Lighter

By Jeremy

Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 16 Running Shoe:

The Wave Rider 16 fits similarly to the 15 version, but has lost a lot of weight, making runs feel quicker and lighter. This isn't the most cushiony shoe, but is extremely durable and supportive during long runs. I use this shoe to train and am pleased with the update. Must purchase 1/2 size up.

          Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 16 Running Shoe:

          I have been running in Mizuno Waverider for many years. The shoe has gone through several mild changes over the years. It use to be a little heavier and more stable. Now it is lightweight, seems to fit a little snugger and is less bulky than previous Waverider models. If you are a "Neutral" to Neutral-Plus" runner according to RoadRunnerSports.com this shoe is for you.

            I am a Mizuno convert. Have tried other brands but none come close to Mizuno for my feet. Initially ordered size 15, however heel slippage was a problem. I ordered size 14 and slippage is not a problem anymore. Running for years and would have to say this is the best shoe I have ever worn.

                Ordered the shoes Wednesday. Got them Friday. Pulled them out of the box and ran 14 miles on Saturday without any problems. This model is lighter than prior models and will be good for training and longer races. Seems like they might not be as durable but I love them and will continue to buy the Wave Rider. Have been running in them exclusively for years.

                    I'm a beggining runner. I am flat footed, bow legged, heavy set, have wide feet and over pronate. I tried multiple shoes by multiple brands such as Nike, Asics, Brooks etc. I chose these Mizunos in the white and orange colorway because when it came to comfort, durability, cushioning, Price!!! And style these were the perfect fit. Before these I would always get shin splints, knee and ankle pain during and after my runs. These shoes eliminated those issues. Nothing negative to say about these. If you're looking for a great gym/running or walking/casual shoe these are it for you.

These shoes solved all of those issues. After trying all the different Nikes, Asics, Brooks and so on I decides on these Mizunos in the white and orange colorway. Honesty the best when it came to comfort, performance, durability, Price!!!, and style. Honestly have nothing negative to say about the shoe. Perfect for running, walking, gym or just casual wearers. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great versatile running shoe.

                      Tested these in store and they had an amazing forward rolling feeling. Ran in them through the week on concrete in hot weather and there was nothing. Just the hard thud of my legs pounding the pavement. Replaced with a shoe with more cushioning.

                      The lowers are same as the 15. However, the 16 uppers are poor quality. In other words they got cheap. As w/most great running shoes they broke a good thing when they made 16.

                            This shoe is definitely not for bigger guys. I'm 6'4" and 270lbs, and for the first 3 months I loved this shoe. Then the wave plate in the heel of the right shoe gave out. I do treadmill and elliptical twice a day, not "heavy running" but thankfully I'm a vip and had the 90 guarantee. RRS hooked me up with a new pair of mizunos, got the creation 14's as they said it would better handle someone my size. Love my new creations, disappointed in the riders. Loved the yellow color, breathability and fit.

                            Very light, and very very springy. This is at least compared to the Brooks Ghost which used to be my go to until they changed models and didn't work as well.

                                No shoe in the entire Mizuno line has come close to the effortless, magical shoe that was the Rider13's. This shoe is basically the Rider15's with a new upper that is lighter and feels more comfortable than the 15's. The heel cushioning is more than adequate but for midfoot/forefoot strikers, the cushioning at the mid and front half of the shoe isn't quite substantial enough to last for longer runs of more than 10 miles. I really wish they bring back the rider13's for a limited production run. I would buy a hundred pairs if possible!

                                This is my third pair of these puppies and I love them. Just enough cushion to handle my usual shin pain. Light and comfy. My only complaint is that it wears out quickly after 200 miles especially around the outer middle part. Maybe it's the way I run but will try to change that. Nevertheless, I'm a mizuno fan now after being on the Asics bandwagon for a while.

                                  Ive got wide feet and a slightly high arch. This shoe fits true to my 12.5 size foot. I had been Mizuno Wave 15's and these are definitely a notch up in my opinion.

                                    I have only tried two pairs of running shoes but I love these the best! I have narrow feet so these are a bit wide for me, but with insoles in, they fit fine. You should love them if you have normal to wide feet.

                                        I use it for running, and working out in the gym(my basement) These shoes are very comfortable and didn't require any breakin period for me! I haven't noticed any issues with these models yet and these are my second pair, third if you count the older model Wave Rider 15 :)

                                        Great shoe...if my insert didn't slip. It's a minor slip but a bit annoying at the end of my run...wondering if I just got a weird shoe or??? It's only my right shoe.

                                          First, a bit about me: I'm 5'9", 175 lbs, and running 3-4 days a week now. I have wide feet and prefer 2E in most brands. This shoe definitely fits 'true to size'; if anything, it's a bit loose, but not too much so; overall, incredible fit, really light-weight, and very comfortable right out of the box. I've been an Asics guy in recent years, but this Mizuno has made me a believer! Highly recommended.
