My first video: Comparing Mizuno running shoes + a cameo from Bam
I love it when a blogger I follow for awhile makes their first video. I think it’s cool to connect their voice, with their name, blog + life I know so much about. Well, what they choose to write on their blog.
So I decided to torture you with a video.
Last night I was all hopped up on gummy worms and decided to do this video off the cuff. No research, no editing, nothing fancy, first shot and clearly not an expert. I tried to do a couple more cuts, but felt like a goober each time, so you get the dorky first one. On the other hand, if you & I were having a conversation over coffee, it’s a good feel for how I would naturally talk to you about running shoes. Let’s hope I still have readers after this.
If you’re having trouble viewing, you may watch it here.
A couple things:
- Apparently I like the word stability. A lot. I’m not real good with words, but what I’m trying to convey is the Mizuno Wave technology reduces and redirects the impact with each strike. The same concept as shocks on cars, but for shoes. Unlike SCB, much more creditable info on the technology here.
- The award winning Wave Rider is a neutral shoe with, in my super scientific (not) opinion have a great balance between cushion and support. After 5 years, they are still my all time favorite running kicks for long distances.
- The award winning Wave Sayonara is a lightweight neutral shoe with a smooth ride. They are a bit on the firm side compared to the Wave Rider. I think it’s great for runners who need more support and a slightly wider toe box. I dig the cushiony comfort of the Wave Rider if I had to choose, but I know this girl loves them so much, I think she might want to marry them.
- The Wave Hitogami is a light + low speed shoe with neutral support. The best of both worlds for me! They are also my current favorite for speed training and races up to 10k. After the barn is rebuilt, I might test them out on longer distances.
Do I have a new career in making videos or do I have a face made for radio?
Does my side by side comparison make you want to try another type of running shoe?
