Rated 5 out of 5Â by V. Love this shoe..
Have had 7 pairs - walk /run on trails, this shoe offers excellent support and has held up well. Second most important to me is color, I like a black shoe -hides the trail dirt but looks feminine. Ordered online this time as could not find it at my local shoe store .

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Moonlit8753 Works well for me
I purchased this running shoe because it was clearance-priced plus 20%-off with free shipping, so it was made very affordable to have a second pair of running shoes which I had been wanting to get but could not afford prior. Well, this has now become my primary running shoe. I'm a casual runner (3 miles 4x/wk), but by the last mile of my run, the muscles around my shins and my calves start aching using my previous running shoes (big brand-name, $$$, a gift). In this pair, I don't ache at all during and at the end of my run, and I'm so pleased by that! My only con with this shoe are the laces. Since they're made of nylon, the knot doesn't hold tight for long, and I find that at the end of my run, the fit of the shoe has loosened a bit, but nothing a double-knot won't fix, so it's a very minor issue that I don't mind dealing with. I selected "Average" as far as the durability of the shoe, and "four stars" overall as I've only been running in them for three weeks, so I don't yet know how well they'll hold up with my continued use. I do wish I could buy another pair, but even at the clearance price, I'd need the additional 20%-off to be able to afford it. Still, I'd definitely buy another pair if I could. No aches in this shoe, I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Run happy Thhis shoe has been great.
Saucony shoes are all I will ever buy. They just fit perfectly to my foot and I never get sores or aches and pains. I have about an average arch and medium width. I usually wear a size 6 1/2 to 7 and a size 7 is perfect in this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lori The best sneaker I ever owned :(
I bought these in May of 2012 and it was love at first step:) They were the softest, most bounciest shoes I have ever worn! I work on my feet and have worn them every day for 15 months. My feet have never hurt once and I work six days a week at two very busy restaurants.
My toe area started ripping out so I tried to replace them recently. The Excursion 7's are the opposite of the 6's and offer no cushioning that I can feel. The Excursion 5's have enough cushioning in the heel but not enough past the arch. I wish they didn't discontinue this model:( Has anyone found another Saucony shoe that feels as good as the Excursion 6's did?
