Rated 2 out of 5Â by VUXC2016 Product used for workouts
I'm a college cross country/track runner and used the fastswitch in mainly threshold runs on grass and repeat workouts on grass and the track. I've had them less than a year now and the midsole has completely torn apart. I have the orange ones, and that black stuff does not last very long. I've ran in the type A series as well, and they lasted so much longer. I wouldn't suggest purchasing these if you want a flat that lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DanSusqu Perfect Flat
I have just had to retire my pair of Fastwitch 6's and they were a great shoe. I put a total of about 800-850 miles on them before they were shot. I wore them as trainers and flats for road races and fast workouts. for the weight the last of the shoe is amazing. I have been wearing Fastwitchs for about 2 years and they a great line for hybrid racer/trainer shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by tanilodelchuco Running shoes my body likes
Although Iâve been running distance since 1977, these are the first âracingâ shoes Iâve ever owned. And in 1980, I was labeled a âterrible pronatorâ by my podiatrist. (Although in 1981, I went back to my âpre-Nikeâ way of running, which I grew up with in the El Paso-Southern New Mexico-Chihuahua area, that is a kind of hybrid way of running.) Iâve been racing since 1977, and Iâve raced over 130 races best I can tell, including at least 30 races over 10k in length, and 6 marathons. I used to finish in the top 4th or top 3rd, usually. Now, Iâm much slower but consistent and Iâm getting ready for a Â½ marathon in November, currently at about 35 miles per week. I also still work out with weights, mainly to keep what little I still have. I yam 5â10 Â½â, and weight about 185 lbs.
So: at this stage, the Wizes at Saucony recommended I try Fastwitch 6. Today was an easy day, and me laigs were a wee bit tired, but I went out early to do 5 miles. The shoes for the most part were a relief. They were a lot fun, actually, and my body liked them fine. I ran faster than I had intended, and there was no negative feeling as per pronation at all. I really like these shoes, and I think I can solve my ptosis problem...see below. (My favorite shoes that I usually wear for level training runs on asphalt are Mirage II, which are just right for my way of running.)
The only problem was a perceived tight fit in the ptosis box. Iâm not churro why, because I havenât had this problem in my Mirages, nor in a new pair of Omni 11s. So, it may be a particular fit problem, or it may be that I just need to gnaw on my ptosis, get the nails shortened.
(For those who donât know anatomy as well as I do, your âptosisâ are them things at the ends of your pfootsis.)
