This is the only shoe I know of that comes as close to fitting like socks on my feet (in the form of a shoe). This 3 oz. shoe is very flexible and comfortable making my entire foot feel as if it were in a velvet glove.

Mizuno hit the bullseye with the Wave Universe 5. They are extremely comfortable (a plush sock with a minimalist sole). Though I am very pleased with the shoe (stylish & eye-catching design), Mizuno's marketing, development, & sales departments need to reconsider the asking price. I am not a picky shopper. However, as a conscious consumer, I value quality over brand & hype. The Wave 5 is, literally, fabric on a foam composite sole (appears to be glued). Onitsuka Tiger's (Tai Chi model specifically speaking) are comparably comfortable and lightweight yet cost anywhere between $89 and $125. These Wave 5 are light as a feather. 10 out of 10. No doubt. Yet, if you are considering the Wave 5 for Tai Chi class or intense workout sessions that include aggressive lateral movement, a leather design maybe a better option. The construction doesn't appear to be able to withstand 3 to 4 day a week tai chi classes. We'll see. All in all … I recommend these shoes. And though I am not fond of the asking price, I intend to order two more pairs. Guess Mizuno's design team saved the sales, marketing & development departments because I am still gonna buy Mizuno Wave Universe 5 … Bullseye indeed!

I'd also recommend: New Balance Minimus/Onitsuka Tiger
