Product Review: Mizuno Wave Enigma 5
My beauties! I have an exciting new product to tell you about. Hopefully it's one that you're interested in trying! So without further adieu let's just chat.
These right here are the NEW Wave Enigma 5 by Mizuno. Over the last couple of months, I've had the pleasure of running in these sneakers and let me tell you, it was well worth it. The specifics of the Wave Enigma 5 are as follows:
The new Mizuno Wave Enigma 5 raises the standards in cushioning with the introduction of u4ic-X (pronounced euphoric-x), Mizuno's newest midsole foam technology that delivers the softest, most responsive cushiony ride. Combined with light and flexible materials to allow freedom of movement, the Enigma 5 offers additional cushioning with new U-shaped Wave® Technology to reduce shock at foot impact. This is the running shoe for those seeking the ultimate ride experience on a neutral platform with a smooth heel-to-toe transition.
Mizuno Wave Technology® provides runners with a stable ride from landing to toe-off. Features a Double Fan Wave with articled forefoot Wave Plate for the optimal blend of shock attenuation guidance and lightweight flexibility.
All of this to say that these sneakers are SUPER comfortable and make for a very easy run. I have trouble finding a prefect pair of sneakers other than my normal ones that I usually wear and I really go for comfort and then style because let's face it, who wants to run uncomfortably?
Another pro of the Wave Enigma 5 is they are super lightweight, don't judge a sneaker by its looks, trust me. When I first laid eyes on these sneakers I thought they were going to be EXTREMELY heavy and clunky, something I HATE when it comes to sneakers, I just don't like being weighed down. However these are totally the opposite what I described, they are literally clouds, yes folks i said clouds!
How many pairs of sneakers do you own that you can call clouds? If you own more than one, then that's amazing because this is my first. But another great detail I've become infatuated with are the laces on these babies,
These are not traditional shoelaces, it's a softer texture that isn't as hard as traditional laces and of course is perfect for when lacing up your sneakers.
For me, when I lace up my sneakers with traditional laces, I can feel the laces pressing my foot, almost like I'm tying them too tight. With these, I place the same amount of pressure on them and it's prefect. I don't get that feeling of the laces cutting into my skin though the sneaker!
While I did fall in love with the fit of these sneakers, I just wasn't a fan of the color. I'm a flashy girl and I love bright colors, or even colors out of the ordinary. So this blue/silver scheme disappointed me somewhat, but obviously didn't take away from the comfort of the sneaker.
Overall these sneakers are pretty much perfect for anything. I've used them when I stand on my feet for hours at work and it's great, no lower foot pain for me. This is my first time trying Mizuno sneakers and this particular style was a prefect fit for these feet of mine.
