The Precision has been a multiple medal-winner and it still performs with the best of the lightweight trainers. Version 6 continues with the consistent performance, feel and the Mizuno fit which, while not for everyone, engenders consistent runner loyalty. Mizuno has made minor revisions to the upper’s overlays and tailoring that result in more support. High-mileage runners will find the Wave Precision to be as durable as ever, thanks to the effectiveness of the proven Wave plate. It’s not surprising that one tester concluded: “Fits like a glove. Conforms to every bump on my foot with a nice, snug fit that doesn’t take away from comfort. Cushion in the heel and forefoot both very comfy. Not so squishy that you felt slowed down.”
