Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Hayate Trail Running Shoe:
As a forefoot runner I find the Mizuno Wave Hayate to be amazing on the streets and on the less beaten path. Right out the box and onto the pavement for a three-miler; these shoes felt amazing, did not overcorrect my feet and allowed me to maintain the integrity of stride even though I normally run in the Mizuno Wave Ferus. After a series of examinations by the amazing personnel of RoadrunnerSports, I have tried running in the Asics Gel Kayano 20 and the Saucony Fast Twitch 6 but neither compared to the Mizuno Wave Hayate. The Kayano had to much cushioning for me to feel the ground beneath me and the Fast Twitch over corrected my feet causing my ankles to scream in pain. The Hayate is just right. A step up from the Wave Ferus (which is personally my favorite running shoe) allowing me to take to the road and not be destroyed by the pavement. I normally wear a 12, so I ordered a half size up and while this was sufficient I feel a full size up may be a tad better. - Go Army, Sink Navy!
