Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris Running Shoe:

I started in traditional shoes worked my way down to Asics Excel 33, Asics Gel Lyte 33. Then I took two private session in Chi Running and ran some with New Balance Trail with and without inserts until I built my mileage. Then I run in these first thing. Amazing cushioning considering the design. Mizuno is smart to place the wave plate in the forefoot. I already have 200 miles on them, and almost all of the wear is in the softer areas of the forefoot. With just a slight tweak they could more durable. Don't just run in them thinking they will magically fix your mechanics. Take the time and process to improve your running form and work gradually toward these shoes. In the end, you will love them.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris Running Shoe:

Very comfortable but odd-fitting shoe. Feels like a pair of diving fins--snug around the heel with a big, wide-splayed toe box. I'm a true 9 and had to return for an 8.5. Wonderfully cool and comfortable, but with all that room up front a certain amount of friction is inevitable, so I cap my distance in them at about 10 miles. I especially enjoy them for a day or two after a long run or race (when my toes are feeling beat up and want to recover). Almost like running barefoot (0 drop, but just enough cushion). I have about 70 miles on them, and I don't think they will prove very durable. Nice shoe to have in the mix, but not a workhorse. I have other Mizunos I've done over 1000 miles in, and my guess is that these will be done around 300 miles.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris Running Shoe:

This is a fantastic running shoe. Makes me look forward to my next run. A 63 year old marathoner, my next marathon will be in these. Feel like I can run forever in them. Very soft and light with plenty of room up front for toes to splay. The cons: the seam behind the big toe rubs slightly and will cause a blister if I run without socks ( which is my preference); I suspect they will wear out relatively fast. But the pros so outweigh the cons.

        Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris Running Shoe:

        I don't have a lot of miles on these so far, but they are what I was looking for.

        So what was I looking for....Slightly more impact cushioning than the Vibram 5 fingers I've been wearing for the last 4 yrs. The 5fingers I love for trail (Tough Mudders) and crossfit. And even though its doable not as comfortable for pavement running.

        IMO, the Mizunos are great. They are similar to what I'm used to but with a little more sole cushioning to take the edge off.

          Shoe is extremely comfortable and lightweight. The toe box is massive, which is great while running for me. I think I would've been better suited with a 12.5 instead of a 13, but I will have to wait until I get back to the states. They dry extremely fast. I found this out running in a light "sprinkle" that turned into a downpour. So far, so good.....

              Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris Running Shoe:

              Pro -- by far the most comfortable "minimalist light" (i.e., low to no drop, light weight, cushioned) I've run in.

              Cons -- I've run three times in the Cursoris. There was significant wear on the outsole after the first run. This afternoon I found pebbles stuck deep in the exposed midsole material. Even the rubber portion of the outsole is showing significant wear at 25 miles.

              I doubt that I'll get anywhere near 200 miles from these shoes.

              If you are interested in this type of shoe -- low to no drop, lightweight and cushioned -- you would do better with another option unless you have deep pockets.

                        I have always wanted to move down to a zero drop shoe, but none ones I have tried on in the past felt cushioned enough our comfortable. This shoe still uses Mizuno's Wave plate technology which is hidden in the forefoot of this Evo shoe. It felt like a glove because the fit in the forefoot gave me the space for my toes to naturally land when mid-foot striking and was by far the most responsive, yet cushioned zero drop shoe I have ever tried on....and then bought!!!

                          In terms of a lower profile shoe, this is the BEST one that I've ever tried. The best features are the Wave technology (cushioning and energy return) located in the midfoot of the shoe as well as the wider toebox, designed for very natural movement.

                          This is a midfoot style shoe but it feels like it has the cushion and support of a typical road shoe! I love it. For me, it runs a half size larger than my previous Mizuno's.

                            The EVO Cursoris is an amazing new offering from Mizuno. A zero drop shoe that is designed for the midfoot runner. The wider toe box allows for my toes to properly splay out and work to stabilize and propel me forward. I love the Wave plate in the midfoot, it gives me the responsive feel that I have come to love from my other Mizuno running shoes.

                            Highly recommended.

                            These are probably the best low to zero-drop shoes I've had. I've been wearing Newtons, innov8, Altras, and various racing flats from Asics, but this one takes the cake. They have excellent cushioning and very comfortable and breathable upper. I have about 300 miles on them so far, and the two complaints I have are with the sizing (runs really big- compared to my Wave Ronin 3, looks to be about 3/4in longer at size 9 but easy fix, order half to full size smaller) and the forefoot durability. Maybe I can't complain too much about the durability since I've already got 300 miles and they're still wearable, but since there is a good amount of exposed foam on the outsole, there is significant wear in some of the forefoot areas. I might try putting on a layer of shoe goo, if that doesnt work then I might be in the market for another pair of these.

                            I think these can be worn by a wide range of folks, not just those experienced with zero drop or minimalist shoes.

                            Mizuno did an outstanding job with these and I'm looking forward to future iterations as well as trying out the Levitas.

                              Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris Running Shoe:

                              Got them in the mail on Friday, but had to exchange them. With the wider forefoot, I was swimming in the size 11. I had worn 11's in all my old Mizunos, but I had to size down to 10-1/2 in these.

                              The 10-1/2s felt great & I'm doing my 1st run in them today.
