THEY SAY: "SmoothRide Engineered, TPU Parallel Wave provides optimal cushioning and flexibility for the neutral runner looking for a get-up-and-go daily trainer. Soft yet durable blown rubber forefoot outsole design for cushioning and flexibility." – Mizuno
WE SAY: We almost thought we got a trail shoe when we saw the Precision 11. Besides the cool looks, it’s superbly breathable, lightweight (289g) and perfect for doing speed intervals or for clocking a personal best time attempt. It’s hard not to like shoes from Mizuno; they’ve got a good amount of cushioning, boast an ultra-quiet run (sign of a good heel-to-toe transition) and are reasonably priced. It’s a good all-round shoe and probably the best we’ve come across so far.
Fit/Comfort: 8.5/10 — It’s a comfortable fit and the breathability factor definitely helps your feet from over-heating.
Cushioning: 10/10 — There’s a good amount of cushioning which is obvious even over long distances.
Stability: 7.5/10 — It is lightweight at 289g, ideal for interval sprints.
Design/Aesthetics: 10/10 — The striking yellow accent stands out without being a big eyesore. It’s acceptable as leisure wear.
Recommended Retail Price: $169
Availability: Available at Mizuno outlets.
