Mizuno Wave Rider 16

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Mizuno Wave Rider have always been a great shoe and this one did not disappoint. The wave rider was an amazing base trainer for me, I put about 500 miles on them and they handled it great. They are great for the road or the trail. The main advantage of this shoe is how light it actually is. Most trainers feel heavy to me, I tend to run in a lot lighter of a shoe and this one was a great base builder. If you like a ton of bounce in your shoes this may not be the best option. The shoe provides cushion but not so much that it makes it heavy or noticeable. If you want a great light weight trainer you can't go wrong with this shoe.

so why only 4 stars?

They made my feet blister kind of bad, Tons of other people that I know have no problems. Personally for me they were 4 but i'm sure for some they are 5 stars. I still liked them a lot.

Matt, agree with your assessment overall. But the blistering I think is just part of the game. I've had a few new ones crop up in these shoes, but this happens any time I get a new pair...
