I'm sure it's a great shoe, however would NOT recommend purchasing directly from Mizuno website. The shoes actually run about a whole size smaller than their "FIT" application recommends. Additionally, when there is a need to return the item, you are on the hook for any shipping fees incurred. It's shocking in this day and age, with all the online competition that Mizuno doesn't honor exchanges and or free returns. So not only does my daughter NOT get the shoes she wanted, old dad is on the hook for the return fees. Disappointed.
Shoe is great but they changed the shipping price on me, paid nearly $30 to have a simple pair of shoes sent to me. Ridiculous! Originally told shipping was $20, once processed informed it changes to nearly $30...where did these things come from across the world?
This shoe has lots of grip and decent cushioning for jumping/landing. My feet are medium width, toe box wasn't too tight or loose. The arch support is moderate. They're a little stiff out of the box but won't be too hard to break in. I took the suggestion from other reviewers and ordered a half size up. I'm usually an 8.5 in regular shoes and a 9 mizuno fit perfectly. The only negative I have about the shoe is the outsole/heel area is narrower than most modern athletic shoes. I think for over pronated/supinated feet that could be really problematic. Overall, I love this shoe and glad I got it in the hot pink :)
They're pretty neat - my daughter's comment! Bought for 12 year old volleyball player, she likes them and said they feel light on her feet and she can move quickly. Order half size up, they run a little on the small side!
Great Volleyball Shoe! This shoe is great. Fits true to size and made to hold up. These shoes are stylish and comfortable. The last pair lasted two years and that was playing both school and travel ball, so practically year round. We looked at other brands but for the price and the quality we kept coming back to Mizuno. Happy we did. Hoping to get another two years out of the new pair.
Great performance shoe but could stand some padding in the back of heel area. Takes a lot of wear before that area breaks in enough to not cause blisters. Would like to get a pair of shoes I can play in right out of the box!
I love Mizuno shoes. They fit great, grip the floor very well, and move well with my body. However, it seems as though they're not built to last as any Mizuno volleyball shoe I buy begins to fall apart after about a year. I bought the Z5's in May of last year, and the seams have already begun to rip and I can see my socks through the shoe in some areas. I attribute it to a highly competitive level of play, but if I'm paying more than $100 for a pair of shoes, I would like expect it to last longer than a year.
