Win Mizuno Running Shoes

Mizuno Wave InspireIf you’re a runner, today’s your day, because you have a chance to win Mizuno running shoes.

I must have had at least a zillion pairs of sneakers in my life. (Ok, I do exaggerate a bit…but realistically, I’ve worn well over a thousand.)  As a sports fanatic that combines road running, trail running, multisport events and CrossFit, I’ve worn a  lot of athletic shoes.

As a bit of a sneaker snob, I’m thrilled to have the  opportunity to give away one of my favorite brands of running shoes—Mizuno—for the holidays and to help you gear up for the new year.  We have five pairs of the award-winning Mizuno Wave Rider 16 or Wave Inspire 9 shoes to give away.

Mizuno isn’t the flashiest footwear company and they don’t spend millions on advertising. They just make great footwear and rely more on word of mouth marketing. I always say it’s a shoe for real runners or real athletes not posers. I also like that on their website, they have a “Precision Fit” tool that guides to the perfect shoe for your feet.

Wave Inspire 9

Wave InspireIf you want a shoe that offers a “neutral” fit, this is one of the best.  It balances lightweight feel, sculpted fit and exquisitely smooth ride. By maximizing the responsive action of Mizuno’s innovative Wave plate technology, the Wave Rider continues to define and create the brilliant run experience. The SRP for Inspire 9 is $115.00.

Wave Rider 16

This shoe is for those who need support but also want flexibility. The Wave Inspire’s glove-like fit makes it seem to disappear from your foot to create a MIzuno Wave Riderlight-as-air ride all while providing the critical stability and protection you need for miles of brilliant running. The SRP of the Wave Rider 16 is $115.00.

Kinda cool that you are giving away a pair of the Wave Rider 16’s because those were the ones that I have been eyeing for a few months. Winning a pair of these would mean everything to me, as I’ve decided to train for my first half marathon, which is in May, 2013 and ideally I would love to have a pair of Wave Rider 16’s help me make the 13.1 mile trek! I’ve liked Mizuno on Facebook for a long time and also follow you on Facebook, Twitter and subscribe to your newsletter. PLEASE pick me for this, as it would truly mean the world to me and I would genuinely appreciate the shoes and put them to a lot of good use. Thanks!!!

    I will continue liking and tweeting to accumulate as many entries as I possibly can!!

    I NEEEEEED new running shoes!!! I have just finished physical therapy for a back/knee issue and I need to ease myself back into running. I am a “late” beginner, having just started running at the age of 34. I was doing very well, running about 4-5mi/day and walking another 4-5mi. Then I was sidelined by an old, recurring knee issue. Not sure if the knee screwed up the back or the back exacerbated the knee, but either way, it resulted in months of inactivity and pain and the gaining back of about 40lbs. I’ve dropped 27 of it, but if I want to get rid of the last 13lbs, I need to get back to exercising regularly (preferably without pain!!). A new pair of running shoes would go a long way to making that happen!

    Thanks! Great giveaway!!

  48. I liked both, followed on twitter and love the shoes!

  49. What a wonderful giveaway. I walk daily and will start running soon. I liked facebook for Mizuno and appetite for Health.

  93. Lori Williams says:

    I like you and mizuno on Facebook and I follow you on Twitter. Thanks!

  94. I can honestly say that I have heard of the brand but never tried them. This year I have taken that step (or run) into getting myself back into my running form. I have started with the couch to 5k program and very proud to say that I have done 2 5k’s this year (one being a partial spartan run). I already have runs scheduled for next year.

    I never realized how important shoes are when it comes to running. I thought I could just go out and buy a pair of shoes and off I go. I was so wrong. Shoes are so important and I found out the hard way by feeling aches and pains as I ran. Fortunately, I now can say that I run farther, with no pain and looking forward to taking on this next year full steam ahead!!

    I would love to try this brand as it could be my new favorite!! :)

  95. Lucia Alzag says:

    I am an avid runner and I’d like to have a pair of lightweight stability shoes.

  96. I already meet the requirements. I would love to win these shoes as running is on my list of things to start, and I’m clueless as to what shoes to get. I’m off to share some health posts. Thanks for the giveaway!

  97. today i want to thank you! i started searching articles just to post, but found some great reads! i posted the motivational quotes, the article on sleep and the one on intuitive eating. thanks for encouraging me to read up!!

  98. While these are called running shoes, I will actually be using them for serious WALKING!

  104. Jonathan Buffington says:

    Soon after beginning to run I realized just throwing on a pair of shoes and “hitting it” does not bode well for a successful run, after my first run I b-lined it to the shoe store. Runnig doesn’t have to hurt, but I like many others tend to learn the hard way that if you are going to run….please get some good shoes first! These shoes are awesome, would love a pair AFH.

  105. I shared Dont Ditch These Five Foods post

  106. I walk/run several miles a day…these would be great!

  125. I would love to have a pair of Mizunos. I have been checking them out for awhile and think they would be so comfortable and make my feet happy.

  126. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try a pair of the Mizunos!!! My sister absoutley loves hers, and I recently got back into crossfit and running and am trying to find shoes that won’t kill my feet. I am overweight and have tried Asics and now onto Brooks, however I am still having pain in my feet. I went to the Mizuno website to read up on these shoes to see if they would be a good fit for me. I was encouraged to read that “When your foot touches the ground, Wave actually reduces and redirects impact forces away from your foot. Wave acts much like your car’s suspension.” I also took the Precision Fit test to see if there was a shoe that would be good for me. (Surprised to see that the pinky is involved in this test). I would love to try these shoes out to help me with getting back into shape.

    I liked and shared a post.

  290. Yes, Mike, they are awesome!!! I read their blog on a regular basis and soak up the information in them. This is seriously the most fantastic giveaway and I’m just so happy to have been chosen for a pair of Mizuno Wave Riders 16’s! I was just at the running store the other day and tried a pair of these on and fell in love with them. Such an amazing shoe. Mizuno is my favorite! Tonight I officially registered and paid for my registration for my first half on May 18, 2013. Super excited to train and have these Wave Riders take me across the finish line after 13.! I’m so happy you won, Mike!!! I love the blue/pink shoes and also the purple/white ones, too. Thanks again for choosing me as one of your winners! I can’t thank you enough!

  297. Lyndi Malarchuk says:

    **********THANK YOU!!!!********

    Sorry I haven’t stopped by before now to say thank you, but I’ve been RUNNING!! The Mizuno Wave Inspire 9 sneakers are AMAZING! I seriously can’t say enough great things about them. This is the 3rd pair of Mizunos I’ve had, but the others were volleyball sneakers. The Wave Inspire 9 sneakers are super light, fit like they were made for my feet, look spectacular, and feel incredible! Perfect balance, perfect amount of cushioning, perfect support. I am beyond thrilled with them. Before I had gotten these sneakers, I hadn’t been able to run for almost a year because of a back/knee issue, only walk on the treadmill short distances. Now I’m walking more than 3 miles at a time with about 10 minutes of running peppered throughout. I working my way up slowly, but I’m hoping to be back to 5k form by spring so I can start running outside. Thank you again! I am so grateful to you!
