Recently I got a pair of Mizuno Wave Nirvana shoes but not a lot of time to exercise. I’m trying to hold off on wearing them too much because I really want to use them for purely running but with things like non-stop work at the office, late nights, taking care of kids, and a couple of recent storms in the north east here, I’ve been a bit screwed in the time department.
Regardless of all those things going on though I can share a few thoughts about Mizuno from a comfort wear perspective and so far Mizuno’s are unlike any shoes I’ve owned before.
1. The webbing inside and out is very flexible, comfortable and breathable. Almost like the shoe is nothing but a knit sock built on a cushion.
2. Eyelit placement is well designed and firm. TypicallyEyelits are just eyelits but usually I have to adjust how I lace, placement, etc and given that I haven’t run in them I may still have to but I could tell with other shoes I would have to right away. So far everything fits just right.
3. Footbed feels great and is very light. These shoes come in at just under a pound for the pair I think. (like 11.5 ouces or so?) extremely light, durable and the footbed feels like it’s ready to help you blaze a trail wherever your feet take you.
Once I get a chance to actually run a few miles in them I’ll deliver further thoughts but from a basic perspective Mizuno shoes are exciting.
