The A6 is a solid shoe, meant for 5k-10k runs, but not a shoe I would wear for a half marathon or longer distances. Very light weight and great looks. The shoe is very breathable and good for hot days. Overall, if you are looking for something that you can race in and lighter than Kinvara series, it's a good shoe. With that said, it runs a touch snug and is a bit narrow; even for someone with a 9.5 size shoe and typically sized foot.
I am very impressed with two things. 1. The shoe 2. Zappos customer service. The shoes are very nice, they look nice and wear comfortably. I typically wear a 15 4e but apparently this brand runs big. So, Zappos lets me return them no problem and free shipping birth ways is a huge plus. E shoes are also the lightest pair I've ever worn. Excellent shoes and recommend them to anyone.
Because of the reviews I read, I thought this sneaker would be perfect for me. I especially read the review where she wrote, "I just finished five months of physical therapy for having anterior and posterior tarsal tunnel surgery, plantar fascia release, heel spur removed, and 1st metatarsal spur removed." I can't stress enough that even if your situation has been similar to someone else's, the feel of a shoe is entirely individual! (This is where Zappos is excellent because they allow you to try and return it if it doesn't work out.) This shoe did fit perfectly (I have a narrow heel and a wide toe area), but my heels hurt severely when wearing this shoe in the house for several hours. I tried them in the house again the next day with heel inserts and the shoe still wasn't comfortable. I am returning them. As always, Zappos is incredible and I will order from them always, just not this shoe.
In 1977, after many long years being kept a close secret, Saucony® men's shoes and women's shoes were recognized by a small group of serious runners and received an award given by a US magazine. Stemming from that day, Saucony® shoes and clothing have built a reputation for high quality and innovative technical performance for which it is known today.
Four years later, the Saucony® Jazz O, the most popular Saucony (now Saucony® Original) shoe to be made, was launched and in 1991, offered a midsole comprising both cushioning and stability-GRID® resulting in men's and women's shoes that delivered a superior ride.
At Saucony®, they exist for runners. Runners inspire them, bringing new ideas and force the Saucony® brand to be better inside and out. They are the inspiration behind the design and engineering of Saucony's best-made products. Runners keep them competitive, hungry and driven but mostly, honest.
Whether in a conference room, or out on a lunchtime run, Saucony® employees are constantly talking about and arguing about their running clothing, shoes and accessories. They are passionate about their products and run in every product they make. This focus and passion fuels them to create the best Saucony® running pieces on the planet. And they keep an eye toward the future when producing Saucony® kid's shoes. Doing so allows them to come to work each day knowing they've done everything to make runner's lives, regardless of age, just a little bit better.
At Saucony®, a good day is when they get to run. A great day is when they inspire someone else to run.
