Saucony Peregrine 6 Review: Interesting Update That Needs Some Refinement


While I wouldn’t say I have a long history with the Peregrine line (I’ve never really taken to the shoes), I have run in versions 1, 2, 5 and 6, so I have some sense of the evolution of the shoe. Overall, I feel that it has improved over time.  Saucony overhauled the Peregrine for 2016 […]

Saucony Kinvara 7 Review


The Saucony Kinvara has long been a top option for me among low-drop, lightweight training shoes. I’ve run marathons in the Kinvara, and have had positive experiences with most iterations of the shoe that have come out. Since the arrival of the Kinvara 7 a few months ago, I’ve heard a lot of mixed opinions […]

New Running Shoe Roundup: Road Training Shoes Coming in 2016

New upper on the same platform.  Very nice looking and they said they opened up the toebox on it compared to v1.

Back in early August I had the fantastic opportunity to go to the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City for the first time and check out the new shoes that are coming out late winter/early spring. Below are the road training shoes I had the opportunity to see at the show. Of note, Outdoor […]

New Shoe Roundup: Trail Shoes Coming in 2016

New outsole that if you look closely, you can tell they removed some lugs to reduce weight.  I still think they need to fill in the gaps in the outsole.

Back in early August I had the fantastic opportunity to go to the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City for the first time and check out the new shoes that are coming out late winter/early spring. Below are the trail shoes I had the opportunity to see at the show. Of note, Outdoor Retailer tends […]

Saucony Nomad TR Trail Shoe Review


The Saucony Nomad TR caught my eye last winter when I saw some early pictures previewing the shoe.  Mostly, I was pretty interested to see if it had a wide toebox similar to Altra or Topo shoes.  After getting a pair in myself a couple months ago and getting some miles on them, I can […]

Saucony Kinvara 6 Review: Small Changes, Snugger Fit


Normally an update to a shoe like the Saucony Kinvara would warrant a quick review from me. The model has historically been a personal favorite, and I look forward to trying out each new iteration. The Kinvara 5 was a great update, and on paper it seemed like changes to the v6 would be minor […]

Saucony ISOFIT Zealot Running Shoe Review


I spent the morning reading some of the early reviews of the Saucony Zealot (links at bottom of post). Though every reviewer has a slightly different take, some of the commonalities I found among them were that the shoe was a bit firmer than expected, the ISOFIT upper is unique and well-made, and the fit […]

Saucony Breakthru Running Shoe Review


The Saucony Breakthru is an interesting shoe. It has the look, fit, and responsiveness of a performance racer, the weight and drop of a lightweight trainer, and a reasonable price point at $100. However, after running in the shoe for several weeks, I wonder if the fact that it tries to be something of a […]

Saucony Ride 7 Running Shoe Review

Saucony Ride 7

By Tyler Mathews One of the first reviews that I wrote here on Runblogger was for the Saucony Ride 6. I liked that shoe because it gave me a tool to use in training that I didn’t have to think much about. It was basic in almost every way – basic cushion, basic ride, basic […]

Saucony Shoe Previews: Breakthru, Zealot, Mirage 5, and Peregrine 5

Saucony Breakthru

Update 1/28/2015: I have now posted full reviews of the Saucony Breakthru and Saucony Zealot. A few weeks ago I posted a preview of some 2015 shoe releases from Asics, this week we’ll take a look at some new shoes on the way from Saucony. All of the videos below were produced by at the […]

New Shoe Previews: Brooks Launch 2, Saucony Zealot, Skechers GoMeb Speed 3


Last week my buddy and fellow New Hampshire runner Sam Winebaum attended the Summer Outdoor Retailer Show in Utah. As he does every year, Sam has put together a series of preview posts of running-related products from OR, and he invited me to share some of the images and product info that he posted. I’m […]

Saucony Kinvara 5: Forty Mile Update


A few weeks ago I published a first impression review of the Saucony Kinvara 5 after taking them out for an initial 11 mile run. I’ve now run a bit over 40 miles total on the shoes, and I just returned from a 14 mile run in them earlier today. I though I’d share a […]

Saucony Kinvara 5 First Impression Review


The Saucony Kinvara is one of my favorite running shoe models. It’s basically everything that a shoe should be – pretty simple in construction, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive compared to other shoes on the market. I’d go so far as to rank the original Kinvara up there among my favorite shoes of all time – […]

Saucony Grid Type A6 Sizing Update

2014-04-02 17.26.48

Several weeks ago I posted a first impression post on the Saucony Grid Type A6. In that post I mentioned that the shoe seemed to fit longer and narrower than the A5 (I had both in size 10.5), and I indicated I was hoping to get ahold of a pair in size 10 for comparison. […]

Saucony Mirage 4 Running Shoe Review: Good Choice if You Like a Firm Shoe


I’ve been struggling a bit with how to approach this review of the Saucony Mirage 4. On the one hand, there is a lot that I love about this shoe. On the other hand, it’s simply not been a good match for me. As such, this is going to be a review in which I’ll […]
