ST. LOUIS, Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, RunningShoes.com is hosting a giveaway that comes straight from the heart. The online retailer has partnered with Mizuno to outfit a running duo in new pairs of running shoes.
The shoes up for grabs aren't any ordinary pair of sneakers. They are Mizuno's 15th anniversary limited edition of the Wave Rider. Built for moderate protection with neutral control, the Wave Rider has won numerous awards during its lifespan, including the 1999 Editors' Choice Award and the 2003 Best Update Award from Runner's World magazine. When compared to other Mizuno running shoes, the Wave Rider remains one of its most popular styles.
According to Mizuno, the latest iteration mixes past technologies with a lightweight feel. The Wave Rider includes Mizuno Wave, a technology that combines cushioning with stability. It also features SmoothRide, a technology that has been improved in the Wave Rider by allowing for an optimal level of flex at toe-off and by moving the heel contact point forward, which is said to produce a more fluid ride. The limited edition of the Wave Rider 15 is available in ruby for men and crystal for women.
To win a pair, contestants have been asked to answer the question: What do you love about your running buddy? Whether it's a friend or significant other, RunningShoes.com wants to hear about the ones who inspire you to get off the couch, run faster and go farther.
To enter, answer the question at Running Shoes News in the comments section. The winner will be selected by the staff of RunningShoes.com and announced on Feb. 15, 2012. The winner and his or her running buddy will be awarded pairs of the Wave Rider 15. The giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
