Mezamashii Run Project

I finally received my shoes from Mizuno Mezamashii Run Project.  Since my feet are long and narrow (I run in a 9.5 2A) and I require a support shoe, I chose the Mizuno Wave Inspire 8's.  They were on back order and to my surprise, I received the 9's!  Do you have any idea how excited I was when I opened the box and saw the color of these shoes?  I had just commented to my husband (after seeing them in the RR sports catalog) how I would love if these are the ones I receive.  With my narrow feet, it seems like the shoes that come in widths are boring colors.  All my Brooks are white base w/ blue trim.  So to have a pair of narrow width running shoes in bright colors makes me so happy!!

I ran 5.25 miles in them this morning and so far they feel good.  There is one issue, but I am going to hold off on commenting on it just to see if it works itself out.  I've been running in Brooks for years so it may just be that I am adjusting to a different brand. 

Expect a full review of this shoe once I get some more miles in them.  I'll leave you with a few photos.


  1. Nice! My Inspires are soon to be in need of replacement......wish I'd gotten selected to be part of the "project"......but glad you did!

  2. Cool. I love, love, love my Wave Riders. Ran GR in them(15's) and have just started testing the Wave Rider 16's.

  3. I LOVE Mizunos. I stockpiled the Rider 13 when Amazon had them for $45. Only 5 pairs still new in box....
