Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 4 Running Shoe:

I have tried numerous running shoes over the years and absolutely love these.
They are so light and airy.
The only problem is what Ali mentioned, the rubbers wore off real fast. I have to replace these shoes about every 100 miles, but it's worth it to me.
Today I am going to buy the WAVE Creation 11 and try them out.

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 4 Running Shoe:

I really like these, I have only worn the wave creations for the past couple of years but wanted to try something lighter for races. I was nervous b/c any shoe I have worn other then the wave creation gives me bad shin splits but these are great! Now I even wear them for every other training run!

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 4 Running Shoe:

As a sprinter, these shoes were good for about the first week I had them. They felt nice and light when I first put them on. But with the sprint and rotary drills and the constant fast paced intervals, the rubbers at the bottom started peeling off within the second to third week. There are three others with this shoe on my team, and we've all had problems with this shoe wearing down way too quickly. I've had mine for a month now, and I'm already in need of a new pair of shoes.

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 4 Running Shoe:

I love this shoe. It is the first running shoe I have purchased that felt good right out of the box. I know this is more of a racing shoe, but I run about 30 miles a week and wear these almost exclusively. I have tried to rotate other shoes in, but I keep reaching for these.

I love this shoe. I have been training 5 miles a day. I ran 10 miles in the Elixir 4 and I have no pain at all. A great lightweight shoe. I am looking forward to my next race with these shoes.

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 4 Running Shoe:

I totally agree with Laura. This used to be my favorite shoe ever, until they changed it for the Elixir 3 or 4. Now I get blisters on my little toes and my arches are screaming. I'm heading out to buy a replacement today. Very sad.

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 4 Running Shoe:

Terrible shoe. The Elixer used to be such a good shoebut they have changed it so much. With first wear I felt it rub on my ankle. After running 5 miles on a treadmill to test them out my ITB flared up because I was trying to compensate for the ankle rubbing. I'm so disappointed and am sending them back.
