Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Running Shoe:

I have about 50 miles on these. I'm guessing they are better and some issues from the 17s were addressed. However, I stocked up on 16s and went right into the 18s. I have not had any issues with 18s. They have good cushion for neutral shoes. Having said that, they do have significantly more room in the toe box than the 16s. They do not have the good snug fit the 16s have.

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Running Shoe:

Have had many great trainers and racing flats from Mizuno and was excited to be getting back into a pair after a bad experience with Nike. Mizuno sure does deliver in Wave Runner 18 and I was not disappointed. The sneaker's performance remains consistent from the first mile to your last mile. I could see the Wave Runner 18 being a good marathon day sneaker for both the novice and heavier runners.

Great Shoe, but make sure to size it properly

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Running Shoe:

I've been running in these for years and love them. If you use an orthotic, like me, you may need to get them a half size larger and a double width for a proper fit.

My only complaint is the laces. They seem to have shortened them quite a bit and you can barely tie them. Plan to replace them.

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Running Shoe:

    This is the second time I have run in Wave Rider running shoes. I love this edition of the shoe. It is very similar if not better to the 16 edition. I did not try the 17 edition. This shoe has great heel to toe transition and feels resposive on road surfaces, tracks, and treadmills. I feel fast in these shoes. I have narrow feet, so I like that the toe box is narrow and my heel stays firmly in place. Many of the shoes I have tried in the last few years have to wide of a toe box and I would have a lot of heel slippage. The cushion in the shoe is also great. I have not had any injuries so far in these shoes. I am 5'6" and 130lbs. I run about 10-15 miles a week. My favorite distance to train for is 5k but I do run 10k, 10mile and half maratons on occasion. I try to run below 7 minute miles. I highly recommend this shoe.

      Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Running Shoe:

      I've been alternating two pairs of these for about 5 months now and I really like them. They have the best combination of fit, cushioning and weight I've found in any of the current cushioned shoes that I've tried. The thing I like best about them is that the cushioning is substantial but firm. I don't feel like my heel is hitting the pavement, which is why I stopped running in the Asics cushioned shoes - they were just too soft. I use them primarily for training but race in them also as they feel very light. If the degree of cushioning matters to you, check these out.

      Interesting Trainer

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Running Shoe:

      I'm returning these shoes because the toe-box is small on the inside of the foot, such that my big toes rub the shoe material. Thought I'd share in case others were trying this brand for the first time too.

      The shoe itself is a bit firmer than the Asics I've been running in most frequently, but they aren't inflexible like the Brooks Ghost. The shoe feels light and looks sharp.
