Summer is officially here! As we head into the season of sunshine and road races, product manager Tina Danforth has shared her favorite selections for summer. Mizuno wants you to be perfectly fitted and fashionable from head to toe.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race is my favorite race (outside of the Boston Marathon)! In honor of this iconic race, my Product Manager Picks will be dedicated to what you may have seen at the expo and on the starting line:
Tops: Run As One Tees
For the first time, Mizuno will be partnering with three organizations who do amazing work in the community; the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Shepherd Center, and the Equality Foundation of Georgia. At the expo, you’ll find shirts inspired by each organization’s work for sale with a portion of the proceeds going right back to them in support of their work. I cannot pick a favorite so you’ll just have to go to the expo to see them in person!
Footwear: Peachtree 52nd Wave Rider
This year’s Peachtree 52nd Wave Rider found inspiration from the Constitution. You’ll see the words “E Pluribus Unum”, “USA”, and “United States of America” sublimated on the white upper. There is a surprise and delight on the medial side of both shoes, featuring red stripes on one pair and blue stars on the other pair. Our resident designer, Kim Freiburger, took this theme and ran away with it (pun intended, definitely)!
If you were our product manager, would your picks be the same? Let us know at @MizunoRunningUSA.
