I wore six pair of the Inspire 8s and they are my favorite running shoe ever. The 9 is great as well and is lighter, but feels a little lower in the forefoot. If the Inspire 8s were an A+ I'd give the 9s a solid A.
Pros: lightweight, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable

I have wide feet, so most shoes start to constrict my feet after a mile or so of running. Not the MIzuno. Nice width, great support, and I love the color. One of my favorite shoe purchases.
Pros: lightweight, runs true to size, good arch support, comfortable, good cushioning
