    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Paradox 3 Running Shoe:

    I was very disappointed when the Alchemy was discontinued. The Paradox1 which was to replace the Alchemy but had no support and left my feet killing me. I run on average 7 to 8 miles 5 days a week and one to 2, 10 mile runs a month. After seeing a review on the Paradox 2 being stiffer and heavier than Paradox 1, I thought maybe Mizuno heard my and other runners complaints and changed the Paradox to make it more like the Alchemy and they did.

        Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Paradox 3 Running Shoe:

        RRS fit tip is ONCE AGAIN wrong. They say size up 1/2 size on almost everything across the board, and that's just not true. This shoe runs at least 1/2 size large. Due to that, this shoe seemed a little sloppy/clunky; but to be fair, I was given the incorrect sizing info by rrs. Had to return them due to this. I did notice that much like most Mizuno shoes I have tried in the past, the forefoot feels quite firm. You might say simply lacking any forefoot cushioning. I understand the Mizuno wave plate concept, and the heel to toe transition for this shoe, but I still like some forefoot cushioning. I like responsiveness, and some firmness and support, but not to the point that most Mizuno shoes go to. With the correct size, and a good insole, this shoe could work for me, but my first impression was that it seemed a little on the clunky side, and lacking in forefoot cushioning.

        • Sizing:
        • Feels half size too big
