This is my First (1st) Pair of MIZUNO Running and or Trail Shoes purchased on September 21st of 2016 with an "ON-LINE" Retailer. Currently, I RUN/WALK/HIKE over Twenty-Four (24) Miles per Week-Every Week- Year Round and have since May of 2012! I serve on the NON-PAID 'Research Community' of SALOMON Shoes (a.k.a., ADIDAS/SALOMON) of AMER SPORTS in FINLAND. Over the next month, I will substitute 'LOCK-LACES' for the standard Shoe Laces supplied by MIZUNO (JAPAN)! These Highly REFLECTIVE and Circular Shoe Laces will not only enhance the Appearance of the TRAIL SHOES, but ensure increased VISIBILITY at NIGHT or in LOW-LIGHT Running situations! I will Cut them to the exact Length appropriate for the TRAIL SHOE! The MIZUNO "WAVE KAZANs" appear (i) Well-Made and (ii) Sturdy and were Manufactured in CHINA as per the Label on the Tongue. At a WEIGHT per TRAIL Running Shoe of 09.5 Ounces (269 Grams)- the TRAIL Shoes are 01.1 Ounces (32 Grams) LIGHTER than my existing FRENCH SALOMON X-SCREAM 3D's at 10.6 Ounces (301 Grams); and are therefore LIGHT for a TECHNICAL TRAIL RUNNING SHOE!! The FRENCH SALOMONs' are a "LIGHT TRAIL and/or "CITY TRAIL" Running Shoe. The FIT is SECURE for me and also COMFORTABLE! The ARCH SUPPORT is MEDIUM, at best!

Excellent trail shoe for racing
Been a trail runner for 30 years including races up to 50 miles. This is really an excellent shoe. Light enough but still has enough cushioning in the sole for traprock (sharp cut basalt annoying rocks). The sole material is soft enough to really grip and this makes a big difference in wet conditions. Enough bumper in the front for some toe protection without adding a lot of weight. Wish I had these back in the day when I was actually fast.
Flexible, light, great traction but...
I love Mizuno shoes so I jumped on that one knowing it was a stability shoe.
iIt's got great traction and is very lightweight and flexible. On the downside I am noticing that it sinks around the inside of the heels. It's kind of problematic for a shoe that is marked by RR as a stability shoe. So I'm not sure it's a shoe for people who overpronate a lot.

Great Trail / Snow Shoe
Really great shoe put on 30 miles on these because of Snow and trails that I run on. Was really impressed with how much cushion it had once I hit the roughest patches of trails. It's also a great road shoe as well. It adapts quickly from one surface to the next.

Excellent Trail Shoe
Excellent trail shoe. I wear 10.5 in Brooks Adrenaline GTS and RR fit expert recommended I get a 10.5 in this shoe as well. I am glad I did.
Run using these a couple of times now. Excellent support and comfort. Very tough sole, u don't feel the rocks if u land on them.
Very light and flexible trail shoe!
Just did Pikes Peak Ascent in these over rough, rocky terrain and they were very comfortable with good traction and support throughout--great shoe.
I would buy product again. Recommended.
Former road runner turned trail runner here. This pair is seeing light duty on easy trails. I had been wearing Wave Inspires (love 9) for road up 'til now. Fit and comfort is the same as my Inspires. Everything you'd expect from a Mizuno product. I'd definitely recommend.
I would buy racing type too
Light and flexible trail shoe ever!!
Use on all dirt trails
