Rated 5 out of 5 by bp68 Awesome Shoes!!
This shoe does deliver. Sizing was regular shoe size for me. Do not put these shoes on until you are ready to buy they will spoil you!!

I have been running regularly for 2 1/2 years. I ran a 1/2 marathon in January. I did a lot of reading before I selected these shoes. This is the 4th pair of Mizuno's for me. I wear a neutral shoe, 5'51/2" and 113 lbs, and generally athletic. My good weeks are 25 miles. I haven't taken these shoes out for a run yet as I'm debating whether the Prophecy 2 runs larger than my others and whether I'll need a smaller size. I ordered a 10 the size of my other Mizuno's. My initial thought was the heel does not seem to grip as snugly, not as cocooning as my previous pairs. (I have a narrow foot, but don't normally purchase narrow in shoes.) There is a very slight bit more room in the toe area compared to my other Mizuno's. There are not those external overlays in toe area, but I believe they are supposed to be underneath. The shoe is very comfortable. I don't feel rigidity in the heel but it is firmly cushioned and not squishy. To me, I feel support under the midsole. The quality is very high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toddzilla29 Best running shoes I have ever owned!
I was in the Dicks store last weekend and found the purple pair on sale for this price. They only had three pairs remaining and one was in an 8. I typically wear a 7 1/2 but tried the 8 and they fit perfectly. This completely coincides with the all of the reviews that I have read that one should go 1/2 size up. Anyway, I had never owned a pair of Mizunos. I did not impulsively purchase. I left and did my reviews and practically scrambled back the next morning to get the last pair in my size before they were gone. I have been walking/running in these shoes every day since I purchased them. Hands down, these are the best running shoes I have owned. I feel that I can go for many more miles than normal. It is as if they propel you along, pain free. The purple pair is flashy and beautiful but after experiencing how wonderful these are, I am coming back within the week for a pair of black. The prophecy 3s are out and I want the black in the 2. Personally, I find the that the 2s are much prettier than the 3s and I want to purchase before it's too late.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay70 This shoe is the very best!
I had been running in the Mizuno Wave Creation. I didn't think there was a shoe out there that could beat them until I tried the Mizuno Prophecy, I am an older runner with knee problems. The Prophecy is like running on a cloud. I feel no pain at all. My daughter runs half marathons and was developing knee pain. She had been running in Brooks shoes. I convinced her to try the Prophecy and she loves them! She says knee pain is gone. Two ladies sold on the Mizuno Wave Prophecy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Running Again Mizuno Wave Prophecy 2
This is an amazing sneaker. Originally purchased a pair for my son who is in the military. He runs 6 miles a day. He had pain in his knees and feet from other running shoes he tried. The first time he wore them he was and still is pain free. He plans on buying another pair when he returns home from deployment. My daughter also has a pair. She has arthritis and running was painful. Since she got these sneakers she can run longer and is pain free. I also bought a pair. At 51, with arthritis there isn't much that doesn't hurt. The Wave Prophecy has allowed me to once again run. They absorb the hardness of the ground making running more comfortable and less stressful on my joints. I wore them to walk around Universal Studios. My feet didn't hurt after walking all day. GREAT SNEAKER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hines44 Best sneaker I've ever owned.
Although a pricey sneaker I have to say that these are by far the best sneaker I have ever worn....usually I swear by Asics....but now I have a new go to sneaker. I didn't even have to break them in and I work 12 hr days.....absolutely love them!! Will be purchasing another pair in my future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zball great shoe
although expensive these shoes were worth it. i run on treadmill, pavement, trails, and such. these shoes have been on just about every type of terrain and have performed well. they provide stability and cushion. they force you to run with a heel-to-toe stride. the proper stride made me a little sore the first day i used them on the trails. thus far i am very happy with these shoes. if they were not so expensive i would buy two pairs but i will have to wait.if you are an avid runner or jogger or walker i would highly recommend this shoe. for me they fit true to size (i.e. i did not have to go up or down a size/half size)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Beth54 This product was great at first.
Have been working out and running in shoes for two weeks. The shoes were great until last weekend and now the top of my foot is hurting when I wear them. I ran a 10k last weekend and could not wear them. Not sure what the problem is but cannot run in them any more.
