About this deal

Best price I could find for these, around £20 below the competition. Also at the time of posting all these quite normal sizes are in stock. This is a mid-range stability running shoe, which should help people with joint problems. Decent reviews: runningshoesguru.com/202…ew/

A bit more sensible-looking than most "engineered" running shoes, which I like. I haven't tried them yet but looking around I see a lot of people saying they run half a size smaller than most brands, so bear that in mind when ordering. I have gone for 9.5 (44). I am a 9 in Brooks. I will try to remember to come back and update this when they arrive in about a week.

£45.00 + £4.99 delivery (or delivered to a Sports Direct store). Top Cash Back offering 6.3% if it's your first Sports Direct order. 3.15% for existing customers.

"These Mizuno Wave Horizon 4 Running Shoes are ideal for high mileage runners who need optimum support yet want a floating feeling. These lace-up trainers are constructed with XPOP PU foam and Mizuno Foam Wave for excellent cushioning, SmoothRide engineering to stabilise the foot during transition and AeroHug fit for a comfortable and secure run. The modern style is complete with Mizuno branding."

    Update: The estimated delivery was 7 days but they actually arrived in 2. Well done Sports Direct and Evri. That's not said very often, I guess!

    Looks-wise they are really nice. They are a little flashier than the pictures - the blue is quite bright - but still understated enough.

    Trying them on, they are quite stiff. They get a good grip on your foot with no room for slipping. The heel and sole is very comfortable. The toe box is narrower than I'm used to with Brooks. They may just need some time to break in, though. I'm glad I got the 9.5 - a 9 would have been too narrow, I think. I might even have gone for a 10 in store to see if they would be a little more forgiving - but I've decided I won't return these. I'll see if they relax and mould to my foot a bit with some wear. A 10 could be too long and it's a hassle with posting. To be fair, I was wearing thick sports socks - although, I wear the same socks just fine in my Brooks size 9-Ds.

    Still with the big socks on, I went for a gentle run, 20 minutes, to see how they were. There were no painful spots and they held my feet solidly. They are a bit heavy-feeling with no spring - but they are primarily intended for stability over performance so that's normal. I didn't feel any complaints from my "bad" knee. They're also new and may loosen up a bit later. Towards the end of the run, I was starting to feel a little rubbing against the top of my feet, just before the base of the 4th toes. A bit odd. Maybe the newness, maybe the width, not sure. I plan to wear them to walk around in with regular socks over the next week and see what happens when they're broken in a little.

    Final update - after a week of walking they have relaxed slightly, are comfortable and do not rub my feet. I'm happy with the size. When running they do put pressure on the top of my foot at the point where they flex, just in front of the laces. I described this above as feeling rubbing against the top of my feet near the 4th toes. This has not developed into a sore spot, probably thanks to the cushioning of the inner lining. I feel like it also may relax a bit with further use. Happy with this purchase as a walking/general use stability trainer. I'm going to keep using my Brooks Glycerin GTS 20 for longer runs. They are undoubtedly better but of course they cost significantly more.

    Update on the TopCashBack claim. It tracked at £37.50 with cashback of £1.17 (about 3%). I have lodged a claim as obviously the purchase amount is underdeclared and the cashback of ~3% is less than the existing customer offer at the time I ordered, and I was a genuine new customer making my first order. The correct cashback for these, for a new customer, should be £2.84. (edited)
