I found the support lacking and very uncomfortable to walk in - by , Apr 08, 2013

I would return this show...it was hard inside and lacking support in the arches. I had a pair of Jazz 5000 and LOVED them. This shoe was a huge disappointment

This pair of shoes was not at all the quality of the Saucony brand shoe I wore years ago. - by , Oct 17, 2018
1/ 5 Stars
As with most brands, the quality of this shoe has declined, with the use of materials far inferior to the original Saucony shoes I wore in the 1990s. The shoe lacked the former comfortable cushion and seemed flimsy in comparison.

On sale, but do not buy - by , Aug 29, 2020
1/ 5 Stars
I am a true believer in Saucony sneakers for over 30 years. I was a part time jogger, but mostly a speed walker. I now walk, but not as fast. I bought these shoes on May 8, 2020. I do walk between 30-40 miles a week usually, on flat, even terrain. I have NEVER had any pair of sneakers wear out so quickly and completely as these. I am so utterly disappointed in these shoes. I can only assume that they are meant only for regular use, not walking nor running. I will stay with Saucony, but will only buy from a dealer from now on.

Was hoping it would fit like the Shadow 6000 but it did not. And hoping the women’s size 10 would fit like the men’s size 8.5 but it did not. - by , Dec 28, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
I was saddened several years ago to learn that the Shadow 6000 would no longer be available. I wore them for many years. Because the men’s size in a similar shoe was not available, I took the chance that this one might just fit. Might have been the right size and width but it just did not have the same comfortable fit I was used to, particularly the absence of a good arch support and snug heel compartment. I wore them 1.5mi then gave them to a friend. I lost a good, reliable friend when the Shadow 6000 went away. What do you recommend as the equivalent to my old friend? By the way, the only similarity was the hole that my great toe on each foot makes in the fabric!

Great design and quality - by , May 08, 2017
3/ 5 Stars
The quality on this model is great and the looks are superb, the only problem is that they are too narrow for me, I have been buying Saucony for many years now and never have this issue before, this is the first time I order this model. I felt like I was walking on high heels, the difference on height between the front of the shoe and the heel was too much for me. I like to take long walks at the park and I do not think this shoe will be appropiate for that. I will return this pair but will order a different model, I love Saucony's quality, I still use the first pair I got :0)

The shoe is OK - by , Aug 14, 2018

I bought two pairs, one in red the other in blue. The blue pair fits better. I bought these as a last resort because the Shadow 6000, which I have been wearing for over 20 years and fit perfectly, are now discontinued. The Shadow Original is only just alright. It's surely not as comfortable, as cushioned, or as well made as the Shadow 6000. I keep hoping that the Shadow 6000 will come back into production. It was a very popular shoe and is still in demand. Sadly there's no inventory in the Shadow 6000.

This shoe feels and looks good. - by , Dec 27, 2018

The fit is the normal 1/2 up from usual street shoe. The toe box is roomy and accomadates my 'bending " toes from arthritis. The heel hugs nicely without rubbing. I bought a second pair so I won't have to search for a good shoe.

I have been searching everywhere for new shoes. I love these. I wish they were a little more cushioned but other than that they're perfect. I get a lot of compliments.

Product consistently reliable - by , Jan 14, 2020

The shadow has always been good for my feet. Good room in toe box. Now that some toes are mis-shapen and I had a fractured heel, they need the room even more. But they still look and feel great.
