    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Ascend 8 Trail Running Shoe:

    I run nearly everyday. Approx 50-60 mpw. Pronate on my right foot. Will use neutral, support, lightweight and even minimal shoes. Depends on the day and/or run.
    Also have a very long (10-10.5 women's) and very narrow foot (AA). Basically a natural set of skis. Having said this, these shoes fit me well with thicker socks. If you have a wide foot, like most Mizunos, these may not be for you.
    Cons: can be heavy. Especially when wet. Can have a more firm ride yet does cushion impact from the ground well. Can tend to pull on my Achilles' tendon at times. Especially out of the box.

      This is a solid shoe and as others have indicated fits like a glove. I rotate this shoe with ones fro ASICS and Adidas and I'm a convert now to Mizuno. I am 5'3", 130 lbs. and run approximately 25 miles a week. I run on trails, pavement, and beaches and this shoe is remarkable on all surfaces.

          Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Ascend 8 Trail Running Shoe:

          These are the perfect running shoes. I have always had an extremely high arch in my foot, and it is near impossible to find a good running shoe to support my arch. I have been using wave ascend shoes since I was in high school athletics, and the few times I tried to find an alternative I always found myself coming right back to these. They are sturdy, comfortable, and not too heavy. If you aren't 100% satisfied with the shoes you're using and just feel like something isn't quite right, give these a try. You can't go wrong.

            Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Ascend 8 Trail Running Shoe:

            I prefer to run on pavement but some of our runs are on mixed surfaces. I'm a light striker so the podiatrist said I could use them on both surfaces which eliminates my having two types of shoes. My trail runs are usually gravel, dirt roads,trails along irrigation ditches, or groomed trails in a state park.

              I've worn the Ascend series since #4. This is the best so far. I was leery of the angled lacing when I first put it on, but it makes for an incredibly comfortable toe box and stable fit. The shoe is light, but my foot felt protected. My first run in them was 4.5 miles on a weird mix of icy, wet, rocky and pine needle covered trails. I always felt like the shoe held me well and was never sloppy or uncomfortable on my foot.

                I loved these shoes when I wore them the first few times but there was a hole that developed in the right toe after only 5 wears! Same thing happened to my friend who also has these shoes. I have been wearing Mizuno shoes for years, and they often develop holes in the toes--but not after five wears. Trail shoes should be durable and these are not...
