Best Shoe Ever! - by , Sep 04, 2016
5/ 5 Stars
What hasn't been said about this tremendous shoe. Fits true to size, comfortable, requires little to no break in. I can see why it took 16 months to come out with a new shoe to replace this one. After 5 pairs and 4-500 miles each its tough to find a replacement for something that works so well. Completely synergistic with my feet and running style!

Like everything about this shoe. My fav shoe in 35 years of running. Hope Saucony does not discontinue it.

I needed a replacement for the Mirage which (has been discontinued) and this shoe was recommended. This is a great shoe. They are comfortable, durable and very well designed. They are a great replacement for the Mirage series. I highly recommend this shoe.

Light weight and cushioned - by , Mar 28, 2016

An amazing daily trainer that can be used for faster workouts as well. Light enough for a race day shoe without sacrificing cushion and comfort. The perfect mix between a kinvara and triumph!

Great Shoe that solved knee problems - by , Feb 15, 2016
5/ 5 Stars
I wore Kinvara 4s originally and everything was great (I actually trained and completed a marathon in them no problem). I then switched to Kinvara 5s and immediately started to have knee issues when I got to higher mileage. I went searching for a new shoe because the 6s had come out and 4s were difficult to find. The Zealot Iso's were my answer. Same 4mm drop with extra cushion and only a little more weight. I actually took them out of the box and ran 5 miles in them right away. Since my knee has not been much of an issue. Only bad thing about these shoes is they feel like they might need to be a bit narrower. After a while I developed kind of a dent (bunching) in the fabric right where the shoe lace hole is closest to the toe box on the outside of my foot. This has caused the shoe to sometime rub on the top part of my pinky and 2nd toes. It was not a deal breaker for me but something to be aware of. I run about 20-30 miles a week

Great distance shoe, light but supportive - by , Dec 21, 2015
5/ 5 Stars
I have been progressively slimming down my shoes, going from a Hurricane 14 several years ago to the Kinvara 5, in which I ran a half-marathon PR. I grew to love the 4mm drop, which together with great road feel helps immensely with my pronation, but the Kinvara just doesn't have enough support for me at 13+ miles. I didn't feel comfortable using it to move into the marathon distance. The Zealot seemed like a good compromise and I wasn't disappointed. It feels like more shoe than the Kinvara without being bulky or heavy, and I like that you get similar responsiveness and proprioception as that model, even though there is significantly more cushioning. My only criticism is that the forefoot width seems a bit cramped compared to a Kinvara or Hurricane in the same size 8 - it's not necessarily smaller, it just doesn't seem to allow as much toe splay. I'm hesitant to go up a half-size on my next pair as the ankle fits so nicely, but might have to if the front doesn't loosen up over time. The best would be a Zealot 2 with Everun and a stretchier forefoot! But I do love the Zealot in general, and would recommend it to someone looking for a "beefier" Kinvara.

Excellent lightweight cushioned neutral trainer/racer - by , Nov 30, 2015
5/ 5 Stars
These are the shoes i have been searching for! Always wanted to find lightweight cushioned trainers which can double as racing shoes. I have NB Zante and Kinvara 6 and like them both. Those do perfectly for my 10k training and racing but I find those a bit less shoe for long distance training / racing. Zealot has filled the gap! Love the versatility - works well from 5k to full marathon. Also love the cushioning - some reviews say they are firm but when you run fast enough (e.g. 5min/km) you will find the cushioning deep and resilient. Zante is a bit firm and K6 is a bit soft for me. And again Zealot is in between! Just feeling well protected in them when running fast but they are definitely not slowing you down! They are my go to shoes for 10k and above now

Cushioned but still light - by , Oct 29, 2015
5/ 5 Stars
I am a neutral runner but have a tendency to be a heel striker. The 4mm offset along with the nice cushion seems to have minimized the effects of those heel striking tendencies. I had back pains only about three months ago that would move around between the middle of my back and the lower part. After I got into these shoes the pain eventually went away. I just finished my first marathon (Marine Corps) along with the training cycle leading up to it in these shoes and have experienced no discomfort in my feet, knees, or back. I was also impressed with the right amount of snugness in the toe box to where I had zero blisters after the marathon. These shoes are great, especially because it's hard to find a shoe that combines the 4mm offset, plush cushioning, and light weight. I just bought two more pairs just to have a supply for the next season.

I have used two pairs during my training and racing season for both Road Races and Triathlons. The ISO-Fit upper is great with the speed laces change up for the triathlon transitions. I've also used this shoe for local road races but they are great to use for wherever distance you run!
