Everything for everybody

By Anonymous

from Boulder, CO

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

As Mizuno condenses the number of styles available and focuses on several strong core shoes, the Sayonara will surely be one that shines. There is a light amount of pronation support provided by the lengthening of the wave plate and increased ground contact under the arch (for those coming off of the Precision more supportive, for those coming from Elixir, about equal). When I travel and need to use only one shoe for my tempos and easy runs alike, the Sayonara has replaced the Elixir as being "that shoe." It's ideal for someone looking to get a lighter shoe for a marathon, half, or 10k without having to go all the way to a racing flat.

light and responsive

By danieltapia012

from Monterey, CA

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

got my first pair a month ago and I love them. Do not recommend for long runs but anything under an hour is great. The shoe is like a racing flat but with more support. Thus, light, fast, and responsive, and with just enough cushion.

Light as a feather

By WorkOut830

from Montgomery, AL, United States

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

I decided to order this shoe because I've worn Mizuno before. I like the way they fit my feet, but I decided this time to order a half size up. The shoes still fit good. They are very nice. I ran three laps and my feet felt great! The shoe is good looking too. I ordered the shoe in white, it has an aqua color sole.

Best Mizuno Shoe!

By annlpcky

from Charlotte, NC, United States

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

I have always had the wave riders until I decided to make the decision to give the Wave Sayonara's a shot, and I must say these have been by far my favorite Mizuno shoes yet. The Wave Sayonara's had such an amazing feel from the first time I put them on and provided al the support and cushion I needed. Thank you Mizuno for making such a phenomenal shoe!

I have flat feet and I love these shoes

By nanarunner1

from montreal, qc

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

I am a sprinter and I needed a light trainer. I have run with the Nexus and the Inspires, and tried the Sayonara's because I have flat feet. They are now my favourite all-time shoe (apart from my spikes). The fact that they are low to the ground gives me more stability, and their heel drop allows me to forefoot strike easily without straining my Achilles tendon.

Love

By Blueskyez

from Eugene, OR, United States

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

I'm having a love affair with these shoes. I keep thinking that I will need to alternate with a more substantial shoe but every time I try I just want to get these back on. They take awhile to break in for me so I start out a new pair with some walking around but after that wiith every run I love them even more. These are the first shoes I've ever had that don't get in my way when I run. They let me be me. They are stable, low to the ground and provide feedback with every stride. Consequently they don't promote bad form which is improving my running. The U4ric is amazing, it's light yet I feel fully protected. Please don't change a thing....except more colors choices.

Great Shoes!

By jan1983

from Michigan

Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

I have loved these shoes so much! They are so comfortable, light weight and stylish. The only down side is after not even a year the mess near my pinky toe on both shoes has worn out and I have holes in both shoes. I'm thinking of buying another pair I have liked them so much but that it expensive to replace shoes that aren't wearable any longer after such a short period of time.

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

    Running low mileage, coming back to running after having kids. Loving this flexible shoe. I am a midfoot striker, and this gives me great flexibility in the forefoot area. I like the feel of the whole thing. Not a huge heel cushion, so low heel drop too.

    I love these shoes! However...

    By ashleynicole

    from Seattle, WA, United States

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

    I bought these after running consistently in Precision 13s. I LOVE THE PRECISION 13 and they are still my favorite to date! The Sayonara was recommended over and over as a good replacement, so I finally broke down and bought a pair. I loved the feel, the fit, the weight, everything! However, I supinate slightly when I run. Because of the forefoot design includes the striped overlay, it creates an unequal amount of tension on the sides of the shoe, causing the forefoot to fall apart easily. I don't believe this would be an issue for anyone except us rare supinators out there, but it did create large holes in the sides of the show in under 100 miles of wear. Bummer. Other than that, it's a decent trainer!

    Great marathon training shoe

    By EmmaM

    from Boston, MA, United States

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

    I have been an asics loyalist for years, but towards the end of my longer runs, my feet started to feel extremely heavy. I was looking for a lighter shoe to train in for my upcoming marathon, and a sales associate recommended I try the Sayonara 2's. Not only have they been an extremely lightweight trainer, they have a fair amount of support given their weight. I have noticed my performance improve significantly since I switched to these shoes. They do seem to be a bit on the narrower side, but I don't mind that, as I have pretty narrow feet. They have also held up very well to all of the wear that I have put them through during marathon training. I do not notice any of the quality issues that other reviewers have pointed out. My only word of caution would be to transition gradually into these shoes. I went from a very supportive, cushioned shoe to these and started to develop Achilles pain a few weeks after I transitioned, but it's likely that it had to do more with my increasing mileage than the shoes themselves.

    Perfection

    By skinnychickblog

    from Monterey, CA, United States

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

    On my second pair of these and love these even more. If you're a fan of the Wave Rider, I think you will dig these. They are a bit on the firm/stability side which are perfect for any distances. They have a bit extra room in the toe box and below the ankle design which I LOVE. Great job Mizuno!

    Perfect for me!

    By Melva

    from Bucks County, PA

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

    I have serious bunion issues. Wave Sayonara 2 is the most comfortable sneaker I have worn in a very, very long time. Last purchased the Wave Rider, which were better than Brooks and Asics - but doesn't compare to the comfort of the Wave Sayonara 2. They feature a round stitching design on topside of toe box that I think makes for a comfortable fit around my bunion. Hope they never change this model in any way - which is a mistake made by manufacturers all the time. Plan to buy several more pairs because manufacturers ALWAYS change

    Great shoe, great brand

    By fkread

    from Covington, KY, United States

    Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

    I was brought into the Mizuno fold when I received a pair of Wave Riders from mapmyrun. I had been looking for a perfect fit since college. Since that pair of Riders, I have bought a second pair. I purchased the Sayonara as a supplement to marathon training, but ended up running the Flying Pig in them. Great shoe. My only knock is that at 300 miles they are dead. That is probably to be expected from a lighter shoe (I got 500 mi from the 1st Riders). I purchased a second pair today. They are a great training shoe and I have logged many of my long training runs in them. Since that 1st pair of Mizunos, I have tried Nike Zoom 7 (returned after 3 miles) and Brooks Glycerin 11 (gave away to a student after 100 miles). I am 6' 170 lbs. I'm a heel striker and moderate foot strike -- I will continue to use both the Sayonara and the Wave Rider, but may attempt another Mizuno model in the future.

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

      I LOVED the Wave Elixir, and was devastated when it was discontinued. I was not crazy about the first iteration of the Sayonara, and ended up switching to the Wave Rider. I like this version a bit better -- the upper is not quite as stiff. That said, there really isn't a lot of impact damping in these shoes. They are fine up to about a half marathon distance, and then I end up with foot and ankle pain. Like it as a training shoe, but can't imagine running a marathon in them.

      Great Shoe

      By bigguypo

      from Sioux Falls, SD, United States

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

      The Nike Pegasus has been my go to shoe for 29 yrs. As of late they have had more sizing problems then ever. ("D" too narrow in toe box) So, on the suggestion of my running shoe guru at Duluth Running I tried the Sayonara and I LOVE them. A great light shoe, good for tempo runs and races. Good width in the toe box and super comfortable. I can't resist saying, ergo I have said Sayonara to favorite shoe of 29 years the Pegasus

      Purchasing my third pair of these shoes. They are a great shoe for those that used to love the Elixir 5s (at least for me). Trained over 600 miles last year between two pair and starting a third pair now while I retire another. No problems with treads falling off for me.

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

      Just bought my third pair today. I put over 700 miles on my first pair and over 800 miles on my second pair and have had no issues with durability. Mostly the reason I am getting a new pair is that the spring in them is beginning to fade and I have a race coming up soon. Otherwise i could probably squeeze another fifty to a hundred miles out of them. I use these shoes for everything from 400m repeats to 20+ mile long runs and half marathon races and they have never let me down!

      I guess I am lucky as I have run in these for my long runs and have put on about 250 miles total.  I have ran on treadmill, concrete, track, asphalt and even with light snow on the ground.  No issues and I felt they had much better grip than my Saucony.  No issues with the tread delaminating either.    Wish the toe box was slightly larger.

      from Plainfield, IN, United States

      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2 Running Shoe:

      Like some of the other reviewers, I have worn Mizunos for a while. Most recently a few models of the Precision but also Rider and Creation. The ride is nice on the Sayonara and the shoe is light, but they wore much much faster than other models. I'm pretty tough on the sole so it was only a moderate surprise that the heal burned through quickly. The real surprise is that the upper developed holes in a couple of places which has never happened before. While I will bite the bullet and pay the price for good shoes I can't afford to do it as frequently as these would require. I will probably try the Riders again and see if they hold up better.
