The idea is from the insight that people love gifts, especially for free and with a surprise. So we delivered the gift by post without any notice. Imagine you were the person got the surprising gift box. Suddenly, you received the box on which some suspicious message was written, “OOOPS, half of the gift has not come” Then you opened it, found just a half a pair of running shoes inside it.

Afterwards you notice a message that reads:

“Do you remember the last Mizuno marathon? That’s why you’re selected as a lucky runner getting Mizuno Wave Rider for free! The record was not because of your fault, running without Mizuno shoes. This will make you finish faster next time. If you want the other half, upload a photo shot of this half pair box with #?????? (#Mizunohalfpair in Korean) on your SNS and come to the store, 3rd September.
