Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Running Shoe:

These shoes really have plusses and minusses and they are only right for you if you like a certain ride. They are definetely a harder shoe in terms of cushion/shock absorption. In that regard I don't really like them because I am a midfoot striker and I feel kind of beat up after running in them for a long period of time. On the other hand, Mizuno does have a nice responsiveness to their shoes. So if you are running faster, they do seem to have a certain "energy" that helps you along rather then hinders you like some shoes that are softer but just flat. They are a lower profile shoe and there's not a ton of room in the toe box in terms of volume so my toe nails get squooshed a lot. I have been wearing Mizunos for years but I think this is my last pair simply because I want more cushion. The problem is finding a pair of trainers that are as light as these. When you get more cushion, you get weight. That's the trade off. So it really is a personal thing.

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Running Shoe:

    I have been running in Mizunos for years but just switched to the Wave Riders last year. I have to say I love these shoes. The best way to describe them is that I never think about them when I'm running. They fit so well that I never give them a second thought once I lace them up. I am now on my third pair and don't plan to switch any time soon.

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Running Shoe:

    This is quite a small shoe compared to other brands. The original size I bought was too small, I had to go from narrow to medium width and up half a size in length.
    The rubber on the sole seems more durable than other shoes I've tried.
    My feet get hotter in these shoes than other brands I've tried.

    I am a competitive runner mostly concentrating on long distance. (1/2 marathon and marathons) I love these shoes and wear nothing else. But I only get two months wear out of them. That gets very expensive after a while. I go through 3 pair training for a marathon. The outside of the heel just shreds like an old tire. I'd love to know what causes this and if anyone else has this complaint.

    Would be nice if they lasted longer, but I hope they keep making them because they're the only shoes that allow me to marathon train without shin splints and plantar faciitis! I've been a fan since the 7's...tried a few different shoes in between models...came back every single time completely satisfied with this product!

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Running Shoe:

      I am an avid runner; running 30+ miles per week. I'm very particular about my running shoes. My favs have always been New Balance, until I discovered Mizuno Wave Riders. I have a wider foot so other brands like Nikes and Asics are too narrow in the toes. I have bought the last 3 series of Mizuno - now the 13 series. The most awesome fit, great flexibility and light weight. Everyone's foot is different, but if you are an underpronator and like a light weight (less cushiony) shoe, definitely give it a try!

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Running Shoe:

      These shoes are great! They feel already broken in when I put them on and are really light. I stopped at the 10's and I am glad I came back to the 13's. I have always found the WR to be less cushioned which I like a lot because cushioned shoes are heavier and I feel I can run farther with light shoes. If you are looking for more support/ cushioning try the Mizunos for stability.

      By Donna

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Rider 13 Running Shoe:

      Oh no, they did it again. I only like about every third Wave Rider version.
      This shoe is hard and flat. It feels like it has already been worn out. If I had wanted racing flats, that's what I would have ordered. Notice the weight difference between the 12's (11.? oz) and the 13's (8.6 oz). From what I can tell, that was all cushioning.
      I have only run in them once and will give them another chance, but I am not encouraged. New shoes should feel better than that. I wish I had ordered more 12's while they still had my size.

      I've purchased wave rider 13s for my last five pairs of running shoes and never had a problem. However, in this last pair, i actually had to buy insoles because the balls of my feet hurt after running only about 60 miles. Unusual! I've loved all my previous wave rider 13s.

                  I have been running in the Wave Rider since for over 6 years. Each model gets better and better. They are so lightweight for a neutral shoe that you don't need a performance or race flat for racing. I have a narrow foot but stay secure in these. I will keep wearing the Wave Rider as long as they are made.

                    I started running in these on the recommendation of a physical therapist because I get horrible shin splints. While the shoes haven't fixed the problem entirely they have made a huge difference. Better, much much better!

                    I am a running coach (for fun) and love this shoe. I have tried others, but keep coming back to the same one. I have worn Mizuno Wave Creation in the past and like it as well, but since I am just a forefoot runner the Wave Rider seemed to do everything I needed for less money. When you are training for marathons, shoe replacements seem to come quite often!! So, the less money,...the better!! :)

                    Normally I wear Asics, but my mom and husband love their mizunos so I decided to try a pair. I'd say they fit very similarly to the Asics Cumulus and Nimbus. I bought my usual running shoe size 7.5 and it fits just fine, some people say they have to go up a size, but for me an 8 would have been much too big. My special orthotics fit in them just fine. I have not logged a lot of miles in them yet, but so far I'm really enjoying them. Currently doing the Jeff Galloway marathon training program and I have a feeling these shoes will take me many miles down the road.

                    I did try and wear them to Boot Camp the other night, normally I wear my Vibram 5-Fingers. I hated it. I could feel one of my toes rubbing on the side, especially during foot drills and side shuffles. They seemed to be slipping around a lot then. After about 20 minutes I decided to just go barefoot.

                      I've been wearing these shoes for about 2 years and have not had a single leg injury, as I have had in the past before I found these shoes. No more achilles pain, no more planter fasciatis. Great shoes.

                        Was looking for a more minimal shoe without losing support. Came upon these shoes and realized I've been dying for a shoe that fits so well! I have a narrow foot but size 11. My first 20 miler in these shoes, I did not have black toenails or blisters and wasn't constantly retying to get a better fit. They are also lightweight and fast. I have bad pronation and this is my first neutral shoe (always went with stability) but I have an orthotic. So far so good!

                        Very lightweight shoe, with great traction. I feel that there could be more cushion and arch support, I would suggest buying an insert with this shoe.

                          I loved this model, but wasn't the perfect fit for me. Mizuno's do run small so I made sure to order the next half-size up. This helped with length, but ultimately the width of the shoe was what made me return them. While I wear size B in width, I found this model to be slightly narrower than other brands/models. So buyer beware - if you have an average width foot but may lean more towards wide then narrow you might want to reconsider!

                          These shoes are great! They feel already broken in when I put them on and are really light. I stopped at the 10's and I am glad I came back to the 13's. I have always found the WR to be less cushioned which I like a lot because cushioned shoes are heavier and I feel I can run farther with light shoes. If you are looking for more support/ cushioning try the Mizunos for stability.

                          I now have a major heel problem. I ignored the pain in my heel from running in these shoes.

                          Oh no, they did it again. I only like about every third Wave Rider version. This shoe is hard and flat. It feels like it has already been worn out. If I had wanted racing flats, that's what I would have ordered. Notice the weight difference between the 12's (11.? oz) and the 13's (8.6 oz). From what I can tell, that was all cushioning. I have only run in them once and will give them another chance, but I am not encouraged. New shoes should feel better than that. I wish I had ordered more 12's while they still had my size.
