Since November 2nd after purchasing my Prophecy 3’s I’ve been rocking them like they were the shit…. Well, that was until I ran my first Half of the year and that totally changed my mind. But before I get into that, let me give you the good stuff that I liked about them. The Design is EPIC. I love the coloring, The idea of taking a Japanese blow fish into consideration on the markings, and they truly are a comfortable shoe for low mileage…… Now, that brings me to the bad of these shoes. Since March I have ran 6 halves… Pretty much all back to back. PR’ing every single time I ran. But thank god I had paced myself faster in the first half of a race because by mile 10 I felt as though I had no shoes on my feet and I was straight hitting pavement barefoot. IT SUCKED.. It was not comfortable what so ever. At the Long Branch Half I was pacing pretty friggin good and I was digging the vibe through out the whole entire race and at mile 10 my feet fell apart….. 2 weeks after that I did that Brooklyn half and by mile 9 my feet had enough. I felt something pop in my foot and Game Was OVER!!…. I had to walk the rest of the race.. I was SOOOO upset! and my feet, well they are still recovering. I guess for now these sneakers will become more of an everyday shoe than a running shoe. I was soooo hoping these would be my IT!!!
– on a side note, I did call mizuno to see what they could do for me… and well, never got a phone call back nor an email. Sweet!
