          Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Paradox Running Shoe:

          I was an obsessive runner 20 years ago until 2 years of constant shin splints/stress fractures forced me onto bikes (which I raced for years with the same obsessive behavior). I have a very pronounced over-pronation and use custom carbon fiber orthotics to adjust for the pronation. Several times over the years I tried running with the same result...pain and stress fractures!

          Last March I decided to try again. A month of running and the pain was creeping back. I read about the Mizuno Paradox and decided to give them a try.

          Wow! No pain and the lightest, most comfortable running shoes...ever.

          I know shoe fit is almost as individual as DNA but I would recomend these to anyone with no hesitation.

          My only problem is that Road Runner Sports doesn't stock my size (7).

          This shoe is supportive enough that I don't need to use my orthotics with it, and is shockingly light for how much shoe you get. Former Wave Nirvana wearers will love it. My only issues are the short tongue and clown shoe looks.

            Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Paradox Running Shoe:

            I have always liked Mizuno shoes, especially the Wave Nirvana. I was glad to see another Stability Plus shoe from Mizuno. But I have not liked this shoe since I began wearing it. First it hurt the top outside of my foot. Next, the shoe felt "old" from the first wear. I never had that "new shoe boost" you often get with new shoes from this shoe. Now, with about 50 miles on them they are already wearing out with two colors of the sole worn away. This is a disappointing replacement for the Wave Nirvana. I will not buy this shoe again.

              I work out daily. After 2 weeks of trying I had to return this shoe due to discomfort. For a 2E is was tight and narrow. liked a lot about the shoe but had to give up and go for a different brand. Thanks to VIP I returned it and got a different shoe with no questions asked.

              Run on trails with lots of exposed roots so I have to watch my footing. The shoe holds up pretty well but again a few oz lighter would help my speed with it.

              Comments about Mens Mizuno Wave Paradox Running Shoe:

              I have always worn the Mizuno Wave Nirvana. I waited 3 months for the Paradox because I couldn't find another pair of Wave Nirvanas.
              The Paradox is super light but great support and Pronation control. My only complaint is that the Paradox running shoe was not comfortable right out of the box like all my Nirvanas. They were a little tighter in the box initially and my toes felt squeezed. That has really improved after 2 weeks. Maybe it just getting used to a new style.

                I try to get out everyday for at least two miles. These are my alternate pair. I rotate them with another pair of running shoes. It took a few runs before the started to become comfortable, and I would buy the same brand when these wear out.

                These are a great stability shoe. They keep you in line while running. I took them out for a long run and they felt really good until mile 15 then I started to ache from lack of cushioning. Stability-YES Cushioning-NO. I will be using these for short fast runs!

                  I just received my new Mizunos after a 2 month wait. I switched in the meantime to New Balance 1260's which are very comfortable but way to soft in the cushioning.

                  I was psyched when the new Stability+ were announced by Mizuno. I have only run in them once but the cushioning is firm but better than the previous model. I ran today on the treadmill and they felt great right out of the box. Great cushion on heel and forefoot...

                  Only bummer is that there is only one color available at the moment.
