    don't buy Mizuno because you will be hooked forever, I have Mizuno lightning 6, it's not just comfy but tailor fit to the contour and arc of my feet, it's just like 2nd skin to my feet, victor shb 9000 ace and sh A850 both are ok, but nothing like this Mizuno, I swear, Mizuno 's way to go.

    Here's my post on Wave Fangs:

    I'm not a fan of the Wave Tornado and other higher / heavier Mizunos. Good for big guys though!

    I have the Wave Fang XT 2. Cushioning is too minimal and too firm for my injured knees. However, breathability, stability and traction are superb.

    I picked a pair of Wave Fang RV shoes and are currently using them. As others have alluded to, the cushioning is firm, so reaction time is optimized but protection from impacts isn't as comfy as the wave lightning series. You're fairly close to the ground so push offs and lateral movement are fairly instantaneous.
    However the largest selling point for me, is that they're designed for wide feet. No more having to go up a half a size, just to get the width. I find when going up a size, I tend to catch the toe of the shoe with the floor and stumble. My old shoe victor shoe sh-980w, was wide, but stretched too much perhaps a sign that the shoe may be worn out. The WF-RV, so far has molded to my foot nicely and has retained its shape. Only time will tell if it's a good shoe or a wonderful shoe.

    So far as I'm breaking in the shoe, the performance gets better. However those with joint issues may want to look at the other series.

    Wow, 4E, now that's wide. I'll bet you can stomp out forest fires with those puppies. I stand corrected.

    The badminton (width) sizing is kinda strange: 3E is normal width, 2E is narrow and 4E are the rare wide models. Mizuno classified the RV as a 3E model but all the better if it is a roomy 3E .

    Looks like they've hit HK already but at $830 they are more expensive than in Japan . Think I might give this one a go ...

    I think the photos and in combination with the cut of the shoe (The black plastic forefoot reinforcement) make it look like its a mid cut. But in fact the shoes are regular cut.

    The RV's are pretty comfortable. It's a low profile shoe, meaning that you're close to the ground so you should expect more responsive footwork. It's also lightweight due to what appears to be heat bonded thin TPU to mesh, as there is some stitching but not a whole lot. The TPU resists stretching and add rigidity to the uppers. The TPU also helps to mold the shoe to your foot, which is a nice plus.

    I bought mine in Hong Kong. I haven't seen it in many of the local stores, however I haven't checked Tad's which usually is on top of this stuff. Maybe call Gary and see if he's brought them in.

    Another nice touch that the shoe has, is that the insole is mated to the shoe's footbed. The bottom of the insole has a outward honeycomb pattern. The footbed of the shoe is also a honeycomb pattern but is inward, creating a natural tongue and groove fit between the two components.
