Technology

4MM

Saucony 4mm Technology

Shoes with a 4mm heel-to-toe offset deliver a more natural ride, letting your feet and body do more work while relying less on the shoes’ cushioning and stability features.

FLEXFILM

Saucony Flexfilm Technology

A strong, lightweight material is melded to the upper, which allows for fewer layers in the shoe. The result is a seamless, flexible feel.

Amazing shoe I've worn the Saucony Type A for years. Loved the A6. A7 was ok. Both had a few flaws, but still really comfortable, lightweight shoes with a minimal offset (4mm). The A8 fixed all of these flaws in prior generations (holes in the bottom of the shoes that let in water and collected rocks being the biggest) and is now an amazing shoe. My only minor complaint is that the tongue is a little bit short - the top laces creep up to the very top of the tongue. I wear these for every run/race - a fast 5k up to a marathon. I don't run every day now because I do triathlons, but these shoes are comfortable right out of the box doing 10 miles. I don't work for Saucony - but I've left critical reviews of the shoe in the past. These are awesome shoes and you'll love them.
