Out of the box review: Mizuno Wave Sonic

 

Mizuno Wave Sonic.

Everything’s Gone Green

Awesome.  So far.

Structure which feels useful upon push off, while also providing stability and efficency while in mid-stance.

Not a single objectionable lump or bump, no seams or pressure points to concern myself about.  It feels as if I’ve been using it for ages and it’s day one!

Not too heavy, but definitely built to last, unlike some other racing flats in my collection, which feel as if too much use and they’ll be trashed in no time.

The feedback through the shoe is incredible, giving me a very clear impression of the impact upon landing, without anything too impactful.  In fact, they’re surprisingly comfortable and are beginning to give me the impression that longer runs would be fair game.

In the looks department, well – amazing.  I really like the lines.  The colour’s a winner, being good and loud, but not sickly.

All in all – a 4mm drop shoe from the Mizuno stable, which is fun to use, looks smart, feels like it’ll give me a turn of speed when I put the effort in and it won’t bite me when I test myself over longer distances.

So far, so good.

Full review coming next week, but as sneak peeks go……. close to perfection.
