Product Description

MINIMALIST RUNNING / BAREFOOT RUNNING Say hello to Saucony's new Hattori running shoes - a new range of minimalist running shoes designed and created to give you an unparalleled running experience. The Hattori is a super-lightweight, neutral running shoe and is acclaimed to be Saucony's lightest general purpose running shoe, ever! Featuring a unique 'mitten' like toe box, the Hattori allows your toes to naturally arch, grip and push off, which in turn will give you more power, a comfortable ride and increase muscle power (through continued use and training). And if that wasn't enough, the Saucony team have designed the shoe to further leverage natural toe movement through the use of a visible flex groove in back of the toes and in front of the metatarsals. Featuring sculpted foam of the sole and strategically placed impact cushioning, the Hattori delivers a slight piston effect without ever compromising natural motion. Midsole Height of just 10mm giving you an incredibly close ride, the way it was meant to be Zero Drop - 1:1 ration between the heel and forefoot, meaning there is no difference in hight from the tarmac between your heel and forefoot XT900 Compound - provides great durability on the heelstrike and rearfoot strike respectively The midsole is made up of compression-molded EVA to control pronation and provide metatarsal cushioning. Suggested Mileage 1 to 20 miles per week Weight: 108gms (Size 9) Weight varies according to shoe size)) The Saucony Hattori is designed for those runners demanding a barefoot running experience, and we have to say, Saucony have produced an amazing shoe that feels like no other. So if you're hankering for the natural running experiences, the new Saucony Hattori is your shoe. Please note that due to the design of these shoes, it is highly recommened that you train in these shoes, whilst running in your current shoes. It is not advisable to start running in these shoes from the very start - training of the foot and

Your running regimen breaks into a whole new level of freedom with the ultra-sleek Hattori from Saucony. This minimalist running flat gives you protection and a touch of cushion while maintaining a barefoot level of responsiveness thanks to strategic flex grooves in the outsole. The hook and loop straps let you perfect the glove-like fit for minimal abrasion so your tenth mile is only the beginning.

    For those expecting Hattori to be another barefoot-like shoe on par with VFF: You WILL be disappointed. While with its lightweight construction it may be classified as minimalist footwear, the Hattori is NOT really a barefoot (BF) shoe. The basis for this review is as a Running Trainer/Walking Shoe, and perhaps as a transition from traditional running shoes to more minimal BF shoes.

    I have two pairs of the Hattori, with nearly 130 miles between them, and for longest runs of 7-8 miles. These are really good minimal cushioned shoes that fit the niche between traditional neutral cushioned trainers and BF shoes like Vibram Five Fingers (VFF).

    The Hattori is similar to Nike Free 3.0 in weight, flexibility and cushioning-- but with no heel-toe drop. They have a slightly tighter fit than NF with the slipper-like construction.

    As a smaller framed middle-distance (5K/10K) fore/mid foot striker, this is becoming my favored trainer. They are light, responsive, yet comfortable for short to medium distances on road and trail that I have thrown at them (3-8 miles). My current inventory of running/hiking footwear also include VFF KSO , VFF KSO Treks, Merrill Tough Glove, Nike Free 3.0v2 and Saucony Kinvaras, all with issues for longer runs: The positive heel-toe drop of the Nike Free's bug my achilles, and with with Merrill & VFF I get a burn in the balls of my feet. The Hattori seems to solve both my problems, in that zero drop helps my achilles, and the cushioning eases the impact/burn issue of the VFF.

    One negative that takes off a star: There seems to be a ¼ size variance between my 2 pairs (US size 8.5). To be fair this may be common in many models of shoes, but with the Hattori's slipper fit, the difference is pronounced.

    Size: 9.5 D(M) USColor: Black / Slime
    Here's my review of the Saucony Hattori:


    - Excellent as daily trainer, including for longer distances (13mi+) on concrete.
    - EVA+, aided by the harder rubber under the ball of the foot, is turning out to be more durable than I anticipated: I estimate the Hattori have a 600mi lifespan on my feet
    - Saucony Hattori is faster in races compared to VFF Bikila LS due to more padding (esp. going fast on moderate/steep downhill) while still weighing less than the Bikila LS.
    - Upper is surprisingly more durable compared to Kinvara, perhaps it's the small strip of transparent plastic that keeps my big toe from piercing the mesh (NB I do trim my toe nails often)


    - Can't wear without socks due to chafing, which I have no problem with in Bikila LS.
    - Feet can get rather hot in them on warm days
    - Racing chip or foot pod has to be attached to the back strap
    - Price: Less shoe should be less $$$
    - LC version looks and feels slightly roomier and better

    Some will argue that the Saucony Hattoris have too much padding for a minimalistic shoe, but shoes with little or almost no padding (e.g. VFF) in my experience result in slowing down on many non-concrete surfaces, steep downhill, ... which makes them less suited for racing and tempo runs.
    I think the most important part of a minimalistic shoe are a zero heel-to-toe drop and being ultra light weight.
    Like all minimalistic shoes, they will obviously not work for every minimalistic runner, but I would certainly advise to try out a pair esp. now the price is starting to drop.
    This is a great start by Saucony in the minimalistic range, I hope there will be a Hattori 2.0

    I started running on the five fingers and loved them, but I do a lot of trail running so I started looking for a show with a thicker sole but still maintaining the minimalist feel. I found these on line and loved them! I have put about 200 miles on them and no issues they are the best shoe I have run with. The have a good free feeling to them and they are very light on my feet. I am personally not picky about whether or not they are snug like the five fingers I like that they feel like wearing a slipper. I am usually a 9.5 and that is what I purchased and I had no issues with the sizing they fit very nicely.

    I've been running for the past two years, mostly on Asics Gels. I switched to minimalist shoes in the last few months after plantar fasciitis ("PF") curtailed running activity last fall. I started with Merrell Trail Gloves, and now mostly use the Hattori AWs.

    The PF has (almost!) completely gone now, after a combination of a using a night splint, rest and changing to lower / no drop shoes. As most folks mention, calves burn a bit after the first few weeks on minimalist shoes, but after that, strength builds up and you're good to go. This Sunday, for example, I felt no calf burn after a 14-mile run. I built up to that distance in four weeks, gradually.

    Comparing the two (Trail Gloves, Hattoris), I'd say they each have their strengths. The Merrells are a slightly better fit for me, as they have a greater selection of wide sizes. The Hattoris are a snugger fit, but the top of the shoe material is fairly stretchable, so I haven't felt pinched as I might on other shoes. I like that the Hattoris fill out the sole at the mid-foot level, giving a wider footprint than the Merrells, as this helps on rougher terrain to get purchase. The soles of the Merrells are slightly grippier (Vibram sole, after all!), but on steady surfaces, such as concrete or asphalt, the Saucony's feel great.

    I'd recommend to a friend to try the Hattoris.

    I think others have said this, but running in the Hattoris, certainly the first few times you try them, is fun. They feel a bit like running in socks on well cut grass, with grip!

    I have no complaints about breathability or sweat, as other reviews have mentioned. They are the shoe I prefer to run in right now, and am putting in about about 25-30 miles a week.
