F.A.Q. Frequently Asked Questions


How do I tell what model of shoes I have?

Please look under the tongue of your shoe.  The code will be located there.  It should either start with a J, P, X or K and have 10 characters.

How do I know which size or width to order?

The best way to determine your size is to simply check the size of your shoes which fit the best.

All the shoes on our website are displayed in US sizes. To find your equivalent size, refer to our size chart Size Chart link

To find the best shoe for your foot type, try using our Precision Fit Online system Precision Fit Online system link

Why don't you make this shoe in my size or width?

Though Mizuno strive to produce the most extensive range of sizes and widths, we’re unable to make every style in every size/width combination. Therefore, only selected Mizuno shoes are available in narrow or wide widths.

Why do you update your styles?

Sometimes new “updated” shoe models have new technology added to enhance the performance of the shoe. For other shoe models, there may simply be a small variation from the previous shoe model, for example, new colour, style or new midsole material. When we make a change it is designed to benefit you. We only release the new model after significant planning, followed by extensive wear-testing.

If you’re looking for a replacement pair of shoe, but can’t find it online, please contact our customer service team at 1300 796 457 or email us at estore@mizuno.com.au and we will be happy to help you find the replacement model that should fit you best.

I saw a particular product online or overseas that I can't purchase through your website. Why can't I purchase that product here?

As different Mizuno offices stock different product ranges, items that you might have seen overseas might not be available on our website.

Do you stock replacement insoles, laces etc.?

Unfortunately, we do not stock these items.  Please visit your nearest sports store to purchase them.

I really liked a Mizuno product I bought quite some time ago and can’t find it on the website. Do you still stock it?

Unfortunately, if the item is not on our website, we would not have stock of it anymore. However, you could try your local stores and see if they still have stocks of it.

How can I tell if I am purchasing authentic Mizuno products?

To find authentic Mizuno product, please ensure that all purchases are done via www.mizuno.com.au or authorised Mizuno retailers.

If you are sourcing items from overseas stores, please purchase from reputable stores.  While there are authentic products on websites like Amazon and eBay, there is a risk that you take when you purchase from those websites as you may not be dealing directly with Mizuno in the country where the seller is based.

Purchasing products from unauthorised retailers is done at your own risk. Be cautious of websites that offer substantial discounts or early product releases.

If you believe you’ve purchased Mizuno counterfeit product, please contact the seller to resolve your issue.

How do I clean my shoes?

The best way to clean your shoes is to use a soft-bristled brush (a toothbrush is fine) and wash away the dirt with a mild soap and water. Remove the insoles first. Then, allow the shoes to completely dry.

Do not put your shoes in the washing machine as the detergents used in washing machines are harmful to the glue in your shoes.

How do I prolong the life of my shoes?

Air them out after every run, change the insoles periodically and store the shoes in a cool, dry place (never in your car). But the best thing you can do to extend the life of your shoes is only wear your running shoes for running. Even wearing them around town will wear them out quicker than if you wear them just for running. And never wear running shoes for other sports. Nor should you use them for mowing the lawn, day hikes or soccer games with your kids. (You can use your worn-out running shoes for those activities.)

Use running shoes only for running and they’ll last longer and provide you with at least 500-800kms (if not more) of supportive, comfortable running.

How long does a shoe last?

We get this question all the time and the best answer we can provide is you’ll get plenty of kms in your Mizuno running shoes. Mizuno running shoes are renowned for durability. A good ballpark figure for the kms you can expect is between 500 and 800 kms. But each Mizuno running model is different with different materials and construction. Some shoes are more durable than others because of the materials. Also, runners are constructed differently and some are harder on shoes than other runners. Bigger runners will get fewer kms out of the same shoe than a small runner will.

But 800kms is about the max for most runners. True, some runners get many more kms, but eventually the midsole foam lose the ability to cushion and you will no longer get the protection you need to run safely.

How can you tell? If a shoe’s upper is twisted and the midsole appears to be crushed and brittle, it may be time to get a new pair. There are also other subtle warning signs such as an unusual ache or pain after an easy run. Often, it’s your body saying, “Go to the store and get a new pair of shoes!” Better to buy a new shoe a bit early than too late.
