If you have been reading my blog lately, you know I have been struggling with a quad/knee injury that sidelined me for around 8-9 weeks. Not running was no fun, but I knew I needed to be extra careful when I did come back to the sport. When I was asked to try out the new Mizuno Wave Sky, I was pumped as the timing was when I was coming back from my injury, and I couldn’t help but think maybe some new shoes would help my knee to not hurt.
Well, I was absolutely right. Not only has my knee not hurt running in these new shoes, but I feel like I am running on a springboard. There is just something about running in new shoes that makes me run taller and faster. However, after five runs in the Wave Sky, that feeling has not gone away with the cloudwave technology in these shoes.
This is a neutral shoe, but it has plenty of cushioning, and as someone who prefers a wider toe box, I am happy to same my toes have not gone numb like that have in other shoes. I also really like the new thicker premium sock liner for a better, more comfortable fit.
This shoe comes in three great combos for the women, and you can check them out here. I have a feeling I will wear these out really quickly and will need a new pair, I’m digging the pink and want to get those next time!
QOTD: What do you look for in a new shoe? Have you tried Mizuno running shoes before? What is your favorite color combo on the new wave sky?
They look great! I’m totally in the market for a new pair!
I love Mizuno and have worn them for several years now. The color combo on these is nice!

I am in the market for new running shoes, I am so glad you liked your Mizuno’s. I have always worn Nike’s but am looking for something with more support. Thanks so much!

I actually think you got the best color combo. That aqua blue is really pretty.
I love the color you received. I loved this brand of shoe when I was playing softball! I am glad you have recovered well from you injury and hope these help ease back into running.
Will check these out! I need to get new running shoes for my daughter!
I love them!
