I took to finding the perfect shoe with relentless determination. I discovered there is no such thing as a perfect shoe but several really great shoes. I will never be a pro athlete but I will try to keep my blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar within normal and thank goodness I don't have to be a pro athlete to achieve my goals. I walk and bike and use the treadmill to jog. I use 3 different types of Brooks and have added the Mizuno. Personally I have discovered I need more than one type of shoe. Some days I am a heel striker other days I am not,some days I over pronate somedays I don't. The shoes are pricey,but for me monthly medication would be more costly. And in defense of the shoes there is a lot of technology we are getting for the price. However I wish more shoe companies would add "narrow" and "wide" options. Lastly socks are so important, I have great shoes and was wearing my husbands old socks, so I spent a few weeks researching socks with relentless determination.

Beautiful shoe but not for running. Not enough support for me and it gave a marathon running friend shin splints.

This is my 3rd pair of these wonderful shoes. I absolutely love them and recommend them. They fit your foot like a glove, are super comfortable, and never hurt your feet. I just ran my first half marathon in them and wow they were fabulous. However, you do need to go up half a size as they do run small. But I bet if you tried these you'd never go back. Plus you will get wonderful customer service with any of the Zappos team members...they are great & informative!

The Mizuno Wave Creation 13 is the best running/walking shoe I have ever purchased. It is light and you feel like you are walking on air. It is well worth the money! Zappos had it to my door exactly as they had indicated.

Love the fit of these shoes. They have extra room in the toe box, but they're not so wide that the shoe is loose on the front of the foot. They also fit nice and snug on the heel. I have bursitis in my feet and have had no pain when walking/running in these shoes. I did use the precision fit tool on the Mizuno website to find the best shoes for my feet. One note about the color; I have the Sangria color and the pink does bleed onto my socks when the shoes get wet.

Awesome shoes, fit perfectly! I own another pair of Mizuno's, they run small, I usually wear an 8, these are 8 1/2. Great support for cardio. Lots of compliments at the gym on the cool pink color. I'm mid 40s...

I bought these Mizuno Wave Creation 13 in sangria for my 23 year old daughter. She absolutely loves them. They have excellent arch support and fit like a glove. They run half size small. She wears a 7 so I ordered her a 7½. Those fit perfectly! The width is true to size. Get them, you will not go wrong. Thanks, Zappos, I ordered them Tuesday night at 8:00 PM and got them Wednesday. Zappos, you are the best!

I love these shoes. They foot my foot like a glove. I have a really high arch and these shoes have excellent arch support. The sangria color is a definite attention grabber. Overall, I am 110% happy with my purchase.

I decided to splurge and get the updated version of my Mizuno first love: Wave Creation 11, but was disappointed with the comfort of the 13 version. They are great stability shoes for my high arches and everyone has loved the color and style. They are okay to run in but after a week of running I was surprised to see that I had a blister! I have been running in my WC 11's for over a year and worn holes in the soles.

Great color, good room in toe. Heel is too deep so that the shoe rim sits on my ankle bone. Too bad. Would have loved to keep them, but know I will end up with a blister there.

I love these shoes! I purchased the Mizuno Wave shoes based on the reviews from others and I must say the reviews were on point. I was apprehensive about spending the money on these shoes but they are worth EVERY penny! Your feet will thank you! If you are looking for good support and comfort for running/walking you will not be disappointed. I had to order a half size larger.

Ordered running shoes for my daughter to be delivered by ground. The deliverer said left at front door but when I checked they were not at the front or back door. I called the deliverer and they stated must call Zappos. Unbelievable service! I called and talked to a lady and while she was on the phone I checked the bushes by the doors and by chance the garage door. They were up against the garage! I told Zappos never mind and opened the package. The shoes were exactly what I ordered but Zappos still upgraded my delivery status to next day on my next order and made me a VIP. I kept saying all was fine, shoes were exactly what I requested, and delivery was made to correct address but she insisted. Stating they were not where they (the delivery service) had said and I was inconvenienced! Could not believe what great service! That is definitely going the extra mile and then some (like a marathon!) What service! The customer rep was so pleasant and rewarded me for my time and angst! Haven't had this type of customer service in over 15 years! Great job Zappos and kudos to your customer service. They truly understand customer Service and what that means! Usually visit the store and it is great also. Oh and my daughter loves the shoes!

These shoes are amazing! I was informed by two separate websites that analyze your foot to find the perfect running shoe for your weight, running type, pronation, etc that these were the must-have shoes for me. They were so right! I am just getting started with running and getting really in shape, and these are so comfortable. I have a lot of problems with my feet falling asleep when I am running or on the elliptical, and my feet do not do that at all when I am wearing these. They were perfect right out of the box-no breaking in necessary - which is another huge plus for me! The color is great and will look cute with all of my workout outfits! Highly recommend these to anyone!

I am thrilled with these running shoes. I don't run, but if you're looking for a super comfortable sneaker, this is it. I work part-time at a store with a cement floor, and it really takes it toll on your feet. I have tried numerous sneakers, and have quite a large collection, thinking the new ones will be more comfortable, which they were not. Not till I tried these. They are wonderful. Don't hesitate to try them, you certainly won't be sorry!

Another great running shoe from Mizuno. Be careful of the Sangria color. In the beginning the red ran onto my nice new white running socks.

Love Mizuno's! These are everything promised & more...put them on, perfect fit. Exceeds expectations...no difficulties on first wearing or since. Wear them daily to work (in hospital setting with constant walking). They have also helped with my back problems. Highly recommend! Worth the money.

My job requires that I walk and stand for 8 hours straight so having a comfortable shoe is paramount. The Mizuno Wave Creation 13 has been an excellent neutral shoe thus far. Go a half size up for more comfort. I bought the brilliant sangria color and have been fielding compliments more so from men than women, but they are so comfortable I'm going to buy the other color as well. Very lightweight. If you're thinking this over, just buy them. You won't be disappointed.

I've been a fan of Mizunos for years. Started with the Wave Riders and switched to the Wave Creation a few years ago. Recently purchased this shoe and am not disappointed. Mizuno continues to please. I'm usually a 6 1/2 or 7 in regular shoes, but always buy a 7 1/2 in Mizunos.

I had never heard of Mizuno before I ordered these shoes but now I'm a believer! I've always worn Asics gels because they are great for all the standing I do at work but discovered they just didn't do the job on the elliptical. I've never been able to use one without numbness in my toes and sore feet afterwards. After trying out several different brands and styles with no luck a friend recommended Mizuno. I went to their website and used the excellent shoe selection tool. After reading the reviews here I ordered a pair a half size larger than what I normally wear. I thought they felt a little weird at first - wide in the toe box, a little stiff and with no Asics "cush" and pronounced arch support. But I had faith in the reviews and after just a few minutes on the elliptical I was in love with these shoes. No burning or numbness in my toes, plenty of room in the forefoot and a perfect snug fit for my somewhat narrow heel. Also I have bursitis in my left knee and I have no pain while exercising in these shoes. Please give these a try if you've ever struggled to find a comfortable and supportive shoe.

Ladies, do not hesitate to order these shoes. Read the reviews and go from there. I have had terrible foot problems these shoes are for the women that needs a soft run the cushioning is fantastic. Order half a size up the medium width runs narrow I have very narrow feet with no padding or fat on my feet my insert fit great! I let my insert correct my pronation. I just ordered another pair of Mizanos. I love these shoes I am a hair stylist and wear them all day. The reviews I read were very helpful, thanks. What amazed me was that I received the shoes in two days.

I had a pair of running shoes that were alright. I wanted something that was cute and worked for me. I found a site that did an evaluation of the amount of running I did and how I placed my feet (heel first, toe first, etc.). This shoe came back as a recommended shoe. I ordered the shoe got it the next day (of course) and have been running in it since. This is a lightweight shoe that is cute. I was able to wear it immediately without issue - no break in time at all. I am very happy with the style, the fit, and the performance.

First of all, I love this shoe. Wish I could live in them, because they are so comfortable. Do order up 1/2 size. I usually wear 9 (1/2 size large than normal street shoes), but got these in 9.5 and they fit perfect. Also, my foot runs on the narrow side and these are good.
