I only buy Mizunos. I have the original/first version of the Waveknit (the last two years of Peachtree). These run small in comparison - lengthwise. They also run small in comparison to Wave Riders. They do stretch out and form to the foot so it eventually works - just takes some breaking in. They are much, much smaller than the Wave Inspires and Creations - length and of course width for these different styles. On the pro side; the waveknit allows for better foot control and its forming nature supports the foot while allowing for some flexibility. It takes a several wears to get them where you want them. Thin socks that do not bunch help or simply size up.
i have been looking for past few months, this is the best sneaker.i tried almost every brand , this is the only one that does not hurt my feet. pls make more colors, your choice of colors are so cheesy except for the black one. this shoe is simple but pretty.
The Waveknit R2s are great. I typically run in wave riders but thought I would give this one a try. This shoe is light and responsive. It felt a little small at first but the fabric is stretchy. I ordered my regular Mizuno size and didn't size up like some recommended for this shoe.
The Waveknit R2 is fantastic. I was running in the Wave Rider 21 before this and it is just as great. The toebox feels very comparable to the Wave Rider. Perfect amount of cushion. All around solid neutral shoe. My only recommendation would be to size up!
I first tried this shoe for work - I am on my feet all day - and loved them! As soon as I put these shoes on I could feel them forming to my feet. I then ran in them for a half marathon and I am so glad I upsized. I normally run in 7.5 but decided to try the 8. At first, while I was running the shoes felt tight, but thanks to the knit technology of the shoe they soon relaxed and reshaped to fit my foot. By the end of the race there was plenty of room for my feet as the shoes expanded just the right amount in every direction My feet felt secure and well-stabilized in this shoe.
Love love love these cute and incredibly comfortable shoes!
I love these shoes for a number of reasons: they really mold to your feet in the best possible way. They are lightweight but supportive and they are so cute, I almost didn't want to run in them. I feel like they have gotten more comfortable with each wear, which is a fantastic feature of the shoe! Highly recommend!
