Product Review: Mizuno Wave Ekiden
Recently I was sent a pair of Mizuno Wave Ekidens to review. I’ve been waiting all this time for the snow to leave Maine so that I could get out and give them a good try. I’m not going to go into a whole bunch of detail until I get some more miles on them, but I will share my first impressions with you.
The Ekiden is a zero drop racing flat that weighs less than 5oz in my size 9.5s. These are fairly similar to the Wave Universe except that these have just the tiniest amount of cushion, though not much. When running I can feel the road under my feet and it allows me to focus on my form.
Todays run was on the sides of the road, on asphalt, and dirty asphalt at that. I had no slipping or any issues at all. My feet felt extremely light, like I had no shoes on at all. It was wonderful! I am looking forward to many more Mezamashii runs in these shoes! Since I have a full racing schedule lined up I will be putting them to good use!
