      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Ascend 5 Trail Running Shoe:

      I ordered this shoe through the APO system because I am currently deployed and when I received the shoe, there was no reason to "break the shoe in" I was able to lace up the shoe strings and run six miles... This is an excellent shoe and I plan to purchase an additional pair within the next few weeks..

      Both my husband and I have been Wave Ascend wearers for about two or three years now. I will not wear any other shoe. We run trails almost exclusively and these shoes really provide traction and adequate support for our feet.

            Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Ascend 5 Trail Running Shoe:

            I have found that Mizunos in general fit my feet the best. I run in Inspires and Elixirs. The sizing for me for all my Mizunos is a full size up from my street shoe size (I think it is b/c of my long toes). I run 30-50 miles/week. I have tried other trail shoes, and I always had problems getting the lacing right to feel comfortable and not have a "baggy" feeling so I can feel secure in my shoes, especially on trails. The uppers do not seem to be designed for a lot of water resistance, but that is why the shoe is so light. I try to running trails when it is too wet and muddy. So the Ascends are just perfectly great for me!

              Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Ascend 5 Trail Running Shoe:

              This is my third pair of ascends, and they have proven reliable on all counts. That's why I keep buying them. My running consists mostly of 5-6 mile runs, but I feel I could run for miles in these shoes. Just the right amount of cushioning without feeling "bouncy".
              My only complaint is that they do wear on the tread, wish they were a little more durable.

                I wore these shoes for the first time yesterday to my son's x-country race. Wow! The shoes fit like they were made for my feet - not a pinch, blister, rub, just pure comfort. I ordered a half size up from my normal size 8 as recommended.
