iBR+ is a supremely lightweight but durable outsole rubber that enhances your shoe’s other cushioning elements.

POWERGRID

felt good but fell apart fast The shoe was a comfortable shoe. I am not sure if it because I am a bigger runner, 6'2" 240 lbs, but the inside heel tore out in less than 3 months of use. This is the second pair of Saucony's that I have had and they both tore in the heels and did not last long. I ony run about 10 to 15 miles a week so they should last a lot longer. The backs of the shoe are a hard plastic and cause blister now. So, if you are a bigger guy this shoe may not be the best one for you.

A bit tight on the top. The meat on ball of my right foot is somewhat deteriorating. It has been painful running and walking period. These sneakers have lots of forefoot padding and its very comfortable, but it is a bit tight on the top of my foot. I don't think I'll be able to wear my smart wool socks. And because of this I need a full run to break them in. The red is stunning and the quality is top notch.

Fun to run Feels great on the foot while running. I'm currently rehabbing my calf from previous injury and this prevents my leg from aching after.

Awesome Shoes I was in the military & ran in whatever shoe felt the most comfortable. However, I never quite had a shoe that fit me correctly & always hurt after running until I decided to get properly fitted 4 months ago. Needless to say I feel like my running is the most pleasant its ever been. I've tried everything from most other companies but this is what happens when you finally get fitted properly.
