PicturePhoto Cred: Mizuno Running
Hello Running Buddies! How is your summer going? I know I've been a little silent lately, but I'm getting back in the swing of things.
After my last race I decided I needed a running break. I guess that means I took a break from my blog as well. I'm slowly getting back in the swing of running and blogging and what better way to do both than with a new pair of shoes?
#RunnersLoveShoes

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Enigma 5 Mizuno Running shoes thanks to Bibrave's BibRavePro ambassadorship. You can learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro & check out BibRave.com to find and write race reviews. As always, all opinions, typos, and silly pictures are my own.
PictureShiny and new!
Before I get into my opinion of the shoes, let's cover some shoe specs/facts.

The Mizuno Wave Enigma 5 is:
  • A Neutral Shoe
  • 8.8 oz
  • Available for Men and Women
  • Available in 2 colors for men and 2 colors for women
  • New sock liner for shock attenuation 
  • Built for runners who are training for long distances
  • Retails for $149.99

My Experience and Opinion

Picture
I got lucky and my shoes arrived at my house about 2 hours before The Hubbo and I left for the weekend. Whew! I was starting to get nervous that they would arrive after we left and sit on my porch for several hours. But luckily, they arrived and got to go on our weekend get away with us to Kansas City.

I think my cat, Gypsy, was under the impression that Mizuno sent her a box to play with. She would not leave the box alone. Luckily, she decided I could keep the shoes as long as she could keep the box. Lucky me. :) 

My first impression of the shoes is that, like all shoes, I needed to adjust the laces to fit my foot. I like that they are snug on the back of my foot. I have weird shaped feet. I guess all feet are weird, but mine tend to be more narrow at my heel and wider across my toes. So to make these comfortable for me, I loosened up the laces around my toes and that left the back of my foot with a nice snug fit. The best part about this fit is that I don't get tiny rocks in my shoe like I have in the past because other shoes have been too big in the back by my heel. 
I do think they might run a tad bit narrower than some shoes, so keep that in mind as you are getting fitted for your shoes.

The other thing that I noticed when I put them on is that it immediately felt like I was walking on memory foam! So much cushion and yet still supportive at the same time. 
Here's the best way I can describe it. 

Have you ever worked in retail where you stand on your feet in the same spot for long periods of time and stood on that small black mat for extra cushion? The inside of this shoe feels like you are standing on that extra cushion when you first put them on. It's seriously the best feeling.

I'm a runner that picks comfort over fashion EVERY SINGLE TIME so this is huge for me. Huge!

I've had the chance to run in them 4 times and to wear them walking around all day twice. All 4 of my runs have been my typical 3.1 mile loop that has everything from dirt, pavement, to gravel on the trail. With each run they just keep feeling better and better. 

I like that the shoe is neutral and I like that it is super cushioned. If you want a pair of running shoes that feels like you are running on a cloud, this is the pair for you. The shoe retails for $149.99 which I feel is very typical for a running shoe. 


These are a few pics I took while trying out my shoes.

The picture with the blue tile was from when we were in KC. We were walking around downtown in the Power and Lights district and I kept seeing these cute blue tiles so out came the camera!

The two pictures of me where I'm on top of the wooden beam was my sad attempt at being a shoe model. I think I'll keep my day job. 

The last picture is when I realized that The Hubbo and I wear the same brand of shoes, I immediately had to document it with a picture because that's adorable.  He's been a Mizuno fan for over a year. I guess I'm the late one to the party.

Mizuno is hosting #Bibchat tomorrow night on Twitter. It starts at 8:00pm Central Time and runs for one hour. Rumor has it that they might be doing a giveaway! See you there!

Question! How many miles do you run in your shoes before you get a new pair? 250? 400? 500? To the moon and back?

I have always been a muzino runner. I wear the wave rider type but the last 2 versions of the show have changed and as a result have been causing my right leg to have either heel/Achilles pain or shin pain. The running store told me they changed something in the heel box and I am noticing it. I may have to find another shoe because these are killing me.
Glad you are enjoying yours!

oh no! Sorry to hear that. These have actually been helping with my heel pain. Seems like each day it feels better.
I guess that is why they make more than one shoe out there. Everyone has different needs. Hope you feel better soon!

I love Mizunos, but every time I get fitted for shoes I end up in the most supportive Sauconys (which I also love, but they aren't pretty). I miss being a Mizuno runner!
