MIDSOLE

  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the heel to the midfoot, creating an incredibly springy and well-cushioned ride. 
  • SR Touch cushioning compound provides resiliency and rebound in the heel for shock absorption.
  • U4ic is a lightweight midsole that provides optimal shock absorption, durability and a resilient ride.
  • Smooth Ride is a gender specific network of grooves that minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot to create a smooth heel to toe ride.
  • Extended Wave Plate in the midfoot is an extension of the Mizuno Wave for increased torsional rigidity between the heel and forefoot.
  • Intercool ventilation system in the midsole inhibits humidity buildup to keep feet cool and dry.
  • Gender Engineering utilizes gender-specific attributes such as a wider base in men’s shoes and additional flex grooves in women’s shoes.

OUTSOLE

  • X10 is located in the heel for enhanced traction and is composed of durable carbon rubber.
  • Blown rubber in the forefoot increases cushioning and responsiveness.

UPPER

  • AIRmesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
  • Dynamotion Fit creates optimal fit with stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.
  • OrthoLite Sockliner is anti-microbial and moisture wicking for a healthy foot environment.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.

Customer Reviews

Comments: 3:25-3:40 marathoner; I rotate shoes frequently and wear various brands. Previously wore and liked the Inspire 4's, didn't like the 5's as much and moved on to more neutral shoes. Ended up as a wear tester for the Wave Rider 17's and thought that shoe was solid--albeit the forefoot stiff--and ran 2 marathons in them. Bought a 2nd pair but as I upped my mileage in training for Boston was feeling the occasional knee twinge. Read a lot of negative reviews of this shoe, but it's such a great price on discount I thought I'd give it a try. Reviews seemed to conclude that although this is categorized as a stability shoe it has a flexible, well cushioned forefoot--sounded good, so I took my chances. Ran in them 10 out of the box, no problems, then a 20 mile LR. Really enjoyed the ride. Only a few criticisms: --The shoe is cut a bit too high on the ankle bone/heel. Switched to different socks and that worked but might not for someone with a thicker ankle/heel. --Tongue could be longer; awkward lacing if you're sometime like me who needs to use the top eyelets. --I'm not vain, but the color scheme of the white shoe is pretty ugly. Other than that, no complaints. Will continue to train in these for Boston and may wear them in the marathon.

Comments: This was my first pair of Mizuno, and I'm not sure if I'll be back. Like another reviewer, the fit was fine, but I only walked 2 miles in these shoes and they rubbed the base of my 4th toes so much so that it broke the skin. There's some sort of seam or different material where the top of the shoe and the lace area meet that makes this shoe super uncomfortable. I literally had sores (and now scabs) on the top of my feet. Although they fit, they were completely unwearable - there's no way these could be broken in. Maybe it was the construction of this particular shoe, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to chance it again.

Comments: Mizunos are my favorite running shoe. Just got the Musha and they are perfect. The Inspire 10 is different. First time I wore them no problem. Next time I got a blister at the base of 4th toe. Third time I got a blister same place on the other foot. This shoe is going to take some breaking in. Not a fan so far. And I never get blisters from Mizunos. Apparently I do with this shoe.
From: Kim. December 21st 2014

Comments: My daughter loves the shoe but it ran way too small. I used the shoefitr tool to determine size and then ordered accordingly however I will order two sizes larger than the size she typically wears.
From: Anonymous.  December 16th 2014

Comments: I was afraid to try the shoe after reading negative reviews. I tried really hard to find the Inspire 9's before they were extinct but had no little luck. I gave up and went ahead an bought the Inspire 10's... I LOVE the shoe more than I thought I would! With a definite lighter feel to them I feel like I'm wearing nothing at all. I have not had any issues since I bought my first pair earlier in the year. Since then I've bought 2 more pairs.
From: Anonymous. October 24th 2014

Comments: I ran in the inspire 6's and than 8's. I LOVED them all. I have to say I was a little disipointed when my 10's arrived. They looked a little cheap and they did not fit like my others. I still love them, but not as much as past models.
From: Samantha, Bath, MI, USA. October 23rd 2014

Comments: I loved my Wave Inspire 9s and was extremely disappointed when the company discontinued them. Decided to try the new 10s and I have to say, I'm NOT a fan. My shins and feet hurt in placed they never did with the 9s. Why fix what wasn't broken?! I'm not a happy customer and will be looking into a different brand of shoe now. Perhaps Brooks will work for me.
From: Katelyn, Lincoln, NE, USA. October 2nd 2014

Comments: I have worn Inspire for 16 years and every now and then, but not often, a version comes in and is different. The 10 is different and has a negative fit around the width of the toe box, with too much movement available. Hopefully, Mizuno will go back to the traditional Inspire fit.
From: Kerri, Australia. August 31st 2014

Comments:I previously ran in the wave rider (16s). I just couldn't make the switch to the 17s. The shoe went on too much of diet (kind of like lots of reviews on the Inspire change). I also ran in the previous Inspire but wasn't a huge fan. After months of searching, I finally came back to these. They honestly feel like the Wave Rider 16s, which are a neutral shoe. Go figure. At any rate, they are supportive enough for me. I actually like the fabric and agree with another review that they do need a bit a of a break in period (first time ever for a Mizuno shoe for me). My only complaint is that the shoe's tongue could be a tiny bit longer. But I never seem to think about that when I am running. They handle my current mileage just fine (ramping up for a fall marathon). This is my second pair just incase changes are made in a new model before my next marathon.
From: Anonymous. August 1st 2014

Comments: I miss the Inspire 9 : (. I'm running in the 10s but they feel very different and I'm not loving them. My feet seem to move around more inside the shoe creating hot spots I never felt in the 9s. Also I miss the springy feel of the 9, these feel flat and less responsive to my foot strike. I also have a new pair of Brooks Ravenna 5s that feel the same. I'm not sure what to look at now but I want my Inspire 9s back!!
From: Kat, NH, USA. April 25th 2014

Comments: Why did they have to fix what wasn't broken? I LOVED the Inspire 9. The new toe box is too wide, to much overcorrection, and awful fabric. One of the things I loved about the 9, was the open weave mesh. Thankfully the person that did my new fitting recommended the neural version of the Inspire. Mizuno, stick with what works.
From: Suzanne, Dallas, TX, USA. April 18th 2014

Comments: Why is it that if something is working for you the company has to go and change it completely!? I LOVED The Inspire and have worn it for years. Models 6-9 have served me well. Helped me so much I even got rid of my plantar fasc thanks to the slight heel drop. Now? BOO! Hate the 10 and I sent them back. Back to the drawing board. Lame, Mizuno.
From: Ashley, Dallas, TX, USA. April 10th 2014

Comments: Mizuno ruined the Inspire by taking too much away from the upper and making the toe box too wide. I have worn the Inspire since model 6 and bought 10 and wore them on a 6 mile run and got a huge blister on the top of my foot because the toe box was too loose and the edging around the shoe laces inside the shoe rubbed on my foot. I have worn Mizunos since 2006, but now have to find a new shoe because the only other options for over-pronators are too heavy. Boo Mizuno, booo! (size 9.5)
From: Laura, Albany, NY. 4/1/14

Comments: Best iteration of the Inspire that Mizuno has ever designed. I've been a fan of the shoe since version 4, but the changes made in the 7 and 8 were not for the better, and not working for me. I was ready to jump ship, but decided to give the 10's a try. Glad I did. All good changes...Comfort, stability and support are perfect, and they feel even lighter than previous models. I will put a couple pair of these on the shelf, in case Mizuno decides to change things up again. This is my perfect shoe!
