        Love these shoes. Needed a lightweight new pair for a summer of mid-distance training and gave these a try. They're light but supportive, I barely realize they're there. Less flexible than Nike Free's but more support/seriousness in them. I fear that they'll breakdown kinda quickly, but I'll probably just re-order if that happens. They're great 3 months in, really pleased.

          Would definitely suggest and encourage! But go a half size bigger.

              The first time I wore these shoes I ran 9 miles and I loved them, no blisters, no pain and super comfortable. They are lightweight and flexible. I wore these shoes to train for a half marathon and then wore them in the half marathon but I have also worn them on trail runs and beach runs and they give great support and stability.

                Absolutely love these shoes. I was comfortable with the Precision and was disappointed when they were replaced with the Sayonara which I didn't like as soon I tried them on--too narrow in the toe box. I tried on the Hitogami and was immediately sold. They are comfortable and light weight--feel so good running in them. I already ordered my second pair in the new green color. That is how much I like them and I have only had my first pair less than 2 months.

                Background: 5 ft. 6, 118 pounds, 45-50 mpw average. I've worn the Wave Rider 17 in my last 2 marathons. Used to wear Mizuno Ronins on the treadmill and for shorter races, but the Ronins were discontinued for this shoe. I was hoping for a flexible, neutral, lightweight Mizuno with a lower heel height than the WR 17's that might work for 5Ks up to marathons. I've only taken them out a few times on the road for 3-5 milers, but so far they don't quite cut it for me. They are super lightweight, flexible, and responsive, but the upper doesn't have the glovelike fit I was expecting. They are slightly baggy in the heel and midfoot but tighter over the toes. I bought them in my usual Mizuno size and the length is fine; it's the overlays around the eyelets that are the culprit. I'll probably keep them as I like the ride but I won't buy another pair.

                  Love these shoes! I ran in the Wave Sayonaras but was having fit issues and then found these and I'm in love! I log a lot of miles and have run a half marathon and a marathon in these and they are awesome! They are light and fast but also have a surprisingly amount of support for their thin profile. Highly recommend!

                  Wanted A light weight shoe with neutral pronation. Was in the precisions then they dropped that line to the new Sianoras which I do not like. Gave these a try since I had nothing loose. Love them! Feel so soft with each step. The Sianoras were stiff and not cushy and my big toe rubbed the front. I will wear the Hitogami in Boston!!
