I will admit, I am a girl that loves shoes.
Especially those of the running variety!
That being said, you can imagine how excited I was when I received the recently received a pair of the new (purplish-pink!!) Mizuno Wave Sayonaras through FitFluential!
These performance neutral shoes are light, low to the ground and amazingly versatile.They are designed with a U4ic midsole, which provides resiliency, along with a smooth ride. This makes the Sayonaras an excellent choice for those runners who are looking for a minimalist feel because they weight much less than other traditional midsoled shoes.
The Sayonaras have a G3 SOLE which is lightweight, yet has superior traction, which helps to create a pure connection to the running surface. Additionally, the upper design provides exception forefoot hold and assurance at toe-off.
Since I just returned to running this week after 6 weeks off due to my stress fracture, I haven't had the chance to actually run in the Sayonaras yet! I am very excited to, though! Among my female running friends, I have heard RAVE reviews about the whole Mizuno Wave series! I will be sure to check back in with a full review once I take them for a spin!
Since we are talking shoes, we might as well talk socks too, right??
However, these are not just any socks.
I became best friends with my PROCompression socks during marathon training!!
These compression socks can be worn before, during or after a workout to increase blood flow to your working muscles aiding in recovery and preventing muscle soreness. I wore these for a few hours after every long run,and I really believe they are the reason I felt minimal soreness after all those 20-milers!
If you are an endurance athlete of any kind, I cannot recommend PRO Compression socks enough! They are currently having a HUGE Summer sale online at procompression.com, and everything is 40% off!!
