With a history of acute plantar fasciitis this shoe has been amazing. Lightweight with support but great flexibility. Wear it both for cross training and tennis.

I'm a loyal Saucony purchaser. This years Fastwitch wasn't one of Saucony's finer moments. Order 1/2 size larger than you normally wear in Saucony. The interior is rough; prior years felt like a slipper. It's heavier and caused myself and a friend an abrasion on the top of our foot during race day.

Awesome lightweight shoe. Great for weight training in the gym. I wear a 5 to 5 1/2 and purchased the 5 1/2 and my toe is pretty much at the top. If your a runner purchase this shoe 1 size up and you will love this shoe.

The shoe is nice, but the padding in the ball of the foot just hits my foot wrong and is super uncomfortable so I am returning the shoe.

These shoes are very comfortable and lightweight and also quite stylish. I've had them for two weeks and have already gotten compliments. I personally love the bright colors. However, they are quite small in the length -- I ordered a half a size up from my normal size and still find them to be a tad snug. The white mesh parts are a little see-through so your socks actually show through, which is no big deal if your socks are white. The bottom of each shoe has text on it: one says "i am winning" and the other says "u r losing" -- supposed to show, I guess, to the person behind you in a race. Seemed a little dumb to me, but someone else liked the idea.

I have been a fan of Saucony since I bought my first pair of Hurricanes, but am now in love with these shoes! As soon as I slipped them on I think I actually heard my feet say "aaaah!" The arch support is amazing, and they feel so stable. They also look great! I get many compliments at the gym. I appreciate the message on the soles, that makes me chuckle every time.

The only reason I cannot rate these five stars is because they were my second pair of Sauconys and they did not feel as great as the Saucony Mirage and a 10 in these is not like the 10 in the Mirage. I can still wear them, just not for running. They are not quite as comfortable as the Mirage. So now I have these cute shoes for running around and a new pair of Saucony Mirages for running. The four stars for comfort was again because of the snug feeling in the toe. I would definitely recommend Sauconys, but I would not buy this particular style for running unless I purchased them in a 10½ and I never wear a size 10½ or 11 in any other shoes.

I only recently began wearing size 11 shoes. I think they are making shoes much smaller &/or my feet have stretched out. I bought these in size 11 then had to order again in 11.5. They fit great! I noticed a lower heel to toe ratio! I so appreciate the heel being lower! I wish more shoes would be made this way. Yes, they are comfy and the purple/citron colors are fantastic! Nice cushion in the bottom and plenty of stretching room in the toes. But I have narrow feet. Lighter than a feather too! I'm thinking of the red color now...but I'm picky about the color red...must be true red...not sure here. Thanks for listening...love the lower heel! Zappos has amazing customer service...the absolute best ever! Thank you Zappos.

Great shoe! I've used Saucony as my running shoe for the past 5 years and as an overpronator, in order to provide the stability I need, I've been plagued with that resulting in having a heavy shoe. However, with the Fastwitch it gives the best of both worlds, providing great stability while being super light! Ran my first 5k in these and was extremely pleased. Would definitely recommend this shoe.

Although I measure a size 8 and wear a size 8 shoe, I usually am most comfortable in a size 8 1/2 sneaker. In the size 8 1/2 in these, my big toe almost hits the tip of the sneaker, so I have to order them in a size 9! I never had to do that before. Also, I was wearing a light weight cotton sock, so if you prefer a heavier sock, you may have to go up a full size to 1 1/2 sizes bigger. Other than that, they felt quite comfortable walking around the house while trying them out. Arch support pretty good for a sneaker, but probably not good enough if you are a severe pronator. The purple is very pretty. I hope the size 9 is in stock soon so I can order a pair.

Wanted to love these but the fit was extremely tight. I have very normal feet and never had a problem before this shoe. Maybe next time I will order a half size larger. Love the color and the style just too tight on me.

I want to love these, but the fabric upper is a little too thin. My big toe sticks up a little and I think I would rub right through them. I sadly had to send them back and try a different pair. I love the brand though.

I have feet that need good support and the local running store tested me and said these shoes would be great. I am an avid runner and the first time I wore these shoes they did not feel quite right. The arch did not fit my feet well and I have actually experienced shinsplints and knee pain caused by these shoes. I am not trying to be a Debbie Downer but just saying if you need good support these shoes may not be the right ones for you as a runner.

I am an over pronator but apperently much more than a moderate overpronator. these shoes were not supportive enough. my first run was comfortable but after my legs hurt in places they had never hurt before and after a couple more runs it was worse. And unfortunately I can't return the shoes because I have used them. They look nice and fit nice for general kicking around but were not great for running.
