On April 13th at our 6:30 PM Monday Group Run, everyone will have the opportunity to test out a pair of Mizuno Running Shoes.


Wave Rider (Mens and Womens)

Mizuno is a Japanese company that believes in creating a high quality running shoe.


Wave Hitogami (Womens)


Wave Sayonara (Mens)


What is wave technology?

Unlike other running shoe companies, Mizuno uses wave technology for their cushioning structure. Every one of their shoes has what's called a Wave plate, a polymer plastic plate that runs from mid-foot to heel or arch to heel. The Wave plate dynamically cushions a runner's impact, helping transfer the impact forces throughout the body of the shoe instead of in one spot. The ripple effect is similar to a drop of water hitting a pond.


4 Reasons to test out Mizunos at Monday's Group Run

  • LIGHTWEIGHT and COMFORTABLE-- Overall, their shoes are some of the lighter weight shoes on the market, and they give the comfortable feel of a hug around the middle of the foot to the heel.

  • SHOCK ABSORPTION-- The basic structure of the Wave allows the cushioning midsole to disperse the impact forces of running by spreading it out more evenly through the shoe.

  • SUPPORT-- Wave technology adds cushioning and support with a smoother heel-toe-transition. Firmer connection to the ground due to the firmness of the Wave plate provides inherent support in the area around the arch to keep you centered in the shoe.

  • ENERGY-SAVING-- Their shoes are designed to maximize and balance forward momentum, which leads to an increase in saved energy.


Join us Monday, April 13th at 6:30 PM to test out a pair and see for yourself how much your feet love the feel of Mizuno Running Shoes.
