Overview

This shoe ticks all the boxes an over-pronator looking for a lightweight trainer/racer would be looking at. The fit and feel of the shoe is good. The cushioning is nice - you're padded but the ride is neither too soft nor too heavy. The support works well, it is particularly welcome in longer speed sessions or races. But the shoe retains good responsiveness by virtue of the snug fit, flexible forefoot and low weight.

Poor

I found these shoe almost unwearable, the heel tab protruded into my achilles so badly that before I even ran in them I could feel them rubbing. I want to like Saucony shoes but the common occuring theme with all of their shoes seems to be rock hard achilles tabs which curve inwards into the heel, it is just very poor design, nobdy needs that kind of support in that area, all you need is something to pull the shoe on, a loop of material would do the job, why do I always have to take a stanly blade to Saucony shoes heel tabs!
