The Precision 13 is a moderate feature, moderate neutral shoe designed for speedwork, racing and daily training.


  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the heel to the midfoot, creating an incredibly springy and well-cushioned ride.


  • AP+ is Mizuno's top of the line full-length copolymer midsole for a lighter, more 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.


  • 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.


  • X10 located in the heel and forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I have run 12 marathons and I have never worn Mizuno before this shoe. After trying it out, I can say I love them. They are a great shoe that wears well. Light, responsive, and comfy...what more could you ask for?? I run on my midfoot and found this shoe a bit harder to hit there at first (I think because of the higher heel) but....after a couple of runs I found them to be super speedy and a nice break for my calfs. I also LOVE the colors. Great Job Mizuno.

Comments: I have worn Mizuno shoes for several years, and was not disappointed in the Wave Precision 13. The shoe is light and comfortable, and the bright color combination makes it fun to wear. I ordered a half size larger as recommended on the shoe finder, but returned them and ordered my regular size. I found they DO NOT run small, but seem true to size. My only complaint is the shoe tongue slides to the side rather than remaining in the center, which is annoying and somewhat uncomfortable. Mizuno needs to attach the tongue to the shoe to prevent this problem. Other than that, a great shoe.

Comments: I have been wearing the Saucony Progrid Ride for about 3 years now, completeing several half marathons and one full marathon. I am currently training for another marathon and decided to try out the Mizuno Precision 13.  It is lighter than my other running shoes and much softer in the heel.  The midsole is supportive but I continue to wear orthodic inserts in the Mizuno as I did in the Saucony.  I have suffered from plantar faciitis in the past and my arch is fairly high.   The padding in the toe box is very thin.  When running on smooth pavement this was not an issue.  But when I ran on rough/bumpy pavement I could feel every stone/bump.  I wore them on a 12 mile run and they felt pretty good so I am going to stick with this shoe. However, the write-up recommended I get a half size bigger than my normal running shoes.  This was NOT good advice.  I am returning the shoes for my regular size.  I wear a 7.5 everyday shoe and an 8 in running shoes.  The 8.5 I ordered for the Mizuno is just too big.  The shoefittr is now updated for this shoe and it actually tells me to wear an 8, like always.  Overall great shoe, great color, great price.
