I've been in Mizunos for awhile, with the last 7 months in Wave Creations, though I recently added some Riders into rotation. I realized I've been having odd aches and pains this week (I was using only the Creations through the mud/rain/loveliness that's been going on here in the mid-atlantic). I checked my mileage - I have 383 on the Creations and I think they are shot. Last time, I pushed the Creations to 400-450 and probably shouldn't have. 380 doesn't seem like a lot of miles, especially since I'm a lightweight runner and the Creations aren't cheap.
So what kind of Mizunos do you wear and how many miles do you get out of them?
I had some Wave Creation 4 shoes a couple years back that I got only about 300 miles out of before they started hurting my feet (fortunately I got them cheap on closeout). We had a thread on RW Shoe forum awhile back about the Wave Riders and low mileage, so it may be that you just don't get the miles from these shoes.
Thanks. Mizunos fit my feet really well, but I'd really like to get more miles out of them!
I had the Riders but gave them away after 5 runs. TOO stiff.

If they remain TOO STIFF for more than four hours, consult your physician
I get 700-800 miles on my Wave Riders, but I'm easy on shoes I guess. I used to get about 600 on Nike Pegasus, but I've gotten as few as 300-350 on lightweight trainers (Saucony Swerve, Nike Spans). Mizunos just work for me - I love 'em!
I just retired a pair of Inspires with 400 miles. I have another pair of Inspires with about 250 and a pair of Mercurys with 350, both still going strong.
This is comparable with mileage that I get from other shoe brands.
300-ish all mizuno I've tried precision, creation, wave rider and elixer......so I buy the less expensive elixer
I'm currently in Mizuno Alchemy, though I can also wear the Maverick.
I've been a Mizuno fan for years, but I never get more than 350 miles out of them
And I weigh 108.
Gotta go with what works though. I run in Brooks Adrenaline also, and they get about 400.
Mizuno Nirvana is my current shoe of choice. Nirvana is the high end stability shoe in their line-up. Unfortunately, I seem to max out at about 300 miles or even a bit less before I need to change.
I seem to have a hard time finding a shoe that fits well and gets good mileage. The last two Asics models I tried (Nimbus and Cumulus) were a no-go as I developed minor foot and knee tweaks shortly after using them. I may need to experiment with brooks or new balance as an alternative. While I really like the fit/feel of the Nirvana, the absolute price is steep (even when getting last years model on E-bay) and the cost/mile does not seem to be competitive. I have heard others say that Mizuno tends to wear out a bit quicker than some other brands.
I wear Wave Inspires and I'm not the happiest customer.
I think they have around 300ish or so, but the shoe drives me nuts!

Love my riders but 400 is about my limit before I start to get aches. They fit my feet perfectly so I'll stick with them but I wish I could get more out of them.
I have a pair of Riders that's over two years old. I run 40-60 miles per week. Maybe they've lost some cushioning (ya think?) but they still work for me on my shorter runs, especially the runs I do on the trails. They still have the little "X" texture thingies molded on the X-10 rubber on the soles. Just won't wear out. NASA should insulate the Space Shuttle with X-10 rubber instead of those tiles. When they finally poop out I'm sending them to Mizuno so they can put them on display.
I rotate between my Creations and Riders and only get around 300 miles from each. I can't find another shoe that fits as well. In fact, the Creation is feeling extra clunky to me. I don't know what to make of that.
The Creation is extra clunky! Seriously though, 300-400 is pretty normal...if you only get 100-200 there's probably a problem with your shoe or gait or something. But yeah, some people get way more than others.
