Mizuno Wave Hayate – #BlazeNewTrails

All opinions are my own.



The word “Hayate” means “swift, like a whirlwind”

As a part of a campaign with Fitfluential & Mizuno, I was able to take the new women’s Wave Hayate trail shoes for a spin, and I can tell you from experience that they live up to their name.

I’ve taken the Hayate’s on quite a few trail runs and I love how they fit my feet. They are super lightweight not to mention I really like their overall look! The Hayate’s also have really great grips on the bottom of the shoe which allow me to plant my feet on crazy terrain and not worry about slipping – they also work well on changing terrains! I’ve gone from dirt to rock, to road, to grass and back and they didn’t even allow me to break my stride.

The Hayate’s are also low rise {which I enjoy} and are able to adapt quickly for fast off-road racing or training. On my runs with the Hayate’s they have provided great protection and stability required for any great trail running experience.

The dynamic look of the shoe with Kanji script was made to evoke a feeling of heritage and well-worn durability.

A little more about the Mizuno Wave Hayate from the website: The concave Wave Technology cradles and stabilizes the heel at landing while promoting a smooth transition. The midfoot X-groove enhances the adaptability of the sole segment by allowing the heel and forefoot to move independently. Finally, the X-Stud provides multi-directional grip in adverse conditions and on uneven terrain.

    I look for good quality and levels of cushioning… As a sufferer of shin splints I’ve had to really limit any running. But I still look for great cushioning in a running shoe for outdoor boot camp

    Love the look of the shoe! I look for light weight, enough space in the toe area for comfort and stability.
