      Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 Running Shoe:

      I think the people who reviewed this shoe poorly were mostly people who didn't like the changes from the previous model. I need a seamless shoe because of some *beautiful* bunions and I have liked the Nike Free in various models, but needed more cushioning and stability when I upped my miles to train for half marathons this year. I found the Wave Inspire 10 to be comfortable right out of the box and very lightweight for the amount of bounce they have. I was glad to find the grey color online because the white and blue versions I found in my local running store were too much to look at for me! I took them on a 9 mile spin this morning and ordered a second pair to stockpile - an easy decision at $68.

        These are my second pair of the Inspire 10. I bought the dark grey ones right when they came out. As others have stated about the tongue being short, this is true. I found the lacing on my first ones to hurt when running. However, I had to buy a new pair because my others had no life left in them so I purchased the red ones. The color is so beautiful and rich. I've never seen a running shoe this color before. Right out of the box I ran a 9 miler the other day and they felt great! Super comfy with great support and cushion. My previous Inspire 10's wore quickly so I"m hoping this won't happen to these. As stated with other reviewers, the tongue is short although with this pair I didn't have a problem and the lacing was comfortable too.

                I fell in love with some Mizuno trail running shoes right out of the box, so I wanted to try some road running shoes hoping for a similar love affair. Well me and the Wave Inspire's couldn't be more wrong for each other.

                I ordered my usual size of 10.5. The trail shoes in this size fit me perfectly. But these shoes felt almost a full size too big in the front of my big toe (but my little toe was right up against the wall of the shoe). I like a roomy toebox area, but this was too much. It was downright sloppy when I ran. And this extra room was affecting my gait b/c I started to feel knee pain about 1/2 mile into my run that didn't go away. I was disappointed b/c the price was right and these shoes were nice and light, but I can't run in a shoe that causes pain.

                  Comments about Womens Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 Running Shoe:

                  I am training for a marathon this fall. I was in love with the Mizuno Wave Inspire 8's, and I had a hard time finding a new shoe when my 8's wore out. At first, the 10 felt very different, but I found out that it was lighter but still had the stability. The upper is very breathable, and without the extra stitching and decorations, there are fewer places that the shoe can rub the wrong way. After doing a few long runs in the 10's, I bought four more pairs.

                    The Mizuno shoe I was wearing was no longer being made and the Road Runner helper line recommended this shoe. Only had 4 weeks to break in this new pair before running my marathon. No problem at all. I do use an insert which works great with these shoes. These shoes work well with my pronation and my plantar facitiis has improved. I will miss these shoes when no longer made.

                          I've been running for approximately 20 years and have been wearing and loving the Inspire for approximately 8 years. It was the perfect shoe, until now! As soon as I saw them, I could SEE that it was no longer my 'tried and true', and it took less than a minute on my foot to KNOW that it was no longer the same shoe!! Horrible! I was so mad that I wrote Mizuno a letter, AND hunted down two of the last pairs of Inspire 9s I could find! Aweful

                              I have been running in Mizuno Wave Inspires for two years. I'd normally get about 350 miles out of them before I would mostly move them out of the rotation. I was really excited about the updates to the 10-- lightweight, great looking shoe. I loved how they felt for the first 100 miles. Then they started rapidly wearing out, but I refused to believe it. A physical trainer finally looked at my shoes when I was having ankle and calf pain and said, "well, your shoes are totally worn out." So, a $100 dollar pair of shoes has turned into $300 thanks to being sent to the physiotherapist. I'm 100% done with Mizuno.

                                I bought these post-Wave Inspire 9's and really love them! They are lighter and more narrow than the 9's, but that works great for me since I have a narrow foot. I can see how these might not be great for people with wider feet! So far, so good, though! I highly recommend.

                                  I purchased these b/c Mizuno stopped making my fave, the Elixirs. These are a bit heavier than what I am used to, but I decided to try it.

                                  The shoes, although being lightweight, have heavy footsteps. My husband, who can't hear anything, kept commenting on my steps being so loud. These shoes are okay. They are cushier than what I am used to running in, and apparently louder than any other of my shoes, so I will probably just use them for walks or gym trips. I will keep on my search for shoes that compare to the Elixirs. Please bring them back, Mizuno!

                                    I'm surprised these are rated so low, I like them a lot. My only complaint (and reason for subtracting a star) is the tongue is a little too short so the laces go above them. This only happens on my right shoe for me and since I do anchor lacing the laces don't touch my foot and I've never felt them while running. I recently ran a half marathon PR in these! It seems some people are unhappy with the arch support. I have the custom molded inserts from RRS and do not have any support complaints. I have narrow heels and a wide toe box and I haven't had any issues. The heel is definitely a lower profile than the 9 but once I wore them in a little I think the inner padding on the heel depressed some and they don't feel like they're slipping anymore.

                                      I bought these because my usual Mizuno Wave Riders are not made anymore. Wanted to give them a try and loved the blue color. I wore these once to run, and the plastic that surrounds the laces rubbed a blister on my left toe next to the little toe. Very sore and uncomfortable. Decided to wait and give it another try, lacing them looser and wearing thicker socks. SO PAINFUL was that plastic piece that I ran back home and changed them to go finish my run. Hate these shoes and sending them back. That plastic piece is on another new pair of Mizuno's I ordered but don't seem to "DIG IN" to my foot like these.

                                      I have loved the Inspire series for years, and was SO disappointed in the 10's. They took a good shoe and ruined it. The tongue is too short, so when the laces are tied, there is too much pressure across the top of the foot. They were so uncomfortable, I couldn't think of anything else on my run. I changed socks, and tried to redo the laces, but they wouldn't work no matter what I did. Bad update, Mizuno!

                                        I had run in Brooks for almost 10 years when I started training more seriously and wanted to find some lighter shoes. These were recommended to me and I have definitely found a favorite that I will stick with for a long time. They are so light and fit to every part of my feet. I used to have problems when I tied laces too tighly that my feet would sometimes go numb. These I can tie tightly and they feel nice and snug and hug my feet so well, and I have no nerve-pinching/numbness problem.
                                        Although many others have been mentioning that these shoes wear quickly, I have actually found the opposite. The Brooks I had always had before I would have to switch out every 350-370 miles because my feet and knees would start to feel the lack of support. These I have worn for nearly 500 miles and my legs still feel great at the end of every run. During marathon training I run 50-70 mile weeks on these shoes.
                                        These shoes are definitely not cushiony or soft. They have a solid platform that provides stability and little to no soft, bouncy cradle. That is what I look for in a stability shoe so these are perfect.
                                        I already have another pair waiting in the closet!

                                        Why, oh why did Mizuno change the shoe from the Inspire 9? The Inspire 10 is a cheap copy. The last is too curved, the platform is too shallow and the tongue is so short that to run in it, all you can feel is how tight the laces feel on the top of your foot. Wise up, Mizuno. You changed a good thing. Probably will look to Asics or Saucony in the future.

                                            Right now I'm running 15-20 miles a week, but soon I'll amp it up to 20-30 for marathon training. I've been wearing Mizuno wave inspires for a few years now and i change them about every 250 miles. One thing that I noticed, and love, about the latest is that the laces are longer. I can finally double knot my shoes without having to tie them 3 times.

                                            I think the shoe could use a bit more cushion in the forefoot, which has been widened from the 9. Lots of room in toe box, heel fits well. I always find this shoe wears out very quickly- 3 months max use before things start to hurt.

                                              I was looking for a lighter shoe with support that I could use for my marathon. These were perfect. They're light weight, offer good pronation control, and are comfortable. I ran a hard course for my marathon and I never had to think about my feet because they so fit so well! I also use them for my faster training runs (which, for the marathon training, were up to 12 miles long) and they were great.

                                                  I bought these in 8D. I normally wear 7.5 C/D. The length was just right but they were so tight that they were painful without even lacing them up.

                                                    I love the product. I had gone through three different pairs of the Wave Inspire 9 and was disappointed that it was being discontinued. However, the Wave Inspire 10s are an excellent replacement. The cushion and stability are great. Also, I have narrow heels, and they fit perfectly.
                                                    The only thing I'm concerned about is running in the winter. They breathe very well; I can see them letting in the cold Colorado air once the weather changes again.

                                                    I run about 20 to 25 miles per week. My long runs are up to 10 miles. I was worried they wouldn't have enough cushioning for the longer distances but I was wrong. As soon as I put the shoe on it seemed to hug my foot in all the right places. Like a custom insert. Super light weight. My only complaint is they seem to be wearing a little quicker than Brooks did. I think I'll come back to this shoe again.

                                                      I am a dedicated runner (approx 50-60 mpw) who uses a variety of shoes training. All surfaces. The Wave Inspire 9 was my favorite shoe this past year. After wearing out about nine pair, I looked forward to the improvements of the 10.
                                                      This is not the same shoe. It is floppy on my foot. You cannot tighten the laces enough to prevent this. Granted, I have a narrow size 10 foot. But the Inspire 9 fit comfortably with a thick sock. I wore the this Inspire 10 on one run yet that was enough to blister my arches and heel.
                                                      I really wanted to love this shoe. But it just isn't for me. As always, RR Sports made my return as easy as my purchase.

                                                        I miss my Inspire 9s. I "upgraded" to these after I was unable to find Inspire 9s in my size online. I was a month into four-month marathon training and knew my Inspires were just about maxed out. I was wary about them--they felt/looked very different, almost like Wave Rider replicas and the Wave Rider has never worked for me. But I really needed the shoes, so I bit the bullet and bought them.

                                                        First month was okay. I didn't notice any difference, good or bad, even with the lighter weight. Then, early last month, I started noticing my arches were hurting and my fascia would painfully spasm if I bent my foot after a workout. Then I started seeing bruising on the top of my right foot (by my big toe) and now I'm seeing/feeling it on my left foot. This echoes the reviews already here; the toe box is clearly narrower and these shoes have TERRIBLE arch support for those with medium-to-high arches.

                                                        I've gone back to my over-mileage Inspire 9s, in hopes I can salvage my feet back to normal before the race. I am SO frustrated by these shoes. Ugh. Bring back the 9s!!!
