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
If 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 light-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.
