I love running. I love finding fantastic running shoes that compliment my love of running. The past few weeks I have been enjoying my training runs in my new Mizuno Wave Rider 18 shoes. I really do love the improvement Mizuno has made from the Wave Rider 17 model. This is my Mizuno Wave Rider 18 running shoe review.
As a woman, I have a thing for shoes. Granted, my desire for pretty shoes are not the dress up kind… it is for fantastic fitness and running shoes. I have had a chance to run in a few of Mizuno’s shoe models the past few months. I love their Wave Kazan trail running shoes to blaze new trails with, and last year I enjoyed running in their previous model the Wave Rider 17’s.
These shoes really do run true to size. Make sure that you are properly fitted to know your size, or you might disagree with my review. Trust me, I know. Last year I was running in shoes that were a half size too small and had no clue (poor toes)… and now my feet are happier that I am running in shoes that actually fit!
Okay, where was I!? Ah yes, the Mizuno Wave Rider 18’s. The Wave Rider 18 can easily be a runner’s new favorite shoe because it hits the “sweet spot” for a variety of neutral runners with just enough support for a wide range of runners. When running, I feel the shoe hug with support around my heel. It provides support and stability while giving flexibility needed to run at a natural gait.
Mizuno adopted the inspirational influence of the Japanese concept of “ Hado” which is the intrinsic vibrational life force energy that promotes powerful transformations. Hado is executed in the Wave Rider’s sleek, dynamic design which relays the power and kinetic energy of running which harnesses the transformative possibilities in every run.
I can’t say that I have felt any special power from running in these super shoes, but I can share with all honesty, that I love running in these shoes. If you have seen my instagram post run posts… you have seen that I have been putting a lot of miles on these shoes. I am really impressed with the quality and feel of the Wave Rider 18s.
If you are looking for a neutral running shoe, you need to check out your local running store and give them a spin. Mizuno makes a great shoe and the Wave Rider 18 is another great shoe in their quality product line.
