|Welcome to my Mizuno Wave Enigma 5 Review!|
It's a sign of the times when the first thing that you do when you get new running shoes is....Snapchat and Instagram them to all of your friends!
That's right. I was totally excited to try out these new Mizuno New Wave Enigma 5's before they went on the market. I have owned the Mizuno Wave Rider 17's in the past and really liked them. In fact, I pulled the Wave Rider's out of the box and put them on my feet and ran a Half Marathon in them. Talk about trusting the company. Mizuno!! I trust you.
I decided to try out these super cushy shoes on my 8 mile Saturday morning in Birmingham. The toe box was wide enough (I have a wide foot), the color was cute and neutral (I have a Silver and blue) and there were no issues with comfort or function. I do believe that runners will be happy with this new model.
After I tried out my Mizuno New Wave Enigma 5's on a long run, I decided to try them out for a couple of shorter and faster runs. I ran the hills of my neighborhood and WOW. I just cannot get over how cushy they are. Sometimes it's hard to tell during a long run...you tend to forget everything about your feet. Where I can really put shoes to the test is on the shorter runs. Again, no problems at all.

The new Mizuno Wave Enigma 5 raises the standards in cushioning with the introduction of u4ic-X (pronounced euphoric-x), Mizuno's newest midsole foam technology that delivers the softest, most responsive cushiony ride.
Combined with light and flexible materials to allow freedom of movement, the Enigma 5 offers additional cushioning with new U-shaped Wave Technology to reduce shock at foot impact.
This is the running shoe for those seeking the ultimate ride experience on a neutral platform with a smooth heel-to-toe transition.

I enjoyed these shoes so much that I will most likely purchase the Wild Aster/Silver/Watherfall pair also!! I love the bright color as well as the fit and function of this shoe.
Great Job, Mizuno!
