Awesome pair of shoes, this is the 2nd pair I bought in 2 weeks..purchased other pair somewhere else, but they felt so good and the design is pretty cool and wild that I had to have a 2nd backup pair! I work out every day and was stopped by several trainers/clients who wanted to know what kind they were and where to get them :)

I am loving these sneakers! They are so light you hardly feel like you are wearing shoes. I also find they give great support. I have gotten numerous compliments on my "cool shoes!"

I love running with shoes that support, but also let you feel like you don't have anything on your feet. After visiting a running store that actually fit you for your shoes, I tossed my Nike Free+ which I had been true to for years and have stuck with these ones ever since! Great shoes!

These are so cute! Very comfortable...if you have high arches, you might want to add an insert though. I get compliments on them all the time; definitely recommend these!

I've been wearing Saucony for the past two decades as they have always accommodated my need for a wide toe box, narrow heel, and decent stability. I also was a user of Super Feet. In the past few years I've developed osteoarthritis and find that the Saucony instep and toe box is too tight a fit for me now, especially with inserts. I tried these Mizuno in a local store and they fit like a dream. Much lighter and less stable than trusty Saucony's buy they have the cushioning and toe box 'give' I was seeking.

Love this shoe. They are very lite weight. Love the color. I run about 3 miles daily outside or at a gym. I will order another pair when these get worn out

These running shoes are fantastic. My last pair of running shoes was the previous version of the Mizuno Elixir 7 which I was fitted for at a running store. I loved them so much I wanted another pair. I typically buy my running shoes a size larger to allow space for movement in the toe area , but this shoe seems a bit larger in that area so I only needed a 1/2 size larger. I've been running for years and this is one of the best running shoes I've worn.

I have rarely been as excited about a new shoe as I was about this one. It is very light and the toebox is huge, which may make it feel wider than normal to some, but is wonderful for someone like me who has a tendency to lose nails on longer runs. Otherwise the fit feels true to size. I usually run in a 10 (in Mizuno and Brooks) and that was the size I got for the Elixir. I've run about 50 miles in them so far and am a big fan. I also personally like the pattern. Two thumbs up.

LOVE this shoe! I have narrow heels, flat arches, a bunion on one foot and I pronate. I know, yikes! Mizuno shoes always provide a soft landing and the perfect fit for my foot issues. I tried the Wave Ascend and The Wave Inspire, but the Elixir felt the best. Light weight, breathable and very cushioned foot bed. I use my own orthotics but I think there is a decent arch support. I normally buy 1/2 size up with Mizuno but didn't this time and the fit is perfect!

I love these. I usually wear a 7.5 but the ordered an 8 in hopes they would fit. They were out of 7.5. Sadly they didn't fit. Must return them.

Great shoes! I am a runner and in the past have always liked Saucony and Asics. Decided to try out the Mizuno Wave and they have a lot of support but not the best in cushion. They took a while to break in, but now they are working out fine.

These actually look better in person than in the pictures. I was worried that they would look too "animal." However, that being said, I realize I was not really buying these for fashion, I was buying them for athletics. I wore these a few times on my five minute walk to/from work several times before my first long run with them, but then on my run I had to cut it short because I was feeling a blister on my heel where the foot padding insert met the shoe. I am going to break them in a little more before my next run. I know this will not be a problem for everyone, but it is something that you might want to know.

These shoes were not as comfortable as I had hoped. I found the foot bed to be too hard. The toe box was too wide as well. Nice looking though.
