically run on pavement/concrete roads/sidewalks. There are occasions when I hit the heel a little hard and the Wave Riders aren't as cushioned as a New Balance 1260. Still, they're nicely padded in the mid- and front-sole and they're very lightweight and comfortable on a 10+ mile run. A great buy overall!

Wave riding

By Seth

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

I purchased at least 5 pairs of the wave rider 19 and so I thought I'd try the new 20's. Nice all around shoe for any distance and they are light enough to do speed work and tempo work. Heel drop is 12mm, the highest, so it has a tendency to limit a runner to heel striking. I love the wave riders but I rated them a 3 because they just don't last very long and running shoes can get expensive, especially if you are running a lot. I think it can have more cushioning in the front of the shoe without compromising on the performance benefits of the shoe as well. It wraps a narrow foot well and wraps your heel so nicely so that it will not slip, great shoe for fit purposes. I wish a could get the same fit feeling in the new Wave Sky which leaves a lot of room in the toe box compare to the Wave Riders.

Improved changes from the 19

By Stan

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

I liked the 18's, didn't like the 19's and now back to a comfortable run with the 20's. Great cushion in the mid & heel. Will probably buy another pair to have for the future in case Mizuno decides to make changes on the 21 release.

Great having chosen EE: lots of room in the toes. Lightweight, fast shoes. I did a 10-mile run right out of the box, and no issues with running or blisters. This is my fourth pair of Mizunos, my new go-to brand of running shoe.
