I've been wearing the Mizuno Wave Rider 13's, which have been excellent. They now need replacing, and I thought I could simply switch to the Wave Rider 14's....but I tried them on but they don't feel good
Does anyone have a suggestion for a similar shoe to the Wave Rider 13's?
Hi, I just purchased the WR 13 and I love it to bits. I am running longer and faster than ever. Really excellent shoes so good that I am going to look for a second pair. Just wondering if they serve you well, why not buy another instead of looking for something else? Just wondering...
Sportfox: ....because they were discontinued in 2010/11 and the 14s were nothing like the 13s. I'm sure that was already stated above.
Hi Mr Boat, sorry abt that, I just bought mine two weeks ago but I am in Europe. I too tried the later Waveriders thinking as usual, the latest model should be better but the 13 fits like a glove. I am looking for a second pair but am also curious about the Brooks Ghost series. May I ask if you are still happy with the Adizero Boston 2s (I am going to check them out if they make them for women)? Thanks and kind regards,
Sportfox: They've moved on to Boston 3s now which I find are good; maybe slightly lower and firmer than the Boston 2s. If you buy Adidas it's worth trying some on first as most people have to size up by 1/2 to 1 size.
Mr Boat: thanks I'll look into them. I am encountering problems to get the second WR 13 so yes it'll be the opportunity to check another brand/series. I have slim feet, toe area usually has too much room whereas the WR 13 has been the first shoe with such good toe area fit. And I really like a light responsive shoe. I run around 10kms 3 x week, thanks for the tips.
I am going to throw something alternative in the mix for you as a replacement for the Mizuno Wave Rider...
How about the new On Cloudsurfer running shoes - the funky CloudTec system is soft and cushioned and also bouncy and light. I think that suits your requirements quite well.
ooooohh a quick ad break there from M@LR.... nice touch but no thanks.
