I love new running shoes, it’s like an addiction. A healthy addiction, though, right? Once I find something I like, I try to stick with that running shoe for long runs, but rotate with different shoes for the regular weekly runs. I don’t often incorporate new shoes into my long runs unless I really like them since I’ve been burned (or rather, pained) before by shoe issues mid-long-run. Recently, I got a chance to try the new Mizuno Wave Sky running shoes, and guess what – they’re working their way into my long runs!
You may recall that I have been running in Mizunos for quite some time, and recently found my favorite shoe. My “Goldilocks”. I love that particular Mizuno model, the Wave Rider 20, and bought the exact same pair in another color once I wore the first pair to the bone. In fact, according to the running store, I wore them way too long. I was just attached!
So I was curious how the Mizuno Wave Sky would compare. The answer? Great!
The Mizuno Wave Sky is a highly cushioned shoe that replaces the Wave Enigma. I don’t think I ever ran in the Enigma, but I can compare the Wave Sky to the Wave Rider. They have a slightly different feel because of the difference in cushioning.
But actually running in them is very similar!
They have Mizuno’s cloudwave® technology, and the most u4icX foam of any Mizuno shoe. But I find them still pretty responsive and they don’t feel heavy.
Heavy shoes are my pet peeve after years of running in what now feel like bricks. These aren’t the lightest-weight shoes on the market, but that’s not what I’m looking for in a go-to half or full marathon training shoe. I need some support and cushion so I find they’re a great balance of cushion and responsiveness.
I’ve run in them quite a bit for weekday runs and track workouts, and even worked up to doing my long runs in the Mizuno Wave Sky.

I highly recommend giving them a try if you like some cushion but a really “great feeling” shoe. The run is very comfortable, and I started to grab these when I need a shoe for being on my feet walking a lot as well!

Do you rotate running shoes or use only one pair until they’re done?
