As many of us runner are, I am very loyal to my favorite running shoe brand. Before I got hurt I wore a whole bunch of different shoes, whatever looked good and whatever I could find that fit. But after my accident and on my journey back into running again my hips and back started to demand a lot more out of my shoes. I cycled through all different brands trying to find something that fit good and worked well with my poor broken body. I finally landed on a pair of Mizunos.
They were the only shoes that didn’t result in me adding “foot and leg problems”to my laundry list of injuries and issues. It was such a relief to run in something that felt good and supported me as I struggled along through all those kilometres.
I have been loyal to Mizuno ever since, sticking mainly with the Wave Riders. I’ve seen many different models of this shoe, tons of new colors and my feet have seen a few different sizes over the years. I’ve even used my shoes as a conversation starter at races and expos when I notice other runners in Mizunos like mine. I’ve found we are a very loyal tribe of shoe wearers and runners.
I was super excited earlier this year to hear about Mizuno’s Mezamashii Run Project…

Just think about it, when we buy new shoes we bounce around, wear them in the store and sometimes get to run down the sidewalk in them. You can read the tech specs and listen to everything the salespeople have to say but you don’t truly know until you run in them. I love that Mizuno is willing to actually give out free shoes to so many runners to let them see what it’s like to run in a pair of Mizunos.
This summer I received an invite to the Canadian Mezamashii Run Project and very happily picked out a new pair of Wave Rider 15’s. They are so pretty (yes, pretty) and I was so excited to be invited to be part of such a cool running experience.
