Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

Superb right out of the box for either faster paced training, speedwork or all distance racing! Just the right amount of medial support along with solid (not mushy) heel and forefoot cushioning in a light weight package.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

Statring on my 3 pair have had nothing but greta results. including 3 weekend back to back marathons with PR on the 1st and 3rd. I used to go back and forth between Ascics and Mizunos. Mizunos will be my choice shoes for marathons.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

Great shoe. Fits well, feels fast and light for longer training runs. Lower heel height gives good feel of the road. This shoe is for mild pronators. If you pronate excessively, you should look at another model. I'd say that even faster, neutral runners could run this shoe with no problems.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

THIS SHOE SUCKS!!! it only got one star b/c there isn't an option for zero stars.
i have to retract my previous review because i made it in anticipation of getting a shoe like the original Elixir...i was wrong. the changes mizuno made are horrible. the heel is too narrow, all the stability features are gone, there is no arch support, and the toe box (which is supposed to be wide) has less room than the original model. i've run less than 15 miles in these shoes over 4 days and the heels of my feet still hurt.
the original elixir was the best shoe i've worn in over 6 yrs of running and the elixir 2 is easily one of the worst. why "fix" what's not broken mizuno? this shoe can in no way be classified as any kind of stability shoe, it's better for a neutral runner.
i'm told that mizuno is making less arch support and narrower heels a new thing in all their shoes. if that means more shoes like the elixir 2 then i'm afraid i'm gonna have to find a new brand.

I like this shoe, and have also switched over from the ruined DS-Trainer line from Asics. However, I don't find these as stable as the DS-Trainers.

i have had numerous pairs of the Elixir. havent' tried the Elixir 2 yet, but they seem to be practically identical. this shoe rocks!!!!
i was a serious college runner and i wore this shoe every day while running 100 mile weeks. i used to be a new balance guy, but this shoe made me come over to mizuno. i highly recommend them.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

A very good performance shoe for runners with normal to high arches. However the midsole cuhsioning feels flat and less supportive at 250 miles. I have not found this problem with Mizuno Precision or Rider. I conclude that the Eleixir is not made for everyday use.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

Great fit for a narrow foot ... I normally buy 12.5 B width (when available in shoes like Brooks Adrenaline or Ascics 21xxs) but this shoe fits superbly in 12.5 D. Great stability in such a lightweight shoe.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Elixer 2 Running Shoe:

I was a loyal Asics customer until they changed the DS Trainer. The Elixir has filled in nicely--so much so that I recently purchased two more pairs and have even put my GT's on the shelf. Now, they are all I wear.
