Mizuno.... (Read 3818 times)

    thanks.  I'll look at both

      I have a pair of NB890V4. Very comfortable shoe, but I don't think the toe box is very wide. They're the shoes I brought on vacation and I miss my Mizunos. They might work out for you though. I also find the outersole is much softer than that of Mizunos. I supinate a bit and it barely shows underneath all my Mizunos, but there's severe wear under the 890V4 where my foot strikes the ground after only 200 miles.

       

      I think the New Balance 890s are around 8mm drop.

        Can't wait to try them. I'll probably try to get a few pairs of original Sayonaras if I get a good deal though.

         

        I got the Sayonara 2s last week.  OMG.  They really improved the Sayonaras.  Love them.

          I have the Mizuno Wave Creation 13.  I bought them about 2 years ago, and they have over 435 miles on them.  I have also lost weight, going from ~150 to 116.  How many miles do these shoes usually last through, and what shoes would you recommend I get next?  Shoe finder does not recommend this style, I'm guessing because my weight is so much lower now.  I am not having any issues with shin splints or injuries.

            I have & like the New Balance 890 & agree that the toebox is not especially wide.  The shoe was almost perfect for me, but it really broke down before 400 miles. They're in rough shape, no tread anymore for traction, multiple holes, it's sad.

            I have Saucony Grid Rapture with a similar fit but a bit more room in the toes, and the NewBalance 750 with a similar fit but even more room in the toes.

              I can't speak to the durability since I've never tried the Creation (will vary from individual to individual anyway), but what are you looking for in a new shoe? I assume something lighter, so the Wave Rider is worth a look. It seems like a trip to your local running store is in order so you can talk it out with them and try on a bunch of options.

                Durability will vary from one person to the other as B+ mentioned. I now weigh in the low 170s but used to be in the mid 180s. 2 pairs of Riders 16 lasted me roughly 600 miles each. I went through one pair of Sayonaras, and they lasted less than the Riders. Low 400 miles.
