I've run in the past several versions of the Wave Riders - I LOVED the 16, the 17 was an abomination, I skipped the 18 for a clearance pair of 16s because the 17s were so awful, and the 19 was a major improvement. When I laced these up, though, all I felt was "meh." And do you want to know why? Because while every manufacturer limits their narrow model to one color, Mizuno always picks either the most boring color (like this perfectly fine blue - but the other colors are SO much better), or the fugliest possible color combo (like the atrocious white, purple, and yellow 17s). So, Mizuno, while you're on the right track in terms of fit and comfort, the color choice for narrow is a snooze-fest.

Love the style and I used to wear Mizunos for years for their comfort. But these have a mesh type material along the arch so it gives absolutely no support. The other issue is the outside heel area, it unfortunately dug in too much and caused discomfort.

This is my second pair of Mizuno running shoes. They are becoming my preferred brand. These are lightweight with just the right amount of support. They do run small, and I had to order a half-size up. They run just a touch narrow, especially in the toes, so I had to order the wide.

I thought I wore a women's size 10W, but have been buying a men's shoe size9 (wide feet!). I decided to buy a women's 10.5W this time, and I'm glad I did! These shoes are perfect! I love, love, love the color. They provide exactly the right support. I'm not really a runner, but I am a walker (3 - 5 miles a day) and they're just what I wanted. Mostly, I've been looking for beautifully, brightly colored shoes, and Mizuno women's shoes have come through again!

This shoe does not have the comfort or support you expect from Mizuno for walking or running, but it looks nice.
