Great fit. Very comfortable.

Size 8 fit is perfect for me . No rubbing . Enough room in the toe box. Looks good . Feels like an expensive pair of running shoes.

Not the shoe it used to be, but still ok

good fit, comfy feel
The arch support has gone! Last bought Mizuno wave riders in 2008 and the arch support was excellent. Also these don't feel as cushioned.
A changed shoe from earlier versions, but they still feel comfy if not as well cushioned. I'm not sure how they will fair with marathon training .....but will soon find out

Very comfortable and the first pair with a wide enough fit not to bother me.

So comfortable.
Price quite high but can get for £75 if shop around.

Fine to begin with but cushioning went too quickly.

Fit was good, felt nice to run in.
After 300 training miles the cushioning was nowhere near enough for means knee pain reared it's ugly head. I am fully aware that I could expect the cushioning to last between 300 and 500 miles but for a 100 pound pair of shoes I was still disappointed. Returned to my Nike Air Pegasus plus 28 which have 500 miles already on them and the knee pain has gone despite no change in weekly mileage.

I guess I shouldn't have expected them to offer as much cushioning but having gone to a running shop ready for my first marathon as suggested I thought I'd have more miles from them.
As a 75kg runner I'm trying the Saucony Triumph 8s next. The Wave Rider 15 were ok but I guess I need more cushioning and greater life span.

Great Shoe, can't understand RW one star rating. 50 miles in first 3 days and they feel so comfortable.

Love the look and feel of the bright yellow version. Comfortable and great fit.
