The bright, checkered pattern of Mizuno Wave Elixir 8 running shoes is a sporty style unlike that on any other running shoe. Innovative SmoothRide™ technology creates a rocking chair-like effect, giving each step a smoother transition for easier propulsion. Ideal for moderate overpronators.

Upper: AIRmesh™ upper enhances breathability and flexibility. A no-sew upper reduces weight and minimizes foot irritation caused by uncomfortable rubbing. Suede synthetic replaces traditional overlays and reduces weight, providing a more secure fit. Dynamotion Fit™ maximizes in-stride fit and durability.

Midsole: Mizuno Wave Technology® dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a smoother, more cushioned feel on every step. SmoothRide™ creates a rocking chair-like transition from heel to toe. AP+ gives responsiveness and bounce.

Outsole: X-10™ carbon rubber allows for longer wear in high impact areas for increased durability and traction. G3 sole provides greater cushion and durability.

The March 2013 edition of Competitor magazine gives these shoes the Editor’s Pick for Lightweight Stability. “The updated Elixir is firm and fast enough to be a solid option for tempo runs or longer races, but still substantial enough to use as an everyday stability trainer for runners with neutral mechanics or those who are mild overpronators.”

    Comments about Mizuno Wave Elixir 8 Men:

    I've run in these for a few weeks now. They seem good so far. I am definitely a Mizuno fan for running. I am on my second pair of wave inspire 9. The first pair were awesome and still can be used. I bought a second pair several months later (on sale at Holabirdsports.....great service/company so far).

    Mizuno released the wave inspire 10s and so I bought those too but have not used them yet. I bought the Elixirs at the same time and tried them first....they have been great so far...and love the colors. I tend to sweat a lot so the shoes get wet and thus need at least 2-3 pair to rotate days.

    I think Mizuno makes awesome running sneakers...at least for me. I tried Under Armour...and I am an avid fan of their clothes and training shoes but they are far behind in running sneakers.

    I hope all find this review to be helpful. Normally don't do reviews!

    Comments about Mizuno Wave Elixir 8 Men:

    These are a great pair of light trainers - I have owned a few generations of them. If you want a little more cushion (and a little more milage), try the Wave Rider model.
