Saucony Hattori Guest Review by Frederic Brossard


A few months back I posted my initial thoughts on the Saucony Hattori zero drop running shoes. A number of people have emailed me to ask if I have any additional thoughts on them yet – unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to put very many miles on them, so my initial thoughts have not […]

Saucony Peregrine Review: A Rugged, Low-Drop Trail Running Shoe


Given the fact that the Saucony Kinvara is one of my favorite road shoes (mostly for marathon racing and long runs these days), I was excited last winter when I found out that Saucony would be releasing a trail running sibling to the Kinvara: the Saucony Peregrine.

Saucony Kinvara 2: Comparative Photos and Update Summary

Among these are the Fastwitch 5, Mirage, Peregrine, and most recently the Hattori. The Fastwitch 5 is unique among these in that it is […]

Running Shoe Review: Saucony Kinvara
