My feet hate me. For years, I'd strap them into inefficiently high heels and walk around like nobody's business. That was back when I worked in advertising (and went to bars), but I work at a gym now (and I rarely go out) so my feet rejoice. Because now, I live in sneakers. And I run in sneakers (obviously). My feet still hate me, but only when I take them OUT of my sneakers. Or when my sneakers wear out, which has been the case as of late.
I've talked about my hunt for a new running shoe before. In fact, I settled on the (bright green and pink) Sayonara 2. I got the chance to review the original Sayonara when they launched it, and I've been a Mizuno fan ever since. So when FitFluential offered up the chance to test out ANOTHER Mizuno running shoe. I jumped at the chance because, well...new shoes.
So enter the Wave Rider 18.
So what's up with that little silver logo on the back end?
I broke out the shoes a week before I ran the Grand Rapids Marathon as a relay.
might look familiar:
Also, can we talk about the colors? I mean. I'm digging the black for this time of year because, well...the roads are on the verge of being constantly dirty because of leaves, rain and snow. Also, the blue matches my new Garmin. #winning
Are the Mizuno Wave Rider 18 running shoes for you? If you're a neutral runner, they just might be! Not sure? Head on over to your local running store and get fitted. Ask for Mizuno specifically and see what they say. (Personally, I think you'll love them.)
Question: Do you run in Mizuno shoes? If so, what model? And what's next on your race calendar?
