Mizuno Wave Alchemy 7
Already a great motion control shoe, the Alchemy scores points for comfortable but solid arch support, and for its smooth, flexible ride.

Our Review

fantastic shoes , Am def a fan of the wave system . By far the best value for money product out there. Will certainly be buying more from this range Continue reading...
Very dissapointing, especially as they were the most expensive running shoes I had ever bought. Sometimes paying more doesn't always mean getting more. Continue reading...
The most comfortable and friendly motion-control shoe I've had (I've previously tried Asics and the Alchemy 6). Shame it wore out a bit quicker than I'd hoped but will be looking at the Alchemy 8 as a perfect r Continue reading...


 Ok so I am in the millitary and I run alot. I do not know to much about shoes but I am 4'11 and 112lbs, my feet are flat and wide. My problem is the stability shoes are heavy and bulky and I need very light shoes. Also I have no arch really and many shoes I find that are light but tend to have to much of an arch built into it and it gives my feet and legs cramps and too much pain to run in...it is a waste of money! I just did my last run in some NIKE shoes and I have blisters all over my feet someone please help I need some advice!

Do the Forces run to podiatrists? (Sorry for the pun - couldn't resist)

To be honest, you need to see a specialist who can diagnose your feet's needs and analyse your gait

Try Asics or Mizuno, they don't have much in the way of arch support so less to get in the way.

Asics are also nice and light, and quite roomy.
If you wear some good running socks as well such as twin skins it is less likely to cause blisters as it reduces friction.
An Asics 2130 or 1130 should be fine, and a Mizuno Inspire is likely to be good too!
