I bought my first pair of Mizuno Wave Enigmas at the NYC Marathon expo in November last year. The phenomenal fit and comfort had me grinning from the very first steps, and I love how light they are on my feet. For Christmas, I asked for another pair - so now I have them in both color designs.
The only times I'm not wearing one of my pairs of Enigmas are when I'm wearing the Wave Cabrakans on the gravel (and often muddy) trails. Truth is, I'm turning into one of those people who wears running shoes almost all the time. My feet (knees & hips!) are so happy in my Mizunos that I feel as if I'm being punished when I have to wear so-called "real" shoes.
Dear Mizuno, one request please? I need more than two color/design choices in order to flaunt my greatest assets with a wider fashion range :0)
*Don't forget to size up 1/2 to a full size. If you've never been evaluated - arch, stride, pronation, etc. - by an expert, hit your local running/tri store. It's free, and a professional assessment that gets you into the right kind of shoe can transform your comfort and performance. If you've been evaluated but it's been more than 5 years, you might want to be checked again; like a lot of things body-wise, changes occur over time as we age. You wouldn't slack on having your vision checked, would you? Accurate fit and the proper type of shoes are just as crucial to your fitness health.
