This is a plain urban shoe for non-professional runners- people who need stability and padding, not speed. It has a straight last and solid "flat" (that is, without all those unstable cutaways for "flexibility- we don't want flexibility, we need stable support) sole. The sizes are inaccurately small- I wear a 9.5 for all other shoes, I found that I needed a 10.5 to fit the same way for the Shadow 6000. But I was turned on to the product 20 years ago by a very good foot analyst, because I run on pavement, with a heavy gait, and I have a chronic ankle instability issue from a break and surgery 30 years ago. I add one layer of additional foam padding (usually a piece of foam carpet pad cut to shape) and it works perfectly. I have bought about 30 pairs over the years, and it is my standard running shoe.
I am angered when the shoe companies constantly change models and mess up designs- Saucony hires these young marketing guru morons who screw around with the designs and want you to "upgrade" all the time to some new version that is wildly inadequate for anyone but a Kenyan marathoner, and on this shoe a couple of years ago, they messed with the tread, eliminating about half of the rubber. Fortunately, my last pair was returned to the right (traditional) design.
Leave it alone, Saucony, and keep selling the 1994 design, we'll buy them forever.
I am 42, 6' and 160 lbs and average about 30 miles per week. I have worn Asics GTs, Nike Pegasus and Frees, Brooks Pure Flow, and most recently Skechers Go Run Ride 2 and 3.
These Saucony 6000s are not light, but are very comfortable, very cushioned, very durable, and very dependable...meaning they don't change year to year so that you buy a pair and then find out you no longer like them. I've worn out many pairs of these shoe and after occasional "affairs" with other makes and models, come back to these and wonder why I ever left. Even at full retail price these are a great value as they usually last me well over 500 miles and I don't think I've ever actually paid full retail, usually being able to find them for fifty to sixty online.
