I've struggled with plantar fasciitis for years and have tried every kind of insole and shoe type. These were like walking on air...the first shoe that really made a difference. Terrific support with no pounding in sensitive parts of the foot. Plus with the front mesh they are very cool in the summer. I also bought a pair of the next level shoe up in this brand. Only criticism is some of the color choices are really wild.

Unfortunately the lace box bridge is thick and cuts into your foot. If you run long distances, this cutting will cause an injury. It injured me!

I have owned these shoes for a few months. I used to run on a more supportive shoe, a Brooks GTS but they just didn't seem to hold up too well so I wanted to switch brands and try something new. At first, these shoes were outstanding. The cushion system in the heel is amazing. There is not much support for people who over pronate like I do. Now I have to take a few weeks off because I have developed tendinitis on the upper outside of my knee near my fibula. I am giving these shoes a lots of stars because they are good shoes and have held up very well. If you do over pronate avoid these shoes. If you are a neutral or under pronator then these just may be the shoes for you.

This shoe is great. I have a dedicated pair just for running because they are so comfortable. I also had the Wave Rider 15s and I think these are very comparable. The only thing I don't like about them is that they are only available in the ugly yellow for size 14EE.

I underpronate and have very high arches. I have been running in Mizuno shoes for years, 3 to 5 miles every other day. I am about 200 lbs. The older models had more arch support and catered more toward the underpronator's foot morphology. These are shaped more towards the neutral runner and a more general running crowd. They are still better than the rest of the underpronator shoes out there, but definitely not Mizuno's best shoe in this line.

I'd also recommend: Saucony
