Best Wave Riders in Years

By Corinne

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

I love the WR 20's, so much so that I stocked up on a few extra pairs when the 21's were introduced. I've been wearing the Wave Riders for 12 years and this is one of my favorite updates. I run 3-4 times a week, anywhere from 4-20 miles at a time. I've worn these in 5K's, half marathons, and one marathon. They're lightweight enough to feel like you're flying, yet provide plenty of cushion for me. I usually get close to 500 miles out of these. Also, the blue color looks great!

Reliable Wave Rider 20s

By Barbara

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

Solid, reliable, comfortable shoe. I order them online and know they will fit. Not super long-lived if you're tough on shoes, but an excellent shoe nonetheless. Runs narrow, which works for me, but might not if your feet are wide.

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

Have worn Mizuno Wave Rider for many years, but current Wave Rider 20 causes pain because the toe area is too shallow. It presses down on my foot causing pain in ball of foot and big toe. Got out my old comfy Wave Rider 14's to compare. Wave Rider 20 length from lowest shoe lace to sole is 1/2 inch shorter than previous shoes. No wonder my feet hurt!

I like the lightweight feel of mizuno shoes. These are a little narrow, but still comfortable, and very cute. Haven't tried running in them, mostly just got them for walking shoes.

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

    I really like these shoes! I've been running in the Asics Gel Nimbus for the past couple of years, but the new model just didn't fit well (I'm so bummed). I had tried on an earlier pair of these at a local running store, so decided to go with them. Initially, I ordered a 10, because that is what I wore in the Gel Nimbus. My regular shoe size is a 9. The 10 were a bit too big, so I got the 9.5 and those are just right - enough room at the end of the toe but not too much. They fit really well, and are lightweight but still have a decent amount of cushion. Great shoes and great price!

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

    Mizuno has returned to its old fit and I'm back as well after a two year absence. The Wave Rider 20 is light, has good cushioning and the toe box is quite roomy. After two weeks of use I can say the shoe feels like the old Mizuno Wave Rider and should once again be my go to shoe this marathon season. I'm happy!

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

      I have always been a Mizuno shoe fan. I have owned just about all of them, but have never been 100% pleased. My fav go to running shoe was the mizuno wave prophecy. But when I was in desperate need of new shoes, I went through 4 different brands and styles to finally find this GEM! It's defiantly an excellent fit, plenty of room in the toe box, very lightweight, defiantly the shoe for me. I tend to be a heel stricker when I get tired and this shoe has plenty of cushion, my feet don't get tired in these shoes. I cannot say enough about this shoe. I'm extremely happy, satisfied. In fact, I'm writing this review because I have come back to road runners sports to buy another pair so when the pair I just bought wears out, I have a new pair!! These are not gonna get away from me!!!!

      Disappointed in the new Wave Rider. They seem to lack the same responsiveness that they had before. A bit too cushiony for me. Causing Achilles issues for me.

      I am a 50 year old female 3-7milesx5 days a week. This shoe was too tight in the forefoot so it got returned. I usually get normal width shoes and they are fine but these caused severe aching pain in the forefeet and toes after 2.5 miles and I had to take them off.

      I ordered these shoes by accident, I thought I ordered a different pair. I was pleasantly surprised upon trying them on, I have never owned a pair of Mizuno's. I love the way they fit. I ordered an 11 W. The shoe fit better in both length and width, than my old pair.

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoe:

      I ordered this shoe and the Saucony Triumph ISO3 to see which worked and felt better. I usually wear a 10 1/2 shoe - but on advice of previous reviews - ordered an 11 1/2 - full size up. I ordered wide to accommodate a shoe insert. I loved the style of this shoe, the weight and comfort. The wide was not extremely wide which was a bonus. However, I was too long and I really could use an 11 - just 1/2 size up.
      I was going to send it back, but my daughter said it would fit her and she would LOVE to have it. So, she is enjoying and very pleased with this shoe. I am going to order myself an 11 as I was very impressed with quality and style. Very streamlined looking in person, and good appeal.
