Great update

By Brian

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

I have been running in the Inspire since the 9th edition, and ran multiple marathons in the 11 and 12 editions. The toe box is roomy without leaving too much space. Nice support underneath provided by the Wave technology. It's lighter than other stability shoes that I've used.

The only running shoe I will wear.

By Forest

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

I've bought this shoe 3 times in 4 years and no other wide running shoe keeps me on the road like this one. If you're a bigger guy (I'm 6'2, 220lbs) then this is the shoe for you.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

I'm one of Nike fans. This is my first pair of Mizuno and I can't wait to wear this pair to my next marathon. It seems like a lot comfortable than all running shoes that I have, good cushions! Just a little bit heavy which is totally fine to me. But sorry, I can't give it 5 stars because I realized that one of the shoe laces is about 3 inches shorter than another when I did the "lace lock" with the extra shoelace holes last week. I don't know why, anyway, it doesn't bother me too much.

Loving me some Mizuno Inspire 13's

By Jeremy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

While I was completely happy with all the great new features in my Inpsire 12's, I found the 13's to be a bit more comfortable. The 13's are still riding on the identical U4ic midsole which provides an excellent cushioning and seems to be quite durable. I really like the changes made to the upper, as it just seems to have a slightly more natural fit for my foot. Love the Inspires ability to support my stability issues, but still offer a nice light, smooth ride. Overall, other great evolution for the Inspire!

My Review

By Justin

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

Straight out of the box for 7 miles. Last pair were Mizuno Inspire 11s. 11s fit narrow to me so went with 2E in those and they are great shoes. The 13s are even better and fit true to size. I went with standard width and they felt and performed great. The most consistent lap times all year with zero discomfort. Very responsive shoe with more cushion than my 11s. Buy them if you can find them.

Fabulous Shoe for overpronators with flat feet!

By Mr. PTJ

from The Lou

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

I have been wearing this shoe since the Inspire 7. I have very flat feet and unstable ankles. Excellent grip around the ankle, good support, and generous amount or room to let your forefoot and toes flex...not to mention the superior cushioning. Please don't change this shoe...or at least the last.

Solid Shoe

By Kurt

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

This is a great shoe with a smart design. Lightweight and provides great support to stabilize your feet and ankles upon impact. Like most Mizuno models it is a bit loose in the toe box. Nothing that was a deal breaker. I usually purchase Brooks or Mizuno. These two companies are usually interchanged pending design changes, updates etc when I am looking at new shoes. Overall - I would give these Mizuno's a 4.5 out of 5 or an A-. Hope this helps!

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

I like the show but it seems to fall apart quicker than other running shoes. I run about 10-20 miles a week and also play indoor volleyball with these. The point in my toe box started coming apart after a month

Why did they change a great shoe?

By Jeff

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

I've bought and used multiple pairs of Mizuno Wave Inspire running shoes in the past. They have been my "go to" shoe for years. That is until the Wave Inspire version 13. The shoe is much heavier and kind of "clunky." The fit was different, it was like a completely different shoe than the previous versions. I returned it after 30 days. Thank goodness for the VIP program!

Good all purpose shoe. I use my Inspire 13 for daily runs and weekend long runs. Solid performer with good cushion and support. Not much different the the Wave Inspire 12s, but that is a good thing. Love them!

Been running for a couple of years using Asics GT2000 exclusively. I did my first run in these on Saturday and definitely a better shoe then the Asics GT2000. The shoe is more responsive and fits better then the competitors. I will update as I increase my mileage on these shoes.

      Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

      I used to love the Wave Inspire 9's, but when they created the ten the tongue was to short and I had to experiment with other shoes. Decided to try this shoe again, but they still don't have it right. It doesn't fit correctly around the outside of my right ankle and it causes the shoe to rub. This will not be good on a run so I will be returning these.

          Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 Running Shoe:

          This is the perfect shoe for a wide, flat foot. I've worn this model since the inspire 7 and the platform just keeps getting better. This model is only slightly better than the inspire 12, more cushion ,same basic fit. I do wish that Mizuno would offer more color variations in the 2E width though.
