      Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Hitogami Running Shoe:

      Feels light fast and lower than the 9 mm drop, and has a surprisingly good and sufficient cushion in the forefoot. Just ran the Steamtown Marathon in them and they were great. Have run previous marathons in the Saucony Hurricane, Brooks Ravenna and Mizuno Sayonara. Hitogami is the best shoe I have run in.

        Tried these shoes out due to the good reviews and glad with the result so far. Forefoot running shoe, very light and comfortable with just the right amount of cushioning....nice, stable feel overall. Have not owned long enough to comment on durability.

          The Hitogami is deceptive, in a good way

          Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Hitogami Running Shoe:

          I gave the Hitogami a try based on the positive reviews at RRS and the various review blogs. This is one comfortable shoe! Within the first two weeks of owning it, I PR'd a tough local 10K race & my legs felt incredibly good after. I'm using the shoe for tempo, track work, & race days, and can see it being a great half-maration shoe. It's not the lightest shoe out there, and I see it more as a hybrid between a race flat & lightweight trainer. It's softer underfoot & more flexible than the Adios 2 or GoMeb Speed 2. It fits a great need in my rotation for faster training days, as the effort and transition feel so smooth. I'm giving it 4 stars since there is moderate wear on the sole after ~50 miles and I'm not sure it will be the most durable shoe.

            I am a half marathoner, I only ran in New Balance and I was looking for something new and stumbled upon the Mizuno Wave Hitogami and boy am I glad I decided to give these a try they are very comfortable super light weight, and awesome to run in, they are a good racing flat as well as racing trainer. Great for long distances and just overall great shoe and for the price of the shoe! Oh man it's practically a steal and I highly recommend these to anyone who is considering trying these shoes out. I run about 10 miles a day and these are holding up great. Did I mention I have 2 pairs of these! That's how awesome these shoes are.

            Run 50+ miles and working toward boston in April. Love the feel of the shoe. Light but just the right amount of support. Bought a second pair recently to break in for the marathon and they feel great. Really liked the Sayonara but like Hitagami better.

              Absolutely love this shoe. Everything from the responsive U4IC sole and "just right" toe box, to the artistic exterior of the shoe. I have been wearing the New Balance 1400V2 a lot lately but wanted to give this shoe a shot because of some of the on-line reviews that I have seen. I pulled the shoes out of the box, put them on, and ran six miles in them the first day. No fatigue, no break-in period, no complaints. These shoes make me look forward to wearing them on a run. I run/train primarily in the Saucony Type A5/6, Adidas Takumi Sen, and New Balance 1400V2/1600 but these shoes have reminded me about what Mizuno can bring to the table. Big fan of the Hitogami.
