Rave for WaveKnit 3
I'm a Mizuno shoe fan and these feel like they were designed for me! Great support on the heel and ball of my feet---where I usually feel the most pain associated with getting old(er).
These shoes fit great and have a lot of cushion. I returned them and ordered the new wave rider. I like a more responsive shoe.
Love Mizuno shoes. Best stuff around!
Very fast delivery
Very fast delivery and no issues. Great shoes
If you are looking for a comfy and cushioned shoe, this is the shoe for you. I loved the Mizuno Wave Sky 2 and the Waveknit 3 is an even better shoe.
Review of mizumo running sneakers
The fit is good, comfort is good. I purchased these to replace a pair of the same that hd 400 miles or so on them. They have the typical laces of running shoes, a synthetic material of some kind that gets longer and longer as you pull them tight to tie them. I use orthotics so can comment on the stock insole.

Good Training Shoe - Not Sure About Racing
This is an update to my post of 9/12/19. Today (9/14/19) I completed my first long run (26 miles) in the Wave Sky 3's. The shoes did not feel fast but my watch indicated I was just as fast as my last few 26 mile runs. I was running at about 1 minute per mile slower today (on purpose) than the runs associated with my previous post. My long runs are more about getting the miles than building speed. On the positive side my feet are not as sore as they have been after previous long runs. I forgot to mention in my previous post that I actually weighed the shoes on an accurate portion scale. I found the Sky 3's to be 0.1 oz heavier than the original Sky. I would think Mizuno would have tried to make them lighter. That seems to be the trend with other manufacturers. So for now the Sky 3's will just be training shoes for long runs. I still need to find a shoe for Boston.
Not convinced yet!
I just purchased the new Wave Sky 3 from Fleet Feet last week (9/7/19). I have been using Mizuno Wave Riders for over 10 years and started running the Enigma (the Sky predecessor) in 2017. So far I have an 8 mile strides workout and a 16 mile easy run in the new Wave Sky 3's. I generally use the Wave Riders for shorter runs under 10 miles and the Wave Sky for longer runs but I was anxious to try the new Sky 3's. The Wave Sky 3 is a little wider in the heal and does not fit as snug as the original Sky or the Wave Riders. This left me a little apprehensive but as my salesman explained "You are not going to play basketball or tennis in this shoe" it made sense. They seemed snug enough while I was running but I was still a little nervous about making quick moves left or right. It's yet to be determined how they will perform on the corners during track workouts. I definitely had to use the last lace holes to secure them to my feet. A feature I have never used before on any other Mizuno shoe. I started my warm-up without using the last hole and the shoe almost fell off. For the run there was most definitely a different feel. I did not feel the shoe launching my heel forward as I was accustomed to with all of the other Wave shoes I have owned. On the upside I could certainly feel the cushioning more with the wave plate removed. My biggest concern right now is speed. I am training to run Boston in 2020 and these shoes feel slower and my watch says they are slower by 15 seconds per mile. When my legs get tired I count on the wave plate to rotate my foot and launch me forward to maintain my stride length. So far I feel like I really have to work to keep my stride length where I want it. Yesterday was one of my slowest 16 mile runs all summer. This comes at a time when I should be getting faster. I'll be wearing these for my 26 mile run this weekend. I'll update this post at that time.
