If you could pick one over the other which would it be and why? Also, which one is more comfortable?
Bought both in April 2020 to try side by side.If you could pick one over the other which would it be and why? Also, which one is more comfortable?
I bought and use both equally. I agree with this assessment. The mizuno's to me felt more comfy when I first put them on. They were a little snug at first but are now much more comfortable after a few uses. The asics had no break in period for me. They feel a little stiffer than the mizuno's. I notice a little more stability from the asics. I like both very much but lately I've leaned towards the mizuno's for the versatility and my feet just feel a little better after. But I go back and forth. It really mostly depends on what clothes I'm wearing I guess. Can't go wrong with either shoe.Bought both in April 2020 to try side by side.
Wave Exceed Tour 4 is lighter, softer and less stable than the Gel Res 8. Asics are stiffer and have Barricade levels of stability.
The Mizunos caught my attention because they sit between a stability and speed shoe. I thought they did that job very well, the Asics however are just too good overall and only slightly penalize you with a bit of added weight.
I bought another pair of the Gel Res 8 and passed on the Mizunos for round two.
Can’t go wrong with either.
