I ordered these shoes, received them in 3 days and couldn't be happier with them. They're a perfect fit, very comfortable, and look good. I was a competitive long distance runner in the 1960s & 70s, a casual runner in later decades and I know what I like in running shoes. But, I somehow got older and now, after having surviving some life threatening health issues, I'm mostly using these shoes for walking, light running, and casual wear. These shoes are not overbuilt nor underbuilt, nor overdesigned. They're lightweight, have very good support, the cushioning is just right, and they don't look complicated & gaudy.
I used Adidas in the 1960s, Nike in the 70s, then New Balance & Saucony from the 80s to the present. For the past 15 years I used mostly NB 990s and Saucony Shadow 6000s. Lately I've had problems of fit & comfort with New Balance. Now I'm back to Saucony and so far very happy with these Shadow Originals. It's an all around good shoe and the retro look is particularly nice.
