Saucony Kinvara TR Trail Shoe: First Run Thoughts

saucony-kinvara-tr-trail-shoe-first-run-thoughts-21

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time you know that I’m a big fan of the Saucony Kinvara running shoe – it’s the shoe that has carried me through my last two marathons, and is a personal favorite for long runs on the road. Lately, however, I’ve been doing a lot […]

Saucony Kinvara 3 Review

saucony-kinvara-3-review-21

I’ve done something rather unusual for me this past week plus: I’ve run over 40 consecutive miles in the same shoe. Given the size of my shoe collection and the number of active reviews I’m typically working on at a given time, it’s extremely rare for me to go even a few consecutive runs in […]

Saucony Cortana Running Shoe Review

saucony-cortana-running-shoe-review-21

Saucony has done an excellent job diversifying their shoe offerings over the past year, filling out both the zero drop and 4mm drop niches. I’ve previously reviewed the Hattori, Kinvara, Mirage, Fastwitch 5, and Peregrine – that leaves the Saucony Cortana as the lone shoe among Saucony’s mainstream, low-drop running offerings that I have yet […]

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

saucony-peregrine-review-a-rugged-low-drop-trail-running-shoe-21

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. You can tell from the photos included in […]

Saucony Kinvara 2: Comparative Photos and Update Summary

Well, I broke down and purchased a pair of Saucony Kinvara 2’s. My original pair are still in pretty decent shape, despite having run two marathons and ~200 miles on them (I don’t tend to accumulate a lot of miles on individual shoes given all of the reviews I do – these have the most […]

Saucony Mirage Running Shoe Review

saucony-mirage-running-shoe-review-21

Over the past week I’ve posted reviews of two low-drop shoes from Saucony – the 5 mm drop Fastwitch 5 and the zero drop Hattori. Next up is the Saucony Mirage (disclosure – these were free media samples provided by the manufacturer). Of these three shoes, the Mirage is probably the most similar to the […]

Saucony Hattori: First Look Review of Saucony’s First Zero Drop Shoe

UPDATE 7/30/2012: Saucony has released a much-improved, lace-up update to the Saucony Hattori – read my Saucony Hattori LC review here. One of the coolest parts of the Boston Marathon weekend experience was the Expo – it was a bit overwhelming for a gear junkie like me to be surrounded by the latest offerings from […]

Saucony Fastwitch 5 Running Shoe Review

saucony-fastwitch-5-running-shoe-review-21

Update 4/2013: This is a discontinued model, read my Saucony Fastwitch 6 review here. Over the past few months I’ve been putting miles on several new reduced-heel shoe offerings from Saucony. 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

This is a somewhat long and unorthodox review, so I’m going to begin with an unorthodox introduction. I remember back in middle school we used to have a police officer come to class and talk to us about the dangers of drug use. One of the things he used to discuss were “gateway drugs” – […]
