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.

Type A

TYPE A INFOGRAPH

Cushioning

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

Good shoe but not the true A series

I train on asphalt, grass, and astro turf in this shoe. I’ve been a long time wearer and believer of the A5 and A6 series...so sad to see them go. This shoe is of amazing quality as always. It’s also a little bit of a hybrid A5 and A6 but lacks in a few areas that those had: 1. There is a bit more stability on the bottom but for a race shoe, you need the flexibility of the sole and this is too stiff. 2. The tongue is WAY too thick and big for the lightweight, slim, and minimal design of the shoe. It should’ve matched what the A5 and A6 had which was a slim comfortable tongue that NEVER slid around. You didn’t even know it was there. The A series slides all the way to the side and is SO annoying that it’s uncomfortable after a while. 3. Why does the shoe color have to be so neon? Very distracting and not fun to wear but of course bright shoes aren’t my style of training shoe. All-in-all...I’ll be wearing this shoe for 2016 because you can’t find the old versions in my size but PLEASE bring back the A5 and/or A6 series!
