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.

IBR+

Saucony iBR+ Technology

iBR+ is a supremely lightweight but durable outsole rubber that enhances your shoe’s other cushioning elements.

Perfect Snappy. Just what I was looking for, for a 2:35ish marathon.

Super light - smooth This shoe fits true to size. It is a perfect road running shoe with just enough comfort. I like it because it truly fits like a glove and the lightweight and breathability make you never want to take them off!! I would recommend them to anyone running high mileage and is looking for a shoe that really molds to their foot! Neutral and natural ride :)

Glad I found this shoe I started with Kinvara, then graduated to Virrata. Love them both. Well, Virrata has been discontinued. Bummer. I wanted a light shoe to run fast with during 1/2 marathons, and Type A6 was the correct answer. I PR'd on my very first race with them. I will still use a more cushioned shoe for training as well as for full marathons (guess I go back to Kinvara for that) but for 1/2's and shorter this is a great shoe.

Versatile and comfortable racing flat This lightweight racing flat has a lot of range. I have successfully used it for 5K, the half marathon, and distances in between. The Flexfilm upper eliminates stitched overlays and provides a supportive, sock-like fit. The shoe’s simplicity might lead one to overlook some great details including a padded, ventilated tongue and an elastic band to tuck your laces under when racing. The shoe’s midsole is a perfect balance of responsive and cushioned. I have found that the leg fatigue that I can experience racing in an overly firm shoe is completely absent in the Type A6. There is also enough under foot to use this shoe for tempo runs and when you require a more responsive, lightweight trainer.
