    Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Hitogami Running Shoe:

    I gave the Hitogami a try based on the positive reviews at RRS and the various review blogs. This is one comfortable shoe! Within the first two weeks of owning it, I PR'd a tough local 10K race & my legs felt incredibly good after. I'm using the shoe for tempo, track work, & race days, and can see it being a great half-maration shoe. It's not the lightest shoe out there, and I see it more as a hybrid between a race flat & lightweight trainer. It's softer underfoot & more flexible than the Adios 2 or GoMeb Speed 2. It fits a great need in my rotation for faster training days, as the effort and transition feel so smooth. I'm giving it 4 stars since there is moderate wear on the sole after ~50 miles and I'm not sure it will be the most durable shoe.

      Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Hitogami Running Shoe:

      I am a half marathoner, I only ran in New Balance and I was looking for something new and stumbled upon the Mizuno Wave Hitogami and boy am I glad I decided to give these a try they are very comfortable super light weight, and awesome to run in, they are a good racing flat as well as racing trainer. Great for long distances and just overall great shoe and for the price of the shoe! Oh man it's practically a steal and I highly recommend these to anyone who is considering trying these shoes out. I run about 10 miles a day and these are holding up great. Did I mention I have 2 pairs of these! That's how awesome these shoes are.

      Run 50+ miles and working toward boston in April. Love the feel of the shoe. Light but just the right amount of support. Bought a second pair recently to break in for the marathon and they feel great. Really liked the Sayonara but like Hitagami better.

        Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Hitogami Running Shoe:

        Absolutely love this shoe. Everything from the responsive U4IC sole and "just right" toe box, to the artistic exterior of the shoe. I have been wearing the New Balance 1400V2 a lot lately but wanted to give this shoe a shot because of some of the on-line reviews that I have seen. I pulled the shoes out of the box, put them on, and ran six miles in them the first day. No fatigue, no break-in period, no complaints. These shoes make me look forward to wearing them on a run. I run/train primarily in the Saucony Type A5/6, Adidas Takumi Sen, and New Balance 1400V2/1600 but these shoes have reminded me about what Mizuno can bring to the table. Big fan of the Hitogami.
