Reviews Mizuno Wave Precision 8

Mizuno Wave Precision 8

It’s easy to see why the Precision has so many fans. It’s a lightweight shoe rather than a racer.

The midsole depth is close to that of a standard training shoe, making it easier on your Achilles tendons than a lower-profile midsole. But the weight is kept down and it’s easy to raise the pace and get up on to your forefoot.

Mizuno shoes often have a slightly generous forefoot fit – which is the case here but it’s not sloppy. The transition from heel strike to toe-off is very smooth, and the breathability across the mesh-lined upper is very good.

The shoe is for neutral runners rather than overpronators, but it does still have a stable feel.
