Rated 4 out of 5Â by Stewart Really sad to see it go...
I am a tall man who wears approximately a 13.5 to 14 shoe. While I must admit that this was not the first Saucony shoe I tried, once I found the right fit I was happy that I purchased it. Not one to order shoes online, it took me two tries to get the size correct. This shoe runs a bit big, while other sneakers I've tried in the past run a bit small. My first attempt was to go one size over, to a 15, and when they arrived in the mail they were so big that I could have fit my old running shoes inside of them. When I sent them back I got a pair of 14's, and upon getting them in the mail, and trying them on, they fit me near perfectly.
The Grid has such a classic shape and style, and are surprisingly light for such a beefy shoe, that I am confused why Saucony is deleting them from their product range. I was so happy with pair number one that I am quite happy that I bought a second pair as replacements.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Philip Good running shoe
Bought this for the somewhat low weight and low toe-heel-drop. A great shoe. No problem transitioning from Asic Nimbus 13. The Profile is a lot faster, easier and even cheaper. I guess also a good shoe to transition to lighter, more neutral and less cushioned shoes. Unless you're already running in even lighter and less obtrusive shoes these are a good way to develop your form

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kimmy Best shoe ever

NO BREAKING IN PERIOD for either one of us. Just put them on and GO......

Rated 1 out of 5 Firm and not very Flexible
I got this shoe because I was looking for a good shoe to train in, which also was good for forefoot/midfoot strikes. This shoe is advertised as having great cushioning and flexibility, but I found it be quite firm and not very flexible either. In addition the tread pattern on the bottom is not good on wet surfaces. Wet roads become very slippery. The bootie construction is annoying as well because the laces are spaced further apart and therefore dig into the foot more. Finally the shoe is pretty narrow, it didn't seem bad when I tried it on, but it becomes noticeable when running. I would not recommend this as a running shoe.
