Several weeks ago, I received a rather cryptic email from someone named Sally claiming to be emailing on behalf of Mizuno and asking for my physical mailing address, but she said she couldn’t really tell me why yet–only that Mizuno wanted to send me an invitation to something. I was a little skeptical, but I gave her my PO Box information and pretty well dismissed it. Quite a bit of time passed, and I had almost forgotten about it when I received this in the mail just a couple of weeks ago.
I’ve taken them out on a few short runs, and honestly I believe short runs is all I’ll ever use them for. When I first switched to Brooks Ghosts, the difference that I most noticed immediately was the wider toe box. I didn’t realize how constricting the Wave Rider toe box was until I switched to something that wasn’t. When I walk and run, my toes kind of splay out. With the Wave Rider, and now with the Wave Enigma, they don’t have room to do that. Even though the width is perfect through the heel and midfoot, my toes feel scrunched up. I don’t think these beauties will ever see any long run action.

Even though they’re not exactly for me, thanks so much to Mizuno for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of the Mezamashii Project and to try out a new pair of shoes!
