In need of some new shoes for your summer training? Our very own Rob Veldman from Gazelle Sports Holland has an insider tip for you:
“My go to shoe from Mizuno would have to be the Wave Rider. There’s a reason this shoe has been around for 20 years, it’s lightweight, cushioned, and fits great. The Wave Rider is a perfect everyday training shoe that functions well whether you’re running 3 miles or a marathon.”
Lake Michigan RTS Race Director, Cara Zerbel, is also a huge fan of the Mizuno Wave Rider. She elaborates on why this shoe is perfect for her:
“As a Gazelle Sports employee, I have the opportunity to try a lot of different shoes. A LOT. I’ve run in everything from top selling stability shoes, to niche premium racing flats. One thing is consistent- I always end up back at my Mizuno Wave Rider.
The Wave Rider provides the responsive run that I love, without compromising the cushioned support that I need. I’ve never liked the feeling of extremely soft, “squishy” shoes, so the wave plate technology that Mizuno uses is the perfect balance for longer weekend runs, or quicker weekday hill work outs.”
