What’s better than giving the gift of comfort and performance this season with a free pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 16 or Wave Inspire 9 running shoes? Getting a free pair for yourself too! Launched in November, the latest versions of the Rider and Inspire are high-performance daily trainers, and either one would make a perfect holiday gift.
Congratulations to Matthew in New York, our Merry Mizuno Days contest winner. He’ll be giving his wife a new pair of Wave Inspires and running in a fresh pair of Wave Riders for himself. Thank you again to everyone who entered, and a Merry Mizuno Day to all!
The past month has been a busy one here at Running Warehouse, with many new footwear models arriving just in time for the impending madness that is the holiday season (and yes, we realize its only early November). For those of you spending more time running than constantly checking our inventory, here’s a brief overview of some of the more popular kicks that have recently appeared at our doorstep.
Asics Gel Kayano 19
Asics Gel Kayano 19 Men's Shoe
The latest Kayano treats fans to a lighter package, dropping half an ounce in both the Men’s and Women’s versions. It continues to provide plenty of overpronation support as well as plush cushioning for runners looking for a premium ride.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 9 Men's Running Shoe
Mizuno’s Wave Inspire series is one of the most popular daily trainers in the support category. The winning blend of cushioning, a smooth ride, and moderate stability is topped off with a great fitting upper, all coming together into a shoe with a considerable fan base.
With a sizeable decrease in weight expected for version 9, we think the Inspire series will continue to be a big win for Mizuno.
What to Watch For
- Revised Upper: A new overlay pattern increases forefoot flexibility and improves overall fit. The Inspire 9 gets some bold, bright colors too.
- Lower Weight: Both Men’s and Women’s models are slimmed down, with Running Warehouse measuring sample shoes at 10.1 oz (Men’s size 9) and 8.3 oz (Women’s size 8).
- Carryover Platform: The mid/outsole from the Inspire 8 will continue in the updated version.
