The Mizuno Wave Rebellion is a brand new and long-awaited shoe from Mizuno. Until recently, Mizuno hasn’t had the “plated shoe” in US markets. While the Mizuno Wave Rebellion doesn’t have a carbon plate, the glass plate is designed for workouts and to run fast.
The Saucony Kinvara 12 is an update to one of the most popular Saucony shoes. It’s been around for a long time, but I’m just going to come out and say it. Previous versions were much more well-loved by Saucony fans. Now the Kinvara has migrated into an ok but not extraordinary shoe from Saucony. Sometimes I wonder if “this is the last year,” but it keeps coming back.
It’s not that the Saucony Kinvara 12 is a bad shoe, but it’s not special anymore. It needs a substantial update. If you liked previous versions of the Kinvara, you’ll probably like this one too.
Recently I tried Punch Gunk. If you are like me, you may never have heard of it before. It is created to be a nonstick and nongreasy topical pain relief. Of course, it isn’t going to solve any “serious injuries,” but you will find fast relief if you find yourself more sore than usual.
I was excited to try the Reebok Floatride Energy 3. I think Reebok is one of the most underrated brands in run specialty. They have come a long way in the last few years and make plenty of great running shoes. Plus, most of their running shoes are durable and at competitive prices.
