Customer Reviews

Comments: This is the best running shoe I have owned and a steal! I own a couple pair of Mizuno's, a couple pair of NB and still have a pair of Nike but none can compair to these. I've got about a 150 miles on them now and not one single ache or pain with my feet and legs. I love, love, love them!

Comments: First impressions, I find these shoes to be very much like my beloved Mizuno wave inspire 6 which I'm just now finishing up my 3rd pair. The Nexus seems to be a tad lighter but for all intents and purposes gives me the same support and cushioning. The shoe fitter advised me to buy a 12.5, 13. I bought size 12 and they fit exactly like my wave inspire 6 size 12. At the clearance price, I'm thinking that I found a great bargain in terms of an everyday training shoe. I'm also considering these for my next 13.1. Conclusion, at under $50, If I can get 300, 350 miles out of these, I'm happy. Don't be afraid of taking a chance on these, they aren't cheap shoes, they are a quality Mizuno product.

Comments: One of the best fitting uppers on a trainer out there...... Had to size down to 9.5 and in some shoes I wear 10.5 so shoefitr is off on Mizuno's for me....beware of sizing....stack height is large 13mm but works for me and have not had ankle twisting on light trails....but could be a concern for some. Overall this is a very overlooked shoe and great value.
