Mizuno Wave Sayonara Review

Posted Jun 26 2013 11:55am
This is a sponsored post for Mizuno through Fitfluential.

Last summer I got to try the Mizuno Precision 12s as part of the .  It was my second pair of Mizuno running shoes ever.  I loved the lightness of them and have done several races in them, so when I had the opportunity to try out the Sayonaras I was excited.  !!!

The Wave Sayonaras are made to replace the Precisions. These y are made to be a light weight everyday training shoe.  At 7.1 ounces I would agree they are really lightweight.

They also dropped them down a bit with a 10mm drop from heel to toe instead of the traditional 12mm.  Personally I wouldn't mind if they dropped it even more.

First Impressions..  bright vibrant colors.  I don't want boring shoes to run in so they score major here.  I am not a huge pink fan, but there is enough purple to help offset it for me. 

Check out the fun pattern details.

 I like the way they fit my feet even better than my Precisions do.  They seem a little roomier in the toebox.  Once I laced them up and adjusted them on my feet for the first time I never had to stop and tighten or loosen once.  This is so rare for me with new shoes.  They just fit.

I can say that they feel fast, but can't really give you proof.  I am not doing any speed work right now due to a quad strain, all I am doing is easy running.  Hoping to add in speed work in another month or so.  Base building first.

I think these are officially the lightest shoes I run in right now.  The U4ic midsole is supposed to be 30% lighter than traditional AP+  they use.  Almost like floating on air.
 I can easily see this becoming a regular shoe in my rotation. I give it two thumbs up.
I am a little worried about small rocks getting in the small holes in the soles.  so far so good though and I think they would be easy to get out if they did.
I think Mizuno really got these shoes right.  I love all the great design details, bright colors, they fit like they are already broke in, super light weight and they feel GOOD to run in.  Brilliant.

 Want a fun hill workout?  Sure you do.  Hill training helps you gain speed and strength and these shoes will help you do it fast since they won't weigh you down.

 One of my favorite details is this on the back of the shoe.  It is like it is telling your competition sayonara!

If you are looking for a lightweight neutral trainer you can race in or just want one for training, this a a good one to try.  

They will be available in the and everywhere else July 5th. 

If you aren't a huge fan of the pink and purple combo it comes in a  that is pretty snazzy too.
