Overall nice shoe. Broke down way too soon (5 months) By 5th month started with ankle and thigh/hip pain. I am NOT a high mileage runner by any means. I have always loved Mizuno, I wish they would jack up the cushioning though. These shoes also started to rip on the top of the toe box where the laces begin.

This is the shoe I'd been wishing Mizuno would make. I train in the Wave Riders and for me this makes a perfect racing (marathon) shoe. Lighter than the Rider and Maverick, but with a touch of stability. Cushioning feels substantial to me compared to other shoes in this category.

I think these might be the best shoes I've ever had. The fit is outstanding and the arch support is great. I'm on the smaller side and overpronate and these are just the right amount of support for me. Fabulous shoe!

This shoe is no way replaces the Maverick, its hard on the heel and hurts the lateral part of the knees. I loved the Mavericks, never had a problem. The Elixir is a big disappointment and not a replacement.

Almost a full once ligher than the Maverick 4! May not be enough for longer runs, but great for fazter paced farlek training or definirely a solid option for racing, Doubt it will work for those over 175 lbs. as forefoot cushioning feels minimal.
