Absolutely love this shoe. I changed to a neutral Mizuno shoe after I started having foot pain from plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. I have orthotics that fit fine in the shoes, but have found that I like using the factory insert. I fast walk 30 miles per week. Since I loved the Wave Rider 15 and 16, I was a little apprehensive about going to the 17 since there were some design changes. The new design is even better and I didn't think that was possible. Two things to keep in mind. First, this is a neutral, flatter shoe. I don't over or under pronate, so I can't speak for that. Second, I normally wear a 7.5 dress shoe, an 8 running shoe. I had to order an 8.5 in the Mizuno Wave Rider. This give plenty of toe room, but not loose around the heel. I have only had them one week, but already have 30 miles on them, with zero break-in time. The fun new color is an added bonus.

I am literally so confused and disappointed? I can't believe what I'm looking at like what happened to the shoe is it EXTREMELY cheaply made from the outside and in... Comparing all my Mizunos this just doesn't look even like the same brand? Sadly I will have to return and go back to Asics.

I have run in Wave Riders for years and this latest update is awful. I have narrow feet and these run in narrows, but the redesign of the shoe has a longer and wider lacing system. In addition, the reinforced area at the base of the laces is straight, not curved (like almost all other shoes including previous Mizuno models. As a result, the laces come all the way down to the tops of my toes and for my foot to bend at a weird angle. I got blisters after just one mile. I have literally run thousands of miles in Mizunos over the years and have never had a blister. Also, this new redesign is light, but seems very cheaply made. Mizunos have never been a long wearing shoe, but these seem just cheap. Unfortunately, I will have to find a new brand.

Love these shoes! Different from other Mizunos provides support at multiple points. Best shoes ever!

I'd also recommend: None Mizuno is in a class by itself

I run in Mizunos regularly, and have worn a lot of other versions of the Wave Rider, but the toe box felt narrower in this one, possibly because of where the seam hit me. Otherwise it was very similar to other styles I've worn and loved.
