Rated 5 out of 5 Good Transition Shoe
I am a competitive High School athlete who runs 30-40 miles a week interspersed with workouts. I used to run in Brooks GTS series which I loved for years, but the new model was somehow different and not to my liking. So I got these shoes with transitioning to a more minimal shoe in mind and so far I have had no issues at all going from a high support shoe to the Mirage. This shoe performs very nice in a wide range from 15 mile runs to fast paced interval workouts. Overall, if you're thinking of trying more minimal shoes, and you aren't ready for something like the Kinvara, then this is the perfect shoe for you.
And as a plus it is also very stylish as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 Solid zero-drop shoe
I was looking for a shoe to replace my Pearl iZumi Road N2s. These are great. They are comfortable, flexible, and feel good in stride. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good zero-drop shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NateDawG10 Great step into Minimalism
Overall, it was a good experience. I was hesitant at first to try a minimalist shoe, but the new style of running that comes with it works wonders. The shoe is very comfortable and doesn't take long to break in. It feels very fast and has a good road feel. The touch of guidence under the arch is ideal for mild overpronators like me. The style isn't too shaby as well which is always a perk (I have the yellow and grey). The only area where they fall a bit short is in durability. I started using them in mid-August, and each had a hole forming near my pinkie toe by the end of November. Considering I had to stop for about 4 weeks due to injury, that leaves little to be desired. Bashing aside, they are great for the transition into minimalism!

My son is a high school runner. This is his third pair of Mirage 2's. He has tried two other brands but always comes back to this one. I guess once you find a good thing, you should stick with it! This shoe is comfortable from day one. You don't need to "break" them in. Also the toe box is slightly wider which allows room for the toes to spread as you strike the ground. All the other brands would leave him with blisters on the outer toes from the narrow toe box. It's a great shoe and worth trying out.
