Comments: I am 6'2", 180 lbs, 3rd year running, 18:38 5K and 39:45 10k PR. I tried on about 15 pairs of lower profile shoes over the winter and spring in order to replace the Brooks Launch I used on the track and in 10K or less races. I like everything about this shoe. I am size 12.5 in most shoes except my adidas energy boost long distance trainers - wear 13. The Hitogami fit perfect in 12.5 and wear thin - medium sock. Great toe box space, athletic and snug heel cup. Laces are best of any shoe. Very light upper. I like that the wave plate only extends through half of the shoe - found the Wave Prophecy and Sayanora unwearable due to full plate. I feel close to ground but with some cushion. Only have used on track intervals and 3mi or less easy runs will use on 5k at end of month. Good shoe for someone who does not want to go down to an ultra-light flat. Color is boring but they still look good.

Comments: Bought these in black and wore them all day at work in anticipation of my run later in the day. So comfortable and light! I normally run in the wave rider and prior thought I was a stability shoe person....guess not. This shoe is great, I've put over 20 miles on them and will wear them for the half marathon in June. If it helps I'm 6'2" 200 lbs and not the typical runner, But enjoy running in these dope sneakers a lot.

Comments: This is really a fantastic shoe. I have been using it for most of my runs(40-50mpw currently non marathon training). Feels good on easy runs, but definitely excels on tempo/faster pace runs. This may be my next Marathon Shoe. I would highly recommend this shoe if you are looking for a fast, light weight trainer or racer. The Hitogami's worked much better for me than the Sayonara's.
