Advice for Road Runners: Mixing up the paces of your runs? Opt for the Mizuno Women's Wave Inspire 19 in the Blue Depths/White/Aquarius colourway. That's because these stability running shoes feel protective for longer distances and responsive at steadier efforts.
The Mizuno Wave Inspire 19 feels supportive and stable underfoot. This is a result of the Wave Plate design. Mizuno's signature technology adds more support under the arches of your feet and reduces excess pronation.
This Wave Plate also aids forward momentum as it increases energy return from the Mizuno Enerzy midsole. While the Mizuno Wave Inspire 19 midsole won't feel ultra soft, you'll enjoy the protective and propulsive feeling.
If like many runners you're looking for great ankle hold and a spacious forefoot, the Mizuno Wave Inspire 19 is a good option. In our experience, it fits securely around the heel collar and midfoot. This compliments the Wave Plate stability structure. However, the forefoot area lets the toes splay out.
We recommend the Mizuno Women's Wave Inspire 17 for runners who require additional support for excess pronation. That's because it features extra arch support that reduces greater ranges of motion.
The cushioning in the Wave Inspire 17 is more than protective enough for long distance running. What we like about the cushioning is that it also feels great when you pick up the pace. These stability running shoes are one of the few models that perform at a range of efforts. For this reason, they're great marathon training running shoes.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
