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.


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.


Saucony iBR+ Technology

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

Type A



The underfoot feel and amount of impact protection provided by the compressing materials between the foot and running surface.


The level of pronation control built into the shoe. Pronation is the inward rolling of the ankle through the gait cycle.


The difference in height between the heel thickness and forefoot thickness of the shoe.

excellent lightweight racer/trainer

Great shoe, true to size, nice snug fit, superb insole stability (no slippage), laces stay put in the knot and a nice responsive ride. I looked for a replacement for my New Balance MRC1600 V2, which is discontinued, and I found the Saucony Type A to match the characteristics of my former favorite shoes. They have a better outsole. these consist of three big sheets of "sticky rubber" at the proper thread instead of knobs welded on plastic sheets. The insole does not slide when doing sprint workouts, and the laces are sticking better in the knot. Another difference is that the shoe is slighly more flexible yet still very responsive. The grip of the outsole is remarkable under wet conditions. Slight disadvantages are the stonecatcher holes under the toes, but that does in general not pose (any) problems on asphalt or tracks and the limited color options. They are slightly heavier than my former favourite, And a last "disadvantage" of these shoes are is that you wanna go fast, its difficult to resist. These will certainly become my favorite trainers for the future.
