    After 2 -3 long runs the shoe really feels comfortable. I bought the shoe 1/2 size bigger due to insert that I use and still has plenty of room. Would buy again and will once new version comes out.

      This is my first pair of Mizunos and I'm not sure I'll ever wear another type of running shoe. They're light, fast, and comfortable. I'm somewhat injury-prone, but these have treated me really well. If I had to ding them for anything, it's that the laces might be a little long! They seem to run a smidge too big, but not too bad.

      Bought these as replacement for my worn out 16's as I couldn't find those anymore. Lots of changes including narrower toe-box and less arch support than old model.
      These are definitely lighter and I was really hoping for the best, but with both my big toes rubbing and little support for my high arches I had to return these. Found a pair of 16's after some long searching.

        Wear 1/2 size larger as recommended and fit is good. Lighter shoe than many but support is good for those 20 plus mile long slow distance runs. Bought second pair to switch between them and this works for me. Highly recommend this shoe

          I use these shoes for training and distance races and they hold up very well. You can expect to get 400 or more miles out of them. I retire my Riders between 350-400 miles. As with most shoes, I remove the inserts and use after market ones.

          Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Rider 17 Running Shoe:

          Right out of the box, just picking up the shoes, I was impressed by how light they were. Looked at the toe box and thought, great, looks very roomy. Color -- mine are slate -- great. But the problem with a newly redesigned shoe always shows up somewhere, especially when the previous model was perfect for you. And there it was -- heel slip. No matter how I laced and tied, the heel slipped. I hate that. It's one of those irritating small nuisaces that blow up bigger in your head as you add speed and distance. Pick up th pace, it slips more. Over time, it's all you think about. So, a little moleskin padding added to the tongue, bought some thicker socks and they almost feel right. Almost.

            I normally wear size 11.5 in other running shoes, in Mizuno I wear size 11, so make sure you order your correct size. This is a lightweight neutral shoe that is firmer than most in this category. It's an excellent shoe that I believe will improve with wear; it is a bit stiff out of the box. I think the shoe is an improvement over the Wave Rider 16, with a lighter, snugger fit and feel.

                  Love the shoe--the cushioning and heel to toe transition is the best. But I have to order the wide to fit as the shoe runs narrower than most. The wide only comes in white which is OK, but I'd prefer choices.

                    I have had sever generations of the Wave Rider, so I wasn't too worried to order the newest version online. I would say the fit and function of the shoe is on par with the last several pairs I have had. I'm a fairly neutral runner so for me the fit isn't as huge a deal. I've done about 30 miles in the shoes and they feel great.

                    My only complaint was that the site suggested I get them a 1/2 size larger, which was a poor suggestion. I had to take mine in to trade for the correct size, once I did that they fit fine and the toe box was adequate.

                      My Wave Rider 16's were worn out and they didn't have my size anymore, so I bought the 17's. Drastic revision to the shoe, not for the better. I have a high arch, and after four medium distance runs my arches hurt. There's very little cushioning and my thighs and calves get very achy and tired running in this shoe. The angle is weird too, it feels like your foot is angled upward. I've put them aside and will return them. Now I'm looking for anther shoe to replace them. Too bad, I really loved my old Mizunos (I've been running in Mizunos for well over 5 years). I hope they fix the shoe for next year.

                      Transitioned from Wave Creation that I have run in for 15 years to try the Wave Rider. Got the same size as past but this shoe seems tight in the forefoot. So switched to the EE size which is now a little too loose. Otherwise very happy as very good cushioning show that is lighter than the Creation. And enjoy the lower price so guess I am an convert.

                        I'm an Asics wearer, and have been for years, because I need the 4E width. But I wanted to step out and try something new, with a bit lower profile.
                        These only go to 2E, so I took a little gamble and bought a pair.
                        They're great.
                        I don't run any longer, but I do exercise. These may be a bit hard for running, but perfect for me.

                            I have run in the Wave Rider for a number of years and thus through quite a few updates. Initially, when I took the shoe out of the box I wasn't sure that I would like it as there were quite a few noticeable changes. These included the logo on the side being painted on as are most of the other shoe markings. Also, the sole pattern has been changed. However, my concerns quickly vanished the first time I ran in them. At this point I think I am really going to l like this shoe due to it lightness, comfort and cushioning. In fact, thus far, I like it better than any of my previous Wave Riders. As the shoe is new I am not sure about durability but I typically change out my shoes every 400 miles so I rarely a pair of shoes out totally anyway.

                            I have been running in wave rider's for over about 2 years and after trying many brands and models, I felt that the wave rider 16 is the best shoe for me. So I thought that the upgrade to the 17 was going to be the next best thing. I was wrong. The latest edition seems to "loose" around the upper forefoot area with too much room. If you try to tie them up tighter the material then hurts your foot while you run. On longer runs I even get blisters on the bottom of my foot, something that NEVER happened with the 16's. Needless to say, I bought another pair of the 16's. Dissapointing

                              Was excited with the promised reduction in weight from the WR 16 - which I loved and had run two marathons in. The 17 is definitely lighter but it does come at a cost. The forefoot lost a little support and leads to some less structured push off. The change in cushioning for the mid foot and forefoot striker is a little diminished which may result in some adjustments in gait.

                              Still love the shoe but am kind of wishing that they would have stayed with the 16 and just changed the colors.

                                I have ran on Addidas Boston's for last 4 years. When these updated Wave Rider17's came out had to give them a whirl. These shoes are extremely light for mid to long distance training. I run 7:30 training pace and training for Bayshore Marathon. Did complete a 20 mile training run in these, essentially out of the box and everything went fine. Very fast shoes. Great transition from mid foot and toe off. They are very similar as far as heel height as the Boston.
                                No complaints, as of yet.These may be replacing my Boston's for good, although i logged lots of great miles in my Boston's.

                                  One of the better shoes I've owned. I have a wide foot and a high arch. Normally fit between a 9 and a 9.5, but usually opt for a 9.5. For those of you that mentioned the shoe is a little narrow, you might find that ordering a half size up(as I do since 9 is very slightly short) works well OR you could just order the 2E's...if that doesn't fit then you should be barefoot skiing :). I was actually swimming the 9.5 2E, that is why I'm in a 9.5 regular width.

                                  The ride is quite smooth with a good heal to toe transition...the shoe is reasonably flexible. Years ago I abandoned this shoe it got stiffer and lost that really smooth transition from heal to toe. The weight is in my sweet spot for a trainer and long distance racer.

                                  I like the 12mm differential, since my achilles seems to be unable to tolerate shoes below 8mm. These shoes fit in nicely with my rotation of Kinvara's and Sayonara's.

                                  Shoes are definitely light.
                                  A little narrow on the toe box.

                                  These shoes are great if you have sweaty feet; the shoes are constructed to breathe!

                                  However, I had to return them since I started feeling pains on my feet and shins. Normally those pains goes away after running 2-3 miles in but the pain lasted longer.

                                  Couldn't train on them anymore since it was affecting my runs.

                                  Great shoes if probably you have lower arch.

                                  I have been wearing wave riders since 2007 mostly because they are a great shoe for those of us with wide feet. They are light, fast and have decent traction. The weird thing is they don't feel like wave riders. They are getting better as I break them in but initially I found the angle between the toe and heal too steep. I am still not completely comfortable with them and would be a bit apprehensive to run a long distance race with them. This seem like a transition year for the wave rider. I get the feeling next years' shoe will be much better.

                                    Moved to the Wave Rider 17 from the Wave Rider 15 and was skeptical when I took the new shoes out of the box and saw how different they were from the old version. But, I get the same level of cushioning and control from a much lighter and slimmer shoe that retains the same fit and feel inside as the earlier version. The Wave Rider 17 is my first choice for long runs.

                                      The moment I put these shoes on, I knew I'd found the ones for me. I can barely feel them. Ran 10 miles in them right out of the box! Great comfort, perfect amount of cushion and great rebound! I love these shoes.

                                      Overall I've been very happy with the shoes and have not experienced some of the problems that the other reviewers have stated. I normally wear a 10 and had to get a 9.5 in this shoe because the sizes do run a little large I feel like. My only real complaint is the rear of the shoe on the bottom seems to be wearing fairly quickly, so durability could be a question on the shoes as they try to lightweight them. But overall I'm happy to of made the switch from the Adidas Boston 3 to these shoes for training. I normally run 30 to 40 miles a week and am training for a marathon, so I hope to get 4 to 6 months of life from the shoes.

                                      I have been running in wave rider's for over 5-years and consider them the best running shoes I have worn over the last 33 years. The latest edition seem flimsy around the upper forefoot area with too much flex. This is perhaps an artifact of Mizuno's efforts to reduce the weight, and caused by the elimination of a strip of reinforcement along the top. The increased flex when the rear foot is pushing off in full stride caused my feet to bleed through my socks. Buy the wave rider 16. Hopefully not the last of a great shoe.

                                      Shoe felt bulky especially considering the very light weight listed on tech specs. It felt like I was wearing a shoe 4-5oz heavier than what was listed.
