Love the BOA lacing system - by , May 02, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
Love these shoes. I had previously run in the NB Gobi shoes, and the features are fairly similar, although the Switchbacks are a little wider. The BOA system allows you to customize your fit to adapt to different sized feet! I would recommend the Peregrine for a narrower foot, which is also a great trail shoe.

I got my pair in Purple. Gorgeous pair. Feel light and great on my feet. Only down side is the blisters on my heels when I take them out for a jog. Will try with thicker socks next jog. Still love them.

Great! Runs a 1/4 size short - by , Dec 04, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Love the feel under my feet, love the BOA lace up...my favorite! Love the look, I got the purple (LSU Fan 😁) Haven't used them as a true trail shoe yet. I did run a 5k in them, the terrain I ran on was not what this shoe was designed for, however. Over all, awesome.

Poor quality - by , Sep 09, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
I was really happy with these shoes until they ripped out with only 88 training miles on them. I planned on using them for a 100k in October, but they're definitely not built for ultras if they rip out after such low mileage. Disappointed because I loved the lacing system.

Love the BOA feature - by , Aug 01, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Super comfortable! I was unsure whether the BOA feature could tighten the lace adequately, so this was just one of three pairs in this particular order. As it turns out, I LOVE the feature and for those of us with arthritic fingers, it is truly a wonderful invention. I am now returning the other two and will be ordering another pair of these. An added bonus, makes my large foot look smaller! Please add more colors to the arsenal. Thank you.

Love BOA lacing - by , Jul 31, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
The shoe is lightweight and grippy. Good tread for the trails and I can feel the ground because they are supple. Quick on and off and adjusting laces on the go is the best part about the shoe. They run a 1/2 size bigger than expected. Return policy is awesome . Unfortunately the heals blistered the backs of my ankles pretty bad - not enough padding and the seams aren’t smooth. Once my heals heal - going to give them anther go with thicker socks because I really like the shoe minus the blisters, and would like to use them for Xterra off-road triathlon

Amazing all around trail to road shoe. - by , Jun 07, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I bought mine on a bucking trip and wore them more than any other shoes I brought. Light weight, excellent grip on rocks and trail, comfortable with plenary of toe box space. I have a wide toe box and this shoe is very accommodating. Saucony always comes through for me, I’ve been a steadfast fan since my first pair IV Varata’s. The lacing system on the Switchback was great for adjusting.

Zippy little trail shoe - by , May 08, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
This is an incredibly lightweight trail shoe. I enjoy being able to adjust the tightness on the fly. I recently ran a 50k in this shoe, through many water crossings and it dried out so quickly. The shoe is very minimal and the tread on the bottom is designed to keep your shoes from packing mud on the bottom and getting heavy. I would love to see Saucony add color options to this shoe in the future.

From Altra to Saucony - by , Apr 13, 2019

Ran In Altra for over 15 years, decided that I maybe time to switch. Wow! These are amazing! It’s been an easy transition so far. Went for 10miles today and loved them! Very light weight and great foot comfort. This may sound like a stupid question but how do you “loosen” the shoe lace? Sorry just got them yesterday 🤣

Thanks for the awesome review! Great question about the BOA lacing system too! If you pull out on the disc you should hear a pop - that will release the lace. To tighten press the disc back in and dial to the desired setting. Give us a ring at 800.282.6575, we are here to help!

Best Trail Shoe Ever! - by , Mar 14, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
The switchbacks are FAST on trails. I ran a trail race in mud,ice, and snow- the boa lacing system kept the shoe secured to my feet and I didn’t have to worry about laces! The support and cushion is amazing and I loved the grippy sole. I have previously run in Saucony peregrines and the switchbacks are a great alternative! I can’t wait to get them in a new color!
