Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 Running Shoe:

I am a midfoot striker and when running on pavement at around 3 miles every step feels rough and the impact seems to lessen and I can feel the shoe's sole imprinting on my midfoot. There seems to be less cushioning in the midfoot after a while and I can't imagine running longer distances in these shoes. I did run the trails with these shoes and I did not experience the rough impact.

    Love, love, love, love these shoes! Super duper comfortable. Helped me from twisting my ankle all the time. I used them for running, jogging, casually and everyday life. Only complaint is that they wore really fast. Both feet in the same area - around the toes. Going back for another pair though, so obviously that didn't bother me too much!! Just super comfortable and allows the foot to breath!

      I run, on the average, 5 days a week and have only been running in these shoes for 2 weeks. I had run in Mizuno shoes about 5 years ago before changing to a minimal shoe. So far I am very happy with the fit and performance. When I called in for help, the man I talked with was very helpful!

        I am on my 12th pair of these. I tend to pronate and this shoe is the only one I have found that does not feel like I have an arch support in my shoe, yet still keeps me from pronating when I run. I buy them a full size larger than my other shoes. I wish they came in better designs and colors.

        Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 Running Shoe:

        I have been running long distances 2-3 times a week for over 15 years. I have worn Mizunos for the last 4 or 5 years, replacing them at reasonable intervals. I bought my first pair of the Inspire 10's in April and by the end of June, my big toe popped out of the top of the shoe. I replaced them July 4th weekend, hesistantly. (I remembered Road Runners' guarantee.) I was back at the end of September with the same issue, got my money back and switched brands. I really want to go back to Mizunos because of the cushioning and otherwise great fit; however, until they fix the toe reinforcment issue on the Inspires, I won't buy another pair. I was REALLY disappointed that the 11's appear to be the same.

            This shoe costs much more at the store and at the other online outlets. I'm a 68 year old woman who walks at least 4 miles a day and these shoes make it possible to do so despite my arthritis.

            Not only did I save money; the shoes were delivered quickly.

              My podiatrist recommended this shoe when I was having trouble with plantar fasciitis - and it was a great recommendation. Very comfortable and supportive while providing good cushioning on heel strike. Plantar fasciitis has not returned.

              I have been running competitively for about two years now including road races at the 5k, 10k and half marathon distances. I am a 30-something female of average build and have found this shoe to be lightweight and good for short runs (5 miles or less) and for speedwork or treadmill workouts. This Inspire 10 was a disappointment when compared to the Inspire 9 because of significantly less cushioning. I am not able to wear it for runs 6 miles or longer. I am hopeful the Inspire 11 will be more like the 9 model.

                  I think the people who reviewed this shoe poorly were mostly people who didn't like the changes from the previous model. I need a seamless shoe because of some *beautiful* bunions and I have liked the Nike Free in various models, but needed more cushioning and stability when I upped my miles to train for half marathons this year. I found the Wave Inspire 10 to be comfortable right out of the box and very lightweight for the amount of bounce they have. I was glad to find the grey color online because the white and blue versions I found in my local running store were too much to look at for me! I took them on a 9 mile spin this morning and ordered a second pair to stockpile - an easy decision at $68.

                    These are my second pair of the Inspire 10. I bought the dark grey ones right when they came out. As others have stated about the tongue being short, this is true. I found the lacing on my first ones to hurt when running. However, I had to buy a new pair because my others had no life left in them so I purchased the red ones. The color is so beautiful and rich. I've never seen a running shoe this color before. Right out of the box I ran a 9 miler the other day and they felt great! Super comfy with great support and cushion. My previous Inspire 10's wore quickly so I"m hoping this won't happen to these. As stated with other reviewers, the tongue is short although with this pair I didn't have a problem and the lacing was comfortable too.

                        These shoes are the second pair I have owned. So comfortable and have been the only shoes that prevent my shin splints (i used to get aften wearing other shoe styles/brands).

                          I loved the colors and look of these shoes, but my feet went numb when I ran in them. I ran twice outdoors and once on the treadmill and my feet went numb every time. I ended up returning them and sticking with my beloved Nike Lunar Glides.

                            I fell in love with some Mizuno trail running shoes right out of the box, so I wanted to try some road running shoes hoping for a similar love affair. Well me and the Wave Inspire's couldn't be more wrong for each other.

                            I ordered my usual size of 10.5. The trail shoes in this size fit me perfectly. But these shoes felt almost a full size too big in the front of my big toe (but my little toe was right up against the wall of the shoe). I like a roomy toebox area, but this was too much. It was downright sloppy when I ran. And this extra room was affecting my gait b/c I started to feel knee pain about 1/2 mile into my run that didn't go away. I was disappointed b/c the price was right and these shoes were nice and light, but I can't run in a shoe that causes pain.

                              I am training for a marathon this fall. I was in love with the Mizuno Wave Inspire 8's, and I had a hard time finding a new shoe when my 8's wore out. At first, the 10 felt very different, but I found out that it was lighter but still had the stability. The upper is very breathable, and without the extra stitching and decorations, there are fewer places that the shoe can rub the wrong way. After doing a few long runs in the 10's, I bought four more pairs.

                                The Mizuno shoe I was wearing was no longer being made and the Road Runner helper line recommended this shoe. Only had 4 weeks to break in this new pair before running my marathon. No problem at all. I do use an insert which works great with these shoes. These shoes work well with my pronation and my plantar facitiis has improved. I will miss these shoes when no longer made.

                                      I've been running for approximately 20 years and have been wearing and loving the Inspire for approximately 8 years. It was the perfect shoe, until now! As soon as I saw them, I could SEE that it was no longer my 'tried and true', and it took less than a minute on my foot to KNOW that it was no longer the same shoe!! Horrible! I was so mad that I wrote Mizuno a letter, AND hunted down two of the last pairs of Inspire 9s I could find! Aweful

                                          I have been running in Mizuno Wave Inspires for two years. I'd normally get about 350 miles out of them before I would mostly move them out of the rotation. I was really excited about the updates to the 10-- lightweight, great looking shoe. I loved how they felt for the first 100 miles. Then they started rapidly wearing out, but I refused to believe it. A physical trainer finally looked at my shoes when I was having ankle and calf pain and said, "well, your shoes are totally worn out." So, a $100 dollar pair of shoes has turned into $300 thanks to being sent to the physiotherapist. I'm 100% done with Mizuno.

                                            I bought these post-Wave Inspire 9's and really love them! They are lighter and more narrow than the 9's, but that works great for me since I have a narrow foot. I can see how these might not be great for people with wider feet! So far, so good, though! I highly recommend.

                                              I purchased these b/c Mizuno stopped making my fave, the Elixirs. These are a bit heavier than what I am used to, but I decided to try it.

                                              The shoes, although being lightweight, have heavy footsteps. My husband, who can't hear anything, kept commenting on my steps being so loud. These shoes are okay. They are cushier than what I am used to running in, and apparently louder than any other of my shoes, so I will probably just use them for walks or gym trips. I will keep on my search for shoes that compare to the Elixirs. Please bring them back, Mizuno!

                                                I'm surprised these are rated so low, I like them a lot. My only complaint (and reason for subtracting a star) is the tongue is a little too short so the laces go above them. This only happens on my right shoe for me and since I do anchor lacing the laces don't touch my foot and I've never felt them while running. I recently ran a half marathon PR in these! It seems some people are unhappy with the arch support. I have the custom molded inserts from RRS and do not have any support complaints. I have narrow heels and a wide toe box and I haven't had any issues. The heel is definitely a lower profile than the 9 but once I wore them in a little I think the inner padding on the heel depressed some and they don't feel like they're slipping anymore.

                                                  I bought these because my usual Mizuno Wave Riders are not made anymore. Wanted to give them a try and loved the blue color. I wore these once to run, and the plastic that surrounds the laces rubbed a blister on my left toe next to the little toe. Very sore and uncomfortable. Decided to wait and give it another try, lacing them looser and wearing thicker socks. SO PAINFUL was that plastic piece that I ran back home and changed them to go finish my run. Hate these shoes and sending them back. That plastic piece is on another new pair of Mizuno's I ordered but don't seem to "DIG IN" to my foot like these.

                                                  I have loved the Inspire series for years, and was SO disappointed in the 10's. They took a good shoe and ruined it. The tongue is too short, so when the laces are tied, there is too much pressure across the top of the foot. They were so uncomfortable, I couldn't think of anything else on my run. I changed socks, and tried to redo the laces, but they wouldn't work no matter what I did. Bad update, Mizuno!
