Having 2 pair of Wave Inspires, and not seeing what I wanted when I needed my next pair, I decided to try these new ones. Out of the box, I wasn't too sure, as they are much more stiff than what I'm used to. I held on to them for a while before deciding to give them a run. Much to my surprise, I found them not only more stable, but very light on my feet, and actually felt like I had more energy during my run. If you're used to a soft mesh shoe, these will take you out of your comfort zone. And for pronators, they do seem to do the trick.

The top of this shoe between the laces and the toe tip felt extremely low; there was no wiggle room to flex your toes up. It already seemed to be pressed against the top surface of my big toe, so that would have become an issue trying to run in them. I am a 5'4", 115-lb pronator who does not have wide feet. After years of wearing the Brooks Adrenaline GTS, last year I switched to the Mizuno Wave Alchemy and loved it; after reading that the Alchemy was being discontinued and replaced with the Paradox, I ordered this shoe. It does not feel like the Alchemy; it does not provide the same amount of stability or cushion. I returned them.

I have plantar fasciitis with nerve pain/swelling. I have been searching high and low for a pair of shoes that will support many hours on my feet working. I am a small business owner, who goes from baking all night, to selling all day at farmer's markets. I also teach part-time. I spend a lot of time on my feet! I wear these with the blue superfeet insole. After the first day, I came home with considerably less foot/hip/back pain. If you are like me, and find yourself on your feet for 18+ hours without sitting down, you will like these shoes.

Just LOVE these sneakers. I bought them because I needed a wide sneaker ever since I broke my toe. This sneaker lasts me through my long 12 hour night shifts. PLUS, everyone compliments them all the time ;) Finally found a great pair!

I am a sever over-pronator and am for some crazy reason training for a 10-mile run. I needed good, sturdy shoes as I tend to get stress fractures in my ankles. The combination of slowly increasing my workouts to these quality shoes has led me through the first half of my training without damage so far (knock on wood). They don't feel squishy or tight like some running shoes, but they provide stability and are fairly light weight (for stability shoes). It took about two runs to get use to the new shoes, but I have to say that I do not regret this purchase. I will likely buy a second pair to see me through my full training program and the final run. Mizunos do tend to last, after all.
