I recently received the new wave sayonara shoes from Mizuno and as soon as I got them I put them on and danced around my house! New shoes are like a breath of fresh air! I have always been a Mizuno fan. I wore my first pair in my very first marathon and was SOLD on the Mizuno Waveriders!

A benefit of being included with Fitfluential is that I get the opportunity to review products from amazing companies. Mizuno sent me their newest running shoe- the Wave Sayonara to give them a go and review for all the HMR readers.


When I first put them on I was immediately impressed. The shoe is light weight (only 7.1 ounces!) and comfortable. I feel like they give me plenty of support like the Waveriders do but just lighter! They are now Mizunos lightest running shoe. Light enough that they work great for speed work and cross training, along with enough support for long distance runs!

I have done a long run in them, cross training and a track workout. All of which I felt great through!


I had great ankle and arch support, they have good cushioning and resiliency and plenty of room in the front of the shoe. It is a great neutral shoe.There is a parallel weight plate for shock absorption in the heel. They extended the heel wedge on the medial side for extra support.


Tonight I headed to the track with some friends and tackled this killer track workout!



It was a great way to end the day!

I always forget how much fun track workouts are. It’s a great change of pace from the pavement.

The Mizuno Wave Sayonara will be available on July 5th and retails for $119.99.  If you’re looking for a lightweight running shoe, that is great for cross training with enough support for long runs go check out these shoes when they come out next week!  Also check out Mizunos Mezamashii Project!
