Men's Fastwitch 5
liked previous models, but not this one.
I was disappointed with the Fastwitch 5. I was very happy with the previous models I have owned (one model 3 and three model 4’s). I ran this year’s Boston Marathon in the model 4. I ran in the model 5 several times and found them hard, less cushiony, perhaps a bit stiff in the midsole. I read a review online from someone who has loved the Fastwitch from way back, and he had the same reaction. But he was happy with the model 6, so I ordered them, got them a few days ago, and am happy with them. The model 5, for me, is not suitable for running, so I am using them for walking shoes.

This shoe is awesome, it's a hair wider than the Verratda's or A5's, perfect fit for me,

Great Track Shoes
I compete in the Master's Pentathlon and I need a racing flat for the 1500 that doubles as a training shoe. The Fastwitch is totally awesome!!!! I use it for hurdle drills, for speed work, and for track races between 1500 and 5000.
I am 6'2", 180#, so this shoe does not work for me in a road race, but does on XC trails. It's also great on indoor tracks where spikes are not permitted.
Saucony: please bring back the white with lime-green trim :)

Fast and Lightweight
This is my 5th pair of the fastwitch shoes starting with Fastwitch 4 version. They fit well and I love the lightweight racing flat feel of these shoes. I'll be back for more. Great Shoe!!
