Review: Mizuno Wave Sky

When it comes to running, I usually like to stick to the things that I know work for me. I have the same exact running shorts in multiple colors.. and sometimes even multiple pairs in the same color. I know that I like to eat a piece of toast before I go on my long run and like to eat the same flavors of gel during those runs. I guess you can say that when it comes to running, I get picky. I have struggled with various injuries over my young running career of the last 8-9 years and because of that, I get even more picky when it comes to my feet.

Long story short, I run in a neutral shoe with a custom orthotic insert and I recently had a cool opportunity to test out Mizuno’s newest neutral shoe – the Mizuno Wave Sky. It is definitely different from the shoes that I tend to run in but I kind of love it.

Design: 

Mizuno describes the shoe as below.

Maximum cushioning meets maximum comfort in the new Wave Sky, built for neutral runners. A full length U4icX midsole works in harmony with new cloudwave® technology for a plush and lively ride.

It is VERY comfortable and there is A LOT of cushioning. (I have not raced in them yet but plan to continue running in them for my easy runs).


Appearance:

The colors are cool – there are currently three options for both men and women. For women, the three colors are:

  • Peacoat/Pink Glo/Ceramic
  • Silver/Pansy/Castlerock
  • Blue/Silver/Safety Yellow

Price:

The shoes are priced at $150 – similar to the Brooks Glycerin 14 that I also wear.

Check out more from Mizuno!

Fall Activewear | prAna Review

This past month, I was given the opportunity to try out a couple items from prAna and I was thrilled. Disclaimer: even though the items were SUPER cute, they didn’t really fit me so I refuse to post my own pictures.

Their mission is to inspire healthy, active, and free-spirited living. Naturally this fits perfectly with my life and most likely many of yours!

lucia

The first item that I tried was the Lucia Sweater – perfect for a classic sweater! It is a recycled wool blend sweater knit with a brushed polyester back, making it perfect for cooler temperatures this fall and winter. It also comes in six different colors (if you tend to be more colorful than me lol).

kara

The second item that I was able to try was the Kara Jean. I REALLY wish that I had ordered a smaller size because I LOVE these pants. They are really comfortable and really flattering!

Bottom line: I can’t wait to try out more products!
