Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was a diehard Waverider 16 runner, and stocked up on as many as I could before they were discontinued, after the 17s felt like I was walking on cardboard. I finally wore through all of them and had to get a new pair of running shoes. The Waverider 19s are even better than the 16s, and I will probably be stocking up on these too. They are lighter yet more cushioned, and move with your feet very well. Many reviewers stated that they seem narrow... I do not have narrow feet at all, they probably lean more toward the wide size, and these fit perfect, I do not feel squished at all. I have always gone a half size up in running shoes and got an 8, and these fit the same. I run between 2-6 miles 5 days a week.
This is my fifth pair of Wave Riders. I run approximately 15-20 miles per week. Very similar to the 18's however the shoe lace issue has been addressed. My usual size 9 fit great. This is one full size larger than what I generally where in street shoes. Overall a great neutral running shoe.
Wave Riders are fantastic for my high arches and narrow foot. I tend to get a lot of aches and pains in my hips and SI joint, largely due to supinating my foot when walking and running (according to my doctor). I've tried nearly every other brand of shoe, but since switching to Mizuno Wave Riders, my hip bursitis and SI Joint problems have disappeared. These shoes absorb shock better than most "cushioning" shoes. Just be aware that they tend to run a little small, and more narrow than other brands. I wear a 7.5 (regular width) in these, but a 7 (narrow width) in other brands.
