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 […]

Saucony Peregrine 4 Trail Shoe Review by BikerNate

Saucony Peregrine 4 Red

It’s not very often that there is a bright side to getting injured.  While visiting Performance Health Spine and Sport Therapy to have my Ant. Tib. Tendonitis worked on by Brett, I had a chance to visit with Pete and geek out about shoes for a while.  He asked me if I had any interest […]

Saucony Grid Type A6: First Run Review


I loved the Saucony Grid Type A5. Loved it. I might go so far as to say it’s the best shoe I’ve ever run in. I’m not exaggerating. As I wrote in my review of the A5, what I loved about the shoe was its simplicity. I like shoes that aren’t stuffed to the gills […]

Saucony Kinvara 5 Preview


Update: This shoe is now available and I have posted a Saucony Kinvara 5 review here. Earlier today Saucony posted a preview of the Kinvara 5 on their blog (thanks to Marc S. for the alert!). I was disappointed by the Kinvara 4, with my main issues being the tight forefoot fit and lack of […]

Saucony Kinvara 4 – A Disappointing Update

Saucony Kinvara 4

It pains me to write what I’m about to write, but sometimes you have to be honest and tell a good friend that they are headed in the wrong direction. So, Mr. Kinvara, I apologize for being critical. I know we’ve been through a lot together, but we need some time apart until you get […]

Saucony 2014 Shoe Previews: Virrata 2, Grid Type A6, Peregrine 4, and Mirage 4


My friends over at just posted a series of videos previewing shoes from the 2014 Saucony lineup that were on display at the recent summer Outdoor Retailer Show. Two of my personal favorite shoes were in the mix, including an update to my top shoe from last year, the Saucony Grid Type A5. The […]

Saucony Fastwitch 6 Racing Flat Review


I have a fair amount of history with the Saucony Fastwitch line. The Fastwitch 2 was my first racing shoe, and it was the shoe I wore for 2 of my first 4 marathons. It was also my first real racing flat, and it introduced me to the benefits of lightweight footwear. Two years ago, […]

Saucony Virrata Zero Drop Running Shoe Review


Several weeks ago I travelled a bit over an hour south from my home in New Hampshire to visit Saucony headquarters in Lexington, Massachusetts. The purpose of my visit was twofold. First, I wanted to visit their biomechanics lab and have my form analyzed using their gait analysis setup (force plate treadmill, 3d kinematics – […]

Saucony Virrata Review and Comparison to the Saucony Kinvara 3: Guest Post by Alex Raggers


A few weeks ago I received a message from one of my many footwear spies across the globe. Alex Raggers is a runner from the Netherlands, and to his surprise he recently walked into his local running store to find that they had the new (and much anticipated) Saucony Virrata in stock. Given that I’m […]
