Mizuno, ready to run.
Love at first sight is not particularly one tenet I subscribe to. Ask any of my friends, and they’ll tell you that I’m probably the last person on the face of the earth to believe that. But when it comes to the Mizuno Wave Rider 14, I hardly think that “love at first sight” is rubbish.

When I first laid eyes on a pair of wave riders, I immediately loved them. I knew I just had to have them. It was a selfish indulgence which I knew I deserved. Even before getting down to the nitty-gritty of the shoe, the candy colors they came in were more than enough reason to get them for myself. Suffice it to say, they were a sight for sore eyes.

On days when I’m feeling particularly emotionally rundown, I run to let off steam and to keep fit, so the Mizuno Wave Rider 14 is a perfect complement to that. It’s a shoe which hugs your heel with high-energy cushioning. It has high-tech flex grooves in the outsole. This minimizes foot fatigue.

A good running shoe needs superior cushioning and stability, and the Wave Rider delivers on both aspects. It has a wave design which allows for a springier step, transferring energy into velocity. It’s great for running those 5k marathons, as this shoe has flex lines designed with women in mind. I especially like its Mizuno Intercool feature. It’s a full-length midsole ventilation system which lessens heat and humidity inside the shoe.

With the type of support the Mizuno Wave Rider 14 gives me, I definitely won’t go around searching for another running shoe. So, I guess, shoes are pretty much like men: if they give you what you need, you won’t replace them for another. This is one love affair to last me a lifetime. ^_^
