Comments: I have the hardest time finding shoes that I like for more than a couple of weeks. Many I try tend to lose support after a few runs or just no longer feel right on my feet. I decided to finally up the ante and get a nice pair of running shoes after reading TONS of reviews, I did the unthinkable and purchased some online based on reviews alone....but I'll say--these shoes are amazing! The many problems I've come across on shoes are as follows: my toes going numb, my toes being squished in the front thus rubbing blisters on my toes (from toenails), if they have enough cushioning they tend to be too heavy, if they don't-my feet tend to hurt (heel and balls of my feet), too low or too high on the ankls either causing no support or causing blisters because my socks don't go that high. I have a heavy foot fall so heavy shoes are dreadful but the minimals always tend to cause lots of pain during a run. I have ended my search here with the Mizuno Wave Precision 12. they are the perfect width, weight, and support in all the right places. I'm a 34 year old woman and I woudln't say I'm an avid runner by any means but I tend to decide to start running in random spurts of my life. Currently, I'm running a lot. I prefer to run outdoors, not on the treadmill (that foot fall issue rises again). In casual shoes I wear a 7.5--I ordered an 8 in these and my only regret is not getting an 8.5. They run about a half a size small and once you start running and need that extra room you should have hopped up an entire size. Live and learn! I highly recommend this shoe if you are familiar with the issues i've noted. I feel like this is the best move i've made as far as fitness goes!
