I am a 5k/sprint triathlon athlete. Typically I train with the Saucony Guide and previously raced with the Kinvara. Plainly put, the A6 feels faster than the Kinvara. Excellent energy return with out being harsh on pavement so its very easy to transition from the training in the Guide and running in the A6. The toe box seems a little narrow compared to the Kinvara but that may change with more miles. Having the tongue and heel loops is great for a quick transition in the triathlon. I will be buying these again.

This is my new shoe! A great racing shoe for me for both weight and drop. I have yet to put in a long run but on my five and six mile mid-week runs, they do great. I run all my races in these now. Will probably buy another pair (or two) before Saucony makes changes in the next model. Not much arch support so I wouldn't suggest this as a starter shoe. Need to work into just a bit. I experienced the typical calf stiffness and soreness after the first couple of times but no problems now. Don't have a bunch of miles on them yet (around 70 as of this writing) but I see no abnormal wear and tear.

I purchased these for my 10 year old triathlete son. He loves these shoes. He wears them for cross country practice and to school. They are holding up pretty well. His Brooks Ravenna have more support and are a little more comfortable but he loves how light the A6's are. He wears a size 8 in Brooks and 7 1/2 in Saucony.

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.

Big fan of Kinvara series over years and wanted to try this as a 5k-half marathon shoe. So far so good. Lightweight shoe and better fit then original Virrata. The shoe feels true to size but it's a bit snug on width and I have normal size feet. Very secure lacing system as well.
