Love the fit. Just the right amount of cushion - no too much, not too little.
My go-to all around running shoe, from short training runs to a full marathon.

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 Running Shoe:

    I run about 40 miles per week and weigh around 190. I've run in the last several versions of the Inspire and the last two (10 and 11)are my least favorite of the two. The wave plate on the 11 is the same as the 10 and if you're a mid-foot striker, the heal feels really clunky and the transition is poor. The previous wave plate on the 8 and 9 extended a few inches beyond the middle part of the shoe between the heal and forefoot, and IMO made for a lot smoother ride. Additionally, the forefoot cushioning in the 11 (and especially the 10) is lacking. Oddly, the inspire went back to a higher heal to toe drop in the 11, after reducing it in the 9 and 10. Please Mizuno, bring back the old wave plate and increase the forefoot cushioning, and reduce the heel to toe ration. Come to think of it, just recreate the 9.

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 Running Shoe:

    I've run in every model of the Inspire (and the model which preceded them, the Mercury prior to that). Not impressed with the changes from the 10 to 11, and the overall direction Mizuno is taking this shoe. Overall the stability is greatly increased but they feel stiff. The fit is great, they remind me of the fit/stability of the Inspire 8, before Mizuno drastically changed the model with Inspire 9 (weight, heel drop, stability and fit). But that's about the only positive I can say. Forefoot cushioning feels a lot less than the 10, and the mm profile for the forefoot and mm profile for the heel are decreased even further from the 10. I've put about 40 miles on the 11 and am retiring them to mowing the lawn. These shoes out of the box feel absolutely dead, like there is no energy return when running in them. I get to 6 miles and wish I was wearing a different shoe. Forefoot cushioning has been reduced too much to work for me anymore. I think with Mizuno's quest to make these shoes as light as possible, something was lost along the way. Too bad, this has been my go-to shoe for about 10 years

    So comfy

    By RxHx

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 Running Shoe:

    Coming from the original Wave Enigma, I decided to give the Wave Prophecy, and Wave Inspire a try. The Prophecy was just a bit too stiff for me. But the Inspire? WOW this shoe is so comfortable. Makes my 1.5 mile walks to and from work in NYC a breeze. The only downside I have noticed so far is the toe box seems a little too roomy. Otherwise these things fit my feet like a glove and offer the perfect amount of cushioning and support. Love these and looking forward to the new Enigmas as well.

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 Running Shoe:

    I now have 4 pairs of shoes that I rotate. I read something about benefits of rotating and went extreme of course :-) The Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 give me the best feeling of support when I run on concrete and hit the curb at intersections alot. It's no wonder when looking at the thickness of materials used I guess. I think I also got lucky they are the perfect width for me, something you can't tell before you try. I had to give up on some other shoes because they were too wide and I would get blisters.
    Love the Mizunos, great product, try them if you need stability or stability plus!

    Good out of the box

    By Raybo

    from Tennessee

    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Inspire 11 Running Shoe:

    Put these shoes on right out of the box and ran seven miles. The Wave Inspire 10 rubbed a blister on my ankle. These didn't rub at all. Felt good cushioning with plenty of support for over pronation. Really love these.
