    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3 Running Shoe:

    My second try at the Wave Prophecy. The first series were just too hard on my calves.
    These shoes seemed to fit my wide feet with no problem, even though they are not available in a wide fitting. However, the ankle area seemed to shift around on my ankle, even with the laces done up tight. This resulted in ankle rub/blisters within a few runs. For this reason, they got returned.
    The laces are about 4 miles long! How does a shoe manufacturer get something so basic, so very wrong?
    Not sure about all this springy/pogo stick description some of the other reviewers have mentioned, but I find the Wave Prophecy's are very hard going, with little in the way of cushioning (I weigh 173 lbs, so not a heavy footed runner)
    I also strongly agree with a previous poster, that these shoes have zero traction. Be warned if running on wet surfaces or metal man hole covers etc!
    A lot of money for very little return :(
    I'll pass again Mizuno.

        I am an avid runner and have been running for 20+ years. I am also a big fan of Mizuno. I have have had many pairs of both the Wave Creation and the previous versions of the Wave Prophecy. I really loved the Wave Prohecy 2. However, this update is horrible. I completely agree with a few of the other comments on here. The toe box is too large. Plus, the material does not allow for a good fit. Every time your foot strikes the ground and bends the upper area around the laces digs into your toes. I have blisters on the tops of my toes after one run. This has not happened with any of the previous versions of the Prophecy.

            Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3 Running Shoe:

            The previous versions of this shoe are all excellent. I've owned at least 2 pairs of each. I've also owned most of the Wave Creations and those are excellent. This shoe, however, is absolutely terrible. As has been mentioned, the toe area is too roomy. The top block of the shoe doesn't fit snugly around the ankle and bends/creases around the sides when you step. The shoe laces included are about 2 feet too long. I ran in these for a few weeks and then gave up and relegated them to dog walking shoes, where they are even insufficient for that. For some reason Roadrunner now considers these "Neutral" as opposed to "Neutral Plus". I think this change might have occurred with the last version. I don't know if that's relevant.

              Great shoe. I run about 15-20 miles a week (when I'm not struggling with my Achilles). I run with these and the Brooks Glycerin. I prefer the Prophecy 3 for my long runs and races. They seem to return a lot of energy when running...almost like running with pogo sticks on your feet. The Glycerin's win out for easy recovery runs. The Prophecy's don't quite have the same amount of cushioning as the Glycerin's (which are like running with mattresses on your feet). But if you're looking for a shoe with a great deal of cushioning while also being responsive, look no further.

                  Something is REALLY off with this update. I ordered all three colors right away based on my love of the 1st and 2nd versions. I was excited about the lower weight and other updates but quite frankly ... this shoe is NOT worth the money they are charging. The toebox is WAY off (as in huge) compared to the rest of the shoe. Traction is non-existent BTW unless you are on dry pavement. I'm returning my unworn versions and going back to the Prophecy 2's. Not happy nor impressed with the update - they basically feel like a loose fitting sockliner type shoe with a wave plate strapped to the bottom. :/

                            I have gone through 4 pairs of Prophecy 2 and absolutely love the shoe. Bought a pair of the new P3 and not happy. Something in the upper toe box isn't quite right and rubs painfully on my toes. I have tried stretching them and still can't get them broken in comfortably. Has rubbed the skin off my toes in part. Also, be careful on wet surfaces! The new new material on the sole is very slippery. Big disappointment.

                              I have multiple foot problems - high arch, bunions, wide fore foot, plantar fascitis. I have tried out >10 different running shoes to find one that works with all my various feet issues. This was my last shoe I tried & I LOVE IT!!!!! The cushion in the fore foot is wonderful, the arch support is great, and the toe box is wide enough for my wide foot & bunions. I couldn't be more happy with these shoes - I will buy them over & over!!

                                  Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3 Running Shoe:

                                  I run three times a week and I have been wearing the previous models of the Prophecy's. This newer model feels a lot different then the past. I would have to say that the Prophecy 3 is more flexible and feels softer than the previous ones. I honestly can't wait to see what Mizuno does to this shoe in the future

                                    Best update! I was so lucky to find my size at my local Road Runner Sports. They mentioned the new U4IC foam which is lighter and more resilient....very true. If you are looking for a shoe that is durable, cushioned, and allows you to run without thinking what is on your feet, Prophecy is the shoe.

                                      I used the shoes for about 2 days and I started having a pain in my arch. The arch support is a little stiff didnt fit well with my feet.
