Rated 4 out of 5 by PinkRibbon Returned, usually buy?
Luckly on this third attempt to buy my special motion control or stabilty control shoes (first time not from Dick's but second time yes) I decided to order two pairs of differnt styles and hope one would work because for some reason the styles I need are not in store as much as for the person with nutural foot. I normally wore an 8.5 but had to return because they seemed small, I got the 9's and at first they seemed to fit but the design on the outside seemed smaller than the shoe causeing a rubbing spot on the side of one foot. I would like to think this is a one time shoe flaw as I normally love these shoes but also found out how hard they are to find this year. I did order the Wave Alixer with it and found they had a more seemless line along the outside so even though they are a stability much like the Wave Inspire I found them more comfortable. I am returning these alchemy's but would not count them out when the new model comes out in 2014 "Accourding to Mizuno" who I called because I could not find these in most running or sport shoe store any place. It would seem the last of the last are out there and maybe are not the cream of the crop? I look forward to next years model if they would come out with some girl colors for a change.
For those who are looking for a great shoe for motion control, normally I would say "yes buy these", but with the low availability of these right now??? Might have to search for a good fit if you are like me.
