Fit issues


Background: 5 ft. 6, 118 pounds, 45-50 mpw average. I've worn the Wave Rider 17 in my last 2 marathons. Used to wear Mizuno Ronins on the treadmill and for shorter races, but the Ronins were discontinued for this shoe. I was hoping for a flexible, neutral, lightweight Mizuno with a lower heel height than the WR 17's that might work for 5Ks up to marathons. I've only taken them out a few times on the road for 3-5 milers, but so far they don't quite cut it for me. They are super lightweight, flexible, and responsive, but the upper doesn't have the glovelike fit I was expecting. They are slightly baggy in the heel and midfoot but tighter over the toes. I bought them in my usual Mizuno size and the length is fine; it's the overlays around the eyelets that are the culprit. I'll probably keep them as I like the ride but I won't buy another pair.




Great Shoe


Absolutely love these shoes. I was comfortable with the Precision and was disappointed when they were replaced with the Sayonara which I didn't like as soon I tried them on--too narrow in the toe box. I tried on the Hitogami and was immediately sold. They are comfortable and light weight--feel so good running in them. I already ordered my second pair in the new green color. That is how much I like them and I have only had my first pair less than 2 months.

Love these shoes


Love these shoes. Needed a lightweight new pair for a summer of mid-distance training and gave these a try. They're light but supportive, I barely realize they're there. Less flexible than Nike Free's but more support/seriousness in them. I fear that they'll breakdown kinda quickly, but I'll probably just re-order if that happens. They're great 3 months in, really pleased.

Love this shoe!!


Wanted A light weight shoe with neutral pronation. Was in the precisions then they dropped that line to the new Sianoras which I do not like. Gave these a try since I had nothing loose. Love them! Feel so soft with each step. The Sianoras were stiff and not cushy and my big toe rubbed the front. I will wear the Hitogami in Boston!!

In Love!


Love these shoes! I ran in the Wave Sayonaras but was having fit issues and then found these and I'm in love! I log a lot of miles and have run a half marathon and a marathon in these and they are awesome! They are light and fast but also have a surprisingly amount of support for their thin profile. Highly recommend!

Too narrow


I liked the cushion and lightweight of these shoes, but they were way too narrow on my feet. I returned them, and got a larger size because it said to go a 1/2 size up, but I felt they were overall too small. Hopefully, a larger size will be better.

Rock star


Definately buying another pair


I just purchased these shoes and went out for a 9 mile run in them and they were awesome. They are very light weight but offer a good amount of support. I hope they come out with a few more colors but either way I am going to purchase another pair. Love them!

Sweet shoes


These shoes are pretty soild. Being a varsity highschool runner, and running an average of 6 miles five times a week and workouts they're awesome. I love them. I just wish they had more cushioning. Recommended shows!

Light and happy running shoe!


Love the shoe! Have been on some good road runs in this shoe. Plenty of room for my orthotics. I just wonder how the tread will hold up over time.

Tri running!

Great feeling, responsive shoe!


Shoe feels great for tempo or interval runs. They feel light and quick. Fit is snug, feels faster but supportive at the same time.

Race shoe that can be worn every d


I use these with orthotics for every day wear but can also see how they would work very well for racing (running or walking)

Favorite Shoe


The first time I wore these shoes I ran 9 miles and I loved them, no blisters, no pain and super comfortable. They are lightweight and flexible. I wore these shoes to train for a half marathon and then wore them in the half marathon but I have also worn them on trail runs and beach runs and they give great support and stability.
