Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Universe 5 Racing Shoe:
I'm a mixed distance forefoot-only runner, and these are ready to respond no matter which flat ground I tread. These are easy to forget they're there. The impact is sufficiently dampened on concrete and road. These are not optimized for mixed dirt and rocky terrain, even the instructions warn against using in these areas. If you must go in dirt, run in adequate light to read what's ahead and avoid any jagged objects.
I'm a forefoot-only runner and these are fantastic, the colors are very "techy" and match the amount of tech put into making these, however, I still stand by choosing shoes on the technology, not the color.
Using these in the winter, even though the upper part is mostly mesh, my feet don't feel chilly. I have been using these since October 2013, they still feel great. I run almost daily averaging 45 min.
My previous shoes are the Brooks Mach 14 Spikeless and still use for more rocky terrain or upcoming obstacle races.
