    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 6 Running Shoe:

    These shoes are a dream. It is amazing how light they are. I was suprised about how cushioned they were for a race shoe. If training for a race, I do not recommend wearing them for everyday long runs..perhaps no more than 4 or 5 miles everyday because they lack the stability and cushioning of a training shoe. But these are the perfect race shoe.

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 6 Running Shoe:

      I do Triathlons for fun and have never met a running shoe that I could wear for my entire run the first day I put them on. Nor have I met a running shoe that didn't somehow make some part of me ache. The lower heel profile allows for a more fluid and natural leg moment as well as foot impact. The shoe does not push your pelvis forward like many running shoes can due to heel height. Ergonomically speaking, its a huge improvement while still maintaining a real Shoe. I knew they were going to be great when I put them on and my posture was the same as if I had been in my bare feet. Love these shoes!

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 6 Running Shoe:

      This was my first venture into Mizuno a few months ago when I decided I needed a turquoise colored shoe (I know, I know, don't buy a shoe based on color!) but the only one I could find that offered some pronation control was this one!

      It was significantly lighter than what I had been using for years (Asics 21XX series) so I figured I would use this for short runs and races since it's listed as "performance stability". It has been perfect for that.

      This shoe is incredibly light and responsive and traction is great. Super breathable upper... I can actually feel the wind go through them sometimes!

      No issues at all and my experience with this is what led me to look at the Inspire 8's for my next trainer!

      I took them right out of the box and went on a 5 mile hilly run in the rain this morning. Extreme light weight and still provided great traction up and down wet hills for me. I've always been a nike person, but I am happy I gave mizuno a try. What a positive experience and I'm thinking taking them to my marathon with me in december.

          Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 6 Running Shoe:

          I never thought I'd be able to wear a performance shoe: I'm 5'5", 165lbs, and I overpronate. This shoe allows my foot to toe-off in a straight line from heel to toe. All of my other "corrective" shoes roll on the outside of my foot in an arc. After pampering a stress fracture in my right foot for two months I wore it in a road race. I thought I was taking it easy, but I beat last years time. Love, love, love this shoe!

                  I have been true to the wave creations for years and decided to give these a go. It took some getting used to the first week because they are extremely light weight and require your legs to work. I just finished my first 1/2 marathon in them and have nothing but good things to report!

                      Run about 20 miles a week so very light, awesome colors!! Very week in the cushioning department, would recommend the next version to have more cushioning for flat footed runners.

                        Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Elixir 6 Running Shoe:

                        I have had many different shoes that I've run in, but the Elixir 6 Mizuno is a really nice, lightweight shoe. I compared it to my last pair and noticed a big difference when running in them. I could hardly tell I was wearing shoes! This is a great choice and I just might go back and get another pair. Keep up the great work guys!
