I am extremely happy with the color, design, fit, and comfort of this shoe. This is my third pair of Mizuno shoes. I highly recommend this shoe no any neutral runner.

Have made several purchases from Zappos and they are a great outfit! Customer service is excellent. Had a package apparently disappear from front door (UPS said it was delivered but it never showed up). Zappos dealt with the situation with maximum convenience and reassurance for me. Worked out great. Would use Zappos again in a heartbeat.

I'm a bigger guy (215 lbs, 6'0") and a casual runner. These are by far the most supportive, comfortable shoes for me, particularly since I have had lower back issues. They absorb the shock and allow me to walk/run faster and further than I have before. Well worth the money. Great Lime Green Color as well. I'm so pleased with this shoe that this is the first review I have ever posted on the web.

Great shoe. Much better than the 14. With the 14, I felt like there was something sticking up in the center, like I was walking on a rail. This shoe is completely smooth and extremely comfortable. Not crazy about the bright yellow, but I'll live.

Brands I'd also recommend: Saucony

I wear all brands to run in, and only bought these because of the unique color. Boy was I surprised, they ended up being my best fitting and most comfortable running shoes, I don't take them off.

Brands I'd also recommend: asics and adidas

I'm a bigger runner with high arches. I had started to get small injuries with my Asics Nimbus 13s. My job entails a three mile running test each year. These got me back on the trail, and I knocked it out with one of my better run times, around a 6:40/mile pace. I'm able to run four of five times a week easily again.

Excellent shoes, I've used Creation 13 for running but these are the best. I already bought another pair with different color. You will be happy with them.

I have used the wave rider as my daily running shoe for about 3 years now, and I run a lot. I get a new pair about every four months. I use them as my trainers for cross country and track.

Solid neutral running shoe. I've used these for half and full marathons. Bought the WaveRider 14 and then the 15 again. No complaints. Plus, the red looks pretty slick.

These are the best running shoes that I have bought in 10 years. I am not a big runner, but do a lot of cross fit. They have a great cushion, are stable, and feel good. I am about 6'1" and 215 pounds and it cant get anymore comfortable than this.

Mizuno Wave Rider 15 is an excellent running shoe; no blisters; extremely light weight. First time I used Zappos and I was very impressed with the easy to navigate website and ease of ordering. Love the free shipping. Order arrived within 2 days. Will use Zappos again. Great experience, thank you. Steve C.

Great shoes! Very easy to break in (pretty much ready to go from the get go). The heel might be a tad to high, but you get that extra cushion. definitely recommend the shoe!

Mizuno has done a great job with the Wave Rider 15. The Wave Rider 14 had me worried when it fit much differently than the 12 or 13. Glad to see they are back on track and I can keep using the Wave Rider as my running shoe.

My son loves these shoes - and he has picky feet. He has a long, low arch that requires support - and he does a lot of running and soccer playing in these. He used to complain of leg and foot cramps when he had run a lot, but now he seems to be pain free with Mizuno!

I have been buying Wave Riders since forever because I have arthritic joints. I don't run but walk a lot and I walk on the treadmill. The 15s are the most comfortable yet. I liked them so much, I bought a pair for my wife and they have helped her plantar fasciitis in a matter of days. I bought a second pair to wear because the red ones are so cool that I am saving to sell on eBay next year for a lot of money.

These are amazingly snug shoes that do not slip and feel great at each step on my run. I find myself being able to put about 500 miles on the shoes before I start to feel soreness in my knees. These shoes are comfortable for my neutral heel strike gait.

Purchased these for my husband, and he loves them. They are flexible enough that his foot does not feel too confined, but they also provide much needed stability for repeat hill-sprints. Definitely a good buy!

Purchased for a son who chose them for running.Enough support stitching and solid areas, less mesh.Good. Plenty of color but doesn't slip into the new "clown shoe" theme other shoes are doing.
