The responsiveness of the shoes is fantastic. While the flexibility is not the best, they just feel bouncy on different surfaces which makes them reliable for daily running. The added support from the midsole plate also makes the shoes less flexible. You don’t really feel this until you start running at a faster pace while off the beaten path, like on grass. But apart from this situation, they react really well and they can be among the top shoes to consider for versatility. The looks are impressive as well as they come with modern Mizuno aesthetics.
