Love this shoe - colors are great and it is very lightweight and comfy - no "break-in" needed. Size was a bit small. I normally wear a 7 in an athletic shoe and have a somewhat narrow foot. Had to return it for the 7.5 and it is not long at all.

These where the First pair of Saucony shoes that I have owned. At first I thought they where the most comfortable, light weight shoes, however they fell apart after two months. The sole came off the bottom of the shoes. I think a good pair of running shoes should last longer then two months. I was not very impressed with the quality and will not be buying another pair of Saucony's.

Love this shoe! My new favorite. If you are looking for a flat running shoe with minimal support, this is a great one. It is extremely light and flexible. This shoe is NOT meant to provide cushion and support, so I don't understand the complaints about it not having support/cushion...it's not supposed to. While I think it's great for running, I also love this shoe for Crossfit workouts. I am not a fan of the barefoot feel and look in other shoes, but this shoe is flat and minimal yet still fits and looks like a regular running shoe and comes is fun colors. I always go up a half size with Saucony.

I just returned my pair of Saucony Grid Type A5 to Zappos. Naturally with Zappos--no problem. I am so surprised at these Saucony shoes. Typically, Saucony is simply the only fitness shoe I ever purchase. This particular pair, however, had no support whatsoever, no heel height for any protection from impact, ran way too small ; all it had were really cute colors.

Great shoe but I needed to exchange for half size larger. I've worn Saucony's for years using my custom orthotics but required larger size in this style

I'd also recommend: New Balance

First I exchanged this shoe for a half size larger and then had to exchange again for a full size larger. Usually I can count on Saucony to fit well with my usual size. I love the lightweight but so little support, but I use them for walking, not running.
